I expect Mejia to need time, since he just arrived to camp and here he is throwing in a game. However, he needs to progress quickly, because there is a distinct chance he or Jeremy Hefner are in the starting rotation to start the season, in the event Johan Santana suffers another setback.

The Mets host the Cardinals tomorrow at 1 pm in Tradition Field, which can be seen live on SNY.
