"It impressed the Mets when Mejia opted to tune out Francisco," Martino added.
Francisco reportedly recently received two cortisone shots in his elbow and could be cleared to resume throwing this week. He has not pitched in the Major Leagues this season.
That's horrible, but good for Mejia for recognizing this negative influence, looking the other way and going about his business professionally to get himself on track.
Perhaps Francisco should follow in the Mejia's footsteps and actually work for his salary, rather than sit around an empty minor league complex watching his career go down the drain and hurting his big league teammates in the process...
