RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Brad Meyers.
Meyers spent most of 2011 with Syracuse, but he did make six starts in Double-A and two starts in the New York-Penn League. He possesses fantastic command (0.97 BB/9IP in 2011) and has a 7.50 K/9IP for his career. His fastball usually averages about 91 mph, and he features that with a slider, change-up and new added cutter. His BABIP over .343 in Triple-A did not affect his overall ERA because of his ability to limit home runs with only 26 allowed in his professional career. The Nationals left him unprotected in the Rule 5 draft, so Meyers' first taste of the big leagues could come out of the Yankees bullpen if he impresses during spring training.
The 2007 fifth-round pick started to figure things out last season, following up a 3.1 K/BB ratio at High-A with a 3.9 mark in nine Double-A starts. He also did a great job of keeping the ball in the yard, allowing just three home runs in 136.1 innings, and that's a profile that will endear him to the Nationals' front office. He doesn't have great stuff, but if he keeps the ball down and around the strike zone, the Nats will find a use for him down the road. Expect him to spend a full season in the high minors before getting any kind of crack at the majors though.
