Mella was recalled from Double-A Pensacola on Tuesday, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
As a member of the 40-man roster, it's not surprising to see Mella recalled with expanded rosters despite the fact he has only logged seven innings above Double-A in his career. Mella improved as the season went on, notching a 3.79 ERA over his last 10 starts and finishing his season with the Blue Wahoos with a 4.30 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 109 strikeouts. He hasn't developed into the type of strikeout pitcher that many thought he would when he was in the lower levels of the minors, but Mella could potentially profile as a back-end starter or middle reliever in the coming years.
