The Padres option Francisco Mejia to their alternate training site.
Mejia has had another rough season at the plate, hitting .077 with one homer in 17 games. The former top prospect might no longer be seen as the backstop of the future in San Diego. Eric Hosmer (finger) was activated off the injured list in a corresponding move.
The Padres activated Francisco Mejia (thumb) off the 10-day IL.
It's unclear how much playing time he'll get moving forward. The Padres acquired both Austin Nola and Jason Castro while he was sidelined. He's certainly not on the fantasy radar the rest of the way.
The Padres placed Francisco Mejia on the 10-day injured list with a left thumb contusion.
Mejia hasn't been himself this year, batting just .079 in 16 games. Perhaps this explains why. Austin Hedges should do the majority of the catching in his absence.
Padres catcher Francisco Mejia is dealing with a left thumb contusion.
Mejia hasn't looked like himself at the plate this year, batting just .079 with one homer. Perhaps now we know why. It's unclear if the thumb issue is going to cause Mejia to spend some time on the injured list.
Francisco Mejia went hitless in three at bats in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Diamondbacks.
Mejia is hitting an alarming .088/.162/.206 so far this year. He's supposed to be the "offensive" option between him and Austin Hedges, so this certainly isn't good for his projected playing time moving forward.
