Naylor went 4-for-4 with a solo homer and an additional run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees in Game 1 of the Wild Card Round. Naylor hit a solo homer in the fourth inning and was the only Indians player to really give Gerrit Cole trouble as he recorded four hits. The 23-year-old slashed .247/.291/.330 throughout the 2020 regular season and will look to contribute Wednesday in Game 2.
Naylor isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Pirates. Naylor went 1-for-4 over the past two games, and he'll get a breather even with a right-hander (Joe Musgrove) on the mound for Pittsburgh. Jordan Luplow will take over in left field Saturday.
Naylor is not in Thursday's lineup against the White Sox. He will head to the bench with southpaw Dallas Keuchel on the hill for Chicago. Oscar Mercado is starting in left field and batting seventh.
Naylor is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the White Sox, Joe Noga of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Naylor typically starts against right-handed pitchers, but he'll head to the bench with an especially tough one (Lucas Giolito) on the bump for Chicago. Jordan Luplow replaces Naylor in left field.
Naylor (leg) is starting in left field and batting eighth Tuesday against the White Sox. He left Monday's game after jamming his leg while sliding into second base, but it was apparently a minor injury. Naylor is hitting .353 with three doubles and more walks (three) than strikeouts (two) over his last 17 at-bats (six games). Cleveland appears committed to getting him semi-regular playing time over the final week.
