Season in review: Miguel Mejia

Miguel Mejia did not join the Connecticut Tigers until July, but he quickly established himself as one of team’s most important pitchers while serving in a variety of roles.

Miguel Mejia proved to be a valuable and versatile reliever for the CT Tigers

Mejia made two spot starts with Connecticut and appeared in 11 games out of the bullpen, mostly as a long reliever.  He finished the season with a 1.02 ERA in 35.1 innings pitched.  A .231 batting average on balls in play contributed to Mejia’s sterling ERA, but his strong strikeout rate (8.41 SO/9) and 2.89 FIP indicate his excellent performance with Connecticut was not simply a fluke.

Mejia does not possess overwhelming stuff, but his four-pitch arsenal was good enough for him to succeed in the New York-Penn League.  Mejia’s fastball sits at 87-90 mph and touches 91.  He also throws a low 80s slider, a slower low-to-mid 70s curveball and a changeup.
