Rays' Austin Meadows: Optioned to Durham
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meadows was sent down to Triple-A Durham after being acquired by the Rays on Tuesday, Marc Topkin of The Tampa Bay Times reports.

Meadows will begin his time with Tampa Bay at the Triple-A level after appearing in 49 games for the Pirates this season. During those outings, he slashed .292/.327/.468 with five home runs, 13 RBI and four stolen bases. Since he's clearly exhibited the ability to play in the majors, look for Meadows to join the big-league club in the near future.

Rays' Austin Meadows: Headlines Archer deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meadows was traded from the Pirates to the Rays on Tuesday along with Tyler Glasnow and another unnamed player in exchange for Chris Archer, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

This clearly boosts Meadows' fantasy value, as he was having a hard time getting regular playing time in Pittsburgh, but now profiles as one of the Rays' starting outfielders next to Kevin Kiermaier and Tommy Pham. Meadows, 23, is capable of playing all three outfield spots and is hitting .292/.327/.468 with five home runs and four steals in 165 plate appearances in his brief MLB career. He also only strikes out 21.2 percent of the time, which is a great indicator for a rookie hitter with his tools.

Pirates' Austin Meadows: Back in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meadows was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday.

Corey Dickerson (hamstring) was placed on the disabled list in a corresponding move, but Meadows is not in Saturday's lineup. That said, Meadows will likely start against most righties in the short term, while Jordan Luplow starts in left field against lefties. Dickerson is reportedly dealing with a very mild strain and is eligible to return on Aug. 4. Meadows is hitting .279/.318/.394 with two home runs and 11 steals in 179 plate appearances at Triple-A, but is hitting .298/.333/.477 with five home runs and four steals in 162 plate appearances in the majors.

Pirates' Austin Meadows: Dispatched to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meadows was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

The writing has been on the wall for Meadows' demotion for a while now, as the prized outfield prospect had cracked the lineup just once in the Pirates' last 10 games. Since opening his MLB career with seven multi-hit efforts in 11 games, Meadows has slashed a meager .245/.300/.336 with six extra-base hits in 110 at-bats. He'll aim to get back on track in a full-time role at Triple-A and should be back up with the Pirates later this season.

Pirates' Austin Meadows: Headed to Triple-A?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates may send Meadows, who popped out in a pinch-hitting appearance Friday, back to Triple-A, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.

The rookie outfielder has started only five games in July. "We'll have those discussions internally as we discuss what's best for the player and what's best for the team," manager Clint Hurdle said. "Try to figure some things out here." Meadows is batting .233 with one extra-base hit (a double) and a 0:8 BB:K in 30 at-bats this month. Returning him to Triple-A could help the fiscally conservative organization keep the 22-year-old from becoming Super 2 Arbitration eligible while affording the oft-injured rookie steady playing time.
