    Hedges went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Friday's 12-8 loss to the Twins.

    Hedges' fifth-inning blast tied the game at 2-2, but the offense was just getting started on both sides. The catcher has been solid in May, going 6-for-24 (.250) with three RBI and three runs scored in seven games. 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.

  • Guardians' Austin Hedges: Swats solo shot

    Hedges went 2-for-3 with a solo home run Thursday in a loss to the Angels.

  • Guardians' Austin Hedges: Homers Saturday

    Hedges went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Yankees.

    Hedges gave the Guardians a one-run lead in the eighth inning, but the Yankees pushed back to walk it off in the ninth. This was the catcher's first long ball of the year. He's slashing a meager .125/.200/.219 with three RBI and four runs scored through 37 plate appearances. Hedges remains a quality defensive catcher, but his offense does little to make a case for him to be rostered in many fantasy formats.

  • Guardians' Austin Hedges: Set to receive $4 million

    Hedges agreed to a one-year, $4 million deal with the Guardians on Tuesday, avoiding arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Hedges will get a decent payday in his final year of arbitration eligibility. He must be getting paid purely for his defense, as he's hit a miserable .174/.236/.307 over the last three seasons.

  • Indians' Austin Hedges: Reaches double-digit homers

    Hedges went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Friday's 9-6 win over Texas.

    The catcher got Cleveland on the board with his third-inning solo shot. Hedges has gone yard twice in his last six games, and he's up to 10 long balls on the year. He's added a .180/.219/.311 slash line with 31 RBI, 32 runs scored and a stolen base in 308 plate appearances. The 29-year-old has split time with Roberto Perez fairly evenly since mid-September.

  • Indians' Austin Hedges: Homers in loss

    Hedges went 1-for-3 with a solo home run during Game 2 of Thursday doubleheader against the White Sox.

    Hedges took Reynaldo Lopez deep with a 367-foot shot in the first game of the twin bill to chase the right-hander. The 29-year-old backstop is now facing limited playing time due to a split role with Roberto Perez, who recently returned from the injured list. Across 83 games, Hedges is batting .176/.218/.300 with nine long balls.

  • Indians' Austin Hedges: Starting Game 1 of twin bill

    Hedges will start at catcher and bat eighth in the first game of Monday's doubleheader with the Royals.

    Since Cleveland brought back Roberto Perez from the injured list last week, Hedges has fallen back into a near-even timeshare at catcher. The two backstops have now alternated starts across the last seven contests, and that trend should continue in the nightcap, when Perez presumably gets the nod over Hedges.

    Hedges has gone 0-for-12 in his last four games and 4-for-35 in his last 10, a span during which he's doubled once and hit two home runs. Ryan Lavarnway is catching and batting eighth Sunday.
