Mejia has strong start
By Matt Ehalt
Jenrry Mejia threw six innings of one-run ball for Single-A St. Lucie Monday night. He gave up just three hits and struck out seven over his six innings, with the lone run coming on a home run. He did not walk a Bradenton batter in his strong outing.
Mejia made his second start for St. Lucie. In his first start, he allowed two runs over five innings on four hits. He's working his way back from Tommy John Surgery. The Star-Ledger reported the Mets intend for Mejia to get three starts in the minor and then decide whether he will join the team as a reliever of a starting pitcher.
