MLB.com’s Jim Callis came out with his list of the Top 20 prospects in the Arizona Fall League, and has Austin Meadows ranked second best.
Meadows right now is the Pirates #2 prospect in the system according to MLBPipeline.com. The 20-year-old outfielder played for both High A Bradenton and AA Altoona this year where he combined to hit .310 along with a .781 OPS in 127 games. Despite Meadows posting just a .502 OPS in the AFL, scouts have still been very impressed with his skill set. During the AFL Fall Star Game a few weeks ago, Callis made mention on the broadcast that he considered Meadows the best all-around hitter in the AFL, so it’s not really a surprise that he was placed that high in the rankings.
