Mejia was confirmed as the starter for Saturday's matchup with the Royals, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

As expected, Mejia will be recalled prior to Saturday's contest, likely to face off with Ian Kennedy (hamstring). No official move has been made to bring the pitching prospect up to the big leagues, but that should happen sometime during the day Saturday.
