Twins' Adalberto Mejia: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia was optioned to Triple-A Rochester.

Mejia entered training camp with a good shot at a spot in the rotation, but his prospects quickly changed after the Twins traded for Jake Odorizzi and signed Lance Lynn. With Mejia sent to Triple-A, it looks like Phil Hughes will begin the season as the No. 5 starter. However, Hughes could move to the bullpen in a few weeks when Ervin Santana returns from a finger injury. Mejia will likely be the first starter recalled from Triple-A if there's an opening early in the season in the major league rotation.

Twins' Adalberto Mejia: Longer odds to win rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia threw two scoreless innings with a strikeout and walk in Monday's spring training outing to lower his ERA to 4.50. He faces longer odds to win a spot in the rotation with the Twins signing Lance Lynn.

Mejia is battling Phil Hughes for the fifth starter role, but that spot in the rotation may only be open for a few weeks until Ervin Santana returns from a finger injury. It looks more likely that Mejia will begin the season at Triple-A.

Twins' Adalberto Mejia: Two scoreless innings in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia threw two scoreless innings with a walk and no strikeouts in his spring debut Saturday. He lost 13 pounds over the offseason as he worked out lifting tractor tires, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Mejia is competing for one of the final two spots in the rotation this spring. He's off to a good start and reports of improved conditioning can only help him in the competition. With Ervin Santana (finger) expected to be sidelined for the start of the season, the Twins could begin the season with a four-man rotation, which could leave Mejia out of the rotation mix initially if he struggles this spring.

Twins' Adalberto Mejia: Competing for final rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia is competing for one of the Twins' final rotation spots in spring training, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Mejia won a job out of spring training last season, and he's looking to do so again this year. With Ervin Santana (finger) expected to be sidelined for the start of the season, the Twins only have three Opening Day locks for their starting rotation in Jose Berrios, Jake Odorizzi and Kyle Gibson. However given the way the Twins' off-days play out over the first month of the season, Molitor has flirted with the idea of opening the season in a four-man rotation, which would leave just one rotation spot for Mejia, Anibal Sanchez and Phil Hughes to compete for. Opening the year with a five-man rotation would obviously increase Mejia's chances of breaking camp with the team, but he'll need to put together a strong spring camp either way if he wants to lock down a starting gig. In 21 starts (98 innings) during his rookie season in 2017, Mejia posted a 4.50 ERA and 1.57 WHIP.

Twins' Adalberto Mejia: Lasts two innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia allowed four runs (two earned) on four hits and struck out two batters Thursday in his Dominican Winter League debut, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Mejia didn't pitch well during his first start of the Dominican Winter League, although he's likely shaking some of the rust off. The 24-year-old posted a 4.50 ERA in 2017 for the Twins over 98 innings pitched and earned a spot in Minnesota's starting rotation. The good news is that Mejia is still young and has plenty of time to improve. He'll look to have a better outing in his second start of winter league play.
