Adalberto Mejia’s first Arizona Fall League start disappoints
After struggling to get hitters out in the bullpen, Scottsdale Scorpions manager Russ Morman gave San Francisco Giants prospect Adalberto Mejia a shot as the starting pitcher — where the left-hander excelled in the 2013 regular season with Class A San Jose.
Things remained the same, and for now, at least, they may have gotten worse.
Mejia entered Monday’s ballgame having walked three hitters in eight innings pitched with Scottsdale, with the majority of the damage coming from the eight hits — including two home runs — he’d allowed in his first four outings. He was knocked out of the game with one out in the third inning after allowing his third walk of the game.
