I’ll start by quoting Gondee: "With the Braves set at first base in the minors, he's not much of a loss. It would be interesting to see if the Royals can actually graduate any of our ex-prospects to the majors". Personally, I think we made a big mistake letting Mejia go. He had a breakout year in 2008, but an injury didn’t allow him to keep showing his potential. Freddie Freeman is not a sure thing, and I wouldn’t count on our 30 year old prospect, Barbaro Cañizares. (Mejia just turned 25) The Venezuelan winter league`s regular season is over. Here are some of Mejía’s numbers. And the rest of the Braves players that played in the this league. Ernesto Mejía had a 292 avg, with a 355 obp, a 557 slg, to go a long with 14 homers, 14 doubles, 41 runs batted in, in 212 at bats. Martin prado: 271, 286 obp, 3 doubles, 2 sb in 48 at bats. Barbaro canizares had a 286 avg, 295 obp, and 3 doubles in just 35 at bats. Gregor Blanco : 304 avg, 465 obp, 10 stolen bases in 168 at bats J.C Boscán 225, 255 obp, 3 home runs in 89 at bats. José Ortegano had a 4.12 era, 3 wins, 1 loss, 24/13 k/bb in 43.2 innings. By the way, Ortegano just pitched six innings (in the semi finals).Allowing one run, and striking out 3. He looks really good as a starter here in Venezuela.
