Re: 2008 Player Draft Scouting and Info 1-25
This is who I want......... I went to high school here, so I'm a bit biased...
33. Alex Meyer rhp Greensburg (Ind.) HS 6-7 200 ltr to UKy #5 prospect in
all of HS At 6-foot-7, Meyer brings a unique appearance to the mound, and he generates velocity and plane on his pitches thanks to the leverage of his delivery and his plus arm strength. He has been up to 95 mph with his fastball, and his two-plane curveball grades as a legitimate plus offering. Meyer was dominant in a two-inning stint at Perfect Game's National Showcase in Cincinnati, and was ranked by Baseball America's Prospects Plus as the No. 2 prospect in attendance, behind only fellow-West righthander Tim Melville. He also pitched well at the World Wood Bat Association 17-and-under summer championship with the Indiana Bulls travel team, and ranked among the top prospects at that event
