Austin Meadows leading off in Game 2 of ALDS

Meadows is serving as the Rays' DH for this one. He was held off the team's Wild Card Round roster due to a lingering oblique injury, and he wasn't in the lineup for Game 1. Meadows wound up pinch-hitting, however, and he'll look to jump start the Tampa Bay offense against Yankee rookie Deivi Garcia.
