  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Back in action Wednesday

    Reyes (personal) is starting Wednesday against the Reds.

    Reyes didn't start Tuesday while tending to a personal matter, but he appeared as a pinch hitter and drew a walk in his lone plate appearance. The 26-year-old will serve as the designated hitter and bat sixth in his return to the lineup Wednesday.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Tending to personal matter

    Reyes is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Reds while he tends to a personal matter, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Reyes was seemingly away from the team when Cleveland posted its lineup earlier Tuesday, but acting manager Carl Willis said he believes the 26-year-old will be available in the dugout as a pinch-hitting option by the time the game begins at 6:10 p.m. ET. As a result, Reyes is expected to be back in the lineup for Wednesday's series finale, a potential off day Tuesday could be beneficial anyway, given that he went 2-for-19 with eight strikeouts over Cleveland's last five games.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Takes seat Tuesday

    Reyes is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Reds, Andre Knott of Bally Sports Ohio reports.

    Richie Palacios will handle designated-hitter duties for the Guardians with Reyes' bat having cooled off after a hot start to May. Since opening the month with a 12-for-23 showing at the plate in his first six starts, Reyes has gone 2-for-19 with three walks against eight strikeouts over his last five games.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Records three hits Sunday

    Reyes went 3-for-4 with a double and a run in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Blue Jays.

    Reyes hit just .135 in April, but he's now in the midst of a six-game hitting streak and has multi-hit performances in four of the last five games. Sunday's matchup was also the first game this year in which the 26-year-old didn't strike out. While Reyes still has a 43.9 percent strikeout rate to begin the season, it's been encouraging to see him generate some production at the plate since the start of May.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Socks third homer

    Reyes went 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in an 8-2 win over the Blue Jays in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader.

    After going 1-for-3 with a walk in the matinee, Reyes crushed a Ross Stripling offering in the third inning of the nightcap for a solo shot before adding an RBI single a couple frames later. Reyes also whiffed three more times across both games, however, and while his current five-game hitting streak is encouraging, his .474 batting average (9-for-19) over that stretch also comes with a 38.1 percent strikeout rate. On the season, the 26-year-old still sports a rough .204/.245/.301 slash line with three homers, 10 RBI and a shocking 4:43 BB:K in 23 contests.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Knocks three hits in win

    Reyes went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Thursday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jays.

    Reyes was ice cold to start the season, but he's starting to find a groove. He's gone 6-for-13 across his last three games while adding three RBI and three runs scored. The 26-year-old lifted his slash line to .184/.220/.253 with two home runs, eight RBI and seven runs scored in 21 contests. He's been hitting fifth or sixth in the order while he attempts to work through his slump.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Not starting Game 1

    Reyes isn't starting the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Padres.

    Reyes snapped his six-game hitless streak Sunday against the Athletics when he went 1-for-5 with two RBI, a run and three strikeouts. However, he'll be out of the lineup for the second time in the last three games during Wednesday's matinee. Owen Miller will serve as the designated hitter while Richie Palacios starts in left field.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Plummets in batting order

    Reyes will serve as the Guardians' designated hitter and No. 7 batter in Tuesday's game against the Padres.

    Reyes made his first 15 starts out of the cleanup spot, but he hit either fifth or sixth in each of his last four starts in light of his poor start to the season. Though he took a small step forward in Sunday's 7-3 win over Oakland by going 1-for-5 with two RBI, he still struck out three times and enters the week with a lowly .139 batting average and .171 on-base average on the campaign. He'll sink in the order yet again Tuesday, and Reyes could frequently find himself in a bottom-third spot in the lineup until he cuts down on his bloated 46.3 percent strikeout rate and begins tapping into more power.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Gets breather Saturday

    Reyes isn't starting Saturday's game against the Athletics.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Gets maintenance day

    Reyes is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Yankees.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Accounts for lone run Friday

    Reyes went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and three strikeouts in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Yankees.

    Reyes got the Guardians on the board with his fourth-inning blast, but that was their lone run of the game. This was Reyes' second homer in as many contests, and he's hit safely in his last three games. The slugger is slashing .196/.226/.314 with two homers, five RBI and four runs scored in 53 plate appearances, but he's also striking out at a 37.7 percent clip.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Swats first homer

    Reyes went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run Thursday against the White Sox.

    Reyes got the Guardians on the board by recording his first home run -- and first extra-base hit -- of the season in the third inning. Two frames later he struck out for the 17th time this year, and he has now punched out at least once in each of his 11 starts. Reyes has gotten off to a dreadful stat across his first 49 plate appearances, though he has a lengthy track record of providing reliable power production, so it is too early to panic.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Takes seat in nightcap

    Reyes isn't starting the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

    Reyes started in the first game of Wednesday's twin bill and went 1-for-4 with a run, a walk and a strikeout. Jose Ramirez will serve as the designated hitter while Gabriel Arias starts at third base.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Takes part in hit brigade

    Reyes went 2-for-6 with a run and an RBI in Sunday's 17-3 win over the Royals.

    Reyes will end up starting all four games of the Guardians' season-opening series in Kansas City, as he's back in the lineup as the team's cleanup hitter Monday. The 26-year-old has gone 3-for-14 with six strikeouts through the Guardians' first three contests.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Avoids arbitration Tuesday

    Reyes agreed Tuesday with the Guardians on a one-year, $4.55 million contract to avoid arbitration, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    Reyes was in his first year of arbitration following a 2021 season in which he hit .254 with 30 home runs and 85 RBI across 466 plate appearances. The Guardians plan to expose him to more work in right field during spring training, but he's still expected to see the bulk of his starts as a designated hitter in 2022.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Will see some time in right field

    Reyes will get time in right field during spring training, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Reyes enters 2022 as the Guardians' obvious choice for designated hitter. With the National League adopting the DH as well, there's no guarantee he'll be needed to play the field very often. Instead, this move keeps the 26-year-old familiar with the outfield -- the Guardians have weaknesses in the lineup at both corner outfield spots. Bradley Zimmer and Oscar Mercado are most likely to open the season in those positions, but Reyes' strong bat figures to be an everyday presence in the lineup after he hit .254/.324/.522 with 30 home runs, 85 RBI, 57 runs scored and four stolen bases in 115 games last season.

  • Indians' Franmil Reyes: Not in Sunday's lineup

    Reyes is out of the lineup Sunday against the Yankees.

    Reyes will receive a well-earned breather after starting the past 13 games and posting a .313/.353/.667 slash line with five homers, 13 RBI and nine runs during that stretch. Jose Ramirez will serve as the designated hitter while Yu Chang starts at the hot corner.
