Basically the same issues that plagued him in Minnesota:
He lacked control and command Thursday, falling behind early in counts, leading to either walks or hard contact off the bats of Seattle hitters. Meyer possesses a high-90s fastball and a big curveball, but he has abandoned his changeup completely, leaving the tall righty with a repertoire probably better suited for the bullpen.
With Skaggs and Richards out, it will be interesting to see if Meyer gets a long-term opportunity here, and what comes of it. The Angels are not brimming with options, but they are still in the contention mix.
