I see Alex Meyer starting for the Angels tomorrow.  I hope he fares well.  Not great AAA numbers at first glance, but FIP and K/BB ratio trending in the right direction.

Interesting. Spot start, as the Angels want to give their starters each an extra day of rest.

But obviously not their bullpen.

I actually thought about adopting Meyer and Hu in adopt a prospect. Then I realized I was too lazy....but a thread of "who they let go" the last 4 year or so might be interesting. OTOH, it might just be a bunch of whining, another reason I didn't.

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

More of the same from Meyer. Mostly cruised through 2 innings then got in trouble with 2 walks and a wild pitch in the third, leading to 2 runs, and 2 more walks in the fourth. But luckily a reliever stranded the bases loaded!

3.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 5 BB, 3 K

I'd guess he is headed back to AAA after this spot start.
