Meyers Makes ALDS Roster

Former Husker Jake Meyers has made the Houston Astros’ 26-man roster for the American League Divisional Series against the Minnesota Twins, the organization announced Saturday morning.


Meyers appeared in 112 games in the regular-season and posted a .227 batting average with 16 doubles, a triple, 10 home runs, 33 RBI and 42 runs.


The former Husker has appeared in six games in two postseasons with the Astros, hitting .300 at the plate with a pair of RBI and two runs scored in the playoffs.


Meyers was drafted by the Astros in the 13th round (391st overall) of the 2017 MLB Draft. At the time of his MLB debut in 2021, he was the 37th Husker to play in the Majors.


A native of Omaha, Meyers was a three-year letterwinner at Nebraska from 2015 to 2017. The two-way standout was a third-team All-American as a junior and a two-time All-Big Ten and Academic All-Big Ten selection. Meyers was a career .307 hitter and finished 17-4 on the mound with a 2.61 ERA and 112 strikeouts.


The five-game series between the Astros and Twins begins this afternoon, with first pitch set for 3:45 p.m. in Houston.
