Righthander Alex Meyer pitched well again in his second start tonight since the Nationals promoted him to the high Class A Carolina League.
Meyer, 22, allowed only one run (it was unearned) in six innings with two hits, one walk and five strikeouts for Potomac. Through his first two Carolina League starts, Meyer has allowed only the one unearned run through 12 innings with 12 strikeouts and two walks.
Meyer, a first-round pick (23rd overall) last year out of Kentucky, had a 3.10 ERA with 107 strikeouts and 34 walks in 90 innings for the Nationals in low Class A Hagerstown to start the year. He's still working to master his delivery and his command, but Meyer has power stuff and could be ready to help in Washington at some point in the next year or two.
