2023 Player Outlook
Very simple – the 2022 season was one to forget for Austin Meadows. The veteran who was traded to the Tigers for Isaac Paredes before last season was just unlucky as he played in only 36 games with injuries to his Achilles in both legs, COVID-19, vertigo issues, and mental health. Meadows slashed he slashed .250/.347/.328 (101 wRC+) without a home run but there were some promising signs that his brief season wasn’t quite as bad as it looked. He cut his typical strikeout rate in half and maintained an excellent eye, walking nearly as much as he struck out. Austin Meadows isn’t through yet and if he can put his mental health issues behind him his upside is very high for 2023.
