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, )

News: Though he was bypassed for Monday's save chance, Mejia (hernia, calf) is expected to be available Tuesday, ESPN.com's Adam Rubin reports. Impact: Mejia seems to have put the calf issue behind him by pitching Sunday, but he has since disclosed that he is dealing with a hernia and will require surgery after the season. The right-hander believes he can pitch through the injury for the final month and a half, but it might be wise for fantasy owners to handcuff him with Jeurys Familia in the event a setback occurs. Familia was tapped to close out Monday's contest, surrendering a run but recording four outs en route to his third save of the season.(RotoWire, )

News: Mejia (hernia) will continue to pitch as long as his arm feels OK, MLB.com's Jed Weisberger reports. "The doctors have said he can pitch," manager Terry Collins said. "As long as his arm feels fine, he can pitch." Impact: Mejia was dealing with a right calf issue, but revealed after Sunday's game that he has also seen a doctor about a hernia. For now he will continue to take medication for the pain, and he intends to finish the season.(RotoWire, )
Aug 10, 2014
News: Mejia, who is already dealing a calf injury, announced after he blew a save and took the defeat Sunday that he has been pitching through a sports hernia, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports. Impact: Mejia wants to finish the season before having surgery. He is able to pitch through the injury, but with the Mets going nowhere, it would not be surprising to see him shut down sometime in September. If that happens, look for Jeurys Familia to close.(RotoWire, )
Aug 10, 2014
News: Mejia (calf) gave up runs for the third time in five games to blow the save and the game in the Mets' 7-6 loss to the Phillies on Sunday. Impact: Mejia did not blame his calf injury for the loss, but he has been walking the edge with runners on base, which finally came back to burn him and the Mets on Sunday. Manager Terry Collins said after the game that Mejia may be affected by his workload, as his pitches have lacked crispness and their usual movement. No word has been given about inserting Jeurys Familia into the closer role, but if Mejia continues to struggle, a switch could be forthcoming.(RotoWire, )

News: Mejia (calf) will not be available Saturday against the Phillies, Matt Ehalt of the Bergen Record reports. Impact: The right-hander needed just 10 pitches to retire the side and earn his 17th save of the season Friday, but he admitted after the game that he's still bothered by calf tightness, and it seems manager Terry Collins doesn't want to push his luck. Should a save opportunity present itself Saturday, Jeurys Familia or Vic Black will likely get the call.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Aug 8, 2014
News: Mejia gave up a run on two hits, but held on for his 17th save of the season Friday night. Impact: After Friday's game, Mejia told reporters that his calf is still tight, but that the injury does not matter. Nevertheless, it will be interesting to see if the Mets go back to him for a third consecutive day Saturday should another save situation arise.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Aug 8, 2014
News: Mejia (calf) will be available for Friday's game against the Phillies, ESPNNewYork.com reports. Impact: Mejia complained of calf tightness Thursday, but he was able to throw off flat ground Friday afternoon and was thus deemed available for the opener against Philadelphia. He was even seen shagging fly balls during batting practice, so apparently it was just a minor issue for the Mets' closer.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Aug 7, 2014
News: Mejia is dealing with a calf issue, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports. Impact: Mejia pitched in Thursday afternoon's game, entering in the 12th inning and stranding two runners to preserve a 2-2 tie. He emerged with a bit of calf soreness, but it's currently unclear whether it will put his availability in jeopardy over the coming days. The ailment apparently prevented him from pitching multiple innings in Thursday's loss. Mejia just can't seem to get to 100 percent, as he was hampered by a sore back earlier this week.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Aug 5, 2014
News: Mets manager Terry Collins said Tuesday that Mejia's sore back is fine, Mike Vorkunov of the Star-Ledger reports. Impact: Although he did not say so explicitly, Collins' words suggest Mejia will be available for Tuesday's series opener against the Nationals. Mejia admitted after Monday's outing, during which he allowed a run on two hits and a walk, that he was experiencing a bit of back tightness, but apparently it's not something that will cost the right-hander time.(RotoWire, )
