Jenrry Mejia, who tossed three innings in the Gulf Coast League on Wednesday in his first official game action since straining the back of the rotator cuff while working in Double-A Binghamton's rotation, was so impressive in the performance he will be moved to a higher level of the minors, outside of Port St. Lucie. Mejia regularly registered 96-98 mph with his fastball during the outing. He allowed one run on four hits and a walk while striking out three.

Also on the move: Sean Green. The reliever, who landed on the DL with the Mets on April 11 with what turned out to be a fractured rib, will continue his rehab with Triple-A Buffalo beginning Saturday. Green's 30-day rehab clock began July 15, when he appeared in a Gulf Coast League game.

The Mets have no immediate plans to promote Ryota Igarashi, who has a 4.66 ERA and one save in nine appearances with Buffalo.
