2016

Mejia’s tools remain in front of his production, but it is hard to hold that against him after he held his own over a full season as a 19-year-old at Low-A. In 109 games in the Midwest League the switch-hitting Dominican catcher belted nine home runs with four steals and a .243/.324/.345 slash line that was hampered slightly by a .281 BABIP. Considering how rare it is for a catcher to hit for a high average in the big leagues, the fact that Mejia probably projects to be a .240-.250 hitter is not a major issue. He could offer above average power thanks to quick-twitch reflexes, and he certainly has the arm to stick behind the plate. However, Mejia remains on a very slow track to the big leagues, and it could take him a couple seasons in the majors before he starts to tap into his potential at the plate, so the lead time is extreme.
