Mets, Mejia agree to no-money deal

NY Daily Newsmercredi 11 janvier 2017
Suspended relief pitcher Jenrry Mejia and the Mets went through the formality of agreeing to a one-year contract worth $1,976,000, money he will never receive.
Mejia was given a lifetime ban from baseball last Feb. 12 after his third positive test under the major league drug program. He remains on the Mets roster on the restricted list, and because he has four years of major league service he was eligible for salary arbitration. However, players serving drug suspensions do not get paid.
