  • Austin Meadows: Let go by Detroit

    Meadows (personal) was non-tendered by the Tigers on Friday.

    Meadows appeared in only six games for Detroit in 2023 -- none after the first week of April -- because of anxiety issues. It's unclear what the future holds for the 28-year-old outfielder.

  • Tigers' Austin Meadows: No contact with team

    Tigers president of baseball operations Scott Harris said Monday that he hasn't talked with Meadows (personal) "in a few months," Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Meadows hasn't played anywhere since early April, as he's been away from the team for several months while dealing with anxiety. "We're going to explore what the path forward is," Harris said. "I don't have any answers on that. I hope he's doing well. I've got to reconnect with him. That's going to be a priority for us in October." Meadows is eligible for salary arbitration for a final time this offseason but seems likely to be non-tendered. He will turn 29 in May.

  • Tigers' Austin Meadows: Will not return this season

    Meadows (personal) will not return to the Tigers this season, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

    Meadows has been on the injured list since early April due to anxiety. He's been away from the team for the last several months, and there's no longer time for him to ramp back into game shape.

  • Tigers' Austin Meadows: Still no baseball activity

    Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said Saturday that Meadows (personal) continues to receive treatment for his anxiety and has yet to resume baseball activities, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    The 28-year-old has been sidelined since early April and remains without a timeline for his return. Meadows will likely need a lengthy buildup period and rehab assignment once he's taking part in baseball work, so he likely won't be back this season until September, if at all.

  • Tigers' Austin Meadows: Still without timetable

    Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said Thursday that Meadows (personal) is continuing his treatment in Florida, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Meadows has been on the injured list since April 7 while dealing with anxiety and was staying in Detroit prior to the Tigers' last road trip. It remains unknown when Meadows will return, but it's possible the Tigers opt to send him on a rehab assignment before bringing him back on the big-league roster.

  • Tigers' Austin Meadows: Moves to 60-day IL

    The Tigers transferred Meadows (personal) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Monday, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    Meadows has been on the IL since April 7 while dealing with anxiety, and there's no timetable for when the outfielder will return to the club. At the very least, Meadows' move to the IL ensures that he won't be back in action with the Tigers until the second week of June. The transaction clears a spot on the 40-man roster for reliever Braden Bristo, whom Detroit claimed off waivers from Tampa Bay.

  • Tigers' Austin Meadows: Participates in team workout

    Meadows (anxiety) was at Comerica Park on Friday for an on-field workout with his teammates, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Meadows went on the 10-day injured list last weekend due to anxiety and it's unclear when he might feel ready to return to live games, but Tigers manager A.J. Hinch was encouraged by his presence. "We'll continue to monitor his progress and see what's next for him," Hinch said Friday. "We don't have a plan set in place, other than this is a good sign that he's able to get back to the ballpark and get some baseball work done."

  • Tigers' Austin Meadows: Stepping away with anxiety

    Meadows was placed on the 10-day injured list by the Tigers on Saturday with anxiety.

  • Tigers' Austin Meadows: Taking seat Tuesday

    Meadows out of the lineup for Tuesday's game in Houston.

    The lefty-hitting Meadows had started each of his team's first four games but will take a seat Tuesday as the Astros bring left-hander Framber Valdez to the hill. Eric Haase replaces Meadows in left field.

  • Tigers' Austin Meadows: Tallies three hits Opening Day

    Meadows went 3-for-4 with a double in Thursday's 4-0 loss to the Rays.

    Meadows had half of Detroit's hits as Shane McClanahan mostly cruised through the lineup. The Tigers may struggle all season to generate offense, which could limit the fantasy upside of Meadows. Still, it's good to see the outfielder get off to a strong start, and he may be able to move up in the order in the near future after hitting sixth on Thursday.
