One new wrinkle to consider... the fact that Wilmer Flores has taken the Mets to task over his salary demands for the 2017 season could create a new trade scenario where Flores could be dealt one-for-one for a relief pitcher.
Tony asked -
Mack, do you have an update on what's going on with Jenrry Mejia?
Mack - Funny you should ask...
Both The Daily News and Fangraphs published an update this week. Try to follow me here...
The Mets and Jenrry Mejia areed to a 1-year contract worth $1.96mil; however, Mejia will not see one red cent from this deal because of his lifetime ban for his 786th positive test for every drug known to man.
This represents a 20% cut from his previous year's contract of $2.47mil which he also never was paid a cent.
Mejia will be eligible for free agency in 2019, which will definitely be another year he isn't paid anything by the Mets.
The only thing up to debate here is what the Mets will do with him in 2018.
