2017

2016

Still probably three years away from contributing at the big league level, Mendez offers a lot to dream on. At 6-foot-4, 178 pounds, the Venezuelan southpaw has an extremely projectable body with a low-to-mid 90s fastball. He continues to be brought along slowly, but he was absolutely dominant in 66.1 innings at Low-A Hickory last season. After a brief, 31-inning taste of the South Atlantic League in 2014, Mendez returned with authority, posting a 27.5 percent K-rate and a 5.6 percent walk rate with a 2.44 ERA and 1.09 WHIP. His first 10 appearances were 1.2-to-3.0 inning looks out of the bullpen, so his overall numbers are slightly inflated. That said, he still posted a 2.94 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 32 strikeouts in 33.2 innings as a starter, completing five innings in four of those eight starts. There isnít much buzz associated with Mendez, but he has the tools to finish 2016 as a top-100 prospect in dynasty leagues.
