Alex Meyer Deals in the Arizona Fall League

Twins top prospect strikes out seven in nationally televised appearance.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Do you cringe when someone utters "pitch to contact"? Do you long for the days when the leading strikeout pitcher on the Twins wasn't a relief pitcher? Is Kevin Correia still circling the block, waiting for you to come out of your house so he can beat you up?

Well good news--Alex Meyer is on the way. The Twins number 3 prospect (and 31 prospect in MLB overall) impressed everyone and your Mom last night in his nationally-televised Arizona Fall League outing. He carried a no-hitter into the 6th inning, which is the longest Meyer has taken a no-hitter in his minor league or college career.

Ultimately, Meyer pitched 72 pitches over 5.2 innings, giving up one hit, one walk, and striking out seven.

Seven strikeouts!

Listen to the announcers just pump up Alex's ego below.

Remember to vote for Alex Meyer in Round 2 of the Twinkie Town 2014 Prospect Vote--or, you know, don't, it you don't think he deserves it.
