Rays' Austin Meadows: Expected back Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meadows (thumb) is expected to rejoin the Rays on Friday against the Yankees, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Rather than heading out on a rehab assignment, Meadows has been playing in extended spring games. He got through one Tuesday without issues and will play another Wednesday. His return date could be confirmed if he gets through that game unscathed.

Rays' Austin Meadows: Could start rehab soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meadows (thumb) will work out with the Rays on Monday and Tuesday and could begin a short rehab stint soon after, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Meadows has been out with a thumb sprain for two weeks, but his absence may not last too much longer. He hit off a tee Friday and off a pitching machine Saturday. A schedule for his rehab assignment should become clear early next week.

Rays' Austin Meadows: Hitting off tee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meadows (thumb) has started hitting off a tee, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

This marks a step in the right direction for Meadows, who has been sidelined since April 21 with a sprained thumb. According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, the outfielder will take batting practice off a machine Saturday and continue to ramp things up from there. Meadows remains without a timetable for his return at the moment, though one may come into focus after he's reevaluated in Tampa Bay on Monday.

Rays' Austin Meadows: Won't require surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meadows (thumb) will not require surgery and is expected to miss a couple of weeks, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Meadows landed on the injured list prior to Sunday's series finale against the Red Sox with a right thumb sprain, and after visiting a hand specialist Monday, it was confirmed that the outfielder avoided ligament damage and likely won't be sidelined much longer than the minimum amount of time. This is encouraging news for the Rays, as the 23-year-old had gotten off to a strong start before suffering the injury (.352/.422/.676 with six homers and three stolen bases through 20 games). In the meantime, Avisail Garcia, who is starting in right field Monday, is the leading candidate to fill in for Meadows in the outfield.

Rays' Austin Meadows: Team hoping for short absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Erik Neander said Monday that "hopefully we're talking a few weeks" regarding a timeline for Meadows' (thumb) return from the 10-day injured list, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Meadows was surprisingly placed on the 10-day injured list ahead of Sunday's loss to the Red Sox with a right thumb sprain. At that time of the transaction, the Rays weren't willing to speculate on how much time the outfielder would miss, but Neander's comments suggest the organization is optimistic Meadows has avoided ligament damage and won't be sidelined much longer than the minimum amount of time. Guillermo Heredia entered the starting nine in Meadows' stead Sunday, but Avisail Garcia could end up being the primary replacement for the 23-year-old. Garcia has mostly been used as the team's designated hitter of late, but utility man Joey Wendle's recent return from the IL might create more of need for Garcia in the outfield moving forward.
