Former Arizona Wildcats third baseman Seth Mejias-Brean made his minor-league debut on Thursday night with the Billings Mustangs.
He batted seventh and went 0-for-3 with a walk for the Mustangs, a rookie-ball affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds, who selected Mejias-Brean in the eighth round of last month’s draft.
Shortstop Alex Mejia, who was the first of five Wildcats to be selected in the draft, signed with the St. Louis Cardinals and has been assigned to the Batavia Muckdogs of the New York-Penn League. Mejia, who won Pac-12 Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year honors, was a fourth-round pick.
Undrafted outfielder Bobby Brown signed with the Kansas City Royals organization and assigned to Burlington in rookie ball.
