At this point, you still have to be holding out hope that the 25-year-old bursts onto the scene to start the 2015 season. Entering what will be an open competition for the fifth and final rotation spot, it would be fair to argue Meyer is the second leading candidate.
Having struggled with command last year down the stretch, it was an injury that led to him getting passed over for a promotion. Competing with Tommy Milone and a couple of others for the rotation, it’s Meyer who possess the highest upside. He’s a strikeout pitcher that could end up being a top-tier starter, and while he may start in Triple-A, there’s no doubt he’ll be in the major league rotation at some point around June.
