Mets | Jenrry Mejia suspended for 162 games

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 15:35:40 -0700

New York Mets RP Jenrry Mejia received a 162-game suspension Tuesday, July 28, after he failed a second test for performance-enhancing substances.

Fantasy Tip: Mejia was supposed to begin the season as the Mets closer, but he ended up playing in just seven games after making his return from the first suspension July 12. Mejia won't begin the 2016 season with any fantasy value, and he'll need to have a spot to return to in order to be an option later on in the year.

Mets | Jenrry Mejia activated

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 15:48:43 -0700

New York Mets RP Jenrry Mejia has been activated from an 80-game suspension for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs. The Mets demoted RP Logan Verrett to clear a roster spot.

Fantasy Tip: Mejia had been the Mets' closer before he was suspended, but he'll face the tough task of climbing over Bobby Parnell and Jeurys Familia on the depth chart. Owners shouldn't be too concerned with Mejia at this point, but he will become a consideration for save opportunities if Familia starts struggling.

Mets | Jenrry Mejia set to rejoin team

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 16:30:20 -0700

New York Mets RP Jenrry Mejia is set to regain the team during their series against the San Francisco Giants as his 80-game suspension for performance-enhancing drugs is coming to an end. He made his final rehab outing for Class AAA Las Vegas Sunday, July 5.

Fantasy Tip: With Jeurys Familia performing very well in the closer's role in the first half of the season, it seems highly unlikely that Mejia will have a shot at recording any saves, at least in the foreseeable future. He'll also likely be behind Bobby Parnell in the pecking order, so Mejia doesn't have much fantasy value at all.

Mets | Jenrry Mejia to work his way back

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 15:09:04 -0700

New York Mets RP Jenrry Mejia pitched a scoreless inning in the Gulf Coast League Tuesday, June 23. Mejia's suspension for performance-enhancing drug use is set to expire July 7.

Fantasy Tip: Mejia will have his work cut out for him to reclaim the closer's role he had at the beginning of the season. Jeurys Familia has been dominant with Mejia out of the lineup, and Bobby Parnell is also in the Mets' bullpen. Mejia will be worth keeping an eye on, but he won't be a fantasy option unless he reclaims the job.

Mets | Jenrry Mejia to begin throwing

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 05:31:17 -0700

New York Mets RP Jenrry Mejia (elbow) will begin a throwing program in around 10 days. Manager Terry Collins said he'll find a place for him in the bullpen somehow.

Fantasy Tip: Mejia isn't eligible to return from his 80-game suspension until July, but he has a long hill to climb to be entrusted in the closer role again.

Mets | Jenrry Mejia suspended 80 games

Sat, 11 Apr 2015 14:50:38 -0700

New York Mets RP Jenrry Mejia has been suspended 80 games for testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug.

Fantasy Tip: Mejia was placed on the 15-day disabled list earlier in the week and will now miss a few months because of the suspension. Jeurys Familia could be the leading candidate for the closer role with Mejia out, and owners should consider adding him if he is available. Owners may want to stash Mejia on their bench if case he regains the closer role when he returns.

Mets | Closer role could become fluid for Mets

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 14:10:09 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia is the front-runner to close games with RP Jenrry Mejia (elbow) headed to the disabled list, according to manager Terry Collins. However, Collins noted he may piece it together and use left-handed RP Jerry Blevins or another southpaw depending on matchups.

Fantasy Tip: Familia is a must-add arm, and for those desperate for saves, Blevins and even Buddy Carlyle -- who recorded the save in the last outing -- could be worth speculative adds. Bobby Parnell (elbow) is also working his way back and is expected to return to the closer role when healthy. All said, the Mets bullpen projects to have all the makings of a committee.

Mets | Jenrry Mejia shut down for 10 days

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 14:02:05 -0700

Updating previous reports, New York Mets RP Jenrry Mejia (elbow), who was placed on the disabled list Tuesday, April 7, will be shut down for at least 10 days after being diagnosed with posterior elbow inflammation in his right arm. Closing duties in the meantime will likely fall to RP Jeurys Familia. Familia pitched a perfect eighth inning Monday, April 6, and his fastball hit 98 mph.

Fantasy Tip: Familia will be a popular waiver wire acquisition this week for those in need of saves in the early going. Because of the notable injury history for Mejia, Familia's stay in the closer role could be extended.

Mets | Jenrry Mejia lands on DL

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 13:19:41 -0700

New York Mets RP Jenrry Mejia (elbow) was placed on the disabled list Tuesday, April 7, after having stiffness and pain in his right elbow Monday, April 6. X-rays and an MRI exam came back negative, though, and he received a cortisone injection. His DL stint has been backdated to Sunday, April 5. RP Jeurys Familia is expected to serve as the closer with Mejia out, with RP Carlos Torres as the main setup man.

Fantasy Tip: Saves seekers need to quickly run to the waiver wire to put in a claim on Familia, even if it's for the short term. Mejia has a history of arm problems, and he may struggle upon his return.

Mets | Jenrry Mejia may avoid DL

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 11:07:16 -0700

Updating previous reports, New York Mets RP Jenrry Mejia (elbow) has significant swelling in his right triceps, but there is some thought he may not need a disabled list stint.

Fantasy Tip: It's possible that the cortisone injection could remedy the issue, but there doesn't seem like valid reasoning to risk it when it would save him about a week of DL time. Jeurys Familia is expected to close games in the interim and should be picked up universally.
