Jenrry Mejia, who pitched a scoreless bottom of the 12th inning during Thursday’s loss, is dealing with a right calf issue.
Terry Collins said that Mejia is available to pitch on Friday, if needed.
Mejia completed the 12th inning, but was shown in the dugout between innings showing manager Terry Collins and others the calf on Thursday. After the game, Collins said that the issue was the reason why Mejia wasn’t sent out for the 13th inning.
Mejia was told by team trainers that the issue is ‘nothing that serious’ (Vorkunov, August 7).
