by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Twins calling up top-100 prospect Alex Meyer
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Twins announced Thursday they will recall pitcher Alex Meyer from Triple-A Rochester prior to Friday's game at Milwaukee. 

Meyer was converted to a reliever in late May after struggling as a starter to begin the season. The right-hander, who is considered a top-100 prospect by MLB.com (No. 29) and Baseball America (No. 62), has thrived since moving to a relief role. He's allowed just one earned run in 17 relief innings (0.53 ERA).

The right-hander is considered a top-100 prospect by MLB.com (No. 29) and Baseball America (No. 62).

Twins GM not overly concerned with Alex Meyer's slow start
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Despites the recent struggles of Twins pitching prospect Alex Meyer , general manager Terry Ryan is not overly concerned, reports TwinCities.com.

"He’s just not throwing it over the plate," Ryan said. "It’s a little bit of what was going on in spring training. We’ve got to clean that up. We’ve got to get him to throw it over and trust his stuff is all."

Through two starts and 8 2/3 innings, Meyer has walked 11 and posted an 8.31 earned run average for Triple-A Rochester.

Meyer lost a battle in spring training for the Twins' final rotation spot.

Twins' Alex Meyer owns a 8.31 ERA through two Triple-A starts
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Twins starter Alex Meyer, who lost a battle for the final rotation spot in spring training, is off to another slow start, carrying a 8.31 ERA through two starts at Triple-A Rochester, per the Star Tribune.

Meyer, considered the club's top pitching prospect, permitted five earned runs on seven hits and five walks while striking out five over 3 2/3 innings on Wednesday. He has issued 11 walks in 8 2/3 innings pitched to start the year.

"I think he's just a little out of sync right now," director of minor league operations Brad Steil said. "… He had a few games like this last year, so he'll be all right."
