Pirates top prospect Austin Meadows getting major-league ‘vibe’ | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

It’s always tough making judgments on the outside but Andrew McCutchen seems like a really good guy.

“McCutchen told him, ‘Trust the process,’ “ Meadows’ father, Kenny, recalled. “Austin took that to heart. A lot of kids coming out of high school think they’re going to go right to the big leagues.”

Meadows, 21, isn’t there yet, but he’s no longer so far off. A non-roster invitee at major league camp this spring, he’s taken advantage of the extra at-bats available in the absence of McCutchen, Starling Marte and Gregory Polanco, who are away at the World Baseball Classic.
