Top Victor Victor Mesa News

  • Marlins' Victor Victor Mesa: Earns promotion

    The Marlins promoted Mesa from High-A Jupiter to Double-A Jacksonville on Monday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    After a two-year layoff from organized baseball while he defected from Cuba, Mesa understandably hasn't posted standout production in his first season in affiliated ball. The 23-year-old managed a lowly 73 wRC+ for the duration of his stay in Jupiter, but the Marlins felt he was deserving of a callup in light of his recent form at the plate over the past month. Since June 30, Mesa submitted a .321/.342/.358 slash line (109 wRC+) while stealing six bases in as many attempts.

  • Marlins' Victor Victor Mesa: Feast or famine at Jupiter

    Mesa went 3-for-4 with a double, a run scored and a stolen base for High-A Jupiter on Sunday.

    The 22-year-old Cuban has now put together four multi-hit performances in his last 10 games, but he's failed to get a hit at all in the other six, leaving Mesa with a .286/.340/.310 slash line over that stretch with two steals, three runs and five RBI. The lack of game power remains a concern, and his transition to stateside ball has hardly gone as smoothly as the Marlins would have liked, but Mesa is showing signs of coming around. A big second half from him isn't out of the question, and with his prospect status having taken a hit due to his early struggles, he could present a nice buy-low opportunity in dynasty leagues.

  • Marlins' Victor Victor Mesa: Quiet start to pro career

    Mesa is slashing .225/.250/.238 through 19 games with High-A Jupiter with four RBI and five stolen bases.

    The Marlins gave the 22-year-old Cuban a fairly challenging assignment to begin his pro career in North America, and while Mesa isn't yet hitting the ball with any authority -- only one of his 18 hits, a double, has gone for extra bases -- he hasn't appeared completely overmatched, posting a reasonable 3:10 BB:K. He missed most of camp in March with a hamstring injury, so consider this first month his spring training. He remains Miami's top fantasy prospect and should heat up over the summer.

  • Marlins' Victor Victor Mesa: Opening at High-A

    Mesa is opening the year at High-A Jupiter, Sam Dykstra of MiLB.com reports.

    He dealt with a minor hamstring strain in camp, but is expected to be ready for the start of the season. The expectation was that Mesa would be assigned to either High-A or Double-A, and the Marlins will elect to give him a more conservative assignment, albeit to the pitcher-friendly Florida State League.

  • Marlins' Victor Victor Mesa: Progressing well in recovery

    Mesa (hamstring) might be ready for the start of the minor-league season, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

    Mesa is progressing well in his recovery from a Grade 1 right hamstring strain, and it sounds like he could be ready for game action when High-A Jupiter starts up play April 4. If Mesa isn't ready to join the Hammerheads at the start of the season, the 22-year-old will stay back at extended spring training to get up to speed.

  • Marlins' Victor Victor Mesa: Hamstring strain considered minor

    Mesa was diagnosed Tuesday with a Grade 1 right hamstring strain after undergoing an MRI, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

    It's good news for Mesa, as Grade 1 strains are the least severe and typically carry recovery timetables of around 1-to-2 weeks. Mesa had been a member of the Marlins' big-league camp, but he'll be assigned to the minor-league ranks to complete his rehab. The 22-year-old isn't a serious candidate to crack the Opening Day roster, so the Marlins may just elect to keep him at minor-league camp rather than using him in Grapefruit League games once he's shaken off the hamstring issue.

  • Marlins' Victor Victor Mesa: Suffers hamstring strain

    Mesa strained his right hamstring in Sunday's spring training game against the Pirates, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

    The strain appears to be a relatively minor one, as he's considered day-to-day. He'll be examined by team doctors Monday, at which point a clearer picture of his recovery timeline should emerge.
