Mets reliever Jenrry Mejia suspended 162 games |

Dumb, dumb, dumb.

Mets reliever Jenrry Mejia has been suspended 162 games for testing positive a second time for a performance-enhancing substance, Major League Baseball announced Tuesday. Mejia’s suspension is effective immediately.

Mejia, 25, had not allowed a run in 7 1/3 innings this season. He missed most of the year due to an 80-game suspension for his first positive test.

Nothing guaranteed for Jenrry Mejia after suspension

What a 180-degree Valdespin!

The Mets are ready to move on without Jenrry Mejia, and nothing is guaranteed for him when he comes back.

When the closer’s 80-game suspension for violating MLB’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program is over, he won’t be walking back into his role closing games in the ninth inning — and even his spot in the bullpen could be up in the air.

“That definitely is a consideration,” Sandy Alderson told the Daily News. “It will be factored in when he comes back.”

While the ninth inning is being pieced together right now, the Mets are looking for Jeurys Familia to step up into the role or for Bobby Parnell to take it back when he comes off the disabled list. Either way Alderson does not think Mejia — who will also be suspended for the postseason, if the Mets qualify — factors into that decision.

“I hope our bullpen is pitching so well there is not a spot for him,” Alderson said. “I hope he is not a factor.”...

the Mets are not considering releasing [Mejia], but are unsure where he factors into their future.
