One of the primary reasons the Tampa Bay Rays are contending for a playoff spot is the trade of Chris Archer to the Pittsburgh Pirates last year.
Said deal brought them three stud youngsters, including All-Star outfielder Austin Meadows.
Just ask Chicago White Sox outfielder Leury Garcia how good Meadows is. Garcia thought he had dropped in a hit during Saturday’s game.
Meadows had different ideas and put up one of the best diving catches you’ll ever see.
That really is some next-level stuff from Mr. Meadows right there. Meadows came completely out of nowhere to make that play. In fact, it sure looked like second baseman Joey Wendle had a better chance at it.
Meadows, 24, entered Saturday’s action hitting a robust .289 to go with 15 homers and 49 RBI on the season. He’s also apparently a magician in the outfield.
