      Twins RP Alex Meyer struggling in Triple-A

      Since being sent back down to Triple-A following a two-game stint in the Major Leagues, Twins right-hander Alex Meyer has had some struggles pitching out of the bullpen for Rochester. In the four games since his return to the Red Wings, Meyer owns a 7.11 ERA through 12 1/3 innings of work. The Twin's top pitching prospect has struggled pretty much all season, as his 5.31 ERA in the minors would attest to.

      Twins' Molitor discusses battle for final rotation spot

      Twins manager Paul Molitor is facing a tough decision with a healthy battle underway for the team's fifth-starter role between Mike Pelfrey, Tommy Milone, Alex Meyer and Trevor May, reports. "We hope it's tough because people are performing well," Molitor said. "Mike has had a good spring to this point and is scheduled to pitch again in Clearwater, Fla., [against Philadelphia] on the 23rd. And Milone has looked good and we'll see him [Saturday]. Meyer is a little behind on pitch count but has been fine, and May seems like he has a little more mound presence so far than he did last year. That's probably what that experience did to him." Pelfrey and Milone remain the top two candidates for the job, with Meyer and May having options remaining that can allow them to open the season at Triple-A. Pelfrey was impressive in a split-squad start Wednesday. "Mostly, his fastball is getting the groundballs he needs, but he's using his split-finger more and gaining confidence with that pitch, and mixing in his curveball, which he hasn't done for a while," Molitor said. "His pace was pretty good, and we're always looking for those little things like pace and holding runners, and he knows that's important."

      Twins P Alex Meyer walks four in 4-2 loss to Rays

      Twins right-hander Alex Meyer walked four batters in two innings of work during Minnesota's 4-2 loss to the Rays on Thursday. Three of the walks occurred in the sixth inning, with the fourth in the seventh. He gave up one earned run and one hit. He also struck out three batters. However, the walks indicate a lack of control on the mound, something that could hurt Meyer as he tries to earn a spot on the Twins' roster. "I'm searching right now," Meyer said, via the Pioneer Press. "I feel like there's something mechanically going on." Meyer has now walked seven batters this spring but still holds a 1.59 ERA. "I just have to get back to square one, stop overanalyzing things and just throw the baseball," Meyer said. "Quit worrying about leaking early, pulling with the glove. It's just getting back to the basics. The good thing is it's spring training. It's not the season. You've got plenty of time to figure it out."
