Cardinals' Alex Mejia: Hitless in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia went 0-for-4 in Sunday's season-ending 6-1 loss to the Brewers.

Mejia couldn't parlay his September call-up into much production, as he finished just 2-for-32 in what was his second big-league stint. The 26-year-old prospect enjoyed what was easily the most successful stop of his pro career during his 55-game stint at Triple-A Memphis this season, generating a .335/.381/.466 line over 224 plate appearances. However, with Paul DeJong having seized the Cardinals' starting shortstop job with a spectacular rookie campaign -- and Aledmys Diaz still very much a factor as well -- Mejia's potential path to the big leagues is very murky heading into the offseason.

Cardinals' Alex Mejia: Returns to Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia was called up by St. Louis on Friday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Mejia has spent the last seven weeks with Triple-A Memphis after earning his first big-league stint toward the end of June. In 10 games with the Cardinals, he went 3-for-14 from the plate during his brief opportunity. Mejia likely won't see much more action this time around, but should provide added infield depth for St. Louis moving forward.

Cardinals' Alex Mejia: Bound for Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Mejia was called up to provide depth following the demotion of Aledmys Diaz, but failed to make a real impression in limited playing time, mainly being passed over for starts in favor of Greg Garcia and Paul DeJong. He returns to Memphis, where he was slashing .263/.333/.289 over 11 games following a mid-season promotion from Double-A. Kolten Wong was reinstated from the 10-day DL in a corresponding move.

Cardinals' Alex Mejia: Takes seat Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia is out of the lineup Monday against the Marlins.

After connecting on his first career home run in Saturday's win over the Nationals, Mejia was awarded a second straight start Sunday, but couldn't capitalize on the opportunity with an 0-for-4, two-strikeout showing. Manager Mike Matheny has shown a preference for using Greg Garcia and Paul DeJong as his middle-infield combination while Kolten Wong (triceps) has been on the disabled list, so it appears Mejia will find himself on the bench in most games.

Cardinals' Alex Mejia: Smacks first big-league homer Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia went 2-for-3 with two RBI from a solo home run and a run-scoring single in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Nationals.

The rookie was responsible for all of the Cardinals' scoring on a night in which Michael Wacha and Gio Gonzalez engaged in an intense pitcher's duel. Mejia is getting his first exposure to big-league arms after five-plus minor-league campaigns, so some struggles are to be expected. However, now that he's gotten his first major-league hit and home run out of the way, he's likely to be moving forward with a healthy dose of confidence.
