Jenrry Mejia has tested positive again for PEDs and is suspended for 162 games.
Mejia just came back from an 80-game suspension a couple of weeks ago. And now he tests positive again. Unbelievable.
This makes the acquisiton of Tyler Clippard that much more crucial. Mejia was not going to be eligible for the post-season anyway. But it was expected he would play a key role in the Mets playoff push.
This should end his Mets career.
The Mets issued a statement on Jenrry Mejia’s suspension:
“We were extremely disappointed when informed of Jenrry’s second suspension for violating MLB’s Joint Drug Prevention Program. We fully support MLB’s policy toward eliminating performance enhancing substances from the sport.”
