The 23-year-old flew to New York this week for tests following his spring training physical. He has been advised by doctors not to eat seafood, which is rich in lodine, but he does not have to take medication.
Mejia 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 and was roughed up in his lone exhibition appearance, allowing five runs in one inning against the Miami Marlins on Feb. 26.
