Austin Meadows Lowered His Hand Position to Add More Power

Ever since he was drafted, Austin Meadows was regarded as a prospect with power that you could dream about. He drew comps to Jay Bruce in the 2013 draft, due to his power potential from a corner outfield spot.

Could Jay Bruce Be A Viable Trade Target?

The Cincinnati Reds were a very interesting team this year. Finishing with their worst record since 2008, the team failed to make the playoffs after reaching the dance in three of the last four seasons.
