Fortunate sign: Mena hasn’t pitched a pro inning, but his future seems as promising as any. (@BenBadler)
Right-Handed Starting Pitcher
SSHP rank among all right-handed starting pitchers in the system: 13
Mena, who didn’t even turn 17 until December, could be next year’s right-handed version of Ronaldo Guzman for the DSL White Sox. Mena didn’t pitch for the DSL Sox this year, but should join the rotation in 2020. He struck out six of the 11 batters he faced at the Mejia Top 10 Showcase in Las Vegas, and threw 86-88 mph at the event with a devastating curveball, according to Ben Badler of Baseball America.
