Mets | Jenrry Mejia wants to start

New York Mets SP Jenrry Mejia (elbow) said he prefers to start, and he'll have the opportunity to compete for the fifth starter position in spring training this year with the likes of SPs Daisuke Matsuzaka, John Lannan, Rafael Montero and Jacob deGrom. "The only thing I know is that's going to be a competition -- because I'm here, my arm feels good," Mejia said. "I'll be ready to be there. Whatever they want me to do, that's what I have to do. But I want to be in the fifth spot. They've got to let me know." He's already thrown two bullpen sessions and will throw a third Wednesday, Feb. 12. Mejia isn't having any ill effects from the surgery he had in August to remove bone spurs from his elbow.
