Alex Meyer

School: Greensburg HS (Indiana)

Class: HS Senior

Height: 6’7″

Weight: 200 lbs.

Bats: Right

Throws: Right

Pos: rhp

Hometown: Greensburg, IN

Commitment: Kentucky

Previously Drafted: None

Strengths:
Meyer is the ultimate projectable high school pitcher. Standing 6-foot-7, Meyer delivers a 92 mph fastball with heavy life and pairs it with a high 70s slider. He’s only 200 lbs, so scouts figure that Meyer might gain 20 lbs and pump his fastball into the mid 90s.

Weaknesses:
All high school pitchers are risky, but Meyer carries more risk than most.  Tall pitchers have trouble repeating their mechanics.  Additionally, Meyer’s present stuff projects his as a back of the rotation pitcher.  The team that signs him is betting that he’ll get a lot better.

The Future:
#10-20 picks overall.
