Meyer (shoulder) announced his retirement, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports. The No. 23 overall pick by the Twins in 2011, Meyer flashed significant upside at many times as a pro, but arm injuries limited him to just 95.1 innings in the majors. His final pro start was seven innings of one-hit ball against the Nationals on July 19, 2017.
Meyer revealed Wednesday that he required arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder in November, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Meyer was sidelined for the entire 2018 campaign after requiring surgery in September 2017 to repair the labrum in his same shoulder. It was expected that he would have a relatively normal offseason before returning to camp this spring at close to full strength, but the fact that he experienced a setback that required a follow-up procedure now muddles his outlook for 2019. While the scope won't necessitate as long of a recovery timeline as the surgery he needed to repair his labrum, Meyer has yet to resume a throwing program and looks like a good bet to open the season on the injured list at Triple-A Salt Lake.
Meyer (shoulder) inked a minor-league contract with Los Angeles on Sunday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports. Meyer was released by the Angels at the end of November, but his free agency didn't last long, as he latched on once again with Los Angeles. The health of his shoulder remains in question, but if he does manage to get healthy for the 2019 campaign, he should start the year at Triple-A Salt Lake.
Meyer (shoulder) was granted his unconditional release by the Angels on Monday. Meyer will hit the open market after a shoulder injury kept the 28-year-old from pitching competitively in 2018. He most recently pitched in the majors with the Angels in 2017, posting a 3.74 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 10.0 K/9 across 13 starts (67.1 innings).
Meyer (shoulder) was designated for assignment by the Angels on Wednesday. Meyer was cast off the 40-man roster in order to make room for the recently-acquired Dillon Peters, who was traded Wednesday from Miami in exchange for Tyler Stevens. Looking ahead, Meyer's status for spring training remains uncertain after he suffered another setback in early November. The 28-year-old has yet to be cleared to resume throwing, though he's expected to start back up near mid-December if everything goes according to plan.
