Twins' Alex Meyer willing to pitch out of the bullpen

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/25/15) Twins reliever Alex Meyer is willing to pitch out of the bullpen, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press

The 25-year-old Meyer is considered one of the team's better prospects, and started 27 games last season at Triple-A. Meyer posted a 3.52 ERA over 130 1/3 innings. While Meyer could compete for a rotation spot during spring training, he said he would be open to pitching out of the bullpen if that will put him in the majors faster. "Whatever it takes to help the Minnesota Twins," Meyer said. "If it’s me being a left-on-left guy, I really don’t care."

As long as he stays healthy, Meyer is expected to make his major-league debut at some point in 2015.

Sano, Meyer, Rosario added to Twins' 40-man roster

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/20/14) The Twins announced Thursday they added starting pitcher Alex Meyer, pitcher Jason Wheeler, outfielder Eddie Rosario and third baseman Miguel Sano to the 40-man roster.

Alex Meyer dealing with late-season shoulder injury

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/31/14) Twins starting pitcher prospect Alex Meyer was placed on the disabled list at Triple-A Rochester due to shoulder inflammation, according to the Democrat & Chronicle.

Meyer is 7-7 with a 3.52 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 27 starts for Rochester. He is striking out 10.6 batters per nine innings, but is also walking 4.4 batters per nine innings.

Alex Meyer continues to bounce back

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/29/14) Twins pitching prospect Alex Meyer has continued to bounce back after a rough stretch.

Meyer has now just two earned runs over his last three starts. Prior to this stretch, Meyer had given up nine runs over two starts. Meyer tossed six innings Wednesday, striking out eight and walked three. He gave up three hits. Meyer has posted a 3.31 ERA in 10 games. 

Alex Meyer has success with new grip on changeup

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/24/14) Twins starting pitcher prospect Alex Meyer tied a career high with 11 strikeouts Wednesday during a no-decision for Triple-A Rochester. He allowed three hits and three walks in 6 2/3 scoreless innings.

Meyer attributed his success Wednesday to a new grip on his changeup. Instead of throwing a circle changeup, Meyer threw a three-finger changeup. Rochester catcher Dan Rohlfing has urged Meyer to throw his changeup more often.

"It was something I had been working on, and he made me feel confident in it," Meyer said of the pitch, per MLB.com. "I was getting pretty good sink on it. It was moving a little bit. It was coming out of my hand well. I can throw it at full arm speed. I don't have to slow things down. It had a little run and sink to it, and it was easier for me to command than the circle change was."

Meyer has a 3.48 ERA and .236 opponents' batting average through four starts. He has 24 strikeouts to eight walks in 20 2/3 innings.
