Drew Edward Meyer (born August 29, 1981 in Charleston, South Carolina) is a retired Major League Baseball player, formerly of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim organization. Meyer made his major league debut on April 21, 2006, for the Texas Rangers in a game against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Meyer attended Bishop England High School in Charleston, South Carolina, as well as the University of South Carolina.

Meyer was the Rangers' first round pick in the 2002 Major League Baseball Draft. Meyer hit .214 in his limited major league at-bats in 2006, before he was returned to Triple-A Oklahoma, where he batted .228/.278/.305. Meyer was designated for assignment by the Texas Rangers on January 12, 2007, and was outrighted to the minor leagues after passing through league-wide waivers on January 22. As this was Meyer's first outright, he did not have the right to decline the assignment. He was also given a non-roster invitation to spring training to compete for a spot on the major league roster.[citation needed] He became a free agent at the end of the season and signed a minor league contract with the Houston Astros.

In 2011, Meyer returned to the University of South Carolina to complete his degree and serve as a student-assistant coach of the Gamecock baseball program.[1]
