Austin Meadows Has Started Doing On-Field Work This Week

During the first week of Spring Training, Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Austin Meadows pulled his hamstring rounding first base. The initial expectation was that he would be out through the month of April, making the jump to West Virginia in early May.
