Jenrry Mejia injury: Mets RHP cleared to return

Daniel Shirey

Jenrry Mejia has been cleared by doctors to return to Mets' camp with "no limitations."

New York Mets right-hander Jenrry Mejia left camp earlier this week with an undisclosed injury, and it was later reported that he was sent to New York to be examined for a thyroid condition. Everything has checked out, as manager Terry Collins told reporters, including Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, that Mejia has been cleared by doctors to return to Mets' camp with "no limitations."

Mejia was scratched from a scheduled appearance earlier this week and sent for testing after a potential thyroid issue was discovered during his preseason physical. It marked the second setback of his young spring, as his arrival at camp was delayed due to visa issues.

Mejia has appeared in one game this spring, allowing five runs - four earned - on three hits and one walk with two strikeouts over one inning. Considering his initial delay and recent examination, Mejia is expected to start the season with the Mets' Triple-A affiliate.

Mejia appeared in five games, including three starts, for the Mets last season, allowing 10 runs in 16 innings. The 23-year-old spent a majority of the season in the minors, where he maintained an ERA of 3.59 over 30 appearances, including 14 starts, across three levels.
