Twins GM not overly concerned with Alex Meyer's slow start

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/18/15) Despites the recent struggles of Twins pitching prospect Alex Meyer , general manager Terry Ryan is not overly concerned, reports TwinCities.com.

"He’s just not throwing it over the plate," Ryan said. "It’s a little bit of what was going on in spring training. We’ve got to clean that up. We’ve got to get him to throw it over and trust his stuff is all."

Through two starts and 8 2/3 innings, Meyer has walked 11 and posted an 8.31 earned run average for Triple-A Rochester.

Meyer lost a battle in spring training for the Twins' final rotation spot.

Twins' Alex Meyer owns a 8.31 ERA through two Triple-A starts

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/16/15) Twins starter Alex Meyer, who lost a battle for the final rotation spot in spring training, is off to another slow start, carrying a 8.31 ERA through two starts at Triple-A Rochester, per the Star Tribune.

Meyer, considered the club's top pitching prospect, permitted five earned runs on seven hits and five walks while striking out five over 3 2/3 innings on Wednesday. He has issued 11 walks in 8 2/3 innings pitched to start the year.

"I think he's just a little out of sync right now," director of minor league operations Brad Steil said. "… He had a few games like this last year, so he'll be all right."

Twins option SP Alex Meyer to Triple-A

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(3/20/15) Twins starter Alex Meyer, who was in a battle for the final rotation spot, was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Friday, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

In his last outing, Thursday against the Rays, Meyer walked four batters in two innings and said he was "searching" to find the right mechanics. 

Twins' Molitor discusses battle for final rotation spot

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/19/15) Twins manager Paul Molitor is facing a tough decision with a healthy battle underway for the team's fifth-starter role between Mike Pelfrey, Tommy Milone, Alex Meyer and Trevor May, MLB.com reports.

"We hope it's tough because people are performing well," Molitor said. "Mike has had a good spring to this point and is scheduled to pitch again in Clearwater, Fla., [against Philadelphia] on the 23rd. And Milone has looked good and we'll see him [Saturday]. Meyer is a little behind on pitch count but has been fine, and May seems like he has a little more mound presence so far than he did last year. That's probably what that experience did to him."

Pelfrey and Milone remain the top two candidates for the job, with Meyer and May having options remaining that can allow them to open the season at Triple-A. Pelfrey was impressive in a split-squad start Wednesday.

"Mostly, his fastball is getting the groundballs he needs, but he's using his split-finger more and gaining confidence with that pitch, and mixing in his curveball, which he hasn't done for a while," Molitor said. "His pace was pretty good, and we're always looking for those little things like pace and holding runners, and he knows that's important."

Twins P Alex Meyer walks four in 4-2 loss to Rays

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/19/15) Twins right-hander Alex Meyer walked four batters in two innings of work during Minnesota's 4-2 loss to the Rays on Thursday. 

Three of the walks occurred in the sixth inning, with the fourth in the seventh. He gave up one earned run and one hit. He also struck out three batters. 

However, the walks indicate a lack of control on the mound, something that could hurt Meyer as he tries to earn a spot on the Twins' roster. 

“I’m searching right now,” Meyer said, via the Pioneer Press. “I feel like there’s something mechanically going on.”

Meyer has now walked seven batters this spring but still holds a 1.59 ERA. 

“I just have to get back to square one, stop overanalyzing things and just throw the baseball,” Meyer said. “Quit worrying about leaking early, pulling with the glove. It’s just getting back to the basics. The good thing is it’s spring training. It’s not the season. You’ve got plenty of time to figure it out.”
