Manager Jerry still has his pull with the Mets. Instead of sending Mr Mejia down to Buffalo to make room for DL returnee Ryota Igarashi, the Mets optioned Manny Acosta.
Of course most would have preferred to send down Oliver Perez but he is would have to agree to it.
Mejia needs to go down soon so he can maybe ramp up to become a starter later this year but Manager Jerry loves the kid and his 97mph fastball and his poise.
Bobby Ojeda made a outstanding reference last night saying that sooner or later teams will be able to catch up to Mejia since he cant throw his other pitches for strikes and he will be hammered like Parnell was later in the year like Parnell was the second time teams saw him last year.
