Jenrry Mejia pitched a scoreless ninth inning to pick up his thirteenth save of the year on Tuesday against the Mariners.
Mejia did walk one batter, but otherwise put up zeroes across the stat-line. The scoreless inning dropped his ERA to 3.80. While the ERA doesn't look particularly sparkling for a closer, Mejia has only given up one run over his last ten appearances. He also has 66 strikeouts in just over 66 innings and is 13-for-15 in save chances since assuming the closer's role. Jul 23 - 1:54 AM

Jenrry Mejia tallied his 10th save of the season Saturday in the Mets' 5-4 defeat of the Marlins.

Mejia threw a perfect ninth inning, striking out one. He has been steadier than expected since taking over as the Mets' closer and should remain a valuable fantasy chip in the second half of the 2014 campaign.
Jul 12 - 7:10 PM

Jenrry Mejia escaped danger in the ninth inning to pick up his ninth save of the season as the Mets earned a 4-1 victory over the Braves on Wednesday.

Mejia gave up back-to-back one-out singles, giving the Braves at least two at-bats with the tying run at the plate. Mejia, however, was able to get Chris Johnson to foul out and Tommy La Stella to strike out to end the game. The 24-year-old right-hander is now 9-for-11 in save chances with a 3.98 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, and a 64/31 K/BB ratio.

Jenrry Mejia is expected to get the night off Tuesday.

Mejia has thrown 40 pitches over the past two days, so this doesn't come as a big surprise. Jeurys Familia will be used if a save opportunity presents itself Tuesday.
Jul 8 - 4:01 PM

After entering with a man on in a 2-1 game in the eighth, Jenrry Mejia took a blown save Monday against the Braves.

Mejia gave up a game-tying double and a go-ahead single in the eighth, with the last run getting charged to him. However, the Mets let him off the hook when Curtis Granderson homered in the bottom of the eighth. Mejia then stayed in and pitched a scoreless ninth, so the night wasn't a total loss for him. He does have three blown saves in just 11 chances now, but he'd probably be doing better if the Mets weren't so stingy with giving him leads in the ninth.
Jul 7 - 11:49 PM

Jenrry Mejia earned his eighth save of the season in the Mets' 5-3 defeat of the Pirates on Saturday.

Jenrry Mejia was pulled from Wednesday's game against the Cardinals after surrendering a run.

Mejia served up a leadoff double to Matt Carpenter and then hit Jon Jay with a pitch. He got the next batter -- Matt Holliday -- to ground into a doubleplay, but Allen Craig then smacked an RBI single so Mets manager Terry Collins opted to turn to Dana Eveland, who retired Matt Adams and earned his first save of the season.
Jun 18 - 4:31 PM

Jenrry Mejia earned his seventh save of the year Sunday in the Mets' 3-1 win over the Padres.

It was his first time on the mound since he was forced from Thursday's loss to the Brewers with back stiffness. And he looked sharp, tossing two perfect innings to protect the Mets' two-run lead. Mejia is likely going to continue to have ups and downs, but the talented 24-year-old right-hander is a must-own in all standard fantasy leagues while he's locked in as the Mets' closer.
Jun 15 - 4:58 PM

Jenrry Mejia said Friday that his back remains tight but is feeling improved since Thursday.

He also added that he's feeling no pain. Mejia would like to test things out with some throwing Friday but is waiting for the Mets' team doctor to give him the go-ahead. He figures to be unavailable for at least a day or two. Jeurys Familia figures to get the save chance if one is there Friday.
Jun 13 - 4:26 PM

Jenrry Mejia left Thursday's game against the Brewers with back stiffness.

Mejia was set to start the 11th inning after getting the last two outs of the 10th, but he tweaked his back while warming up. The Mets figure to provide an update on the closer after the game so that we have a better idea how much time he might miss.

Jenrry Mejia left Thursday's game versus the Brewers with an apparent injury.

Mejia was set to start the 11th inning after getting the last two outs of the 10th, but he tweaked something while he was warming up. It's not clear at this point what ailment he's dealing with, but the Mets should provide an update on their closer shortly.
Jun 12 - 10:01 PM

Jenrry Mejia took a blown save and a loss by giving up two runs in the ninth Saturday against the Giants.

After an excellent first couple of weeks in the pen, Mejia has allowed six runs -- five earned -- in 2 1/3 innings over his last four appearances, walking three batters in that span. This was his first blown save, so maybe he'll keep the closer's role barring another blow up. The alternative would be Jeurys Familia, who pitched 2 1/3 scoreless innings to set Mejia up tonight and probably won't be available Sunday.
Jun 8 - 2:07 AM

Jenrry Mejia collected his sixth save of the season in the Mets' 4-3 defeat of the Phillies on Sunday.

Mejia served up a one-out solo home run to Marlon Byrd but was able to protect the Mets' two-run 11th-inning lead with an otherwise clean frame. He is 6-for-6 in save opportunities since taking over as New York's closer.
Jun 1 - 5:11 PM

Jenrry Mejia worked a perfect ninth inning to pick up his fifth save of the season as the Mets defeated the Phillies 4-1 on Thursday.

Mejia struck out all three hitters he faced. The right-hander is now 5-for-5 in save chances with 10 strikeouts and three walks in nine innings since taking over closing duties for the Mets.
