    PITTSBURGH - A long-awaited prospect is joining the Pirates on Friday. The team announced it recalled outfielder Austin Meadows.

    To make room for Meadows, the team placed outfielder Starling Marte on the 10-day disabled list with a right oblique strain. 

    Meadows, the ninth overall pick in the 2013 draft, has long been considered a top prospect as an outfielder. According to the Pirates, Meadows is hitting .294 with 10 doubles, a home run and 15 RBI with AAA Indianapolis.

    Meadows will wear No. 17 for the Pirates.
