WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
|Mejia signed at a late age shortly before the 2019 season started. He throws 93-95 mph with a good curve.
Pitching in relief, Mejia dominated the DSL, to put it mildly. He didn’t allow a single extra-base hit, with opponents batting just 137/213/137, and he struck out just under half the batters he faced.
The Pirates brought Mejia to fall instructionals in 2019, so he should have been in the US in 2020. His height obviously raises questions about his projectability.
