Round 10

Post by ReadingPiratesFan »

Round 10, No. 283 overall: Justin Meis, RHP, Eastern Michigan University

Notable skill: The projections on Meis’ slider are solid, though it’s still a little slurvy and deep. But it sits in the low 80s and has two-plane movement, and with some tightening up, it could be an effective putaway pitch. Meis can also sit at 91-93 mph with his fastball.

Fun fact: Meis is a Pittsburgh native. He attended Bethel Park High School, which lies a few miles south of the city, and he set a school record by striking out 16 batters in one game.

Quotable: After putting eventual College World Series champion Mississippi State on no-hitter watch and going eight-plus innings in Starkville on March 13, Meis told the Bethel Park Hawk Eye, “I was trying to just focus on one hitter at a time. The crowd was unbelievable. I was able to feed off their energy towards the end of the game.”
