Bats: switch, throws: right
2012 GCL (and very minimal time in the FSL) numbers:
.313/.365/.402 (.767), 13 doubles, 0 triples, 1 homer, 16 walks, 15 strikeouts, 11 steals and 7 times caught stealing.
2013 FSL numbers:
95 plate appearances, .378/.447/.427, 4/0/0, 11/8, 9/3M
Mejia is an interesting story. He had an unspectacular first two seasons in the DSL and GCL, but in 2012 found some success at age 20 in the GCL. After that season ended, he just happened to still be in town when Fort Myers needed him.
Now this year, instead of starting him in Cedar Rapids, he spent time in EST and then went back to play for Fort Myers when they needed him. And he has put up fantastic numbers so far while playing 9 games at 2B, 7 in LF, 4 at SS, 1 at 3B, and 1 in RF (committing just one error at SS). The .874 OPS is impressive for someone who is essentially just moving from the GCL. He is 21, so there is no need to get totally carried away, but he is impressing and is serving as an offensively strong super utility guy at the moment.

Had he not been called to Ft. Myers, I wonder if he would have now gotten the call in Cedar Rapids with Goodrun likely out awhile with concussion issues. Either way, I like that his success in Ft. Myers contradicts the idea that youngsters need to spend a ton of time in the Midwest league to develop properly.

Mejia has only one error this year in the middle infield.

With the need for middle infielders, especially shortsotp. for sure. How is his defense?
Mejia has been hitting well and still maintains a strong OPS of .772 for the year. He has been a pleasant surprise and will now be on all prospect lists that stretch beyond 25 players, I would think. He is someone to watch in the future.

Sometimes it may be worth seeing what players are able to do when thrown into the fire. Mejia is demonstrating that it can work out for the best.
264 PA, .338/.390/.385, 9 doubles, 1 triple, 0 homers, 22 walks, 20 strikeouts, 14 stolen bases and 9 times caught stealing. Just 3 errors in 139 chances at shortstop.
