The rosters have been revealed for the 2017 Futures Game to be played on July 9 at Marlins Park, home of the Miami Marlins. Every Major League team has at least one player on either the US or World roster and some teams have more than one. In this post I'll be going over the catchers on the World team.

He hit 69 for 201, .343/.387/.577 with 9 HR, 32 RBI, 35 R, 5 SB in 52 games. He originally signed with the Indians in 2012 as an amateur free agent. Mejia was born in Bani, Dominican Republic and turned 21 on October 27. He was also on the 2016 team.
