Detroit Tigers outfielder Austin Meadows (Achilles) went hitless during his rehab game at Triple-A Toledo on Friday. The 27-year-old is working his way back from an injury that has sidelined him a majority of the season. He's hitting .250/.347/.328 with no homers and 11 RBI through 36 games this season. It has been a tough year for Meadows, but hopefully he can contribute again before the end of the regular season.
Detroit Tigers outfielder Austin Meadows (Achilles) went through some agility drills and workouts on the field prior to the team's game against the Cleveland Guardians on Tuesday. According to Tigers beat reporter Jason Beck, Meadows could begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday if he shows no lingering problems from the workout. Meadows hasn't suited up for a game since mid-June. He landed on the COVID-19 injured list back at that point in time, then was transferred to the 10-day injured list about a week ago due to strains in his left and right Achilles. It's certainly good news that he's nearing a rehab assignment, suggesting he could make his long-awaited return to the majors within the next week or two.
The Detroit Tigers have transferred outfielder Austin Meadows (Achilles) to the 10-day injured list due to strains in his left and right Achilles. Meadows had just recently cleared COVID-19 protocols and was about to begin a rehab assignment, but now he'll remain sidelined for a new reason. The 27-year-old has been held to just 36 games this year due to various ailments. He's still searching for his first home run in a Tigers jersey and he owns a .250/.347/.328 slash line on the year.
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Austin Meadows managed to slug 27 homers and drive in 106 runs despite hitting .234 across 142 games last season. He slashed .234/.315/.458 with 27 home runs, 106 RBI, 79 runs scored, and four stolen bases over 591 plate appearances. His underlying metrics in 2021 show he was closer to his career year in 2019 when he recorded a .380 WOBA with 33 long balls. The 26-year-old cut his strikeout rate from 32.9% in 2020 to 20.6% last season but saw his BAIP drop from .288 to .249. Meadows will need to improve against southpaws to take the next leap as a top-tier outfielder. He posted an abysmal .198 WOBA against lefties in the second half of last season, which could lead to Meadows being on the bench more often than not if he continues to struggle against left-handers. The former Pittsburgh Pirate is projected to hit third for a Rays lineup that should be potent in 2022 with Brandon Lowe, Wander Franco, and Randy Arozarena. Steamer projections are not buying a full bounce-back, projecting Meadows with a .332 WOBA and a .245/.340/.454 slash line. According to RotoBaller's Expected Draft Values, Meadows' Steamer projection makes him roughly below fair value at his current NFBC ADP of 126. The Rays slugger should provide fantasy managers with reliable power and solid counting stats in 2022.
