ANAHEIM, Calif. -- A pitcher trying to rebuild his mechanics will oppose another trying to rebuild his career when the Seattle Mariners and the Los Angeles Angels meet Tuesday night at Angel Stadium.The Mariners are hovering within 2 1/2 games of the Baltimore Orioles, who hold the American Leagues second wild-card spot, and within 9 1/2 of the first-place Texas Rangers in the American League West.The Angels Alex Meyer, who came from the Minnesota Twins at the trading deadline, once was regarded as one of the major leagues best prospects. MLB.com ranked him 29th overall while BaseballProspectus.com listed the right-hander 15th before this season. Scouts like Meyers fastball, which can reach close to 100 mph, and his sharp curveball.The Washington Nationals selected Meyer in the first round of the 2011 draft, then traded him to the Twins for outfielder Denard Span in 2012. But shoulder injuries have hampered the right-handers progress and limited him this year to 29 innings covering eight games at four different levels, from the Arizona Rookie League to the American League.Meyer made his debut with the Angels on Wednesday against the Oakland Athletics. The rookie conceded just one run and one hit while collecting five strikeouts in 3 1/3 innings but issued four walks and threw 68 pitches in a 4-1 loss.My command went in and out, Meyer told MLB.com. Sometimes, I get too excited and try to make a pitch before Im ready, or try to throw it harder than I should.Nevertheless, Angels manager Mike Scioscia would not let individual negatives diminish an overriding positive impression.His stuff is real, Scioscia told MLB.com. You saw a big arm. You saw a guy who wasnt missing by a lot, so he had an idea of where the ball was going. He lost his release point in a couple of stretches. But for the most part, it was good to see that stuff.The Mariners Taijuan Walker, meanwhile, is trying to recover from perhaps the worst performance of his major league career. On Sept. 3, Walker allowed five runs on six hits in only two-thirds of an inning in receiving his fourth consecutive loss, a 10-3 rout by the Angels.The right-hander told the Seattle Times that he was in shock after that performance. Then he met with pitching coach Mel Stottlemyre Jr. to discuss the changes the coach wanted to make to Walkers delivery.Walker, who had resisted those changes even during a personal six-game losing streak from May 1 to June 3, implemented them Thursday night against the Texas Rangers. Despite walking the first two batters he faced, the right-hander kept them from scoring. The Mariners 6-3 win enabled Walker to break his four-game losing streak.Afterward, Walker told the Seattle Times that the two early walks tempted him to jettison the new approach Stottlemyre wanted him to take.It was good that I stuck with it, Walker said. The first couple of innings, it was weird. It felt awkward. It was a little bit off. But I stuck with it. After the second inning, third inning, it just clicked. My timing was down and the tempo was better.Seattle manager Scott Servais expressed enthusiasm about Walkers performance, and hope for his future.I was as happy for a player as Ive been in a long time, Servais told the Seattle Times. After those two hitters, it would have been so easy to melt, and he didnt. Some of the adjustments that he made with his mechanics, I think theyre going to pay off.
