Austin Meadows has been dealing with a hamstring injury, which has kept him out of practice for the last few days. Meadows told me he hurt the hamstring rounding first base while doing running drills.

The outfielder was sitting out of practice today, and there is no timetable for his return. As of right now he is being held back as a precaution early in camp.

Meadows is one of the big breakout candidates in the Pirates’ system. He was the ninth overall pick in the 2013 draft, and one of the top 50 prospects in a lot of lists. He’s likely to start the year in West Virginia, and with a good 2014 season he could propel himself closer to the top ten prospects in the game by this time next year.

  1. I hope they rest the heck out of his hammy…those things can be nagging if you push it.

  2. I was hoping they would have the lists of players by number out by now . I was over yesterday and watch number 19 ( I think Tyler Glasnow because of his height ) throw live batting practice . He threw a lot of strikes as the coaches were calling them from behind the pitcher . This kid can throw hard and the best the batters could do was hit a few down the right side . Anyway hoping I got the right guy , also got to see Reese Mcquire as he was doing the catching for Number 19 . There could not have been 6 spectators there , was really surprised . Hopefully they will have the lists out soon so you can tell who you are looking at ,
