Tigers Outfielder Pulled Off of Rehab Assignment; Rest of Season in Question

Detroit Tigers outfielder Austin Meadows was pulled off of his minor league rehab assignment at Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday. 

He apparently does not feel ready for MLB competition at the moment and will be reevaluated in Detroit later this week. 

The reason for this, is Meadows is apparently feeling renewed soreness in his Achilles.

It's been an injury-plagued Tigers debut for Meadows, who's been out since mid-June due to COVID-19 and bilateral Achilles issues.

The 2022 season appears to be in question here for Austin Meadows, who's only played in 36 games this year due to multiple illnesses and injuries. 

In those 36 games, Meadows has hit .250, with zero home runs and 11 RBIs. 

The Tigers acquired Austin Meadows from the Tampa Bay Rays this past April, sending over infielder Isaac Paredes and a 2022 competitive round-B draft pick (No. 71 overall).
