Mejia sidelined with MCL tear

The New York Mets today announced that Bisons’ RHP JENRRY MEJIA was examined today by Mets Medical Director Dr. David Altchek and was found to have a complete MCL tear of the right elbow. Mejia underwent an MRI at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan.

Surgical treatment has been recommended, but Mejia is expected to seek a second opinion.

In his last start for the Bisons on April 29 in Rochester, Mejia left after 4.0 innings with discomfort and was flown to New York to be examined. In five starts for the Bisons, Mejia was 1-2 with a 2.86ERA and 21 strikeouts in 28.1 innings.

 Mejia went 0-4 with a 4.62 ERA in 33 games, three starts for New York in 2010.
