This move is awesome. Excellent depth building.

 

In AAA last year he pitched 122 IP, 1.35 whip, 8 K/9, less hits than innings, and a positive HR rate. The era was about 4.50, but He did get shelled in the majors though. You may remember him as the centerpiece in the Tim Hudson trade. He never really panned out, but he could be a good situational starter or long reliever. As soon as Olsen is traded, Dan Meyer is our 6th starter. Fantastic move.

Plus the guy has been slowed in his development with his lingering shoulder injuries. If he ever returns to 100% health for a couple straight seasons, we could see why he was a top 25 type prospect in all of baseball.

 

Honestly when healthy he kind of reminds me of a Scott Olsen and I would not be surprised at all if Meyer has a better or equal 2009 compared to Olsen.

Good Move. Any information on what pitches he throws?

 

 

Fastball 91-93, slider, curve, changeup. Going into the '05 season John Sickels (baseball prospectus) predicted he'd be a ROY candidate for the A's, called him the next Barry Zito or Mark Mulder.

 

 

Few years ago dude looked like a star in the making, especially in AA. (86/12 K-BB rate)

 

 

It was wierd that he kept getting pounded with the A's, you would think pitching well in the PCL would at least translate to a serviceable ML pitcher... maybe didn't get enough opportunities.

 

 

Worth a look, certainly.

Thanks. These are the moves that we should expect from this FO. I wouldne be suprised to see this pitcher have a good career with the marlins. It what we do after all.
