Kentucky baseball's Meyer commands attention in what could be his final start at home

When Alex Meyer steps to the mound Friday night to face Georgia, he probably will be making his final career home appearance for the Kentucky Wildcats. The 6-foot-9, 220-pound right-hander is a junior, making him draft-eligible for the first time since graduating from high school. Committed to play for UK, Meyer nevertheless had his name called in the 20th round of the 2008 draft. The Boston Red Sox took a shot, hoping to lure him with a reported offer of $2.2 million.
