First drafted by the Red Sox way back in 2008, righthander Alex Meyer passed on an alleged $2M signing bonus to go attend U Kentucky, in order to reenter the draft in 2011. Now a mature prospect, the righthander is an intimidating pitcher with a big fastball who's ready to contribute in the Bigs. While being groomed for a relief role by the Twins, he was acquired in mid-2016 by the Angels with the intent to keep him firmly in the rotation. He lacks that phenom lustre, but he's got solid upside.
