Mets News and Notes: Mejia, Murphy, Nieuwenhuis, Puello, Wright, Francisco, Minor League Deals, Prospects


Mets News and Notes:

MLB confirmed the age and identity of Jenrry Mejia and the right-hander has been granted a visa to report to camp, the Mets announced. Mejia should arrive today or Friday.

Daniel Murphy returned to camp Wednesday, after a medical exam in New York. Murphy received a cortisone injection in his right side for a strained intercostal muscle. He was limited to icing his side and riding a stationary bicycle on his first day back.

Collins said Kirk Nieuwenhuis will have the first chance to earn the leadoff role. Nieuwenhuis will bat No. 1 Saturday when the Mets open Grapefruit League play against Strasburg and the Nats.

Outfield prospect Cesar Puello referred questions to the Players’ Association a day after being identified in an “Outside the Lines” report as being linked to the South Florida clinic at the heart of an alleged performance-enhancing drug scandal.

David Wright again stood by his agents, who also represent Puello. The firm has had other clients linked to performance-enhancing drugs, including Melky Cabrera, who allegedly had ties to the same South Florida clinic as Puello.
