LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) — The Detroit Tigers have acquired outfielder Austin Meadows in a trade with the Tampa Bay Rays.

Detroit sent infielder Isaac Paredes and a competitive balance round B pick in the 2022 amateur draft to Tampa Bay.

Meadows hit .234 with 27 homers and a career-high 106 RBIs last season.

Detroit is much improved after going 77-85 last year in its fifth consecutive losing season.

Meadows joins a lineup that includes Javier Báez, who signed a blockbuster deal with the Tigers in free agency, and Spencer Torkelson, one of the majors’ top slugging prospects.
