2019 Fantasy Outlook
Mesa, who goes by Victor Victor in an effort to distinguish himself from his father, Victor Mesa Sr. -- a baseball legend in Cuba -- signed in October with the Marlins for $5.25 million, the largest bonus in the 2018 international signing class. He immediately became Miami's best prospect by a wide margin. While his reported physical tools (50-grade raw power, 70-grade speed) at the time of his signing are comparable to recent high-profile outfield signees out of Cuba (Luis Robert, Lazaro Armenteros, Julio Pablo Martinez), Victor Victor's hit tool is seen as a strength, not a cause for concern, as was the case with that aforementioned trio. He should be a plus defender in center field, and has drawn comparisons to Victor Robles, given his defensive tools, potential to hit for a high average, steal 25-plus bases and chip in double-digit home runs. The 22-year-old could be sent directly to High-A for his debut season, and should reach the majors in 2020 or 2021. Read Past Outlooks

Quiet start to pro career

April 29, 2019
Mesa is slashing .225/.250/.238 through 19 games with High-A Jupiter with four RBI and five stolen bases.
ANALYSIS
The Marlins gave the 22-year-old Cuban a fairly challenging assignment to begin his pro career in North America, and while Mesa isn't yet hitting the ball with any authority -- only one of his 18 hits, a double, has gone for extra bases -- he hasn't appeared completely overmatched, posting a reasonable 3:10 BB:K. He missed most of camp in March with a hamstring injury, so consider this first month his spring training. He remains Miami's top fantasy prospect and should heat up over the summer.
