  • Francisco Mejia To Remain With Rays

    Headshot for Christian Bethancourt

    Tampa Bay Rays catcher Francisco Mejia reportedly accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Durham and will remain with the organization for the time being. Mejia cleared waivers after being designated for assignment recently and will now report to Durham. The 27-year-old backstop remains under team control for next season, but there's a good chance he'll be looking to latch on with another organization this winter. Before being DFA'd last week, he was hitting .227/.258/.400 with five home runs, 11 doubles, 19 RBI and 22 runs scored in 160 trips to the plate over 50 games for the Rays in his third season with the team. For now, Tampa will roll with Christian Bethancourt and Rene Pinto as their catchers on the big-league roster.

  • Rays Designate Francisco Mejia For Assignment

    Headshot for Francisco Mejia

    The Tampa Bay Rays activated catcher Francisco Mejia (knee) from the 10-day injured list on Tuesday and then designated him for assignment. The Rays have decided to move on from Mejia after he recovered from a left-knee sprain. The 27-year-old Dominican backstop hit .227 (34-for-150) for the Rays this year with five home runs, 11 doubles, 19 RBI and 22 runs scored in 160 plate appearances and 50 games. Mejia should be able to latch on with another organization fairly quickly as catching depth. The Rays will move forward with a combination of Christian Bethancourt and Rene Pinto as their primary catchers at the big-league level.

    Headshot for Francisco Mejia

    Tampa Bay Rays catcher Francisco Mejia (knee) appear in a simulated game on Friday and then begin a rehab assignment next week, according to If all goes well, the 27-year-old could return to the Rays by August 22. Mejia has been on the injured list since July 21 following a left knee injury he sustained during a play at the plate. Over 50 games this season, the former prospect is slashing .227/.258/.400 with five long balls, 22 runs, and 19 RBI. Fantasy managers can stay away from Mejia, who should continue to back up Christian Bethancourt upon his return.

  • Francisco Mejia Placed On 10-Day Injured List

    Headshot for Francisco Mejia

    Tampa Bay Rays catcher Francisco Mejia (knee) was forced to exit early during Thursday's game against the Baltimore Orioles due to knee discomfort. He underwent further testing that revealed Mejia suffered a left knee MCL sprain. He'll now be shut down for an extended period of time. That means, Christian Bethancourt should do a majority of the catching in Tampa Bay. Also, catcher Rene Pinto was recalled to take Mejia's spot on the active roster. He was slashing .253/.306/.521 with nine homers over 37 games in Triple-A this season. He's unlikely to have much fantasy value with Bethancourt doing a majority of the catching.

  • Francisco Mejia Exits Early With Knee Discomfort

    Headshot for Francisco Mejia

    Tampa Bay Rays catcher Francisco Mejia (knee) exited Thursday's game against the Baltimore Orioles with left knee discomfort. He went 1-for-2 with an RBI before leaving Thursday's contest during the seventh inning. The severity of Mejia's injury is unknown, and he is considered day-to-day. The Rays will provide an update after the game. Mejia is slashing .227/.258/.400 with five home runs, 19 RBI, and 22 runs across 50 games in 2023. Christian Bethancourt replaced Mejia in Thursday's game. Bethancourt would see an uptick in at-bats if Mejia were to miss any games. The 31-year-old is hitting .417 (5-for-12) over his last three contests.
