Perhaps no batter has been hotter of late than Clevelandís Francisco Mejia. The switch-hitting backstopper has been a machine for the Indiansí organization and has proven that his mammoth hitting streak from a season ago was no fluke. Over his last 10 games at Double-A, Mejia is hitting a robust .463 with 12 RBI. Heís crushed five home runs in his last five games, including back-to-back multi-homer outputs just last week. If his power surge continues, Mejia will emerge as one of the truly elite prospects in baseball. Heís already arguably the top catching phenom; he has hit at least .333 at every level since the start of the 2016 campaign. Mejia leads the Eastern League in batting at 21 years old, and it isnít even close.
