Who's on First: PAC-Men

The Tigers' 2012 Fall Roster includes five players recruited from PAC 12 Country:

Eric Anderson

♦ Senior RHP Eric Anderson, Mountain Vista HS, Highlands Ranch, Colorado
  • Anderson is unlikely to see any playing time in 2013.  He underwent Tommy John surgery toward the end of the 2012 season.  While recovery times for that surgery have been shortened by advances in the technology, it's unlikely he'll be ready for in-game innings until well into the season.  If that's the case, he and the coaches may decide it would be better to slow down his rehab and aim for a full season in 2014, rather than a risky hurry-up partial season in 2013.
  • 2012 Stats:  0-3, 4.44 ERA in 4 games, 4 appearances, 24.1 IP; 30 H, 12 R, 12 ER, 3 BB, 16 SO, 1 HR, OPP BA .313
Justin Byrd

♦ Junior (redshirt) C Justin Byrd, Littleton, CO (by way of Green River Community College, Auburn, WA)
  • Byrd did not play in 2012
  • Came to Missouri from Green River Community College
  • Byrd will cempete with several catchers for playing time
Dillon Everett

♦ Sophomore INF Dillon Everett, Horizon HS, Phoenix, Arizona
  • Everett goes into the practice season as the front-runner for the 2B starting job.
  • 2012 Stats: .215 BA (42-for-195), 34 R, 5 2B, 1 3B, 19 RBI, .251 SLG%, 21 BB, 15 HBP, 25 SO, .336 OB%, 2/4 SB
  • Everett spent his summer playing for the San Diego Force

♦ Freshman INF Jonathan Meyer, Mountain Ridge HS, Phoenix, Arizona
  • 6'0", 185 lb, L/R
  • Meyer is a middle infielder who will be working to find playing time in a crowded field
  • 2012 Stats:  .358 BA (29-for-81), 26 R, 17 RBI, 10 2B, 4 3B, 3 HR, 14 BB, 10 K, 2 HBP, .464 OBP, .691 SLG, 9/11 SB
  • Meyer had previously been committed to attend Glendale Community College before switching to Mizzou
