Mets RHP Jenrry Mejia threw a baseball Sunday and is still scheduled to be the team's starting pitcher against the Reds on Friday at Citi Field, Terry Collins said Monday.

Mejia was hit with a line drive last Friday in Montreal. X-rays there were negative, he was diagnosed with inflammation, but deemed healthy by team doctors earlier this week.

Collins named Mejia his team's fifth starting pitcher this past weekend, after which Daisuke Matsuzaka was sent to Triple-A Las Vegas.
