Slow start for Meyer at Triple-A
Former University of Kentucky standout Alex Meyer, one of the top pitching prospects in the minors, has started the season with an 8.31 ERA through two starts for Triple-A Rochester. He has walked 11 in 82⁄3 innings.
Minnesota GM Terry Ryan told the Pioneer Press that the team has no injury concerns with Meyer.
"He's just not throwing it over the plate," Ryan said. "We've got to clean that up. We've got to get him to throw it over and trust his stuff is all."
Meyer's next start is scheduled for Monday at home against Syracuse.
"I think it's a confidence issue myself," Ryan told the Pioneer Press about Meyer. "I don't think it's mechanical. He's throwing similar to what we've seen when he did throw it over the plate."
