4. C Francisco Mejia

Mejia is a new addition to the Indians’ top prospect list, and it seems like he will be here to stay. At just 18 years old, this Dominican-born catcher has some of the best raw tools of any catching prospect in the game. His professional career is just underway, but Mejia has already established himself as a versatile backstop¬†who is feared behind the plate as well as hitting at it. In his first professional season, Mejia strung together a respectable slash line of .282/.339/.407, while driving in 36 runs in 66 games.

Mejia is still a long way away from making his first MLB appearance, as his catching skills still need time to be refined, but it is easy to see the raw talent in his game. His strong arm behind the plate paired with his switch-hitting ability gives the organization great reason for optimism.
