Sep 3, 2022

Injuries, COVID, and rehabbing from said injuries have kept Detroit Tigers' Austin Meadows off the field for most of the season.

But on Friday, he opened up about one more reason that's kept him from playing.

The outfielder tweeted on Friday that he has been struggling with his mental health.

"This season has been an unfortunate struggle with a series of injuries and illness … What I have told very few people is that I also have been struggling with my mental health in a way that has extended my time away from the game that I love so much," Meadows said in his first tweet since Feb. 13, 2021.
