  • Guardians' Austin Hedges: Goes on concussion IL

    The Guardians placed Hedges on the 7-day concussion injured list Tuesday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

    The head injury likely explains why Hedges was withheld from the lineup for back-to-back games Sunday and Monday, even though he's operated as the Guardians' No. 1 backstop throughout the season. Cleveland acquired Sandy Leon from Cincinnati on Tuesday to add some depth behind the plate while Hedges is sidelined, but Luke Maile will likely serve as the Guardians' primary backstop in the short term.

  • Guardians' Austin Hedges: Not starting Monday

    Hedges will sit Monday against Minnesota.

    Hedges finds himself on the bench for the second game in a row. His .494 OPS makes it hard to justify his everyday role, though Luke Maile, who starts again Monday, has a similarly uninspiring .572 OPS and doesn't share Hedges' defensive reputation, so a permanent change to the depth chart seems unlikely.

  • Guardians' Austin Hedges: Goes deep Wednesday

    Hedges went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in Wednesday's 11-10 win over the Twins.

    Hedges had gone 0-for-7 in his last three games, but he was able to snap the skid with a fifth-inning blast to left field. This was the catcher's first extra-base hit in June, and he's gone 7-for-36 (.194) this month. That's actually an improvement given his season slash line of .165/.225/.281 with five homers, 15 RBI, 13 runs scored and a stolen base in 47 contests overall.

  • Guardians' Austin Hedges: Not in Friday's lineup

    Hedges will sit Friday against the Dodgers.

    Hedges hits the bench for the second time in three games. He's slashing an anemic .172/.226/273 on the year and hasn't posted a batting average above .200 since 2018 but has nonetheless started 40 of Cleveland's first 60 games behind the plate. Luke Maile will get the nod this time around.

  • Guardians' Austin Hedges: Tending to hip issue

    Hedges was held out of the lineup for the final two games of the Guardians' weekend series with the Orioles after tweaking his left hip late in Friday's 6-3 win, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.

    After receiving Saturday off, Hedges was expected to be ready to go for Sunday's series finale, but the Guardians opted to give him an extra day off to heal up. Cleveland hasn't added another catcher to the active roster as insurance, so Hedges appears likely to avoid a trip to the injured list. The Guardians return to action Monday against the Rangers.

Overall, he owns a .176/.238/.297 slash line with three homers, seven RBI, eight runs scored and a stolen base in 82 plate appearances.
