Alex Meyer isn't even on the Twins 40-man roster but I am picking him out as the last man in this series. He has done some great things at Triple-A to start the year and the Twins starting pitching has shown some holes. This could open up the opportunity for the Twins top pitching prospect to get a call-up in the next couple months.
2013 Recap: 2.99 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, 100 SO, 32 BB (78.1 IP)
Forecasting 2014: 3.65 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, 81 SO, 28 BB (70.0 IP)
There is a good chance that Meyer won't be appearing at Target Field until after the beginning of June. This still doesn't take away of the mark he could make in his rookie campaign. He has the potential to be the Twins ace for the foreseeable future especially since a lot of the best pitching prospects in the organization are much younger. Minnesota has been waiting for a top flight pitcher since Johan Santana left the organization many moons ago. Meyer is off to a fast start at Triple-A and he has started to use a new change-up. This switch in his off-speed pitch has produced some positive results and the club will watch him closely in the months to come. If he can show some consistency on the mound, he could be at Target Field sooner rather than later.
