Fantasy Focus: Impact Rookies- Francisco Mejia

Francisco Mejia, C/3B/OF.  DOB:  10/27/2018.  B-S, T-R.  5'10", 180 lbs.

2018 AAA(Indians):  .279/.328/.426, 22 2B, 7 HR, 5.4 BB%, 17.3 K%, 336 PA.
2018 AAA(Padres):  .328/.364/.582, 8 2B, 7 HR, 5.3 BB%, 18.9 K%, 132 PA.
2018 MLB(Padres):  .179/.258/.375, 3 HR, 8.1 BB%, 30.6 K%, 62 PA.

Francisco Mejia was the centerpiece of the trade that sent Brad Hand from the Padres to the Indians.  He's been a catcher most of his minor league career but the Indians were trying to increase his positional versatility.  Whatever Mejia is going to become in the majors, he's ready to start doing it now.  Padres seem to want him as a catcher, but they also have Austin Hedges.  Mejia could eventually be a top option at catcher, but probably not much fantasy impact right away due to playing time issues.
