Mejia is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Angels, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. He's hit .286/.324/.514 with one home run over his last 10 games and has started three of the last seven. While Mejia is the superior offensive catcher to Mike Zunino, who is starting behind the dish Tuesday, they'll maintain a close playing time split due to Zunino's superior defense.
Mejia went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run in a win over the Angels on Monday. Mejia continues to deliver at the plate relatively consistently, with Monday marking the fourth time in his last five starts that he's hit safely. After a forgettable 2020 in San Diego, Mejia seems on track for production that much more closely resembles the encouraging .265/.316/.438 slash he generated over 244 plate appearances with the Padres in 2019.
