Meet A Prospect : Jose Mesa Jr

The New York Yankees used their 24th round pick on Jose Mesa Jr. Jose Mesa is only being mentioned here not because of his 6'4" 220 lb frame or because of his high school career at Flanagan High School but because his father is former major league closer Jose Mesa. Jose Mesa JR signed a deal that is expected to be above slot but the details have not been released. 

Jose Mesa has a fastball that tops out at 94 MPH with a curveball, slider, and a changeup. He relies on the fastball a little too much but that is to be expected out of a young pitcher. Mesa also plays 1B and 3B and has a power swing and power approach with a good glove in the field.
