Meisner ran his fastball as hot at 94 mph on the showcase circuit and in spring scrimmages, but he didn't maintain that velocity deep into games or into his senior season. He spent much of the spring pitching at 86-89 mph, though he's projectable at 6-foot-7 and 185 pounds and there's hope that he'll have an above-average fastball in the future. He has trouble at times keeping his long limbs in sync in his delivery, which affects the quality of his secondary pitches. He'll flash an average circle changeup that lacks consistency, and he has trouble staying on top of a curveball that lacks power. He does have a clean arm action, throws on a steep downhill plane and works in the strike zone with all of his offerings. Adding strength will be key for Meisner, a Texas Tech recruit who's expected to turn pro.
