Minnesota Twins P Alex Meyer (shoulder) resumed playing catch Wednesday, July 6, according to general manager Terry Ryan.
Fantasy Tip: Meyer has been on the disabled list for nearly two months because of right shoulder fatigue. The 26-year-old right-hander is 0-1 with a 12.27 ERA in two games this season and is not worth stashing outside of deep AL-only fantasy leagues.

Minnesota Twins P Alex Meyer (shoulder) threw a bullpen session without experiencing any setbacks Friday, May 20. He is scheduled to throw again Sunday, May 22.
Fantasy Tip: Meyer has been dealing with right shoulder fatigue and there is no timetable for his return from the disabled list. The 25-year-old righty is 0-1 with a 12.27 ERA in two appearances (one start) at the MLB level this year and is 1-1 with a 1.04 ERA in three games (two starts) with Class AAA Rochester. Meyer's fantasy value is limited to deep AL-only leagues at this point.

Minnesota Twins SP Alex Meyer was optioned to the minors after his start Tuesday, May 3.
Fantasy Tip: Meyer lasted just 2 2/3 innings and allowed three earned runs to the Houston Astros Tuesday night. Before that, he was used in relief for an inning April 29 and allowed two runs. Meyer could be swing man/long relief arm for the Twins again at some point this year, but his fantasy value is limited to deeper AL-only setups.

Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone is moving to the bullpen, and SP Alex Meyer will make the start in Milone's place Tuesday, May 3.
Fantasy Tip: Milone is a soft tosser who had a 5.40 ERA and only 17 strikeouts in 20 innings over his four starts. He can be left to the waiver wire outside of maybe deep AL leagues. Meyer will be making his first major league start against the Astros Tuesday. He sported a 5.28 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and struck out 9.8 hitters per nine in the minors last year. Meyer's stay in the rotation may be brief, though, and while he has strikeout upside, he's strictly a wait-and-see option in deeper mixed leagues for now.

Minnesota Twins SP Alex Meyer could be debuting for the team sooner than later. The team has "kicked around the idea" of giving him a start. Their starting pitcher for Sunday, May 1, is still to be determined.
Fantasy Tip: It makes sense for the Twins to roll with Meyer, as they just lost two of their top starting pitchers to injury in Kyle Gibson and Ervin Santana, and will be unveiling fellow top pitching prospect Jose Berrios on Wednesday. Meyer will have some solid value to offer once he arrives in Minnesota, as his home starts would be in a pitcher-friendly park, plus his pedigree indicates he could be a very useful asset in fantasy leagues. Owners should monitor his situation.
