Nice little write-up on Jonathan Meyer

2009 3rd Round pick Jonathan Meyer is doing fairly well in his repeat of Lancaster, hitting .290/.324/.458 with 14 extra-base hits. He does have 32K:6BB in 140PAs, but here's some good news (with a captip to Deputy Street): Baseball Prospect Report thinks he's for real.

I also know guys like this, who have “just enough,” paired with great instincts, work ethic and instincts, also find ways to play above their basic scouting physical grades and become everyday major leaguers.

There's a line in there about Meyer being a good NL bench player, which doesn't really help with the Astros going to the AL in about six months. But it's a good read otherwise.

I found this line at the end interesting: "of the infielders on his club in Lancaster, this is the guy I want." Which means he likes Meyer more than Mier.
