According to the Mets, Jenrry Mejia underwent an MRI this morning at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan, and the report revealed he has a rhomboid strain of the right shoulder blade.
Mejia will be shutdown from throwing until he has fully recovered, and will miss the rest of the 2010 season.
At the very least, there is no structural damage in the shoulder, which is a very good thing. That said, it’s the second shoulder injury he’s had in the last couple of months…
Update, September 16, at 7:00 am:
Jenrry Mejia told Dan Warthen that this recent back injury is different than what he experienced this summer in Double-A, according to ESPN.
