Analysis: Mejia (1-2), who has 27 strikeouts and four walks in five starts over 27 1-3 innings this year, has been pitching with a bone spur in his elbow, and it had previously been determined that he would undergo offseason surgery. He had Tommy John surgery in 2011. The Mets recalled reliever Greg Burke from Triple-A Las Vegas to take Mejia's place on the roster. Burke has made 10 relief appearances for New York this season and has 25 strikeouts in 29 innings.

He has been advised by doctors not to eat seafood, which is rich in lodine, but he does not have to take medication.
Analysis: ``Everything is doing great. Everything is going well,'' said Mejia, expected to start the regular season at Triple-A Las Vegas. ``They said everything is looking great and I can do every activity, but don't eat fish." It's been a spring training of delays and setbacks for Mejia, who went 1-2 with a 5.63 ERA in five appearances for the Mets last season. He reported to camp more than a week later than expected due to visa issues in the Dominican Republic.
