Mets Injury Update: Jenrry Mejia pitched through hernia

By on 8/10/2014 06:15:00 PM

Mets closer Jenrry Mejia, who had been battling a calf strain, gave up two runs in the 9th inning to take the loss on Sunday to the Philadelphia Phillies—and after the game revealed that he has also been suffering from a "little" hernia for about three weeks, reports Mike Vorkunov of the Star-Ledger.

Mejia is 5-5 with 17 saves and seven starts (total 74 innings) with a 3.89 ERA and a 9.49 K/9 rate.

Mejia, 24, was signed by the Mets in 2007 out of the Dominican Republic and made his debut April 7, 2010 at age 20. He lost the 2011 season to Tommy John Surgery, and got a "cup of coffee" in September 2012. He started five games for the Mets in 2013 after being promoted in July, but was plagued with bone chips, which were surgically removed in August. After a few starts in 2014, the Mets sent the righty to the bullpen where he thrived. Mejia is pre-arb and under team control through 2018.
