Mejia hit .293 with 14 home runs over 110 games between the Indians' and Padres' AAA affiliates last season, a close approximation of his numbers for Cleveland's AA affiliate the year prior. Between 2017 and 2018, he's hit just .176 over his first 76 Major League plate appearances, but the contact skills he's displayed in the minors are exceedingly rare among Major League backstops. The bigger question is how often he'll play -- he will need to battle Austin Hedges for playing time behind the plate and may have trouble squeezing into the Padres' crowded outfield rotation. Despite the uncertainty, Mejia is a high-upside talent who is worth considering once the top eight starting catchers are off the board.

Francisco Mejia picks up one hit Sunday

Francisco Mejia went 1-for-4 with one single and one strikeout on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Mejia has become the number one catcher for the Padres, as they are using the month of September to see what potential he may give them in the future. For fantasy purposes he should remain unowned, as he has posted a very low .209 AVG and .289 OBP.
