WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE

Mejia signed at a late age shortly before the 2019 season started.  He throws 93-95 mph with a good curve.

2019
DSL:  2-1-7, 1.74 ERA, 0.82 WHIP, 20.2 IP, 3.0 BB/9, 16.1 K/9

Pitching in relief, Mejia dominated the DSL, to put it mildly.  He didn’t allow a single extra-base hit, with opponents batting just 137/213/137, and he struck out just under half the batters he faced.

The Pirates brought Mejia to fall instructionals, so he should be in the GCL or, quite likely, at a higher level in 2020.  The Pirates have often signed smaller pitchers, often at later-then-usual ages, and seen them do very well in the low minors.  The question is always projection.
