^Might as well pair Mejia and Hedges if Mejia+Alfaro was your plan, going with the SD duo guarantees you 600 at bats and 162 games from your catching. 

There's also something to be sadi about the annoycance of checking every night who is starting, in addition to wasting a roster spot for a part time weak hitter. This strategy always sounds nice in th

Sitting for a 2nd straight day.  This could be what it looks like going forward.  Closer to a split in PT than a clear #1 & #2 catcher rotation.  He will need to hit to really separate himself I think.  Here's hoping he does.

He is really hot right now. Since July 1, he's hitting .345-11-4-10-1 in 87 AB. He doesn't walk a lot, but he's only struck out 16 times in his 91 PAs since July 1.

This kid is a legit hitter. Hedges is a good defensive catcher, but Franky Mejia is lightyears ahead of him with the bat. So I bet he plays. If this were 1984 where stolen bases actually mattered maybe not.

He actually has a great arm (70 tool) , he does lack in receiving skills but that can be taught.

I think there is all kinds of potential in this kid, but right now Hedges is an excellent defensive catcher. He's such a bad hitter the Pads have to find a way to develop Mejia, who I think the world of because as you said some of his skills can be developed. But at the same time that's not a guarantee either. Either way Mejia will be in a MLB lineup pretty consistently for the next decade in some form or fashion.
