Alex Meyer has success with new grip on changeup
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Twins starting pitcher prospect Alex Meyer tied a career high with 11 strikeouts Wednesday during a no-decision for Triple-A Rochester. He allowed three hits and three walks in 6 2/3 scoreless innings.

Meyer attributed his success Wednesday to a new grip on his changeup. Instead of throwing a circle changeup, Meyer threw a three-finger changeup. Rochester catcher Dan Rohlfing has urged Meyer to throw his changeup more often.

"It was something I had been working on, and he made me feel confident in it," Meyer said of the pitch, per MLB.com. "I was getting pretty good sink on it. It was moving a little bit. It was coming out of my hand well. I can throw it at full arm speed. I don't have to slow things down. It had a little run and sink to it, and it was easier for me to command than the circle change was."

Meyer has a 3.48 ERA and .236 opponents' batting average through four starts. He has 24 strikeouts to eight walks in 20 2/3 innings.

Alex Meyer close to MLB debut?
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Twins starting pitcher prospect Alex Meyer is expected to open the season at Triple-A Rochester, but manager Ron Gardenhire is eager to see this spring how close the highly touted pitching prospect is to the majors.

"Whether he's ready for this or not, he'll tell us," Gardenhire said, per MLB.com. "I don't want any player coming into spring training thinking they don't have a chance. But he's a long shot just because he didn't pitch a lot of innings last year, and we want to make sure we do the right thing. But he has a definite chance sometime throughout the year to pitch [in the majors]."

Meyer's goal is to pitch in the majors this season.

"I'd love to," Meyer said of potentially making his debut this season. "That's obviously the goal. If I just go out there and do my job and get guys out, and get myself in that position, that's all I can do. I try not to think about it too much or put too much pressure on myself. I just want to get guys out."
