    Guardians' Daniel Johnson: Clears waivers

    The Cleveland Guardians outrighted Daniel Johnson to Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday.Though Johnson was once a prospect of some repute, his underwhelming body of work across various stints in the big leagues the past two seasons likely played a factor in him going unclaimed off waivers after he was recently booted off the Guardians' 40-man roster. He'll thus remain in Cleveland's organization heading into 2022, but his lack of a 40-man spot could make it difficult for him to resurface at the big-league level. The lefty-hitting outfielder owns a .202/.245/.337 slash line (52 wRC+) across 94 career plate appearances with Cleveland.

    Indians' Daniel Johnson: Takes seat in Ramirez's return

    Daniel Johnson is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Royals.Johnson will head to the bench after he went hitless in seven at-bats while starting in each of the past three games. Though he recently appeared to have leapfrogged Oscar Mercado on Cleveland's depth chart in left field, Johnson's path to regular at-bats versus right-handed pitching may be blocked after Harold Ramirez (knee) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

    Indians' Daniel Johnson: Playing time picking up

    Daniel Johnson will start in left field and bat eighth Sunday against the Red Sox.Included in the starting nine for the third time in four games, Johnson may have usurped the struggling Oscar Mercado as Cleveland's primary option in left field. The lefty-hitting Johnson will still likely find himself on the bench frequently against left-handed pitching, with the righty-hitting Mercado serving as a short-side platoon mate.

    Indians' Daniel Johnson: Goes yard Tuesday

    Daniel Johnson went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk Tuesday against the Rangers.Johnson has only 12 plate appearances since being recalled Aug. 16. However, he's taken advantage by logging two home runs and also tacking on two multi-hit performances across three starts. Despite the strong effort in the limited sample, Johnson isn't likely to see an uptick in playing time anytime soon as Harold Ramirez (knee) began a rehab assignment Tuesday and could return in short order.

    Cleveland optioned Daniel Johnson to Triple-A Columbus on Monday, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.Johnson had started in only one of Cleveland's last four games, as the club's recent acquisition of Myles Straw from the Astros had seemingly bumped the 26-year-old down a peg in the outfield pecking order. During his three-plus-week stint in the big leagues, Johnson appeared in 15 games and slashed .257/.278/.429.
