That trade didn’t really work for anyone, Nats, Twins, or Angels did it?

Washington got a couple of productive years out of Span in return for Meyer.

Nope. Feel bad for the kid. Just seemed like he had all the potential in the world.

Also feel bad for the Twins, of course, because man it just seemed like he was going to be a top of the rotation SP for us.

And it seems he has absolutely killed us when we've faced him!

Wait...maybe we should alter some of our off season blueprints and get Span back in a Twins uniform. Even if it's not to face him!

I dunno, he’s getting up there, check out the gray... but 2018 was pretty solid for Span.

Alex Meyer had a torn labrum surgery last season and has had some recent setbacks.Thus the DFA.

 

Was a pretty darn special pitcher when healthy. 

 

He has his head screwed on correctly and a college degree.Wishing him the best.

I respect his love for education, it sucks his shoulder didn't let him live out his baseball dream.But nothing dooms a pitching career like a persistent shoulder problem.

Is his career for sure over?I thought he was supposed to be good for next spring.He could make it back as a reliever.If I were him, that's what I would want to do if I could.

He suffered a setback from his 2017 labrum surgery that is supposed to be 4-6 weeks until he can throw again. It’s not impossible, but not looking good.

This could the Twins chance at signing a front of the rotation free agent. And probably at a bargain price.

I am rooting for Mr. Meyer wherever he ends up. I hope someone gives him a shot to come back if he wants it.

Been a while since he was someone's adopted prospect, but didn't he teach in the off season?
