Angels' Alex Meyer: MRI results encouraging
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

An MRI on Meyer's shoulder reportedly brought back promising results, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

The exact findings hasn't been revealed, although the team is apparently fairly confident that Meyer will be able to return to the rotation soon. However, it is good to be somewhat cautious in this instance given his history of shoulder injuries, so expectations should be tempered until a firm timetable for his return is released.

Angels' Alex Meyer: Lands on DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyer was placed on the 10-day disabled list Monday with right shoulder inflammation.

It's unfortunate timing for this injury to arise, as Meyer looked completely healthy and dominant during his start against the Nationals on Wednesday in which he tossed seven scoreless innings of work. The 27-year-old has a history of shoulder ailments so this sudden trip to the disabled list is a bit concerning. At this point there's been no word on his timeline for return, but the righty will miss at least one start at the minimum.

Angels' Alex Meyer: Dominates Nats on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyer (4-5) fired seven scoreless innings in Wednesday's 7-0 win over the Nationals, allowing just a single hit -- a sixth-inning double by Brian Goodwin -- and a walk while striking out seven.

It was some sweet revenge for Meyer, who was drafted in the first round by the Nats back in 2011 before heading to the Twins in the Wilson Ramos deal a year later. The right-hander has now shut down two dangerous offenses in his last three big-league starts, also one-hitting the Dodgers over six shutout innings back on June 28, and while his control remains erratic Meyer is beginning to justify that draft pedigree. He'll take the mound again next Wednesday in Cleveland.

Angels' Alex Meyer: Recalled prior to Wednesday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyer was called up from Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday.

Meyer will take the mound against the Nationals on Wednesday, marking his first start at the big-league level since July 3, when he took the loss against Minnesota. During 12 starts with the Angels this year, Meyer has posted a 4.18 ERA with a 1.46 WHIP and a 68:41 K:BB. The team demoted Eduardo Paredes to Salt Lake in a corresponding move.

Angels' Alex Meyer: Slated to start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meyer will be recalled to start Wednesday against the Nationals, Maria Guardado of MLB.com reports.

The 27-year-old will return for his 13th major-league start of the season, presumably pushing Ricky Nolasco back to Friday. Meyer can miss bats at a good clip with his mid-90s heat, but he's mostly struggled at the highest level over the past two seasons, with the free passes being his Achilles' heel (6.1 BB/9 this year).
