Mejia shelved for season.

Jenrry Mejia has a right shoulder strain and will be shut down for the remainder of the season. It’s his second shoulder injury of the year and you have to wonder if how he was handled this year was a contributing factor.

The Mets have to be cautious with him in spring training, perhaps to the point of being overprotective. This is a valuable commodity, one groomed as a starter, then had his role changed.

It’s only speculative, of course, but how he was handled this season has to be a factor in the bad news we have this morning.

  1. This is proof positive that warthen and M&M have no clue ..
    Also the pitch count and crap needs to be thrown out. talk to the old time pitchers and get these kids back on track with proper pitching and training.

  2. yeah.

    but jerry was the one who forced mejia to be up as a reliever rather than in the minors learning to be a starter.

    on the one hand it was good for his confidence, because he knew he can get them out. on the other they rushed him to start in the minors because the team sucks.
