For once, I really hope this is nothing.

Now's the time to go on record saying you think he needs surgery and not rest.

I hope it's not surgery. Shoulder pain could be something like a labrum tear... those are worse that TJ to return from.

Like, bi-lateral shoulder weakness? Or bi-lateral labrum tear? There is a difference, lets hope the former.

I saw this article the other day and was pretty fascinated - trevor bauer's pitching guru is claiming he can increase velocity while reducing/eliminating injuries. wonder if the twins have bought in to any of this.

Not sure but lets speculate...

Hope it's just Meyer needing some rest. It would be nothing short of absolutely devastating to lose one of the few arms in this organization with #1/2 stuff. At the end of the day it is impossible to have too many arms in your system. Get well soon Alex

If it's his non throwing shoulder it likely isn't a big deal but if it's his throwing side shoulder it has to cause some concern. How many times does a pitcher have a sore shoulder and it turns out to be nothing serious?

Tough not to be a little alarmed by any kind of shoulder soreness for a pitching prospect.

The TD medical staff would have operated and/or amputated yesterday.

Mlb.com is reporting that Meyer's MRI came back "clean." So, nothing serious, even though Meyer is still on the 7 day DL

Good news. Best to still be careful with him though. He's not a part of the Twins' present, but he's a big part of the Twins' future. Kid gloves, I say.
