Alex Meyer expected back 'relatively quickly'

Alex Meyer is expected to return relatively quickly from a shoulder injury, according to the Angels.

Fantasy Impact

Meyer has avoided structural damage, so the hope is that he'll be back before long. He's been pretty solid for the Angels this season with a 3.74 ERA and 1.34 WHIP, and he's fantasy-relevant given his 75 strikeouts over 67 1/3 innings.

Alex Meyer allows just one hit, sets up Halos for 7-0 win against Nationals

Alex Meyer owned the mound for 7.0 innings, allowing just one hit and one walk in a win over the Washington Nationals. He sat down seven via strikeout.

Fantasy Impact

Meyer's flashes of greatness solidify his high ceiling, but he has been inconsistent all season long. He spun five hitless innings against a top club before allowing his lone hit in the sixth. Just to point out a trend, Meyer has shut out three of his last five opponents. Two of which were the Nationals and the Dodgers, so he is rising to the occasion with the best of them. This is important for those in DFS leagues because he will continue to sport a bargain price tag until he gains consistency.

Alex Meyer struggles with control, allows just one hit

Alex Meyer dealt six scoreless innings while giving up just one hit against the Dodgers on Wednesday. He also walked five batters and retired just four via strikeout.

Fantasy Impact

His lack of control continues to be a glaring weakness in his game, but he found a way to work around it on Wendesday. Despite allowing five free-passes, he put out six innings of clean-ball. The towering rookie looked a bit out of sorts against the boiling hot Dodgers, but if he can manage to locate the plate more consistently he will be a serious contributor to the club. Keep tabs on him until be begins to blossom, but until then he's not much more than a fantasy spot-start.

Alex Meyer walks five in short outing against the Yankees Monday

Alex Meyer gave up two runs on five hits and five walks while striking out five in a no-decision against the Yankees Monday. He lasted just 4 2/3 innings, as his pitch count rose quickly due to the walks and a general lack of command.

Fantasy Impact

Meyer has electric stuff and is capable of great strikeout numbers, but the walks continue to plague him. His ERA is 4.05 and his WHIP is 1.55, as he has struck out 46 in 40 innings but has also walked 29. His next start is scheduled for Saturday against the Royals.

Alex Meyer turns in quality start

Alex Meyer twirled six innings without allowing a single earned run, walking four and striking out nine in a 4-0 loss to the Tigers.

Fantasy Impact

This marks back-to-back quality starts for the 27-year-old. He also managed to rack up a season-high of nine Ks. Don't go rushing to the waiver wire just yet, as his next start comes against the powerful New York Yankees. However, streaming the right-hander against weaker ball clubs might not be a bad idea going forward for those in deeper-leagues.
