Organization Prospect Rankings
If not for a separated shoulder that ended his 2013 season early, Mejia might not have had to share the middle infield in 2014 with Rayder Ascanio in the Rookie-level Arizona League. But because that injury cost him a month, he came back to the AZL where he teamed with Ascanio to form a dynamic duo. Mejia has much more present strength than his teammate, which was apparent as he finished tied for third in the AZL with six triples. An above-average runner, he shows the pop to grow into an average hitter with 5-10 home run power, and he has advanced plate discipline for his age. He's not nearly as smooth or flashy a defender as Ascanio, but he has a chance to be an average or even tick above-average second baseman who is a fringy defender at shortstop because of average actions and range. That might be selling Mejia a little short because he does have a plus arm. He may jump ahead of Ascanio to head to short-season Everett.
