Every player needs to go through it.
Seth I read somewhere that Meyer is coming back in "Mid July" This makes it sound like the team is concerned about the shoulder even though the MRI came up clean.
Is "mid july" right? Is he experiencing soreness still? Any news on this?

Does anybody have any information on Alexis Tapia in the DSL. I've noticed that he's been putting up some very nice performances. Obviously, its a very very small sample size but in 10 IP he's got 11 K's and 1 BB with a 1.80 ERA and 0.70 WHIP. I also saw that he's only 17 and is listed at 6'2" and 195 lbs which seems like a pretty nice frame for a 17 year old pitcher. Sorry, I've got prospect fever and I'm just trying to find more arms in the Twins system to hope on. Has anybody heard anything about this kid?
I don't dive into the DSL too much. The only thing I look at there is age. I enjoy watching the BB/K rate as well. So, Tapia has those two things going for him. He's the kind of guy who gets to the GCL as an 18 year old. The numbers, as you say in a small sample size, are nice... but the numbers mean very little when they're 7 levels from the big leagues.
I like to see names like that, put them in my back pocket, get a little excited, and see how things go next year.
