No, Austin Meadows is not getting called up in Marte’s spot
Following the 80 game suspension of Starling Marte for PED use, fans are clamoring for the Pirates top outfield prospect Austin Meadows. Stop it.
Pirates OFs ABs in AA/AAA before callup: Marte (924), McCutchen (1304), Polanco (526). Meadows has 355 currently.

Aside from his extremely small number of AAA at bats, Meadows is not hitting well. He has a disappointing .162 batting average so far in Indianapolis, with 10 strikeouts and just six hits.
