Pirates' Austin Meadows: Not yet ready for prime time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meadows is expected to start the season with Triple-A Indianapolis, Rob Biertempfel of the Athletic reports.

With only 457 plate appearances at the Triple-A level, it's no surprise that the outfielder is ticketed for the minors. The 22-year-old has played in only 168 games the last two seasons and hasn't looked great when healthy. He slashed .250/.311/.359 in 284 Triple-A at-bats last summer. That said, he's in position to make his major-league debut at some point in 2018, provided he can stay healthy and produce for Indy.

Pirates' Austin Meadows: Protected from Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meadows (oblique) was added to the Pirates' 40-man roster Monday.

As expected, the move was made to protect Meadows -- who is viewed as the team's top prospect -- from the Rule 5 draft. He's coming off a disappointing 2017 campaign during which he hit just .250/.311/.359 in 72 games for Triple-A Indianapolis. He also dealt with hamstring and oblique injuries that limited him. The highly-touted prospect should compete for a spot on the Pirates' Opening Day roster, though the team may opt to start him out at Indianapolis once again.

Pirates' Austin Meadows: Moved to 7-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meadows (oblique) was placed on the 7-day disabled list at Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday.

The roster move effectively ends Meadows' season, marking the second straight year that an oblique strain cost him time in September. Even if health hadn't been a factor, it's uncertain if Meadows would have received a September callup to the Pirates, as he had hit a tepid .250/.311/.359 over 312 plate appearances with Indianapolis before being shut down with the injury.

Pirates' Austin Meadows: Unable to stay healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meadows left Sunday's game after aggravating an oblique injury, Pirates Prospects reports.

The outfielder could miss additional playing time due to the injury. "I wouldn't say it's serious, but I would say we're going to probably take a little harder look at it than we did last time," Indianapolis manager Andy Barkett said. Meadows had six hits in 15 at-bats since returning from the disabled list. The organization is looking into winter ball for the oft-injured prospect.

Pirates' Austin Meadows: Not in line for September call-up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Sunday that Meadows wouldn't be included among the team's September call-ups, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Though the Pirates are down an everyday outfielder in Gregory Polanco (hamstring) and lost his primary replacement, Adam Frazier, to a hamstring injury in Sunday's game against the Reds, there doesn't seem to be any momentum to start Meadows' service clock. Widely regarded as the Pirates' top prospect, Meadows has submitted a lackluster campaign with Triple-A Indianapolis, hitting .250 with 23 extra-base hits in 312 plate appearances. The Pirates may want to see him experience more success at the Triple-A level before giving him his first taste of the big leagues.
