Jenrry Mejia works four scoreless innings in first appearance since 2015

A piece of news that has been lost in the New York Mets’ disastrous season is the fact that one time closer Jenrry Mejia was granted reinstatement after being banned for life for steroid use. Mejia is eligible to play in the big leagues again in 2019, so the Mets have been permitted to let him pitch in minor league games this year in order to get into shape for spring training. The first of those appearances came this week for the Mets’ Dominican Summer League affiliate, where Mejia worked four scoreless innings and struck out three, MetsMerized’s Michael Mayer reports.
