Jenrry Mejia made his first appearance in a game where they kept an accurate box score since April 29, 2011 with Buffalo. His line: 5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 1 K. He allowed a single run in the first and third inning before retiring the final eight batters in a row. He induced eight ground ball outs and gave up five air outs. It was certainly an encouraging return. He was transferred to St. Lucie earlier in the day, so the Mets have can be flexible with his next assignment, whether it's another start in the FSL before a return to Buffalo.
After three scoreless innings from Angel Cuan, Adrian Rosario fanned two and walked on in the 9th. That's 21 strikeouts against four walks in 16 innings for Rosario who I was told recently I'm told by a Mets official is throwing a "plus fastball, in the low to mid-90s," "a hard slider" and a "nice changeup that bottoms out of the zone." That sounds like a nice mix that should earn the 22-year old a trip to double-A fairly soon.
CF Cesar Puello was 2-for-4 with a triple, his second of the year. The 21-year old is hitting .289/.337/.412 in 25 games this year.
