Mack Draft: – Alex Meyer, KC Serna, Peter O’Brien, Bobby Crocker, and Trevor Bauer

Alex Meyer:

UK junior right-handed pitcher Alex Meyer came to Lexington with the reputation as one of the best high school pitching prospects in the country. Meyer reportedly turned down a $2 million signing bonus as the 20th round pick of the Boston Red Sox in 2008 and was immediately listed among the candidates for the No. 1 pick in the 2011 draft. Two years later Meyer’s performance at UK has been inconsistent to the tune of a 6-7 record with a 6.34 career ERA. Meyer has struck out 143 batters and walked 81 in 110 and two-third career innings. –
