Twins pitching prospect Alex Meyer said he’s willing to pitch out of the bullpen if it would help the team win, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. The right-hander explained, “If it’s me being a left-on-left guy, I really don’t care.”

Meyer will compete in spring training with Tommy Milone, Mike Pelfrey, and Trevor May for the fifth spot in the Twins’ starting rotation.

Meyer, 25, was rated among the game’s 50-best prospects according to MLB.com, Baseball America, and Baseball Prospectus going into the start of the 2014 season. With Triple-A Rochester, Meyer finished with a 3.52 ERA and a 153/64 K/BB ratio in 130 1/3 innings.
