Parker Meadows

23-Year-Old OutfielderOF
Detroit Tigers AAA
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Given that he is on the 40-man roster and entering his age-23 season, we should focus on what Meadows did as a high-pedigree, age-appropriate hitter in 489 plate appearances at Double-A. He had by far the best strikeout (18.4%) and walk (10.6%) rates of his career while playing quality center field defense and flirted with a 20/20 season (16-HR/17-SB). Prior to 2022, it seemed like Meadows' hit tool was going to be too mediocre for him to make it as a big-league regular (hits left-handed), but last season keeps hope alive that he can get there. He could debut later in the summer if it looks like he doesn't have much to gain by staying at Triple-A, but Meadows probably won't be ready from a skill standpoint to help out in deeper leagues until 2024.

Hits fifth spring home run

March 26, 2023
Meadows went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Blue Jays.
ANALYSIS
Meadows was optioned to Triple-A Toledo back on March 14, but he continues to impress against MLB pitching. The 23-year-old is batting .317 this spring with a robust 1.134 OPS and five home runs across 21 Grapefruit League contests. Meadows is one of the Tigers' top prospects, and he could join his older brother Austin Meadows in Detroit sometime later this season.
