Jenrry Mejia told the coaching staff that his arm is getting a little tired, Terry Collins said before Tuesday’s game.
Collins said he would likely not use Mejia on Tuesday due to him pitching in two long outings recently.
Mejia allowed one earned run on three hits, two walks and two strikeouts in 1 1/3 innings on Monday night. He needed 26 pitches to get through his assignment. Mejia needed 14 pitches to get through his inning on Sunday, and another 18 to throw his 1 1/3 innings on Friday.
Collins said that even though Mejia previously started, he’s concerned about overusing the pitcher and asking him to get ready too often.
