YearComment
2013 As high-risk as they come, Fabio Martinez Mesa has been an absolute mess of injuries, mechanical issues, and awful command since 2010, when he showed a lot of potential.
2012 "Great stuff, but wild" became "great stuff, but wild, with mysterious shoulder injury" for Fabio Martinez Mesa. Angels never did have an expected return date for him. Mysterious.
2011 Before last season, Mesa had yet to put his enticing repertoire to the test in a full-season league. That changed in 2010, as the righty took his act to Cedar Rapids, where he showcased the same tantalizing package of unpolished promise that already had scouts talking. Mesa’s 12.3 strikeouts per nine paced the Midwest League, but his walk rate showed no sign of improvement, ranking third-worst in the circuit. Like many a young flamethrower, Mesa doesn’t always know where his pitches are going, which—given the fact that his fastball touches 97—must be as unsettling for opposing batters as it is for him. Armed with a plus slider and a developing changeup, he has the secondary stuff to succeed. Further development time may allow him to repeat his smooth delivery more often, removing his most glaring impediment to stardom.
2010 After impressing in the Dominican Summer League in 2008, Fabio Martinez Mesa dominated stateside thanks to his mid-90s fastball and plus-plus slider, leading the Arizona League in strikeouts. Scouts like his projectable frame and the potential for his changeup to be a plus pitch as well.

2010-08-20 15:30:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Fabio Martinez Mesa - is he a MLB starter even if his control does not progress much, and a 1/2 if it does? Also, any word on his health?
(Fonzarelli from Milwaukee)
That's really an open question. You have to keep him starting for as long as possible, but some scouts do project him purely as a reliever. (Kevin Goldstein)
