Jenrry Mejia is a pitcher for the Mets. He joined the team in 2010.
Mejia spent three seasons in the Mets’ minor league system before his call up to the parent club in ’10. He made his major league debut in the team’s 7-6 loss to the Marlins in 10 innings on April 7 at Citi Field. Jenrry appeared in a total of 33 games for the Mets during the season. At Citi Field on September 10, he singled and scored a run in an 8-4 Mets defeat to the Phillies.
Coming back from an injury, Mejia was limited to five games with AAA-level Buffalo in 2011. He pitched at three minor league levels in addition to five games with the Mets in 2012. Jenrry hurled five innings of four-hit scoreless ball, scored a run and got his first major league win in the Mets’ 6-2 victory over the Pirates on September 24 at Citi Field.
In 2013, Mejia pitched in six minor league games before coming back to the Mets. In the opener of a day-night doubleheader at Washington on July 26, he struck out seven batters in seven scoreless innings and chalked up the win in an 11-0 Mets triumph over the Nationals.
