Jenrry Mejia is scheduled to return to the mound today for the first time since Tommy John surgery last May. Mejia will proceed gently, according to pitching coach Dan Warthen. The right-hander is scheduled to toss only 15 pitches. And he will do so from the slope, not atop the mound -- and with the catcher moving closer than 60 feet, 6 inches.
