2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

The 2011 first-round pick can certainly look the part of a future ace, hitting the high-90s with his fastball, flashing a plus slider and showing improvement with his changeup since he left college. His mechanics are still all over the place, which is no surprise for a kid who is 6-foot-9. Until he develops some consistency with his delivery, it is hard to even project him as a useful bullpen arm in the majors. He is a high-risk, high-reward type, and while an offseason trade to the Twins gives him a clearer path to the majors than he had in Washington, Meyer is not someone you should count on to make a quick impact. He'll likely begin the season at Double-A New Britain and could figure into Minnesota's plans in 2014.

2012

Meyer was a first-round pick (23rd overall) in 2011 for the Nationals. At 6-foot-9, he has a lot of moving parts to his delivery, but he features a fastball that clocks in routinely from 93-96 mph and some scouts have seen him top out at 99 mph. He also features a strong slider (84-87 mph), and change-up that is a work in progress. Command continues to be a problem, but there is no doubt that Meyer has front of the rotation kind of stuff if he can limit the free passes.
