This kid is my top pitching prospect in the minors, even over gore. He has 2 filthy MLB ready pitches (fastball/slider) and we’ve seen pitchers like Lamet thrive on that alone.  He also has a better third pitch than Lamet in his changeup.  He has great mechanics and is in a great organization for pitching. He’s dominated his entire life no matter where he’s pitched, and I don’t see that stopping.  I’m calling my shot that Max Meyer is a future ace, so much that he’s the first pitching prospect I’ve ever perused aggressively in 4 years of deep dynasties (I prefer hitters).  Get shares while you still can

Where do you rank him in a FYPD for this year?

Honestly, if trade value wasn’t a thing I’d take him after Tork.  But since the consensus is he’s much lower I’d probably pick some players before him even though I’m not as confident

Any chance we see Meyer up this year?  Fangraphs has his ETA at 2021, and the Marlins are getting decimated by pitching injuries.  At the very least could we see him as a reliever a la Crotchet?  I mean he's 22 years old already and ridiculously polished

I'm surprised by the 2021 ETA on Fangraphs. They're traditionally conservative but I've also seen Eric say he doesn't put a ton of thought into the call up dates. 

I'm high on Max as well but I'm skeptical he'll be much of a contributor this season.

Another good outing. Surprised they took him out after 5 innings. Load management I suppose. 

So exiting.  He’s looked unhittable besides that second start.  His slider is filthy

Another 5 scoreless from Meyer, and this was without his best stuff (4 BB, 2 K’s).  Kid is awesome, 1.59 ERA so far.  Ironically his strikeout stuff hasn’t even been as advertised but we all know it’s there with that wipeout slider

Stats before futures game:

 

54 innings.   1.67 ERA, 3.69 FIP.  9.00 K/9 and 4.5 BB/9

honestly, I may be picky but I was so confident in him dominating immediately that I kinda expected more WRT the strikeouts and walks.  Can’t deny the results though and it’s his first profesional season and it’s AA
