    Austin Meadows will be placed on the COVID-19 injured list Friday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.Meadows was a late scratch from Friday's lineup, and he'll be forced to isolate from the team after testing positive for COVID-19.

    Tigers' Austin Meadows: Rests Thursday

    Austin Meadows is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rangers.Meadows has managed a .185/.290/.259 slash line in his eight starts since returning from a stint on the 10-day injured list earlier this month due to a case of vertigo, but that meager production may actually make him one of the better performers in an anemic Detroit lineup. Even so, Meadows will get some routine maintenance Thursday, as the Detroit Tigers roll out an outfield consisting of Robbie Grossman, Willi Castro and Victor Reyes.

    Tigers' Austin Meadows: Missing weekend series in New York

Hinch said Meadows felt great and was symptom-free following his first rehab game Wednesday with Triple-A Toledo, but the Tigers apparently want him to get in some more work in the minors before bringing him back on the 26-man roster.

    Tigers' Austin Meadows: Reporting to Triple-A for rehab

    Austin Meadows (vertigo) is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment at Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.After he received clearance to resume baseball activities last week at the Detroit Tigers' spring training facility in Florida, Meadows avoided any setbacks in his recovery from vertigo and will now advance to game action. The Tigers will likely want to have Meadows play more than one game in the minors before activating him from the 10-day injured list, but he should be ready to go at some point during Detroit's upcoming five-game, two-city road trip. After the Tigers wrap up their homestand this week, the team will head to New York to begin a series with the Yankees on Friday.

    Tigers' Austin Meadows: Gearing up for rehab assignment

    Austin Meadows (illness) is expected to start his rehab assignment in the coming days, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.Meadows has been away from the team since May 16 while dealing with vertigo, but manager A.J. Hinch believes that he could start a rehab assignment as soon as Wednesday. Prior to heading to the 10-day injured list, the outfielder had produced a .267 average with 11 RBI and nine runs over 101 at-bats, but he has yet to hit a homer this season. The lack of power could have been a result of the vertigo and once healthy, Meadows will look to go deep for the first time in 2022.
