2022 Player Outlook
Mejia is slowly starting to demonstrate why he was once considered one of Cleveland’s top prospects. Despite an O-swing% (percentage of pitches a batter swings at outside the strike zone) significantly higher than the league average, Mejia’s 80.7 Contact% was the highest of his career and more than 4% higher than the league average. Mike Zunino is clearly the Rays’ starting catcher, but Mejia will get a fair share of playing time this season. He’ll have moderate fantasy value in two catcher leagues.
