Indians' Francisco Mejia: Pulled at Triple-A after HBP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia was removed from his game Sunday with Triple-A Columbus after being struck on the right forearm by a pitch, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. He was diagnosed with a contusion and is considered day-to-day.

It sounds like Mejia's departure was precautionary more than anything, but any residual soreness he might experience could be enough to keep him on the bench for the next couple of days. A permanent promotion to the big leagues doesn't seem imminent for the catching prospect, who hasn't shown the desired defensive polish behind the plate nor elsewhere for the Indians to justify opening up a regular lineup spot for him.

Indians' Francisco Mejia: Outfield transition going poorly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia hasn't been transitioning to the outfield as well as Cleveland has hoped, Chris Assenheimer of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

The Indians have been working to make Mejia an outfielder as the team has more of a need there than behind the plate, but Mejia hasn't progressed as the team had hoped, apparently because he still views himself as a catcher. Still, once the team feels satisfied with him defensively in the outfield, he could earn a promotion and regular playing time with Lonnie Chisenhall (calf) facing an extended absence. The 22-year-old has hit a solid .279/.327/.435 for Triple-A Columbus this season.

Indians' Francisco Mejia: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday.

Mejia will head back to the minors after a one-day stay with the Indians in order to free up a roster spot for Tuesday's starter, Adam Plutko, who was summoned from the minors in a corresponding roster move. The 22-year-old didn't appear in a game during his brief stint with the Indians. He'll continue to see regular at-bats with the Clippers.

Indians' Francisco Mejia: Called up to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia was called up by the Indians on Monday, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports.

Despite seeming nearly big-league ready to start the season, Mejia was sent to Triple-A Columbus, in part to get some work in the outfield, as Cleveland was apparently dissatisfied with his work at catcher. He's done very little to force his way back to the majors this season, hitting a mere .214/.271/.333, but he'll be up anyway as the Indians need a backup catcher with Roberto Perez out with a bruised hand. Perez has not been placed on the disabled list, however, so Mejia's stay could be short.

Indians' Francisco Mejia: Exits after hit by pitch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia was removed from Tuesday's game with Triple-A Columbus after being hit by a pitch on the left forearm, John Wagner of The Toledo Blade reports.

Mejia initially remained in the game after taking a pitch off his forearm in the top of the eighth inning, but he was replaced behind the dish prior to the bottom half of the frame. He'll undergo further evaluation Wednesday, after which the severity of the issue should be known.
