Ryan Meaux was a 25th round JuCo pick out of Lamar (Colo.) CC in the 2001 draft. Opponents only hitting .198 off of his so far this season, even though I would think he is playing below the level of competition his age and experience would indicate.

More info to come as it's gathered...

I was thinking the Sox may be able to turn him into a starter,even though it would take some time.

He is 5'11" and 175 pounds. Signed a letter of intent to play ball at Texas Tech before signing with SF. Born on 10/05/1978


LOL, can someone downsize this?

Possible. He's already appeared in 43 games, which is quite a few for the SAL.

Can anybody say Dennis Tankerersley?

Don't have any of his numbers in front of me, but what in particular are you referring to.

From BA,

Meaux, a 23-year-old lefty, signed as a 25th-round pick out of Lamar (Colo.) CC in 2001. He was cuffed around in his pro debut, posting a 5.59 ERA at short-season Salem-Keizer but blossomed into a low Class A South Atlantic League all-star in 2002. In 43 games at Hagerstown, he went 4-3, 2.68 with 16 saves. Opponents hit just .198 with one homer against him, and he fanned 41 in 54 innings. Meaux doesn't have noteworthy velocity but gets good sink on his fastball, and his curveball is also effective.

Tank was a no-name unspectacular reliever when he was acquired from the Red Sox. I don't really mean to imply Meaux could be that good, just you never know.

Now Tank is one of the top prospects in the Padres Organization or at least thats who I think Kermit is referring too.

I think that would be a decent idea. I definately like this guys stats and I think we'll have him up to AA soon enough if he stays as a reliever, but if he starts, then I'd imagine he'd start doing it in A ball and eventually move up to AA.
