Meadows reported to spring training having lost 10-15 pounds in his offseason training program and has caught the eye of manager Kevin Cash, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports. "I just feel good," Meadows said. "I got after it pretty hard this offseason," Meadows said. "Just to kind of go back to that form, back to that feeling that I'm light on my feet and I'm quick.

February 25, 2021
Moustakas reported to spring training fully healthy after having a season marred by multiple issues, including a quadriceps bruise, a foot contusion and a false-positive COVID test, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. "It definitely factored into it. I'm not going to be one to sit here and make excuses for my performance on the field," Moustakas said. "If I'm on the field, that means in my mind that I'm 100 percent ready to go. Last year, I didn't play as well as I wanted to play and I think that goes from offensively, top to bottom. We didn't do as well as we wanted to do offensively."
