  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Out against righty

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

  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Likely to stick in center

    Meadows appears likely to be Detroit's everyday center fielder to begin 2024, with Riley Greene (elbow) shifting to a corner spot, Evan Woodbery of reports.

    The team likes what Meadows gives them defensively in center, so Greene, who is coming back from Tommy John surgery, will probably play most days in right. Offseason addition Mark Canha will then probably take left, with Matt Vierling and Akil Baddoo around to provide depth. Meadows flashed some potential as a rookie in 2023, notably swiping eight bags in 37 games. However, he'll need to improve upon his .699 OPS if he wants to make a larger fantasy impact in his first full season.

  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Goes deep Tuesday

    Meadows went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Royals.

    Meadows provided a jolt from the leadoff spot, hitting his second home run of the month and third of his young career. The 23-year-old outfielder now has consecutive two-hit efforts and is batting .290 over his last 10 games. For the season, Meadows is hitting .223 with a .700 OPS.

  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Goes yard Tuesday

    Meadows went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Dodgers.

    Meadows' third-inning blast gave the Tigers a 2-0 lead, but their offense was limited to four hits and a walk over the final six innings of the game. Meadows has gone 4-for-16 (.250) over his last six contests. The rookie outfielder is batting .200 with two homers, nine RBI, 11 runs scored and five stolen bases through his first 101 plate appearances in the majors.

  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Sitting against southpaw

    Meadows is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Angels.

    Meadows will sit with lefty Tyler Anderson on the mound for the Angels. He's struggled across his last 10 games, collecting only two hits across 30 at-bats paired with a 24.3 percent strikeout rate. Matt Vierling will shift to the outfield to cover for Meadows' absence, while Tyler Nevin enters the lineup and will play third base.

It was the rookie's first career three-hit game, and he's off to a great start overall with a .333 batting average and .994 OPS through eight appearances. Meadows figures to remain a regular in center field the rest of the way as the Tigers focus on his development heading into 2024.

  • Tigers' Parker Meadows: Cranks walk-off home run

    Meadows went 1-for-2 with a walk-off, three-run home run and two walks in Friday's 4-1 victory over the Astros.

    The Tigers tied the game with three straight singles off Houston closer Ryan Pressly before Meadows delivered the knockout blow with his first major-league home run. They were also the first three RBI of his brief big-league career in his fourth game for Detroit. The rookie outfielder has reached base eight times in those four contests.
