Mejia is expected to open the 2018 season with Triple-A Columbus, Chris Assenheimer of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. ""He's a really well thought of young catcher," manager Terry Francona said of Mejia. "I don't think he's even been to Triple-A, so there's nothing wrong with him getting some seasoning there."

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

The national spotlight was shown on Mejia when his hitting streak reached historic proportions (50 games) and he was brought up in reports of the nixed Jonathan Lucroy trade. Overall, Mejia hit for an .896 OPS between Low-A Lake County and High-A Lynchburg as a 20-year-old, establishing himself as one the top hitting catchers in the minor leagues. He put bat to ball with great consistency, striking out just 63 times in 443 plate appearances while flashing notable power. There are some growing concerns about his ability to stick behind the plate long-term, and while his bat would probably play at first base, his long-term keeper league appeal is tied closely with his current positional eligibility. If he sticks at catcher, he could eventually be a top-five fantasy option at the position.

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.
