Meet Austin Meadows’Brother Parker Meadows
Parker Meadows was born on Nov 2, 1999 in Atlanta, GA. He attended the Grayson HS in Loganville, Ga.
Parker Meadows is a Georgia native who comes from a baseball family. Meadows was regarded as a mid-second round talent by the media and the baseball-related scouting industry.
With the first pick in each round, the Tigers fell in love with his athletic abilities and jumped the market on him in 2018, investing the 44th overall pick to bring him into the fold as a high schooler.
Meadows, Parker It’s been a long road for the young outfielder since then. He had a reputation for being extremely raw, even at such a young age, and his minor league stats confirmed that notion.
His first complete pro season was in 2019 with the Class-A West Michigan Whitecaps, where he hit.221/.296/.312, which is 20% below average, according to wRC+.
He can be an above-average fielder now, but he has the speed to improve to an above-average one in the future. As he moves up the ranks, the Tigers have placed him in the middle, where he has the instincts to succeed.
He also has the ability to play in either corner if necessary. It’s not his calling card, but it’s a wonderful ability to have in his back pocket.
