Stars will have Erick Mejía and receiver Tromp available from Monday

The Stars will have versatile player Erick Mejía and receiver Chadwick Tromp available on their roster starting next Monday, reported their general manager, Felíx Peguero, through a club press release.

Mejía played until recently with the branch team of the Seattle Mariners in AAA (Tacoma). Tromp did the same with the AAA Atlanta Braves (Gwinnett).

This year, in AAA, Mejía was awarded as the Most Valuable Player of the Tacoma team, for which he hit .261, with 15 home runs and 58 RBIs. He stole 19 bases and scored 72 runs. His on-base percentage was .330, with a .433 slugging percentage.

The experienced switch-hitter had the same batting average left and right (.261). Of his home runs, 11 went to the left and four of them to the right.

On defense, Mejía appeared in 63 games at third base, 19 in left field, 18 in shortstop, 10 in right field, eight at second base.

The current season will be his first with the Stars. He was acquired from the Tigres del Licey in exchange for catcher Francisco Mejía, in the recent offseason of local baseball.

In the Dominican League, the 27-year-old player has performed in 6 seasons: two complete ones with the Águilas Cibaeñas (his original team), three with the Tigres and one shared between both teams (2018-2019).

Mejía has had major league experience with the Kansas City Royals (2019 and 2020).

Tromp, who arrived in the country on Wednesday of this week, is a 27-year-old catcher who hits right-handed. This year he performed in a game with the Atlanta Braves. Before he was in 24 games with the San Francisco Giants (2020) and in 9 games in the 2021 season, with that last club, in the Major Leagues.

This year, in Triple A, with the branch team of the Braves (Gwinnett) he saw action in 70 games and exhausted 249 at-bats. He hit .253, with 12 home runs and 41 RBIs.

The Stars originally signed wide receiver Luis Campusano as one of their imported players. However, he has not been able to play with the team, because he is participating in the Major League postseason with the San Diego Padres.

Starting Monday, along with Mejía and Tromp, the Stars will also have relievers Rafael Dolis and Ronel Blanco available on their roster.
