Career Transactions
Selected by Pirates in first round (eighth overall) of 2013 draft
Background
Drafted three picks after Loganville neighbor—they went to different high schools—Clint Frazier, Meadows was considered the top prep hitter in the 2013 class before Frazier passed him by.
What to Watch For
A fractured right orbital bone delayed his 2016 season, but didn't slow him much. Meadows came back on a mission and slugged his way (.611) to Triple-A. He should be ready for the crowded Pirates outfield before too long.
