The biggest plot hole in this episode wasn't Mendez, it was how everyone forgot about Morse code and didn't think of getting Pike to communicate that way.
From Menagerie:
MCCOY: We've learned to tie into every human organ in the body except one. The brain.
Except that McCoy's able to quickly rig a remote control for Spock just 2 years later in Spock's Brain.

Morse Code. Or the computer system Hawking uses. Granted, Hawking's tech wasn't available in the 60s, but Morse Code was. Johnny Got His Gun, anyone?

Yeah, that gets my vote for biggest plot hole or oversight.
Well, it was Pike's body that was deteriorated, not his mind (according to the script), basically the opposite of Spock in "Spock's Brain".
