  • Austin Meadows Hitless In Rehab Game

    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.

  • Austin Meadows Hasn't Resumed Running, Won't Return In July

    Detroit Tigers outfielder Austin Meadows (Achilles) has yet to resume running since being pulled from his rehab assignment on July 11. Meadows was put on the IL on June 17 with an Achilles injury, and after aggravating the injury he is likely to be out a while longer. Manager AJ Hinch said he will have a better idea of a timetable for Meadows once he begins running, but he won't return in July. It's another tough break for the 27-year-old, who has dealt with various injuries and illnesses this season. His inability to stay on the field may also explain his struggles on the field, as he's gone homerless with a .250 average over 128 at-bats. At this point, he is droppable in any league without IL spots or where they are limited.

  • Tigers To Shut Down Austin Meadows' Rehab Assignment Due To Achilles Soreness

    The Tigers are planning to pull outfielder Austin Meadows off his rehab assignment due to soreness in both of his achilles tendons, reports Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press. “I think we’re going to have to stop his rehab and start over,” manager A.J. Hinch tells Petzold. Acquired from the Rays in an offseason…

  • Austin Meadows Transferred To 10-Day Injured List

    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.

  • Riley Greene Coming Up, Austin Meadows To IL

    The Detroit Tigers are calling up outfield prospect Riley Greene on Friday, and he'll make his major league debut on Saturday against the Texas Rangers. In a corresponding move, outfielder Austin Meadows will be placed on the COVID-19 injured list. Greene, the No. 2 overall prospect in baseball per MLB Pipeline, was on his way to making the Opening Day roster before fracturing his foot late in spring training. The 21-year-old hit .279/.347/.382 with a homer, eight RBI and four stolen bases in 17 games for Triple-A Toledo and Single-A Lakeland, and he should see everyday playing time in center field for the Tigers. Grab him immediately in all fantasy leagues if he's available. Meadows recently returned from a bout on the lL due to vertigo, and now he's dealing with COVID. He still hasn't gone deep in 128 at-bats this year and might be a bench player when he returns.

  • Jeimer Candelario To IL, Austin Meadows Activated

    The Detroit Tigers placed infielder Jeimer Candelario (shoulder) on the 10-day injured list on Tuesday with a left shoulder subluxation and reinstated outfielder Austin Meadows (illness) from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Candelario's placement on the IL is retroactive to June 6. Meadows has been out due to symptoms of vertigo, and he went 2-for-13 with a home run on a four-game rehab assignment at Triple-A Toledo. He should return to an everyday starting role in Detroit's outfield. Candelario left the game early on Sunday. The 28-year-old hasn't done much for fantasy managers at the plate this year, slashing .181/.236/.319 with five home runs, 17 RBI and 20 runs scored in 182 at-bats.

  • Austin Meadows Could Return Tuesday

    Detroit Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said that outfielder Austin Meadows (illness) could come off the injured list and join the team against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday, barring any setbacks. Meadows, who has been out since May 16 with symptoms of vertigo, is now symptom-free and hit a home run in a minor league rehab game on Saturday. The Tigers could ease the 27-year-old back into the lineup when he returns, but eventually, Meadows should see regular playing time in the outfield, especially with both Robbie Grossman and Victor Reyes on the shelf. Before going on the injured list, Meadows was slashing .267/.362/.347 with no home runs, 11 RBI and nine runs scored in 101 at-bats.

  • Austin Meadows Hits Homer In Rehab Game

    Detroit Tigers outfielder Austin Meadows (vertigo) launched a solo home run during Saturday's rehab game for Triple-A Toledo. That was the lone hit of the ballgame for Meadows before he was removed for a defensive replacement. The 27-year-old is expected to return to the big league lineup at some point next week. He has missed a few weeks of action due to vertigo symptoms, but appears to be doing better now. He'll likely still play a few more minor league games before returning to Detroit.

  • Austin Meadows Could Return Next Week

    Detroit Tigers outfielder Austin Meadows (illness) won't return for the weekend series against the New York Yankees, but it sounds like he could be activated from the injured list for the short series against the Pittsburgh Pirates from June 7-8. "Getting back into baseball was a little funny for him just because he had hardly done anything for a couple of weeks...He said he felt great, symptom free. He said, 'See you soon.' That's a good sign," skipper A.J. Hinch said. Meadows has been out while experiencing symptoms of vertigo, but he played in his first minor league rehab game with Triple-A Toledo, and his return is on the horizon. The 27-year-old is hitting .267/.362/.347 with no home runs, 11 RBI and nine runs scored in 28 games this year, and he should return to a regular role in Detroit's outfield when he's cleared.

  • Austin Meadows To Start Rehab Assignment Wednesday

    Detroit Tigers outfielder Austin Meadows (illness) will start a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday. Meadows was cleared to resume baseball activities last week while recovering from vertigo. The 27-year-old will likely play multiple rehab games on the farm, but he could return from the injured list during the team's upcoming five-game road trip, which begins on Friday against the New York Yankees. Meadows will play regularly when he returns to the Tigers active roster, and although he has yet to hit a home run, he was slashing a solid .267/.362/.347 with 11 RBI and nine runs scored in 28 games before he was sidelined.

  • Austin Meadows Could Start Rehab Assignment Wednesday

    Detroit Tigers outfielder Austin Meadows (illness) has resumed baseball activities in Florida and could start a minor league rehab assignment as early as Wednesday, according to manager A.J. Hinch. Meadows has been out since May 16 due to vertigo, but it looks like he's getting closer to a return to Detroit. The 27-year-old was relevant in deep mixed fantasy leagues before landing on the injured list, as he was hitting .267/.362/.347 with no home runs, 11 RBI and nine runs scored in 101 at-bats. Hopefully, Meadows returns from his bout with vertigo and can rediscover his power stroke. The Tigers are short-handed in their outfield right now with Meadows, Victor Reyes and Robbie Grossman all on the injured list.
