Alex Meyer steps away from Twins to attend grandfather's funeral

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/25/15) Twins starting pitcher prospect Alex Meyer will take a brief leave of absence to attend his grandfather's funeral, according to MLB.com on Wednesday. Meyer, who remains hopeful of winning a rotation spot with the Twins now that he's more comfortable using his changeup, is expected to miss two workouts while he's away from the club.

Meyer will compete with Tommy Milone, Mike Pelfrey and Trevor May for the fifth spot in the rotation this spring. If he fails to win a spot in the rotation, he could break camp in the bullpen.

Changeup could be pitch Twins' Meyer needs to win rotation spot

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/24/15) Twins starting pitcher prospect Alex Meyer was reluctant to throw a changeup before working with teammates Yohan Pino and Deolis Guerra at Triple-A Rochester last season. Meyer switched from a circle-change to a three-finger changeup, and he is now much more comfortable throwing a changeup.

Meyer already had a plus fastball and curveball, and now the changeup could give him the third pitch that propels him into the major-league rotation.

"When I had games last year where I was able to use it, it was such a benefit," Meyer said. "It gets in the back of their mind and makes my fastball and my curveball so much better. So it's something I need to be consistent with. So even on days when I don't have my curveball, I can still have my changeup."

Meyer will compete with Tommy Milone, Mike Pelfrey and Trevor May for the fifth spot in the rotation this spring. He could end up in the bullpen, if he doesn't land a spot in the rotation.

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.

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.
