    Jenrry Mejia to Rotation if R.A. Dickey is Traded

    If the Mets trade R.A. Dickey, they intend to fill the vacant spot in the rotation with Jenrry Mejia, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York.

    Rubin says there is “virtually no way” Zack Wheeler will make the team out of camp and also adds, “if Wheeler does not spend the first three weeks of the season in the minors, he would be eligible for free agency after the 2018 season, rather than the Mets also controlling him for 2019.”

    On Tuesday, Paul DePodesta said on SNY’s Mets Hot Stove Mejia will start in the Minor Leagues if he doesn’t make the team out of camp.

    Lots can happen between now and when the Mets break ST camp in April.

    There is no commitment, only an acknowledged possibility.. Adam Rubin did not quote an official that the Mets intend to insert Mejia in the rotation if Dickey is traded. Instead...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Although the likelihood is R.A. Dickey remains a Met, one team official already has thought about a contingency plan for the rotation.

    The most likely scenario involves Jenrry Mejia opening the season in the rotation. Mejia will work as a starting pitcher in spring training regardless
    In other words, one official (who?) is thinking about Plan B, and as things stand Mijia is the most likely candidate in the official's opinion. Metsblog is wrong.
    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson

    If Dickey is traded, why not bring back Pelf?

    I guess it's because Mejia will be $4M cheaper.

    Rather take a chance with Mejia than Pelf if it comes down to it.

    At some point we gotta see what we have in Mejia. This would be the ideal time to do it.

    we definitely gotta trade Dickey for something since we aren't close to winning a WS anyway.. we can at least get a good OF prospect.

    Looks like Mejia won't be called up at least till after 3 weeks into the season so we can control him for an extra yr. No sense in letting him start the season with the Mets and allow him to hit free agency a yr earlier when we aren't going to compete this yr anyway.

    I'd like to get him into the rotation by the end of April if we can though. It's time to see what we got.

    Give Wheeler a shot to win it out of ST.

    Wheeler starts the season in Las Vegas. Mejia almost surely will be there too, but he will get the opportunity to show his stuff in ST. If he makes a statement, he could get the nod as the 5th starter.

    If Dickey is traded, I think the Mets will sign one or two inexpensive reclamation projects. Pelfrey is still a possibility. Jair Jurrjens is too. Or they could sign John Lannen.

    Contemplating Meijia as a replacement in the rotation for Dickey is also premature. He has to earn it and nothing he has done so far has indicated he's even remotely capable of stepping into a major league rotation right now.

    That's not to say he can't. I'd certainly audition him for the role in ST. But i sure as hell wouldn't be talking about giving him the job.

    He has to get that chance because all prospects need to get a legitimate shot sooner or later, but knowing the Mets they would give it to Hefner.

    Giving it to Hefner for the time being isn't a bad idea if it's about buying time. But Hefner obviously doesn't have the potential to be a long term solution like Meija.

    Of course, it is still up to Meijia to prove that he is up to the task.
