Orioles signed LHP Dan Meyer to a minor league contract.
Meyer hasn't pitched in the major leagues since 2010 and registered a hideous 7.02 ERA in 41 innings this past season for the independent Long Island Ducks. He is doubtful to reach the big league level with the O's. Mon, Nov 12, 2012 07:53:00 PM

Pirates signed LHP Dan Meyer to a minor league contract.

Meyer was released by the Phillies over the weekend. The 29-year-old left-hander spent most of the 2010 season at the Triple-A level, but posted a 3.09 ERA and 56/21 K/BB ratio over 58 1/3 innings with the Marlins in 2009. He'll begin the year with Triple-A Indianapolis.

Phillies released LHP Dan Meyer.

Meyer, 29, was hammered for 10 runs over 9 1/3 innings with the Marlins last season, but posted a 3.09 ERA and 56/21 K/BB ratio over 58 1/3 innings in 2009. Most Triple-A teams could use a lefty of his caliber, so he won't have trouble latching on with a new organization.

According to Bill Evans of the Gloucester County Times, the Phillies have signed LHP Dan Meyer to a minor league contract.

This is a worthwhile move for the Phillies, who have a real need for a left-handed reliever. Meyer, 29, was hammered for 10 runs over 9 1/3 innings with the Marlins this past season, but posted a 3.09 ERA and 56/21 K/BB ratio over 58 1/3 innings in 2009.

Marlins sent LHP Dan Meyer outright to Triple-A New Orleans.

It's been quite a fall from grace for the 29-year-old Meyer, who was considered for the Marlins' ninth-inning gig at one point last season but allowed 10 earned runs in 9 1/3 big-league frames this year.

Marlins purchased the contract of LHP Dan Meyer from Triple-A New Orleans.

He replaces Tim Wood in the bullpen. Meyer earned a return trip to Florida by pitching 10 scoreless innings in his final eight appearances for New Orleans. It took 2 1/2 months, but maybe he finally has his issues ironed out.

Marlins outrighted LHP Dan Meyer from Triple-A New Orleans.

Meyer was designated for assignment by the Marlins last week after posting a 10.80 ERA through his first 12 appearances this season.

Marlins designated LHP Dan Meyer for assignment.

Another part of their bullpen overhaul. Meyer posted a 3.09 ERA in 71 games in 2009, but has a 10.80 ERA through his first 12 appearances this season. Meyer walked five and allowed three runs in just one inning against the Braves on Thursday.

Marlins activated LHP Dan Meyer from the 15-day disabled list.

He missed the past two weeks-plus with a left calf strain. Meyer struggled in posting a 16.20 ERA in 3 1/3 innings to start the season, but the hope is that the time off will help.

Dan Meyer has completed a minor league rehab assignment and is expected to rejoin the Marlins early next week.

Meyer has been on the disabled list since late April with a left calf strain. It was never a serious injury, but the Marlins needed bodies in the bullpen when he came down with the slight ailment. He's struggled to a 16.20 ERA in 3 1/3 innings this season. Hopefully the rest will help some.

Marlins placed LHP Dan Meyer on the 15-day disabled list with a left calf strain.

It's not believed to be a serious injury, but the roster move makes space for the returning Brian Sanches on the 25-man roster. Meyer has allowed six runs over 3 1/3 innings (16.20 ERA) so far this season.

Dan Meyer collected his second save of the season Saturday evening in a win over the Pirates.

Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez wasn't lying when he told reporters he was going to use a closer-by-committee setup in the wake of Matt Lindstrom's placement on the disabled list. Meyer and Leo Nunez both have two saves in the last 10 days. We'll have to continue playing the guessing game.

Dan Meyer pitched a scoreless inning Monday and has yet to allow a run in four innings this spring.

With Taylor Tankersley imploding again, it looks like Meyer will be the second lefty in Florida's bullpen. He allowed two hits, walked none and struck out two this spring.

Marlins claimed LHP Dan Meyer off waivers from the Athletics.

Meyer is a long shot to turn into a useful major league pitcher at this point, but there's nothing wrong with using a waiver claim on him. The former Braves prospect went 10-5 with a 4.48 ERA, 113 H and 109/52 K/BB in 122 2/3 IP as a starter for Triple-A Sacramento last season. However, the Marlins see him as a reliever. He was 0-4 with a 7.48 ERA in four starts and seven relief appearances for Oakland.

Dan Meyer was torched for eight runs -- seven earned -- in 3 1/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the Royals.

We're not sure why the A's keep sending Meyer to the hill to get lit up. His lone shot of contributing is as a reliever. In four starts so far, the only one in which he's managed to keep the team in the game was when he faced Triple-A Seattle. Even then, he gave up four runs in five innings.
