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.

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.
