Mets News: Mets GM Alderson says no relief role for Jenrry Mejia
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN NY, Sandy Alderson has stated that Jenrry Mejia will not be used in the bullpen at this point, even if he loses the 5th spot in the rotation to Daisuke Matsuzaka...
Alderson said he will make the decision known later today who will win the spot. The reason why?
The Mets have to tell Matsuzaka by noon Tuesday whether he has made the Opening Day roster. Otherwise, they must pay him $100,000 for the right to send him to the minors, or cut him loose.
I said it all along, Jenrry Mejia will be insurance to Jon Niese in case any sudden setback to his April 6th start..
