Detroit Tigers’ Austin Meadows to miss rest of 2022 for mental health

Detroit Tigers quarterback Austin Meadows will stay away from baseball activities on the field for the remainder of the 2022 season.

Meadows, who has struggled with numerous injuries and illnesses since May, has been at the Tigers for training for the past few weeks and will remain with his teammates when the club plays their home games at Comerica Park.

For mental health reasons, Meadows ended his season with one month left on the schedule.

“He wanted everyone to share what he’s been going through,” said manager AJ Hinch. “I commend him for doing it. I’m so proud of him. It’s not easy in this sport, as an athlete, as a competitor, to admit when you need help outside the normal range of baseball… We give him all the support we can. It’s hard to hear, but I feel.” satisfied with the path he is taking.”
