Mets | Jenrry Mejia to be used back-to-back soon

New York Mets RP Jenrry Mejia is expected to be used in back-to-back days soon, since the team wants to be able to use him often if they plan to name him the closer eventually. Manager Terry Collins said he might use Mejia in back-to-back games this weekend. "He hasn't been back-to-back in four years, so we've got to be careful," Collins said. "... For sure, if it's not this weekend, next week he's got to go back-to-back sometime." Mejia pitched Thursday, May 15, so RPs Daisuke Matsuzaka or Jose Valverde will pitch in a save situation if one arises Friday, May 16.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets are clearly grooming Mejia to be their long-term closer of the future. He should be owned everywhere at this point.
