Indians' J.C. Mejia: Sent back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday.

Mejia was summoned as the 29th man for Tuesday's doubleheader versus Minnesota, but he did not appear in either game before returning to Columbus. With two doubleheaders on the schedule next week, it's possible Mejia could be called up again to provide length out of the bullpen.

Indians' J.C. Mejia: Up as extra man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia was recalled to serve as the extra man for Tuesday's doubleheader against the Twins, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Mejia was optioned last Tuesday but returns a week later to serve as presumably a low-leverage relief option. He's accomplished very little in his first taste of the majors this season, struggling to an 8.75 ERA and 1.65 WHIP in 11 starts and three relief appearances.

Indians' J.C. Mejia: Recalled by Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Thursday, Chris Assenheimer of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Mejia was sent to the minors in early August but didn't fare very well across his three starts with the Triple-A club. The right-hander posted a 9.64 ERA and 2.04 WHIP in 9.1 innings across his three most recent Triple-A appearances and will likely slot into a low-leverage bullpen role with the major-league squad.

Indians' J.C. Mejia: Dropped from active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Saturday.

Mejia clearly needed a reset, as he's allowed four or more earned runs in each of his last six starts, struggling to a 12.55 ERA and 2.11 WHIP over that stretch and raising his season ERA to 8.75. His spot in the rotation is due up Monday against Cincinnati, so Cleveland will have to call up a starter by then. For now, it's infielder Andres Gimenez who will take his place on the roster.

Indians' J.C. Mejia: Trampled by Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia (1-7) took the loss Wednesday, surrendering eight runs on seven hits and four walks over 2.1 innings as Cleveland fell 8-6 to the Blue Jays. He failed to strike out a batter.

George Springer clobbered the first pitch he saw for a solo shot to lead off the bottom of the first inning, and things never got any better for Mejia. The rookie is saddled with an 8.75 ERA through his first 47.1 big-league innings thanks in part to 11 homers allowed, and only Cleveland's injury woes are keeping him in the rotation.

Indians' J.C. Mejia: Walks four in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia allowed four runs on four hits and four walks over 4.1 innings in Friday's loss to the White Sox. He struck out two and did not factor in the decision.

Through three innings of work, the only real damage against Mejia was a solo blast by Yoan Moncada in the second. He then coughed up two more runs in the fourth and one final run in the fifth. It was his fifth straight outing giving up four or more runs, yielding 25 runs through 21.1 innings (10.55 ERA) during that span. On the year, the right-handed rookie owns a 7.20 ERA through 13 appearances. For now, he's projected to face the Blue Jays on the road next week.

Indians' J.C. Mejia: Hit hard again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia (1-6) took the loss Saturday as Cleveland fell 8-2 to the Rays, coughing up five runs on seven hits -- including three home runs -- and two walks over six innings. He struck out six.

The rookie did give his team some length, lasting six innings for only the second time in nine starts, but Mejia left too many juicy pitches over the plate as five of the seven hits off him went for extra bases. The 24-year-old has served up an ugly nine homers over his last 28 big-league innings, posting a 9.00 ERA and 1.57 WHIP over that stretch despite a superficially strong 28:10 K:BB.

Indians' J.C. Mejia: Yields four runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia (1-5) allowed four runs on seven hits and two walks over 4.1 innings Monday, striking out eight and taking a loss against the Astros.

Mejia allowed RBI base hits in the first and fourth innings before coughing up a two-run shot to Yordan Alvarez in the fifth, knocking him out of the contest. He's given up at least four runs in four of his last five outings, driving his ERA up to 7.53 through 34.2 innings. He's also lost five straight decisions dating back to June 9. Mejia is currently projected to face the Rays at home this weekend.

Indians' J.C. Mejia: Recalled prior to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia was recalled by Cleveland ahead of Monday's start against the Astros.

Mejia made one start for Triple-A Columbus after he was sent down prior to the All-Star break, and he gave up seven runs on four hits and three walks while striking out two in 2.2 innings. The right-hander has given up six runs in each of his last two major-league appearances, but he'll return to the mound for the series opener in Houston.

Indians' J.C. Mejia: Rejoining rotation after break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cleveland plans to call up Mejia from Triple-A Columbus to start its fourth game of the second half July 19 in Houston, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Mejia was sent back to Columbus following his start Wednesday in Tampa Bay, but that was mostly for roster-management purposes, as the young right-hander wouldn't have had sufficient rest to contribute out of the bullpen before the end of Cleveland's first-half schedule. He'll end up settling back into the rotation coming out of the All-Star break, with he and Triston McKenzie getting the nods for the final two starting spots over Sam Hentges.

Indians' J.C. Mejia: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Thursday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Mejia was hit hard in Wednesday's matinee against the Rays and allowed six runs on four hits and two walks while striking out two in 2.2 innings to take the loss. He's now been charged with losses in four of his last six appearances, and he'll head to the minors to make room for Zach Plesac (thumb), who was reinstated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. It's not yet clear whether the right-hander could reclaim a rotation spot after the All-Star break.

Indians' J.C. Mejia: Shelled in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia (1-4) allowed six runs on four hits and two walks in 2.2 innings, striking out a pair of batters and enduring the loss in Wednesday's 8-1 loss to the Rays.

The righty's 73rd and final pitch of the afternoon was launched to right-center by Kevin Kiermaier for a three-run home run. Combined with his previous start, Mejia has now yielded 12 runs in his last 6.2 innings, raising his ERA to a dismal 7.42 through 30.1 total innings. He'll almost certainly be relegated to the bullpen, or Triple-A, once Cleveland's rotation is healthy again, but he may still enjoy starter status following the All-Star break while Shane Bieber (shoulder) and Aaron Civale (finger) continue working their way back.

Indians' J.C. Mejia: Starting Game 1 of twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia will be the starting pitcher for Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against Tampa Bay.

Mejia was originally slated to take the ball Tuesday, but with the game postponed due to Tropical Storm Elsa, he'll take the ball a day later instead. The right-hander will be looking to bounce back from a shaky outing in which he allowed six earned runs on five hits and two walks against the Astros on July 1.

Indians' J.C. Mejia: Tuesday's start pushed back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia won't start Tuesday against the Rays after the game was postponed due to Tropical Storm Elsa.

Mejia could be a candidate to start one of the two games in Wednesday's doubleheader against Tampa Bay following Tuesday's postponement. The righty has posted a 7.80 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 15 innings across his last three starts.

Indians' J.C. Mejia: Struggles against Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia (1-3) was tagged with the loss Thursday against the Astros after allowing six runs on five hits -- including two home runs -- and two walks while fanning three across four innings.

Mejia was taken deep by Yordan Alvarez in the fourth inning and also gave up a grand slam to Jose Altuve in the fifth before being lifted. He was coming off a strong start last week against the Twins, allowing just one run through six innings, but the wheels came off here, and he's now given up at least four runs in three of his last five appearances. The right-hander, who owns a 6.18 ERA across nine outings (six starts) thus far, is expected to pitch again next week on the road against Tampa Bay.

Indians' J.C. Mejia: Tuesday's game postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia won't pitch as scheduled Tuesday against the Tigers since the game was postponed due to inclement weather.

The game will be made up via a doubleheader Wednesday. Cal Quantrill and Logan Allen will start during the twin bill, per Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal. According to Lewis, Mejia got fully prepped for Tuesday's game before it was called, so he'll receive a day to reset before starting Thursday.

Indians' J.C. Mejia: Strong in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia allowed a run on four hits and two walks with six strikeouts across six innings versus Minnesota on Thursday. He did not factor in the decision.

Mejia had allowed 12 runs across 9.2 innings in his last three outings, but he delivered a strong performance Thursday. The rookie right-hander's lone mistake was a wild pitch that allowed Luis Arraez to score in the first inning. The quality start lowered Mejia's ERA to 4.94 with a 1.18 WHIP and 22:7 K:BB across 23.2 innings this season. He carries a 1-2 record into his next start, tentatively set for next week at home versus Detroit.

Indians' J.C. Mejia: Rocked by Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia (1-2) took the loss in Friday's 11-10 defeat at the hands of the Pirates, coughing up six runs on seven hits over five innings. He struck out three without walking a batter.

Starting on only three days rest, Mejia certainly didn't look very fresh when Pittsburgh ambushed him for five runs in the first inning. The rookie right-hander was able to steady the ship after that, however, and wound up giving Cleveland his longest outing so far in the majors. Mejia's 6.11 ERA isn't reflected in his 3.67 FIP, and his 1.25 WHIP and 16:5 K:BB through 17.2 innings are solid. Injuries will keep him in the rotation despite this rough outing.

June 18, 2021 10:40 AM
Indians' J.C. Mejia: Starting on short rest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia is scheduled to start Friday's game against the Pirates, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

Mejia will be returning to the hill on three days' rest after he tossed four innings (55 pitches) while not factoring into the decision in his start during Monday's 4-3 win over the Orioles. Expect Cleveland to once again restrict Mejia's workload; he has been held under 60 pitches in each of his three starts to date.

June 15, 2021 11:04 AM
Indians' Jean Carlos Mejia: Solid in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mejia didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 4-3 win over the Orioles after allowing two runs on four hits and a walk over four innings. He struck out three.

The young right-hander got the hook with a 3-2 lead after 55 pitches (34 strikes), denying him a shot at his first win since moving into the rotation. The outing was Mejia's longest yet, but it's not yet clear whether the team is going to fully stretch him out, and his usefulness in fantasy will remain limited until he begins pitching deeper into games. Mejia has a 4.26 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 13:5 K:BB through his first 12.2 big-league innings.
