Mets | Jenrry Mejia velo drop intentional

New York Mets SP Jenrry Mejia told reporters Tuesday, Aug. 6, that his right elbow didn't flare up after his start against the Colorado Rockies the way it did against the Miami Marlins last week. He said he's holding back a bit of his velocity so he doesn't feel discomfort.

Fantasy Tip: Mejia will need offseason surgery on his throwing elbow. Depending on the effectiveness of his recovery, he could find his way into consistent, back-end value in cavernous mixed leagues. The former top prospect could have a Julio Teheran-esque resurgence with a few tweaks.
