Draft: Oh Meo My! Coastal Carolina P tosses no-no

Anthony Meo, initially ranked No. 26 in the Draft Top 50, threw a no-hitter on Wednesday in the opening round of the Big South Conference Tournament.

It was the first tournament no-no in the history of the conference. Meo did walk one and two other runners reached via error, but he struck out nine. The right-hander retired the first 16 batters he faced. Coastal Carolina is the top seed in the Big South Tournament and will play either Charleston Southern or Winthrop in the second round.

Meo has an excellent fastball and slider, though his changeup lags behind. That, combined with some effort in his delivery, have many feeling Meo will be a reliever in the future, though he could begin as a starter. Either way, today’s performance certainly doesn’t hurt his stock.
