Alex Meyer blanks Royals while Angels bats explode – Orange County Register

Richards told him what pushed him over the hump.

“He just kind of simplified things,” Meyer recalled. “Trust (the fastball). Just throw it over the middle and let them hit it. I’m not saying that’s the whole key to everything, but that definitely played into it.”

   1. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: June 18, 2017 at 01:39 PM (#5478277)
Meyer's been a prospect for years, but he finally seems to have found something. In his few starts in Anaheim last year, he always looked like he was groping for the strike zone, falling behind in counts and getting himself in trouble. He's still got strike zone issues this year, so it's not like all his problems are over, but his willingness to throw his curve ball in fastball counts has gotten him out of a ton of jams. Four of his last six starts have been QSs, he doesn't give up homers, and he misses bats. If he can shave off just a few more walks, he could be a very solid rotation guy.
