canada goose clearance sale Francisco Mejia’s run with the big league club at Spring Training came to an end on March 12th, as he was optioned to canada goose outlet toronto address Triple A Columbus. The intent of shipping him out was to accelerate his return to the majors. canada goose clearance sale

canada goose The team’s top prospect is currently blocked by two of the game’s best defensive catchers in Yan Gomes and Roberto Perez, but Manager Terry Francona and the rest of the organization want Mejia’s bat in the lineup as soon as possible. canada goose

Canada Goose Jackets “We canada goose jacket outlet sale wanted to reinforce that this is by no means an indictment on his catching,” Francona said Monday. “If anything, we were really pleased with his progression. We just told him ‘Look, we have Perez and Gomes. Do the math.’ He’s such an advanced hitter that if he’s able to play another position, and then there’s an injury or something, he could find himself not only in the big leagues or playing.” Canada Goose Jackets

Canada Goose Outlet With an outfield in search of a right handed bat to spell a starting group of all lefties, the 22 year old switch hitter could certainly prove as the best bat available. His capability to play the position will be seen in the coming canada goose outlet in uk weeks. Canada Goose Outlet

canada goose deals Mejia certainly has the arm to play canada goose uk site right, projecting a canada goose outlet in usa 70/double plus arm from behind the dish, but his range could prove an issue. As a catcher, Mejia projects just 45 as a fielder and 40 raw speed on the basepaths. Will he have the range to play regularly in the outfield? canada goose http://www.canadagoosejacketoutlett.com deals

While canada goose outlet 80 off the arm projects to be effective as a right canada goose outlet store quebec fielder, Progressive Field generally plays well to hitters going to right field, indicated by 100+ park factors for left handed canada goose outlet london hitters (100 indicates league average offense).

A spacious right field could be troublesome for the less fleet of foot, though it could be offset by the incredibly rangy Bradley Zimmer in center.

Not to mention Fangraphs/The Athletic’s Travis Sawchick pointing out that the Indians should consider adding hitting at the expense of fielding. Sawchick notes that plays at every position but left field and third base have decreased each year since 2014 because of the rising HR and K rates, making it more beneficial to err on the side of offense.

cheap Canada Goose Despite an actual uptick in left field plays, canada goose jacket outlet uk the position saw just around 6,000 plays in 2017, the least of any position in the majors. A big arm would not hurt in left field, especially with the mini monster playing up double numbers for righties and lefties alike. cheap Canada Goose

Michael Brantley’s arm and ability to play the left field wall has proven an asset in recent years, but therein lies another issue in itself. Brantley.

When healthy, the All Star should be penciled into the Indians lineup each day and is not a candidate for a platoon. That fleeting health could bode well for Mejia canada goose shop uk should he canada goose outlet london uk make strides at the position, but is not best case for the team.

Lonnie Chisenhall saw a jump in production against lefties in 2016, again when healthy. There is no immediate need to move off of the lefty in right field, especially in favor of a player who is learning the position.

canada goose black friday sale Melvin Upton Jr. and Rajai Davis have each performed well in Spring Training, with the former still the leader in the clubhouse to be the fourth outfielder when camp breaks. Brandon Guyer’s recovery will influence the position as well. canada goose black friday sale

Prior to his 50 game hit streak in A Ball during the 2016 season, Mejia was benched on multiple occasions for a lack of hustle. Word out of the farm system is that the prospect has curbed any possible effort issues in the season since, but would obviously not be tolerated at canada goose outlet parka the major league level, especially as Francona preached ‘winning baseball’ towards Yandy Diaz recently.

It would be difficult to point the finger at Mejia at this point anyway, given that he has already made the effort to try third base, and is making another switch.

Canada Goose online “I don’t know how excited he was to play third base,” Francona added. “If you want to be a full time catcher, we’ll back you 100 percent, but when he laid it out for him there, he was like ‘No, I need to do this.'” Canada Goose online

canada goose clearance Mejia has also shown great growth behind the plate, despite not yet being at the level of Gomes and Perez. The ability to learn the game’s toughest position psychologically shows obvious mental aptitude, making it easier to believe he could handle the corner canada goose outlet outfield, canada goose outlet uk which resides towards the bottom of the defensive hierarchy canada goose clearance.
