New York Mets SP Jenrry Mejia (elbow) is dealing with bone spurs in his right elbow and might need surgery after the season. Manager Terry Collins thinks Mejia will soon have surgery, ending his season. "I can't say I know for sure, but it certainly doesn't look very good," Collins said about Mejia pitching again this season. Mejia wasn't at any harm by pitching through the pain in his elbow.
SP Carlos Torres could be asked to start against the Detroit Tigers Friday, Aug. 23, in Mejia's spot. Another option would be for Mejia's turn to be skipped and SP Matt Harvey to go on Friday. The team prefers to give SP Zack Wheeler an extra day of rest to preserve his innings, though. Collins said that September call-ups would likely be plugged into the rotation instead of Torres. SPs Rafael Montero, Noah Syndergaard and Jacob deGrom are unlikely to be among that group, however, because they are facing innings limits.
Fantasy Tip: Torres may be a short-term NL-only option but nothing else. Any minor league pitcher that is tasked to fill out the rotation in the season's final month likely won't be fantasy-relevant, either.

New York Mets SP Jenrry Mejia (elbow) left his start Saturday, Aug. 17, against the San Diego Padres after three innings due to elbow discomfort.

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.

New York Mets SP Jenrry Mejia will stay in the starting rotation and give the team a six-man rotation so that they can limit the innings of SPs Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler.
Fantasy Tip: Mejia had a solid season debut against the scuffling Washington Nationals Friday, prompting the Mets to keep him in the bigs. It won't be a cake walk for the rest of the season, though, for Mejia. For now, add him in NL leagues and keep him on your radar in deep mixed affairs.

New York Mets Ps Jeurys Familia (biceps) and Jenrry Mejia (forearm) have both suffered setbacks in their return from injury. Familia has more issues with biceps tendonitis after making a pair of rehab outings with Single-A St. Lucie, but the team is optimistic he can get back on a mound this weekend and then move to Triple-A Las Vegas. Mejia had a flare-up of his forearm issue after making two rehab starts, and the team will keep him off the mound.
