Mejia makes AA start

Posted on June 24, 2010 by


Three days after being sent back to the minor leagues, Jenrry Mejia made his first start for the Binghamton Mets (AA).

Mejia pitched 2 1/3 innings, allowing one run, two hits, 3 K, 2 BB, facing nine batters. He threw 42 pitches (24 strikes) with his fast reportedly hitting between 95-97 miles per hour.

B-Mets manager Tim Teufel was asked about Mejia after the game:

“It’s so hard to tell when he’s only out there for such a short amount of time. I can’t wait until he extends his outings to a place where he’s throwing at least 80 pitches.”

Mejia is scheduled to start again Sunday, on three days rest.

The B-Mets lost the game to New Britian 10-2. Read the gane report in the Binghamton Press & Sun Bulletion here.
