Player Notes
Twins pitching prospect Alex Meyer has been placed on Triple-A Rochester's disabled list due to right shoulder inflammation.

Advice: Meyer had to exit Saturday's start due to the injury. The Twins have indicated to this point that the ailment isn't serious, but it's worrisome after the righty's shoulder issues last season. It's not clear whether Meyer will be sent for an MRI.

Twins pitching prospect Alex Meyer was lifted from his start at Triple-A Rochester on Saturday after just 1 1/3 innings because he "couldn't get loose."

Advice: Meyer's fastball was sitting around 90 mph rather than its usual 95+ mph. It's a bit worrisome after last year's shoulder issues, but the Twins insist that Meyer's removal was precautionary. However, this should eliminate the chances of him seeing a promotion in September. Meyer's season ends with a 3.52 ERA and an International League-leading 153 strikeouts over 130 1/3 innings.
