News: Mejia gave up a lone hit in a scoreless ninth inning against the Braves, recording his 19th save of the season in the process. Impact: Felled by issues with back tightness for much of the last week, Mejia seems to have righted things on that front and reclaimed his closer's role. The hard-throwing righty plans to continue pitching through a sports hernia the rest of the season, which may still put him at risk of missing further time if his condition worsens. For that reason, it may be worthwhile to hold on to Jeurys Familia as a ninth-inning handcuff.(RotoWire, )

News: Mejia (back) returned to the mound Sunday, tossing a perfect eighth inning against the Dodgers. Impact: Mejia's last outing came Monday against the Cubs, as he has been dealing with some back tightness. The injury didn't appear to be affecting him Saturday.(RotoWire, )

News: Mejia was unavailable Wednesday due to back tightness, reports. Impact: The tightness crept up Tuesday, a day after Mejia made his fourth appearance and five days, and thus manager Terry Collins was forced to turn to Jeurys Familia to close out Wednesday's 8-5 win over the A's. Mejia believes Thursday's off day will provide enough rest for him to be ready to go for the weekend series against the Dodgers, but consider him day-to-day until he actually returns to the mound.(RotoWire, )

News: Mejia gave up a game-winning homer by Starlin Castro in Sunday's loss to the Cubs. Impact: The homer came on a first-pitch fastball to Castro, an aggressive free-swinger. It was the seventh homer allowed this season by Mejia.(RotoWire, )

News: Mejia was back in the closer's role Friday night against the Cubs and converted the save opportunity, pitching a clean inning with one strikeout. Impact: Mejia has now pitched on back-to-back nights after being held out for a couple of days due to a hernia. Thus it wouldn't be a shock if he were passed over for a potential save opportunity Saturday if one arises.(RotoWire, )

News: Mejia tossed a clean ninth inning during a non-save situation Thursday. Impact: The Mets presumably wanted to get Mejia some work, as he hadn't pitched since Sunday. He's dealing with a couple of injuries, including a hernia that will require surgery after the season, but it appears, at least for the moment, that he will fight through it.(RotoWire, )
