Projecting Mets’ Bullpen When Mejia Returns

Although Bobby Parnell has pitched well for the Mets since coming off the disabled list, I’m figuring Jenrry Mejia will assume to the set-up role to Jeurys Familia when he’s activated from his suspension next week. I thought the Mets would sever ties with Mejia after he was nailed for PEDs, but the erratic performance of their bullpen made that implausible. However, should the...

What should the Mets do with Jenrry Mejia?

Mejia’s Much-Needed Return Draws Near

The Mets are 66 games into the season, which means that only 14 games remain on Jenrry Mejia‘s 80-game PED suspension.

New York Mets get mixed news on Jenrry Mejia
