Mejia finished up 2017 with a disappointing .229/.286/.268 slash line over 44 games with Low-A Lake County.
The outfield prospect suffered a wrist injury that landed him on the DL in the middle of the year. When he returned, Mejia continued to offer unappealing results. The 22-year-old had no problem dominating in rookie ball, but he's got a long way to go before reaching MiLB's higher levels. Mejia's speed is lethal, but if he can't get on base, his most appealing attribute will be rendered moot.
Mejia (wrist) was activated from the 7-day disabled list on Thursday.
Mejia is back with Low-A Lake County after successfully completing a rehab assignment with the Indians' rookie team. The 22-year-old will look to turn things around at the plate after posting an unimpressive .225/.253/.270 line in 25 games before landing on the shelf.
The speedy outfielder already has 24 at-bats under his belt with the Arizona Indians, so he'll likely rejoin Low-A Lake County in the near future. Prior to the injury, Mejia slashed just .225/.253/.270 with 17 strikeouts in 25 games with the Captains.
Mejia was placed on the 7-day disabled list at Low-A Lake County due to wrist soreness.
The 21-year-old center fielder hadn't played since May 5 due to the injury and had been scuffling prior to being shut down, as he batted just .227/.255/.273 across 95 plate appearances. Mejia doesn't project to hit for much power as he advances through the Indians' system, but he's a threat on the bases and could have a future as a fourth or fifth outfielder.
