Indians' Francisco Mejia: Receiving first big-league start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia will serve as the Indians' designated hitter and bat eighth Monday against the White Sox.

Both of the Tribe's top two catchers, Yan Gomes and Roberto Perez, have struggled at the dish for the balance of the season, but Perez in particular has heated up of late to become a key part of the Indians' 11-game winning streak. As a result, it's not expected that Mejia, one of the top catching prospects in all of baseball, will be in store for much duty behind the plate in September, but with Edwin Encarnacion receiving the day off to rest, manager Terry Francona will hand the 21-year-old his first career start in the majors. Mejia had previously appeared as a pinch hitter in two contests, going 0-for-2 with a run scored.

Indians' Francisco Mejia: Joins major-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Indians promoted Mejia from Double-A Akron on Friday.

The backstop, who was one of last summer's hottest minor-league players in the midst of his 50-game hit streak, could log at least one start per week, which could help some AL-only fantasy players. Mejia finishes his Akron campaign with a stellar .297/.346/.490 line, with 14 home runs and seven stolen bases over 383 plate appearances.

Indians' Francisco Mejia: Expected to join Indians on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia is expected to earn a promotion to the big-league club prior to Friday's doubleheader against the Tigers, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports.

Mejia has spent this entire season with Double-A Akron, batting .297/.346/.490 with 14 home runs and 52 RBI. The catcher is the top prospect in Cleveland's organization and recorded a 50-game hitting streak in 2016. Moving forward, Mejia will get his first taste of the majors over the next month and will likely see some action as the Indians continue to pull away from the pack in the AL Central. Once the regular season ends, Mejia is set to get some opportunities at the hot corner in the Arizona Fall League.

Indians' Francisco Mejia: Set to play some third base in AFL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia will get some reps at third base in the Arizona Fall League, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Mejia was listed as an infielder when preliminary AFL rosters were released, and it wasn't a mistake. The 21-year-old will indeed play some third this fall, but it's not the beginning of a full-time positional switch; the Indians are just trying to enhance Mejia's defensive versatility. Maintaining catcher eligibility will be big for Mejia's fantasy value, but it's looking like Mejia's bat will profile just fine at any position (.300/.349/.499 this season) if a move out from behind the plate is necessary at some point down the line.

Indians' Francisco Mejia: Still hitting over .300 at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia, 21, is batting .307/.358/.509 with 13 home runs, 49 RBI and seven steals through 84 games at Double-A Akron.

Mejia has had two short stints on the disabled list in 2017, but otherwise it has been another successful season for arguably the top catching prospect in baseball. Yan Gomes has been disappointing with the bat this season, but he is under contract through 2019, so the Indians may look at other ways to get Mejia in the starting lineup next season.
