Mets RHP Jenrry Mejia has yet to throw a bullpen session, but he’s long tossing and on schedule for Spring Training, the team’s Director of Latin American Operations, Juan Henderson, said (Castillo, Feb. 3).
Mejia is expected to compete with Daisuke Matsuzaka, John Lannan and others to be the team’s fifth-starter.
“He’s on the right track,” Henderson said. “We are very happy with what we’ve seen so far with his progress. So he should be fine and ready to compete in the states.”
Mejia had surgery in August to remove bone chips from his elbow.
