Meadows says he’ll be in big league camp
Brewers left-handed pitching prospect Dan Meadows wrote on Twitter this morning that he’d been invited to Major League Spring Training camp as a non-roster player. He would be the fourth non-roster pitcher to get an invitation, joining recently-signed lefty Juan Perez and 2011 first-round Draft picks Jed Bradley and Taylor Jungmann.
Meadows, 24, made 40 relief appearances and one start between Double-A Huntsville and Triple-A Nashville last season with a 2.68 ERA. He does not overpower hitters, but he’s had a strikeouts to walks ratio of more than three to one in each of the past three seasons. Meadows’ nickname is Thunder Dan, a fact among many that he revealed last summer in a fun piece from the Sounds’ website.
