Pretty shocked by this news. It's not often someone gets a fourth chance to correct their mistakes, but Jennry was just given a new lease on his baseball life.

Now this doesn't mean he'll be suiting up this weekend at Citi Field, but his career gets back to work after the All Star Break.
Jenrry Mejia will be allowed to resume participation in non-public workouts at Mets’ facilities following the 2018 All-Star break and will be eligible for a rehabilitation assignment with a #Mets’ affiliate in mid-August.— Michael Baron (@michaelgbaron) July 6, 2018
I couldn't get enough of this guys antics. It was fun. Remember, baseball is entertainment. If this dude gets back on the hill in 2019, I want the old Jennry back. The moonwalking, back breaking, fish reeling, stomping maniac.
That is if he can actually perform without the juice. Time will tell.
This was absolutely my favorite Mejia Stomp. What kind of maniac pretends to real in a fish after a game ending strikeout? pic.twitter.com/ppDaeAX0Di— The 7 Line (@The7Line) July 6, 2018
If you're hitting the final home game on Thursday at Citi Field, swing by the Marina Lot to see some friends, maybe meet some new ones, and responsibly wash down your sorrows before heading inside.
