According to reports all over Twitter, the Mets seem to have caught a break.

Indeed, Mets appear to have dodged a bullet with Mejia. Cortisone shot for inflammation but not structural damage. – @marccarig

This is great news with the recent string of Tommy John surgery required by Mets pitching, and all throughout the league. Hopefully the shot kicks in and he can return to closing out ball games within a week or so. 


Mejia has officially been placed on the 15 day DL. He will not perform any baseball activities for 10 days and be reevaluated at that point to see where he’s at.
