The Tigers placed Meadows (vertigo) on the 10-day injured list Monday. Manager A.J. Hinch already noted after Sunday's win over the Orioles that Meadows and fellow outfielder Victor Reyes (quadriceps) were ticketed for the IL, but the Tigers waited a day to make the transactions official. Daz Cameron was called up from Triple-A Toledo to help restore some depth in the outfield, but the Tigers are likely to proceed with Robbie Grossman, Willi Castro and Derek Hill as their everyday outfielders while Meadows is sidelined.
Meadows is being placed on the 10-day injured list after he experienced dizziness, light-headedness and nausea during Sunday's game against the Orioles, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. The 26-year-old sat out the past couple days after experiencing dizziness stemming from an inner-ear infection, and his return to the lineup Sunday lasted only one inning before being removed. Given the nature of his issues, it's unclear exactly how long Meadows will be sidelined, though he'll be eligible to be activated May 26.
Meadows (illness) was removed from Sunday's game against the Orioles after the first inning, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. The 27-year-old has been experiencing dizziness the past couple days due to an inner-ear infection, and his return to the lineup Sunday lasted just a single inning. Meadows should be considered day-to-day heading into Monday's series opener in Tampa Bay.
Meadows (illness) is starting in right field and hitting third Sunday against the Orioles. An ear infection caused him to miss Friday and Saturday, but he's back on the expected timetable for the final game of this series. It's a nice matchup for Meadows against righty Tyler Wells. After a hot first week, Meadows is hitting .215/.311/.291 with zero home runs, nine walks and nine strikeouts over his last 22 games.
Meadows (illness) will be back in the lineup for Sunday's game against Baltimore, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports. Meadows has sat for two straight games due to dizziness stemming from an inner-ear infection. He's apparently nearly past the problem, however, and should be good to go for the series finale.
