Meyers shines in season opener
Lost among the headlines last night of the Washington Nationals 11 inning victory, and the professional debut of phenom Bryce Harper, 2009 Nationals Minor League Pitcher of the Year Brad Meyers made his return from a debilitating foot injury.
Meyers, the 6'6" righty who was off to a fast start in 2010 when he was forced to shut it down after six starts, threw five scoreless innings while striking out an impressive nine hitters and walking none in an easy Opening Day victory over the Bowie Baysox, the Baltimore Orioles AA affiliate.
One has to wonder how long it will be until Meyers joins 2010 Nationals Minor League Pitcher of the Year Tom Milone in AAA. As long as health is not an issue, you can bet Meyers will force the Nationals hand sooner rather than later.
