Jenrry Mejia left Mets camp and went to New York to be examined for a hyperactive thyroid, but the 23-year-old right-hander has been cleared to return to spring training.
It all started when doctors red-flagged something during Mejia’s annual physical exam, but according to manager Terry Collins he’ll have “no limitations.”
Officially the Mets haven’t actually said what the issue was and MLB.com continues to call it simply “a medical issue unrelated to his pitching arm.” However, several reporters had the thyroid-related details and Mejia himself told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York that he’s been advised to stay away from seafood to keep things in check.
