Mets RHP prospect Jenrry Mejia has started to face like hitters in Port St. Lucie, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York.
Mejia underwent Tommy John Surgery on his right elbow last May.
Meanwhile, Rubin also says D.J. Carrasco has begun throwing off a mound.
Carrasco twisted his ankle during Spring Training.
However, Pedro Beato, who was placed on the disabled list with right rotator cuff inflammation, is recovering “slowly,” and Chris Young has yet to face any hitters.
