Austin Meadows participating in normal offseason program

Austin Meadows (achilles) is symptom-free and is participating in a normal off-season program.

Fantasy Impact

Meadows had a tough 2022 season due to multiple achilles strains and mental health issues, limiting him to just 36 games. Luckily, it seems as though he is feeling much better and is progressing as normal in preparation for next season. He was an above-average hitter (113 wRC+) in 2021 and could be a decent bounce-back candidate in 2023 if all continues to go well.

Austin Meadows progressing on current rehab assignment

Austin Meadows began a new rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on August 10th. He is going to alternate between the outfield and DH for seven to 10 days before the Tigers evaluate a potential return.

Fantasy Impact

Meadows has not played in a game with the Tigers since June 15th were he began to deal with left and right Achilles strains. The injury has been frustrating for Meadows as he now begins his second rehab assignment after having to be shut down in early July. The hope is that he can return sometime in August as long as he comes out healthy after this rehab assignment.
