According to Adam Rubin: Source: Mejia to start again in minors
“is expected to head to the minors to resume being used as a starting pitcher. That could be timed with R.A. Dickeyâ€™s activation before Wednesdayâ€™s start, a team source told ESPNNewYork.com.”
“The Mets will have Dickey face the Washington Nationals on Wednesday and use Hisanori Takahashi in place of Niese on Friday.”
How long it takes Mejia to be stretched out and how effective he will be remain to be seen.Â Obviously this is the right move.Â The Mets bullpen is not the problem and is scheduled to get stronger with Iggy on his way back.Â I also don’t expect Ollie to be in there for long, opening up a spot for a guy like Misch who is still pitching quite well.Â Misch would be my pick to take Taka’s role in the pen.
