Royals' Erick Mejia: Returns to Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia signed a minor-league contract with the Royals on Monday, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Mejia has appeared in 17 career games at the highest level, all with the Royals over the last two seasons. He owns a poor .167/.244/.222 career slash line in that limited action. He was non-tendered by the team in December but will be a part of the organization again in 2021, though he's unlikely to find himself in a prominent role.

Erick Mejia: Parts ways with Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia was non-tendered by the Royals on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old joined Kansas City on a minors deal last offseason and appeared in eight games, going 1-for-14 with seven strikeouts and a stolen base. Mejia returns to free agency after spending the last two years with the Royals.

Royals' Erick Mejia: Sent to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia was optioned to the alternate training site Wednesday.

Mejia was promoted to the big-league club last week and went 1-for-6 with a double and a stolen base in two appearances. Franchy Cordero (wrist) returns from the injured list in a corresponding move.

Royals' Erick Mejia: Gets big-league callup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Royals recalled Mejia from their alternate training site Wednesday.

Mejia saw time at all three outfield spots and at three infield spots in 2019 at the Triple-A level, so he'll provide the Royals with a versatile option off the bench. He likely won't be in store for many starts over the final week and a half of the regular season, however.

Royals' Erick Mejia: Sent down Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia was optioned to the Royals' alternate training site Thursday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

As someone capable of playing almost any position on the field but incapable of doing much damage at the plate, Mejia was a luxury option on the 30-man roster. However, with Thursday being the deadline to cut down to 28 men, he was a natural option to be demoted. He is 0-for-8 with five strikeouts this season.

Royals' Erick Mejia: Cracks Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia was added to the Royals' 30-man roster Thursday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

As expected, Mejia will open the abbreviated 2020 season as a super-utility player for Kansas City. The 25-year-old switch hitter spent most of the 2019 season with Triple-A Omaha, slashing .271/.339/.382 with seven home runs and 19 steals in 556 plate appearances.

Royals' Erick Mejia: Getting work at catcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia has been getting work at catcher during summer camp, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

He appears to have cemented a spot on the 30-man roster as a super-utility player. Mejia can theoretically play almost any position on the field for Kansas City and has gotten positive reviews for his abilities behind the dish. Cam Gallagher and Meibrys Viloria are both questionable for the start of the season and Oscar Hernandez is not a lock to make the roster, so it's possible Mejia could be the de facto backup catcher to start the year. The 25-year-old switch hitter slashed .271/.339/.382 with seven home runs and 19 steals in 556 plate appearances at Triple-A last season.

Royals' Erick Mejia: In 60-man player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia will be a part of the Royals' 60-man player pool this season, Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes reports.

He was in camp on a minor-league deal prior to the shutdown. While Mejia could see MLB action again this season, it would likely be as a fifth or sixth outfielder who gets pinch running opportunities and comes in as a defensive replacement late in games.

Royals' Erick Mejia: Returns to Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia signed a minor-league deal with the Royals on Tuesday.

Mejia got his first taste of the big leagues with Kansas City last season, appearing in nine games. He spent the bulk of the season with Triple-A Omaha, where he hit just .271/.339/.382.

Erick Mejia: Doesn't agree to contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia was non-tendered by the Royals on Monday, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Mejia made his major-league debut during the 2019 season, going 5-for-22 at the dish with four RBI over nine games. Following Monday's transaction, he'll likely need to accept a minor-league deal elsewhere.

Royals' Erick Mejia: Earns promotion to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia had his contract selected from Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Mejia has slashed .271/.339/.382 with seven homers, 63 RBI and 19 stolen bases over 128 games this season for the Storm Chasers, and he'll get a chance with the big-league team down the stretch.

Royals' Erick Mejia: Dealt to Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia was traded to the Royals on Thursday as part of a three-team deal.

The Royals received Mejia and pitcher Trevor Oaks in the deal while sending Scott Alexander to the Dodgers and Joakim Soria to the White Sox. Mejia slashed .289/.357/.413 and swiped 25 bags with Double-A Tulsa last season. He'll begin the 2018 campaign in the Royals' minor-league system.
