Manager Terry Francona said Guyer will undergo surgery on his right wrist, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Guyer has been sidelined since mid-September with a wrist issue. While he was hoping to return during Cleveland's postseason run, his injury showed no signs of improving, prompting the Indians to send him for surgery. A timeline for his recovery should become available once the Indians provide further information regarding his status.
Manager Terry Francona said Guyer (wrist) is unlikely to play in the postseason, even if the Indians advance to the World Series, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Guyer hurt his wrist in mid-September, and it appears the ailment will force him to miss out on the playoffs. He appeared in just 70 games this season, compiling a .236/.326/.327 line in 165 at-bats.
Guyer aggravated a wrist injury that forced him to miss six weeks earlier this season and will be shut down for the next week, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports. Guyer's condition will be re-evaluated following a week of no baseball activities, and the club will determine what the next step will be for the 31-year-old. There hasn't been any word on the severity of this setback, but there should be more news pertaining to Guyer's status within the next few days, if not by the end of the next week once he's been examined. The outfielder was out from mid-May until June 26 with a left wrist sprain earlier this year.
Guyer was a last-minute scratch from Thursday's lineup. Guyer was all set to man right field, but the White Sox have scratched lefty Carlos Rodon (shoulder) and will send righty Mike Pelfrey to the mound instead. With that, the Indians swapped out Guyer for Lonnie Chisenhall, who will bat sixth in the order.
Guyer (neck) is starting in left field and hitting seventh in Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader against the Tigers, Zack Meisel of The Athletic Cleveland reports. He left Wednesday's game with a neck strain, but was able to quickly recover. Guyer gets the start against southpaw Matt Boyd in the matinee, but figures to sit in the nightcap against righty Buck Farmer.
