MLB Team Report - New York Mets - INSIDE PITCH PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- The New York Mets may be reloaded with talent after shedding several expiring contracts over the winter, but are they better? That is the question the team is asking itself heading into the season. The free agent acquisition of outfielder Curtis Granderson, right-hander Bartolo Colon and others gives the Mets plenty of optimism, but injuries to right-hander Matt Harvey and other pitchers leave plenty of unanswered questions.

RHP Jenrry Mejia is officially a starter. After coming through the Mets' system as a starting pitcher, converting to relief, suffering through years' worth of injuries and organizational indecision and finally returning to the majors last year as a starter, Mejia finally convinced the Mets to keep him in the rotation. That could mean spending a chunk of this year at Triple-A Las Vegas, but no matter what, the Mets will not use Mejia early in the year out of the bullpen.
