  • Rays' Francisco Mejia: Headed back to Tampa Bay

    Mejia signed a minor-league contract with the Rays on Thursday that includes an invitation to spring training, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Mejia was abruptly released by the Angels over the weekend but has quickly found new work in a familiar spot. Topkin notes that Alex Jackson is still expected to be Rene Pinto's backup, but Mejia will provide depth at catcher and is already familiar with much of the pitching staff.

  • Francisco Mejia: Let go by Angels

    The Angels released Mejia on Sunday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports. Mejia joined the Angels on a minor-league contract in December after slashing .227/.258/.400 with five home runs and 19 RBI over 160 plate appearances with the Rays last season. He was set to compete with Matt Thaiss for the backup catcher spot, but now Mejia will be on the lookout for a new team for the 2024 season.

  • Angels' Francisco Mejia: Signs MiLB deal with Angels

    Mejia signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Friday, Kiley McDaniel of ESPN.com reports. Mejia slashed .227/.258/.400 across 160 plate appearances with the Rays last season. His deal includes an invite to major-league camp, where he will presumably compete with Matt Thaiss for the backup catcher spot behind Logan O'Hoppe.

  • Rays' Francisco Mejia: Accepts outright assignment

    Mejia cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Durham on Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Meija has accepted the outright assignment, per Topkin, which isn't a surprise since declining it would mean forfeiting what remains of his $2.16 million salary for this season. The catcher is under team control for 2024 but would seem to be a likely non-tender candidate.

  • Rays' Francisco Mejia: Removed from 40-man roster

    The Rays activated Mejia (knee) from the 10-day injured list and designated him for assignment Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Mejia completed his rehab assignment after recovering from a left knee sprain and seemingly was poised to rejoin the Rays' 26-man active roster. However, the team has decided they prefer what Rene Pinto provides as the No. 2 catcher behind Christian Bethancourt. Mejia could clear waivers based on his $2.16 million salary this season, but the former top prospect is under team control for another season, so it's possible he garners interest from other organizations.

  • Rays' Francisco Mejia: Begins rehab assignment

    Mejia (knee) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Durham on Sunday. Mejia went hitless in four plate appearances for Durham on Sunday in his first game action since he went down in late July with a left MCL sprain. He could be ready for activation within the next week or so to serve as Tampa Bay's second catcher behind Christian Bethancourt.

  • Rays' Francisco Mejia: Out up to six weeks

    Mejia (knee) will likely be out 3-6 weeks with the left MCL sprain that sent him to the injured list Friday, Kristie Ackert of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Mejia told reporters Friday afternoon that he was optimistic about only needing a minimal 10-day IL stint, but instead the injury is significant enough that it will require a multi-week shutdown period and then probably a multi-week buildup before his return. Rene Pinto has been summoned to the Rays to share time behind the plate with Christian Bethancourt.

  • Rays' Francisco Mejia: Not expected to be out long

    Mejia (knee) is optimistic that he won't need a long stint on the injured list, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports. Mejia was placed on the injured list Friday with a left MCL sprain, but the catcher said he merely has some inflammation and should be ready after a few weeks of rest and rehab. Rene Pinto is up as Mejia's roster replacement.

  • Rays' Francisco Mejia: Placed on 10-day IL

    Mejia (knee) was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a left MCL sprain. Mejia left Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Orioles early with a left knee injury, which has now been diagnosed as an MCL sprain following an MRI. The 27-year-old will now be unavailable for at least 10 days while nursing the injury. Rene Pinto was called up from Triple-A Durham on Friday and he will serve as Christian Bethancourt's backup at catcher for the time being.

  • Rays' Francisco Mejia: Set for MRI

    Mejia will undergo an MRI on his left knee following Thursday's game against the Orioles, Kristie Ackert of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Mejia exited in the seventh inning of Thursday's game. Manager Kevin Cash said that for now the team is considering Mejia's injury a sprain, but there is some concern the issue is more severe. Rene Pinto is currently on a rehab assignment while recovering from an undisclosed injury, though he'd almost certainly be recalled when available to back up Christian Bethancourt if Mejia is forced to the injured list.

  • Rays' Francisco Mejia: Exits with injury

    Mejia exited Thursday's game against the Orioles with left knee discomfort, Tricia Whitaker of Bally Sports Sun reports. Mejia exited to start the seventh inning, though it's unclear how the injury occurred. Christian Bethancourt took over behind the plate and would see an uptick in playing time if Mejia is sidelined for any lengthy period of time.

  • Rays' Francisco Mejia: Swats homer in loss

    Mejia went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Thursday in a loss to the Royals. Mejia's seventh-inning solo blast tied the game 3-3, though Kansas City ultimately pulled out the win. The backstop has hit safely in all but one of his nine games in June, batting .355 (11-for-31) with two homers and six RBI over that span. However, he continues to split time behind the plate with the struggling Christian Bethancourt, who is slashing .171/.186/.171 this month but has played in two more contests than Mejia thus far.

  • Rays' Francisco Mejia: Swats second homer

    Mejia went 2-for-4 with a double and a three-run home run in Saturday's loss to Texas. Mejia got the start behind the plate and accounted for most of the Rays' run output with his three-run blast off Nathan Eovaldi in the fourth inning. The backstop has hit safely in each of his past five games and is batting .444 (8-for-18) over that span, but he continues to split time at catcher with Christian Bethancourt. The latter has outhomered Mejia 7-2 on the campaign and has superior numbers overall, so Mejia's big performance Saturday isn't likely to result in a changing of the guard.

  • Rays' Francisco Mejia: Pops first homer

    Mejia went 1-for-4 with a solo homer and an additional run scored in Saturday's 12-3 victory over the White Sox. Mejia missed out on the fun in the Rays' 10-run seventh inning, but he still hit a solo shot in the eighth inning. It was Mejia's first hit since April 18, ending an 0-for-12 stretch. The catcher is slashing .200/.260/.311 while sharing duties behind the plate with Christian Bethancourt.

  • Rays' Francisco Mejia: Four hits in win

    Mejia went 4-for-5 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's victory over the Reds. Mejia was locked in despite not playing in the Rays' last two games. The 27-year-old catcher has been solid in limited playing time, slashing .276/.353/.345 with four RBI and eight runs scored in 29 at-bats. Still, Mejia won't likely offer much value for fantasy purposes while splitting duties behind the plate with Christian Bethancourt.

  • Rays' Francisco Mejia: Comes to terms with Tampa

    Mejia signed a one-year, $2.155 million contract with the Rays on Friday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports. Mejia took a step back at the plate in 2022 with just a .645 OPS, and at this point it's difficult to see him turning into an everyday catcher. He will share time behind the dish with Christian Bethancourt in 2023.

  • Rays' Francisco Mejia: Back from paternity list

    Mejia (personal) was activated from the paternity list Friday and is on the Rays' roster for the AL Wild Card Series against the Guardians, Steve Carney of StPeteNine.comreports. The 26-year-old was placed on the paternity list Tuesday and will rejoin the team after spending a few days with his family. Mejia is on the bench for Game 1 in Cleveland on Friday with Christian Bethancourt starting behind the plate and batting seventh.

  • Rays' Francisco Mejia: Makes start at DH

    Mejia will serve as the Rays' designated hitter and No. 8 batter in Monday's game against the Red Sox, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Mejia will pick up his fourth start in five games, this time in a non-defensive role after he worked behind the plate Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Though he's seen an uptick in work of late, Mejia owns a pedestrian .596 OPS since the start of September and still looks to be the Rays' No. 2 option at catcher behind Christian Bethancourt.

  • Rays' Francisco Mejia: Not starting Wednesday

    Mejia isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the Guardians. Mejia has lost out on playing time recently and will be out of the lineup for the fourth time in the last five games. Christian Bethancourt is starting behind the plate and batting seventh.

  • Rays' Francisco Mejia: On bench Tuesday

    Mejia is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Guardians. Mejia has started five of the last 12 games. Christian Bethancourt, who has started six of the last 12 games, will start behind the dish and bat seventh.
