The Diamondbacks acquired RHP Humberto Mejia in a trade from the Miami Marlins on Monday.
Mejia was part of the deal that sent Starling Marte to the Marlins and Caleb Smith back to the Diamondbacks. The 23-year-old has registered a 5.40 ERA through three starts this summer.
Humberto Mejia fell to 0-2 on Sunday against the Nationals, allowing four runs (two earned) on seven hits over 3 2/3 innings pitched.
Mejia struck out four and walked two as the Marlins went on to lose 9-3. The 23-year-old has now made three starts this year but hasn't pitched more than four innings in any of them. He isn't worth considering in fantasy at this time.
Humberto Mejia took the loss on Tuesday against the Mets, allowing three runs on four hits over four innings pitched.
Mejia was victimized by two homers in this one. The 23-year-old rookie gets the Nationals this weekend, but it appears unlikely that he'll pitch deep enough into that start to be fantasy relevant.
The Marlins announced that Humberto Mejia will start on Tuesday against the Mets.
Mejia made his MLB debut back on August 7th, allowing one run in 2 1/3 innings while striking out six. The 23-year-old is a talented young pitcher but he likely isn't stretched out enough to be a streaming option in fantasy.
Humberto Mejia made his MLB debut on Friday against the Mets, allowing one run over 2 1/3 innings while striking out six.
Mejia allowed two hits and walked two, needing 67 pitches to get through his outing. What's incredible is that the 23-year-old had never pitched above A-ball before this start. It's unclear what Miami's plans are for him moving forward, but he is worth keeping tabs on if he continues pitching well.
