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."
