With centerfielders Riley Greene and Derek Hill set to open the season on the disabled list, the Tigers have obtained outfielder Austin Meadows from the Tampa Bay Rays. Meadows was an all star in 2019, when he hit 33 home runs. He missed most of the 2020 season with an oblique injury, and has struggled to return to form. In exchange, the Rays get infielder Isaac Parades, and a compensatory pick between the second and third rounds of this summer’s draft.
The Milwaukee Brewers held off the Colorado Rockies 8-7 last night. Starter Freddy Peralta struggled, giving up five runs on six hits before leaving in the fifth inning. Omar Narváez homered.

Kansas pulled off the biggest comeback in the history of the NCAA men’s basketball championship game last night, and defeated North Carolina 72-69 to take the title. The Jayhawks trailed by as many as 16 points in the first half, and were down by 15 at halftime. An early second-half surge brought them back into the game. The Tar Heels had a chance to force overtime, but Caleb Love’s off-balance three-point attempt missed the mark.
