Cla Meredith, relief pitcher
Is he a major-league pitcher?
Meredith’s another extreme sidearmer. He’s had some good years and some bad years:
As a sidearmer, Meredith is always going to be vulnerable to base hits. Consequently, he should never come into a game with runners on base. I’d use him to start innings and try to have him pitch more than one inning at a time. He’s not someone who will have four consecutive 1-2-3 innings, then give up four straight hits in his next outing; he’ll average a hit an inning by giving up one hit in every inning. If you let him play to the percentages, and use him in situations where one base hit won’t kill you, I see no reason why he couldn’t be an effective pitcher.
