RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Mejia improved significantly in his second season at Double-A Richmond with a 3.94 ERA and 58:16 K:BB in 65 innings. He then saw his strikeouts climb to 9.6 K/9 at Triple-A Sacramento, although he had a 4.20 ERA. His improvement resulted in a trade to Minnesota, where he has an easier path to the majors amid Minnesota's struggles in the starting rotation. Mejia has a low-90s fastball, a solid slider, and changeup, giving him an arsenal that enables him to profile as a back-of-the-rotation starter. He'll contend for a rotation spot this spring and should get a shot later this summer even if he begins the year back in Triple-A Rochester.

2016

After serving a 50-game suspension for taking a banned stimulant, Mejia returned to Double-A Richmond and posted a 2.45 ERA with 38 strikeouts in 51.1 innings. The lack of strikeouts at the minor league level is a bit concerning for a lefty who can touch 95 mph with his fastball. With the Giants lacking left-handed starters in their farm system, Mejia could find himself in the majors as soon as this year. At 22 years old, he is still considered one of the Giants' top pitching prospects, but those in dynasty leagues should be weary of his lack of strikeouts before investing too much in him.

2015

Mejia’s prospect stock is trending downward. He would have been considered one of the few Giants prospects with a shot at contributing this season, but in November it was announced that he had been suspended 50 games for testing positive for a stimulant, essentially ruling out a 2015 big-league debut. The 6-foot-3 southpaw got off to a really shaky start in 2014 at Double-A Richmond, but in his final 11 starts he posted a 2.95 ERA, re-establishing himself as a potential back-end starter in the majors. However, his strikeouts were way down in 2014, posting a 17.9% strikeout rate, a far cry from the 25.1% mark he put up in 2013 at High-A San Jose. Mejia could still survive in a big-league rotation with his plus, low-90s fastball and solid-average slider and changeup, but the dream of the big lefty being a No. 3 starter seems highly unlikely.
