2017

2016

Mella came over to the Reds from the Giants in the Mike Leake deal. By most accounts he was the Giants' top prospect remaining in the system and fit somewhere among the top 100 prospects in baseball. He essentially struck out a batter per inning at High-A ball, though his walk rate spiked after arriving in the Reds' farm system. Like many of the Reds' pitching prospects, Mella's offspeed pitches need refining, but he has a mid-90's fastball with a lot of late movement. We'll see if he can successfully scale the Double-A wall in 2016.

2015

With a mid-90s fastball that will miss bats and generate weak contact in the zone against the best hitters in the world thanks to serious late life, Mella profiles as the best starting pitching prospect in the Giantsí system. His changeup and curveball cannot match the current utility of his fastball, but with an uptick in command, both secondary offerings could be weapons, giving him the realistic future ceiling of a No. 3 pitcher on a contender. After opening the season laying waste to hitters in the Northwest League, Mella was promoted to Low-A Augusta as a 20-year-old, where he posted a 3.93 ERA (2.79 FIP) with a 63:13 K:BB ratio in 66.1 innings. The 6-foot-2 righty out of the Dominican Republic will face a significant challenge as he moves to High-A San Jose this year, but with continued success, a major league ETA of late 2016 should start to come into focus.
