Max Meyer signs contract, will be added to Miami's player pool

The Marlins signed their first-round pick RHP Max Meyer.

Fantasy Impact

Additionally, Meyer will reportedly be added to the Marlins' 60-man player pool. The Minnesota product is considered close to big league ready (perhaps as a reliever initially) but it remains doubtful that Miami would start him service-time clock in what is expected to be an uncompetitive season.

Max Meyer considered a strong candidate for Marlins' taxi squad

Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports Max Meyer is a "strong" candidate to be considered for the Marlins' taxi squad this year.

Fantasy Impact

Meyer, the third overall pick from this month's draft, is considered close to big league ready. Miami clearly thinks keeping him close to the big league club could be beneficial for his development. It remains unlikely the former Minnesota Gopher pitches in the majors this summer.

Max Meyer selected No. 3 by Miami Marlins

The Miami Marlins have selected University of Minnesota RHP Max Meyer with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2020 MLB Draft.

Fantasy Impact

Meyer does not have the prototypical height you'd expect from an ace, but he has a blistering fastball that nearly touches triple digits, plus a low-90s wipeout slider. Meyer just might be the most big-league ready pitcher in the draft, so expect him to ascend quickly through the minors. At worst, he will end up being a high-end reliever with his two-pitch mix. Meyer has already signed a deal with the Marlins, pending a physical.
