Perfect Game Profile

Melendez, the son of former Alabama State and current Florida International Head Coach Mervyl Melendez, Sr., plays with the headiness and advanced feel for the game that one would expect from the son of a D-I coach. He's highly athletic and quick-twitch behind the plate with plus defensive projection to go along with big-time arm strength, and he absolutely shuts down opposing running games with his defensive prowess. He also continues to make strides with his bat, showing continued power progression and feel for the barrel looking like a future two-way threat from behind the plate.
