2/24/17- Melendez drove a home run to right field showing the pull side power that has continued to improve. He continues to show advanced actions behind the plate. Still has some length in the catch to release, but the transfer is extremely quick and has a very strong arm. Has a chance to be a day one pick come June.
10/23/16- Florida International recruit. He has advanced defensive tools, including a plus arm. His hands work and are consistently in better and better positions. He still needs to improve on the blocking skills, but shows enough athleticism to do so. He also showed his continued improvement offensively. Staying short and direct to the ball more consistently as well as showing power again with an opposite field home run. As he uses his athleticism and continues to improve, so should his draft stock.
09/01/16 - Made USA 18U National Team.
06/28/16- Moved from Alabama to Florida when his dad (Mervyl Melendez) took the job at Florida International University. M.J. is now committed to FIU.
05/28/16- 6-foot-1, 180-pound frame. Melendez is one of the most impressive defensive catchers in the country. Showed flexibility behind the plate, advanced receiving skills and a very strong arm with a quick, clean transfer. Flashed a 1.89 pop time in game action. Left-handed hitter, very quick hands with some present power and a balanced approach.
