Detroit Tigers get Austin Meadows, Víctor Reyes back vs. Orioles

The Detroit Tigers’ lineup received a boost in the final game of their series against the Baltimore Orioles, as outfielders Austin Meadows and Víctor Reyes returned to the lineup.

Meadows missed the first two games of the series at Comerica Park while dealing with an inner-ear issue and vertigo symptoms. Reyes was placed on the 10-day injured list on April 23 with a left quad strain before spending a four-game rehab stint with Triple-A Toledo.

Manager AJ Hinch slotted Meadows into right field and the No. 3 spot in the lineup, behind Javier Báez, and Reyes at No. 6, between Jonathan Schoop (third base) and Harold Castro (center field).

“It’s good to be back in there today,” Meadows said before Sunday’s game. “Been a tough week, but, yeah, hopefully I can put this behind me, get out there each and every day and not have any more hiccups.”
