Good notes. For what it's worth, this:
Alex Meyer isn't ready to be promoted. Yes, there are many, many more positives than negatives. One big positive is that he's second in the Eastern League in strikeouts, with 73. That's why we traded a good player, Denard Span, for him. But if I'm a member of the Twins' front office, I need to see more consistency from Meyer. By comparison to Darnell's seven quality starts in his past ten, Meyer has four.

Yeah, no objections to holding Meyer back. He's one of those guys who will dominate once his control and knowledge of the game improve. But he's not there yet.

I agree on Meyer, he's not ready yet.

He has things to work on with his mechanics, nothing new there, but he does lead the Eastern League in K/9, 2nd in Ks overall and 2nd in FIP. For a first year AA player, I'd say he is doing near-phenominally well. Provided he's fully healthy, he should be close to ready to be further challenged at AAA.
