DateQuestionAnswer
2015-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Adalberto Mejia still project as an future #3 SP? How much does his suspension hurt his development?
(Gravybill from The Bowery)
I think so, yes. We are talking about a fairly young talent with a good feel for his offerings, and his mechanical issues are of the type that provide two possible positive outcomes -- (1) with enough reps/instruction he can clean things up and see his stuff tick/command tick-up, or (2) with enough reps he can figure out how to make his quirks work for him pitch-to-pitch, and you have an effective mid-rotation arm wrapped in a non-traditional mechanical package.

The suspension hurts because more than anything he needs to just continue to throw. But as noted in his write-up, if he uses this time to improve conditioning, off-field work/prep, etc., it might be a nice reset before he begins the second half of his minor league development. The body and mechanics are big questions, but mid-rotation upside still a solid possible outcome for me. (NL West Top 10s With Nick Faleris)
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)Hello, good sir! Would you be so kind as to rank the following high upside arms? Jose Martinez, Adalberto Mejia, Lewis Thorpe, Alberto Tirado.
(Gravybill from New York, NY)
My order of preference: Tirado, Martinez, Mejia, Thorpe but all have pluses and minuses. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-02-26 19:00:00 (link to chat)How would you rank Adalberto Mejia, Nick Kingham, Lewis Thorpe, and Vincent Velazquez?
(Victor from Dumfries)
- Kingham, Mejia, Thorpe and Velazquez. I like Kingham's profile. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-02-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Which prospect in the Giants system besides Crick has the most upside?
(Chris from Bay Area)
One of their arms. I'll go with Adalberto Mejia, who has a chance for three plus pitches. Someone could make a case for Edwin Escobar, but I won't do that. (Ronit Shah)
2013-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Vegas over/under number of number 2 or better starters from this group: Lewis Thorpe, Julio Urias, Hunter Harvey, Edwin Diaz, Alex Reyes, Jesse Hahn, Steven Matz, Adalberto Mejia.
(huggirl from Joisey)
From that group, one pitcher will develop into a number two starter (or better). I was tempted to say 0. (Jason Parks)
