6 Detroit Tigers prospects who could land on top 100 lists
Detroit Tigers Potential Top-100 Prospect – Parker Meadows
Just last week we took an extended look at Parker Meadows having a potential breakout, so we don’t need to rehash too much here. Meadows has always been blessed with athleticism, but until this year he hasn’t been able to make consistent hard contact. He had a total of 50 extra-base hits over his two full seasons in pro ball, spanning 223 games. But he has turned that around in a big way so far this year, with nine extra-base hits in nine games, and an early award for Midwest League Player of the Week.
Meadows is age appropriate for the level (22), and while he still needs to refine aspects of his game, he has the tools to be a plus defensive center fielder and he’s back to flashing 20-20 potential on offense. That’s absolutely a recipe for a top-100 prospect, provided he continues to perform this year. Former Cleveland center fielder Bradley Zimmer is the player to whom Parker Meadows has been most often compared, and Zimmer spent multiple years as a top-100 prospect.
