Indians' Francisco Mejia: Returns from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia (groin) was activated from the minor-league DL at Double-A Akron on Friday.

The Tribe's top prospect wasted no time making his presence felt upon returning to the RubberDucks lineup. Over the weekend, the 21-year-old went 3-for-6 with a double, two homers and three RBI. Mejia is slashing .307/.344/.534 through his first 23 games in the Eastern League.

Indians' Francisco Mejia: Lands on 7-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia was placed on the 7-day disabled list at Double-A Akron on Thursday due to groin soreness.

One of the top catching prospects in all of baseball, Mejia's bat has been up to par in his first taste of the Double-A level, and with some further refinement behind the plate, it's not entirely out of the question for him to surface at the big-league level in the second half of 2017. The groin issue represents a setback in his development, but so long as it doesn't prove to be a multi-month concern, it shouldn't dim his long-term outlook too much.

Indians' Francisco Mejia: Making major defensive strides
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia has dedicated himself to improving defensively at Double-A Akron, SB Nation's Brian Hemminger reports.

Mejia is hitting .356/.404/.511 through 12 games with the Rubber Ducks this season, but his ability with the bat has never been in question. The catcher understands that, and he's taking the necessary steps to ascend through the ranks. So far this year, Mejia has gunned down five of six attempted base stealers while also picking off four runners at first base. Akron manager Mark Budzinski said the organization's No. 1 prospect continues to develop his pitch framing, game calling and even his attitude. Although the 21-year-old still has some climbing to do, Mejia appears to be making positive strides that could lead to his MLB debut coming sooner rather than later.

Indians' Francisco Mejia: Drills two doubles in first Double-A game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles, an RBI and scored a run in Thursday's Opening Day contest for Double-A Akron.

The Tribe's top prospect put on a show in his first-ever Double-A contest. One could argue that the 21-year-old is capable of being semi-productive at the major-league level right now, but it would take an injury for Mejia to have a chance at sniffing the big leagues this season. However, the catcher's development is worthy of attention from deep-league fantasy owners.

Indians' Francisco Mejia: Sent back to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia was optioned to Double-A Akron on Wednesday.

The Indians' top prospect put on a show in major league camp, recently bashing a grand slam against Kansas City on Saturday, but it comes as little surprise that he'll head back to the minor leagues. Even with the return to the minors, Mejia's upside is undeniable given his performance between Low- and High-A last season. The 21-year-old backstopper accumulated 139 hits in 407 at-bats between the two levels and even assembled a whopping 50-game hit streak at one point, and although he'll likely spend most -- if not all -- of the 2017 campaign in Akron, Mejia is bound to appear in Cleveland relatively soon as long as he continues to rake in the minors.
