  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Handling Triple-A

    Meadows is slashing .276/.377/.520 with seven home runs, 13 steals and a 20.5 percent strikeout rate in 151 plate appearances for Triple-A Toledo.

    Meadows flopped after making the team as the everyday center fielder to start the season, slashing .096/.224/.219 with a 37.6 percent strikeout rate in 32 games before being optioned to Triple-A on May 6. He doesn't turn 25 until November and is hitting the ball pretty hard (33.0 Hard%) while making contact at an acceptable 75.6 percent clip since being sent to Triple-A for a reset. Wenceel Perez has a .512 OPS over his last 20 games with the big club, and Meadows is a superior defender to Perez, so perhaps Detroit could look to make a roster move in the coming days/weeks.

  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Headed to Triple-A

    The Tigers informed Meadows after Monday's game against the Guardians that he'll be optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Meadows has seen only three at-bats in May after going 6-for-60 over 25 games in April, and Detroit has finally seen enough. Ryan Vilade is expected to be recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Remains on bench Friday

    Meadows is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Yankees, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Meadows has gone 3-for-28 (.107) over his past 11 games and will sit Friday for the third time in Detroit's past six contests. Wenceel Perez appears to have claimed an everyday role and will start in center field against New York righty Marcus Stroman.

  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Sits against right-hander again

    Meadows is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    The lefty-hitting Meadows finds himself on the bench against a right-handed pitcher for the second time in five games and could soon find himself back with Triple-A Toledo, given his rough start to the season. Even after reaching base three times in the Tigers' 11-6 win in the second game of a doubleheader Tuesday, Meadows is slashing a deplorable .100/.222/.229 through 81 plate appearances on the season. Wenceel Perez will draw the start in center field Wednesday and could end up unseating Meadows for an everyday spot in the lineup.

  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Sitting against righty

    Meadows is not in the Tigers' starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Royals.

    Meadows will get a rest day Saturday after starting in each of the Tigers' last seven games. He has struggled over that span, going 2-for-24 with three runs and a solo home run while striking out 12 times. The switch-hitting Wenceel Perez will start at center field Saturday and bat third against Royals right-hander Brady Singer.

  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Goes deep in victory

    Meadows went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's win over the Rays.

    Meadows connected with a Zack Littell slider to launch a mammoth 427-foot homer in the sixth inning. However, it was the only bright spot in the 24-year-old's evening as he struck out in his three other plate appearances. Despite a .093/.222/.241 slash line over 63 plate appearances this season, Meadows continues to get regular playing time in the Detroit outfield as a strong-side platoon player. Until he can string together more hits, he's best left on the fantasy waiver wire.

  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Out against righty

    Meadows is absent from the lineup for Thursday's game versus the Rangers, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    The Rangers are starting right-hander Jack Leiter, but the left-handed-hitting Meadows will nonetheless begin the series finale on the bench. Meadows has gone just 3-for-39 to begin the season, although he did pop his first home run Wednesday. Matt Vierling will start in center field Thursday.

  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Hits first homer of 2024

    Meadows went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Rangers.

    Meadows has really been struggling to start the season, as he's still batting just .077, and the outfielder had started to see his playing time dip a bit. He was moved down to eighth in the order Wednesday, and perhaps a lower lineup spot could help take some pressure off. Meadows has the talent to get rolling, though fantasy managers will want to see the 24-year-old string together a few more good games before feeling too confident.

  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Out again against right-hander

    Meadows is not in the lineup for Monday's contest against the Rangers.

    It marks the second time in the last three games that the left-handed hitting Meadows has been out of the lineup, and both times it was versus a right-hander. The 24-year-old is off to a dreadful 2-for-33 start this season and could be seeing his starting job in center field slip away if he doesn't right the ship in a hurry. Matt Vierling is in center Monday.

  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Sitting down for Game 2

    Meadows isn't in the Tigers' lineup for the second game of Saturday's twin bill against Minnesota.

    Meadows went 0-for-2 during the Tigers' first game Saturday before being pinch hit for in the seventh inning. Wenceel Perez will replace Meadows in center field for the nightcap and bat seventh.

  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Hitting seventh Friday

    Meadows is starting in center field and batting seventh Friday against the Twins.

    The 24-year-old had hit out of the leadoff spot in all seven of Detroit's games against a right-handed starter this season, but he's begun the campaign in a 2-for-25 slump and is being dropped down the order. It appears Meadows will retain the starting job in center field for now, but he'll likely need to get his bat on track soon in order to keep the role. Riley Greene will move atop the lineup Friday for Detroit.

  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Sitting versus lefty

    Meadows is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Pirates, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

    The Pirates are sending left-hander Martin Perez to the hill, so the lefty-hitting Meadows will take a seat. Matt Vierling is getting a start in center field.

  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Swipes first bag of season

    Meadows went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Saturday's 4-0 loss to the A's.

    Detroit managed only five hits on the day and never got a runner past second base, but Meadows was one of them after he led off the sixth inning with a single then swiped his first bag of the season. The 24-year-old outfielder has had a bumpy start to his 2024, going just 2-for-21 (.095) with a 5:7 BB:K, but he continues to hit leadoff against right-handers as the Tigers show patience with him.

  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Sitting against lefty

    Meadows is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Mets.

    The lefty-hitting Meadows will take a seat Monday with the Mets bringing southpaw Sean Manaea to the hill for the series opener. Meadows started all three games of the Tigers' season-opening sweep of the White Sox, going 1-for-10 with a triple, two walks and one run.

  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Impressing so far this spring

    Meadows went 1-for-3 with a double in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Orioles and is now batting .350 this spring with a 1.131 OPS.

    Meadows has been on a tear, recording two home runs and two doubles across eight games this spring. The young outfielder appears to be Detroit's top option in center, and after an up-and-down first 37 games in 2023, Meadows may be ready for a breakout in his first full season at the MLB level in 2024.
