The Orioles were seeking a veteran arm for their rotation and dangled Miranda in talks with both the Angels and Mariners, ultimately flipping Miranda to Seattle in exchange for Wade Miley.
Fletcher notes that the Halos were seeking more upside than Miranda brings to the table and felt that Meyer fit the bill.
He was making the start after being called up from Triple-A Salt Lake, taking the place of the injured Tyler Skaggs (strained oblique). The Mariners took a 1-0 lead in the first inning when Nelson Cruz went the other way on a 98 mph fastball from Meyer, hitting it to the wall in right-center for a double that scored Robinson Cano from first.
The Angels responded with two runs in the second inning after Cameron Maybin singled and Danny Espinosa walked with one out.
Indeed, the 27-year-old former first-rounder was a mainstay on Top 100 prospect lists throughout the industry several years ago, though shoulder injuries have derailed his career to date.
Meyer will get a start for the Halos this week, while Nolasco has at the very least been a durable source of innings for manager Mike Scioscia.
Ben Gamel and Guillermo Heredia also had three hits and two RBIs apiece for Seattle, which tallied 16 hits.
On the wrong end of most of those hits was Angels starter Alex Meyer, who lasted only four innings and gave up six runs and eight hits.
