The left-hander was charged with three runs allowed on seven hits.
Analysis: Mejia was showing diminished velocity and is one of the Twins' more promising young pitchers, so there's a decent chance he could be out for a while. The 24-year-old has had an up-and-down rookie season, compiling a 4-5 record with a 4.47 ERA in 18 starts.

Analysis: It was the second straight scoreless start for the rookie left-hander. ''I feel calmer every time I'm out there,'' he said through a translator. However, you might not want to scoop him up just yet because Mejia doesn't strike out many batters and hasn't lasted six innings in five straight starts, though he topped 100 pitches in the last two. "It's kind of becoming a little bit of his MO to burn through pitches," manager Paul Molitor said.
