New York Mets SP Jenrry Mejia allowed four hits and three walks with seven strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings in a win against the St. Louis Cardinals Monday, April 21. He extended his career-high scoreless streak to 13 2/3 innings.
Fantasy Tip: Mejia, who has 25 strikeouts through 22 2/3 innings, has long had potential, but injuries have held him back a bit. He is now healthy and showing what he can do, and that's quite a bit. Fantasy owners in all formats can use a pitcher of his caliber.

New York Mets SP Jenrry Mejia (forearm) came away with a clean bill of health after visiting with a team doctor Sunday, March 30. He is expected to start against the Cincinnati Reds Friday, April 4, barring a setback.
Fantasy Tip: Health and command will determine how effective Mejia will be. He has electric stuff and should be owned in all NL-only leagues. Keep in mind that he hasn't gone over 95 innings in a season, so he will have his innings limited.

If New York Mets SP Jon Niese (elbow) is unable to make his scheduled start against the Cincinnati Reds Sunday, April 6, SP Daisuke Matsuzaka could be recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas to make the start.
Fantasy Tip: Matsuzaka pitched well during spring training, allowing nine runs (eight earned) and 25 hits over 23 1/3 innings in six starts, with four walks and 25 strikeouts. However, he lost the competition for the No. 5 spot in the rotation to Jenrry Mejia. That being said, he should be back in the majors sooner rather than later and could be worth a gamble in NL-only leagues.
