AJ Cassavell of MLB.com writes that Francisco Mejia has "looked sharp" early on in Padres summer camp.
Mejia split time with Austin Hedges last year but got hot for a stretch in the middle of the summer. He would be a wildly interesting fantasy option if given the bulk of starts behind the plate. However, his defense isn't close to what Hedges can provide. The playing time between the two will be a story to watch early on in this truncated MLB campaign.
Francisco Mejia went 1-for-4 with a double, an RBI, and a run scored in the Padres' 6-4 loss to the Dodgers on Wednesday.
Mejia is now 5-for-14 since being activated off the injured list on September 17th. He has had a fantastic second half of the season and will be a top-10 fantasy catcher entering 2020.
Francisco Mejia went 1-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored in the Padres' win over the Red Sox on Sunday.
What was notable here was Mejia starting in left field for the second time in about a week. He has become San Diego's everyday catcher, but it's encouraging they want to keep fitting him into the lineup. Mejia has been on a tear here in the second half and remains a locked-in starting catcher for fantasy purposes.
Francisco Mejia went 2-for-3 with a triple, a walk, an RBI, and a run scored in the Padres' loss to the Phillies on Friday night.
Mejia came into August with a .223 batting average and now has it up to .286 on the season. He is a must-start catcher right now, regardless of your format.
Francisco Mejia stayed hot on Sunday versus the Rockies, going 3-for-4 with a homer and a double as the Padres fell 8-3.
Mejia now has a whopping 13 hits in his last two games, including two homers and two doubles. The former top prospect needs to be added everywhere right now. Perhaps he is finally figuring things out at the big league level.
