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.

Pirates' Austin Meadows: Makes successful return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meadows (oblique) went 3-for-5 with two doubles and an RBI for Triple-A Indianapolis on Wednesday.

Aside from late-inning duty Tuesday, he'd missed the last six days with an oblique injury and that was on top of a hamstring ailment which had kept him sidelined for six-plus weeks. It'd be a big surprise if Meadows earns a September recall, but a strong (and healthy) finish to the Triple-A season could give him a boost heading into the 2018 campaign.
