Jenrry Mejia remains a member of the Mets organization -- although he is suspended at least through the 2017 season, and potentially beyond if he is not reinstated from his lifetime PED ban. That does not preclude the Mets from releasing him at a later date. But Mejia is costing the Mets nothing right now, and they have not relinquished control. Mejia has resumed pitching in the Dominican Winter League, which is not covered by the MLB ban.

Solid day for Oswalt, Cecchini in AFL

Mets prospect Gavin Cecchini went 3-for-5 with a home run for the Scottsdale Scorpions in Arizona Fall League action on Saturday. Fellow New York farmhand Corey Oswalt struck out four, walked one and allowed one hit in four innings. Box score

Jenrry Mejia has resurfaced in the Dominican Winter League. Mejia tossed a scoreless relief inning with one walk and one strikeout and earned the win in Licey's 4-3 opening-day win against Escogido on Friday. Mejia was permanently suspended from MLB in February for a third positive PED test, but the suspension does not extend to winter leagues, including in his native Dominican Republic. Mejia is allowed to apply to commissioner Rob Manfred for reinstatement to MLB next February -- one year after the ban was imposed. Even if reinstated, which is no guarantee, he would have to sit out the 2017 season since the requirement is to be sidelined for a minimum of two years after a lifetime ban. Mejia's New York-based attorney announced in July an intention to sue MLB, but there was never a subsequent announcement of a filing.

Tim Tebow is off the schneid. Tebow singled on a line drive to left field in his second at-bat on Tuesday with Scottsdale. That snapped an 0-for-13 drought to begin his Arizona Fall League stint. The single came against right-hander Duane Underwood Jr., a Chicago Cubs prospect who went 0-5 with a 4.91 ERA in 13 starts with Double-A Tennessee during the regular season.

Tim Tebow remains hitless through four games in the Arizona Fall League. After a weekend away with college-football-broadcasting responsibilities, Tebow rejoined Scottsdale and went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts on Monday against Mesa. He is now 0-for-12 with five strikeouts in the AFL, which boasts many of MLB's top upper-level prospects. Of the balls put in play, Tebow has sent three grounders to second base, three grounders to first base and hit a squibber in front of the plate.

Remembering Mets' LCS heroics

Few people could have predicted Miguel Montero's pinch-hit grand slam on Saturday, but was it the most unlikely in LCS history? Two Mets are responsible for other improbable blasts, including Lenny Dykstra in Game 3 of the 1986 NLCS. Schoenfield: Improbable LCS homers

Mets relief prospect David Roseboom talks about his success this past season at Double-A Binghamton, where the southpaw emerged as closer after the trade of Akeel Morris to the Braves and Beck Wheeler's promotion to Las Vegas. Roseboom, a 17th-round pick in 2014 out of South Carolina-Upstate, had a 1.87 ERA and 14 saves in 52 relief appearances with the B-Mets.


Adam Rubin ESPN Staff Writer 

Mets prospect Matt Oberste discusses playing in the Arizona Fall League, being teammates with Tim Tebow, and having success this season with Double-A Binghamton. Oberste, a seventh-round pick in 2013 out of the University of Oklahoma, hit .283 with nine homers and 54 RBIs in 413 at-bats with the B-Mets. He was MVP of the Eastern League All-Star Game. A natural first baseman, Obserte split time between first and third base with Binghamton because of the presence of former first-round pick Dominic Smith.
