Arguably the first prospect of the list to make his debut in 2015, there is very little for Alex Meyer left to do down on the farm. If it hadn’t been for some late season injury issues, he very likely would have seen his call up come last September. A strikeout pitcher with front of the rotation potential, the last key for Meyer will be to continue to perfect his command.
He has started to develop a strong third pitch, and if he can pound the strike zone more often, his effectiveness will only continue to grow. With his tall frame and strong arm, he should be a strikeout threat for the Twins rotation. Whether or not he beats out Tommy Milone for the 5th starter spot out of Spring Training is yet to be seen, but Meyer should debut sometime around June of 2015.
