Scouting Report

2020

Draft-eligible for five straight years from high school to Monroe (N.Y.) CC to Massachusetts-Lowell, Mendick didn't get picked until he was a college senior and signed for $2,500 as a 22nd-rounder in 2015. His Draft pedigree meant he had to prove himself at every level, and that's what exactly what he has done while showing the ability to play above his tools. He had the best season of his pro career in Triple-A in 2019, earning a September callup during which he batted .308 with two homers in 16 games.

A right-handed hitter, Mendick makes consistent contact and uses the entire field. He has managed to add both patience and power in the past two seasons, developing the ability to drive mistakes to his pull side without selling out for homers like he would in the past. He's an average runner with good instincts who looks to steal bases when the opportunity presents itself.

Mendick's quickness and arm are both average, but he's a reliable and versatile defender with sure hands. He's best at second base and more fringy on the left side of the infield, where his arm is a bit stretched. He also saw action in left field last year, adding to his utility profile.
