Giants pitching prospect Adalberto Mejia has been suspended 50 games by Major League Baseball for testing positive for a stimulant.
Mejia, 21, is coming off a down season at Double-A, having posted a 4.67 ERA with 82 strikeouts over 108 innings. He remains one of the Giants' top prospects, though, with the ceiling of a mid-rotation starter. Nov 14 - 3:27 PM

Giants left-handed pitching prospect Adalberto Mejia threw five shutout innings, scattering two hits and striking out one batter for Double-A Richmond.

Mejia uses an advanced understanding of pitching and three average pitches (fastball, slider, changeup) to keep batters off balance, but he has struggled against the more advanced hitters in Double-A. For the season, opposing batters have hit .292/.330/.464 off him. He still projects as a mid-rotation starter who could reach the major leagues in 2015, but his struggles in Double-A have taken some of the shine off the apple.

Giants left-handed pitching prospect Adalberto Mejia went seven shutout innings for Double-A Richmond on Sunday, striking out seven batters.

Mejia has struggled in 2014, as opposing batters have hit .294/.331/.492 for the season. He allowed four hits and one walk, lowering his ERA to 5.61 and WHIP to 1.433. Mejia was a trendy pick to be a breakout pitcher in 2014, and this could be the first big step in a positive direction.

Giants left-handed pitching prospect Adalberto Mejia struck out six in six innings on Friday in his return to the mound after being hit by a line drive earlier in the week.

Mejia showed no ill effects, allowing just four hits, one walk, and one run for Double-A Richmond. It appears that the Giants were being cautious with one of their top prospects. Mejia has a 3.75 ERA and 1.083 WHIP for the season with a 9.0 K/9, and could see time in San Francisco as soon as the end of the 2014 season.

Giants left-handed pitching prospect Adalberto Mejia has a bruised shin after being hit by a line drive off the bat of Pirates prospect Alen Hanson on Friday.

Fortunately, the injury is not considered serious and Mejia will make his next start. Mejia has started slowly in 2014, but he had a 6.08 ERA after his first three starts of 2013, so he may need a few starts to get into a groove.

Giants prospect left-hander Adalberto Mejia has been assigned to Double-A Richmond.

The Flying Squirrels begin their season on Thursday, April 3. Mejia will never be at the top of a prospect list, but with his advanced pitchability and a solid three pitch mix (fastball, slider, changeup), Mejia could be a solid mid-rotation stalwart. He won't turn 21 until late June, so keep an eye on him as he could make the majors as soon as early 2015.
