Alex Meyer
Los Angeles Angels


58.0% Thrown  95.2 MPH

The velocity is there for Meyer to excel with his heater, the only problem is he simply can't command it like he needs to. While featuring a solid 54.6% zone rate, he simply can't throw it for a strike when he wants to (22.9% walk rate!), nor can he spot the corners like he needs to (.308 allowed ISO). There's a chance Meyer breaks out as a starter but it hinges solely on locating his Fastball.


31.3% Thrown  84.3 MPH

If you're looking for Meyer's strikeout pitch, look no further. This deuce registered a crazy high 53.5% strikeout rate in 2016, as it allowed a contact rate of just 59.7%.


10.7% Thrown  89.7 MPH

Every starter needs a proper third offering and Meyer is looking to his Changeup to fill the void. He only threw 51 last season, though a 45.1% zone rate is encouraging for a pitcher that struggles to limit the walks while keeping batters off his heater.
