Mets News and Notes: Mejia Hernia, Abreu Officially Released

Mets News and Notes:

After suffering a blown save in Sunday's 7-6 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies, the 24-year-old Jenrry Mejia revealed he has been dealing with a hernia. He hopes to delay surgery until after the season, but whether he can pitch through the injury until then remains unclear.

Mejia said he was examined Saturday by a Phillies doctor for the hernia. He has known about the issue for three weeks. It did not become public until he acknowledged the injury following Sunday's blown save.

He is taking medication to try to manage any pain.

"The doctor said if that bothers me too much, let him know and they're going to fix it," Mejia said. "I want to keep pitching and have the full season and then have the operation."

Five days after designating him for assignment, the Mets formally released Bobby Abreu on Sunday, according to the team's official transactions page.

Abreu, 40, said he intends to play winter ball in Venezuela and hopes for his major league career to continue.
