Jenrry Mejia will get another opportunity to pitch in the major leagues.

Nearly 2 years after becoming the first player to receive a lifetime suspension under Major League Baseball’s drug program Tony Wolters Colorado Rockies Jersey , the New York Mets reliever was given conditional reinstatement Friday and could return to the big leagues in 2019.

Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred said Mejia will be able to participate in non-public workouts in the team’s facilities after the All-Star break and will be eligible for a minor league rehabilitation assignment in mid-August. If Mejia meets specified conditions, such as not testing positive again for a banned substance, he would be eligible to resume all baseball activities when spring training starts in February.

Mejia was suspended for life on Feb. 12, 2016, after his third positive test for a banned steroid. The drug agreement allowed him to apply a year later for reinstatement that would be effective a minimum two years after the ban started, with the decision at the commissioner’s discretion.

Manfred had a meeting with Mejia in 2017, after the application to return to baseball was submitted.

”Mr. Mejia expressed regret for poor choices he made in the past and assured me that, if reinstated, he would adhere to the terms of the (drug) program going forward,” Manfred said in a statement. ”In light of Mr. Mejia’s contrition, his commitment to comply with the program in the future Kentavius Street Color Rush Jersey , and the fact that he will have already spent almost four consecutive years suspended without pay, I have decided to grant Mr. Mejia a final chance to resume his professional career.”

A right-hander who turns 29 in October, Mejia was the Mets’ closer in 2014, then was suspended for 80 games on April 11, 2015, following a positive test for Stanozolol, a drug popular among bodybuilders. At the time, he maintained, ”I can honestly say I have no idea how a banned substance ended up in my system.”

Mejia returned July 12, appeared in seven games for New York, then was banned for 162 games on July 28 after a positive test for Stanozolol and Boldenone. The third suspension was for a positive test for Boldenone Josey Jewell Color Rush Jersey , an anabolic steroid generally used by veterinarians on horses.

”I’ve had a long, difficult time away from the game to contemplate the mistakes I’ve made both with regard to my positive drug tests and also the false allegations I made about Major League Baseball’s investigation into my testing history,” Mejia said in a statement issued through the players’ association. ”Baseball is my profession, my passion and my life, and for those mistakes I am truly sorry.”

Mejia is 9-14 with a 3.68 ERA in 18 starts and 95 relief appearances. In addition to random drug tests, he will be subject annually to six additional urine tests and three additional blood tests.

He has four years, 140 days of major league service and would be eligible for salary arbitration this winter and again after the 2019 season before becoming eligible for free agency.

Even though Mejia is not being paid, he has a contract. The Mets cut his salary the maximum allowed, 30 percent over two years, from $2.47 million in 2016 to $1,976 Dorian O'Daniel Color Rush Jersey ,000 in 2017 to $1,729,000 this year. For 2019, he can be cut by 20 percent to $1,383,200, staying within the reduction limit of 30 percent over two years.

”I am aware that he can get reinstated at some point,” Mets manager Mickey Callaway said. ”I think right now we’re just focused on who we have here and kind of moving forward.”




SAINT PAUL, Minn. — As the Twin Cities were digging out from a record-setting April snowstorm on Monday, the Minnesota Wild were hoping to keep digging out from the hole they created after losing the first two games of their playoff series with the Winnipeg Jets.

But on the day after the Wild finally showed some offense, getting their first win of the series by a 6-2 count on Sunday Jonathan Cooper Color Rush Jersey , their coach cautioned that his team’s status was still plenty urgent heading into Game 4 down two games to one.

“We’re still in a desperate situation. We were last night and we are tomorrow,” Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said after his team’s practice on Monday. “If we lose (Tuesday), we’re still down 3-1 going into Winnipeg. It’s not a question about feeling good about yourself. We survived.”

The Wild clearly enjoyed being at home for the first time in the series and are looking to build upon the success they had in Game 3 as they attempt to even the series.

“I don’t think we changed too many things. We really just want to keep things simple,” said Wild rookie forward Jordan Greenway, who scored his first NHL goal on Sunday. “We wanted to wear down their D early. I think we played a lot more physical, we kind of made the first push. That was key. Going forward I think keeping that physicality and wearing them down, I think more space should open up for us like it did (Sunday) and we should get more chances.”

For the Jets, the biggest question remained unanswered after their skate on Monday. Defenseman Tyler Myers left Game 3 in the second period after an awkward collision, first with Wild forward Marcus Foligno and next with the boards near the Winnipeg bench. Jets coach Paul Maurice offered no update on Myers’ status Monday but did reiterate that he didn’t like the hit and expected the league to take a look at Foligno’s actions.

For his part, Foligno noted that he and Myers are friends off the ice from their time as teammates in Buffalo and claimed he had no nefarious intent in the collision. If Myers is unable to play Tuesday, rookie blueliner Tucker Poolman will likely be the new name in the Winnipeg lineup. Beyond that potential transaction http://www.chargersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-uchenna-nwosu-jersey , Maurice did not see the need for additional changes with the Jets still in control of the series.

“You’re not doing any major adjustments after an NHL season or switching a lot of things up. But there are areas, that when your game is going, that you can make adjustments from,” Maurice said. “The foundation of our game is a certain amount of quickness. We can execute and operate offensively and defensively at a higher rate of speed. We didn’t have that in our game. There weren’t a lot of adjustments to be made off of it.”

The Jets will be seeking the first road playoff win in franchise history. The Atlanta Thrashers were 0-2 on the road in the playoffs, and the Jets have now gone 0-3 away from home in the postseason since the move to Winnipeg in 2011.
