#10 RHP- Alex Meyer
Rounding out the top ten list for right-handed pitching prospects is 25-year-old Alex Meyer. Dealing Denard Span to the Washington Nationals garnered Meyer in return for the Twins. He has been viewed as a top of the rotation quality arm, and someone the Twins should have right in the middle of their future plans.
At this point, Meyer appears destined to start the season in Rochester at the Triple-A level. While he has an outside chance to make the rotation over Tommy Milone, he probably isn’t the Twins first bullpen choice either. Owning a respectable 3.52 ERA in 2014, Meyer has everything going for him but his command. If he can limit walks, he should be at Target Field prior to the All-Star break.
