  • Cubs' Franmil Reyes: Hitting fifth in Cubs debut

    The Cubs activated Reyes, and he'll serve as Chicago's designated hitter and No. 5 batter in Tuesday's game against the Nationals, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

    After getting scooped up off waivers from the Guardians on Monday, Reyes was formally added to the 26-man active roster with the Cubs optioning Frank Schwindel to Triple-A Iowa in a corresponding move. The 27-year-old delivered a disappointing .604 OPS over 280 plate appearances with the Guardians this season, but the Cubs should give him a long look to see if the change of scenery can help him unlock the power production he delivered in past years.

  • Cubs' Franmil Reyes: Expected to join big club Tuesday

    The Cubs are expected to add Reyes to the 26-man active roster in advance of Tuesday's game against the Nationals, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Chicago already seemingly cleared a spot on the roster for Reyes by optioning Frank Schwindel to Triple-A Iowa following the Cubs' 6-3 win in the series opener Monday. Patrick Wisdom will likely take over as the regular first baseman in Schwindel's stead, while Reyes should fill the vacancy in the everyday lineup at designated hitter. Though Reyes slashed an uninspiring .213/.254/.350 over 280 plate appearances in the majors this season with the Guardians before being designated for assignment last weekend, he's still just 27 years old and posted OPS marks north of .770 in each of his first four big-league campaigns. The rebuilding Cubs should give Reyes every chance over the final two months of the season to prove he belongs in the team's long-term plans.

  • Cubs' Franmil Reyes: Claimed by Cubs

    Reyes was claimed off waivers by the Cubs on Monday, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

    After being designated for assignment by the Guardians on Saturday, Reyes has found a new home in Chicago. The 27-year-old has struggled to a .213/.254/.350 slash line this year over 263 at-bats in 70 games this year, all of which are the lowest marks of his five-year career. It's unclear whether he will report to Triple-A Iowa with his new organization or join the big-league roster, as he still has two minor-league options remaining. With 101 career homers over 481 games, Reyes possesses superb power and could be a mainstay in the Cubs lineup if he can return to form down the stretch and into next season.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Designated for assignment

    Reyes was designated for assignment by the Guardians on Saturday.

    Reyes' prodigious power had been more than enough to offset his contact issues over his first four years in the league, but everything fell apart for him this season. In 70 games, he hit just .213/.254/.350 with nine homers as his strikeout rate jumped to an untenable 37.1 percent. He lost his spot on the active roster Tuesday and will be removed from the 40-man roster four days later, though his past success could make him an interesting reclamation project for a different organization.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Officially sent to minors

    Reyes was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday.

    Reyes cleaned out his locker after Monday's win over Arizona and has now been officially sent to Triple-A. The 27-year-old has a .213/.254/.350 slash line with nine home runs and 28 RBI in 280 plate appearances this year, so the demotion is well warranted. Oscar Gonzalez (intercostal) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Likely to be optioned

    Reyes is expected to be optioned to Triple-A Columbus prior to Tuesday's game, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    Reyes was seen cleaning out his locker after Monday's win over the Diamondbacks. Perhaps he's traded prior to Tuesday's deadline and remains in the big leagues with another organization, but either way, the 27-year-old will be off the Guardians' 26-man active roster, at least for the time being. Oscar Gonzalez (intercostal) appears close to returning from the injured list for Cleveland.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Records rare steal

    Reyes went 1-for-5 with a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Rays.

    Reyes isn't known for his speed, but he singled, moved to second on an Andres Gimenez walk, stole third and scored on an Austin Hedges single in the fifth inning. Both of Reyes' steals this season have come in July, a month in which the designated hitter batted .230 (23-for-100) with nine extra-base hits, 12 RBI and 12 runs scored. For the season, he's slashing .214/.254/.351 with nine home runs, 28 RBI, 24 runs scored and nine doubles in 279 plate appearances.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Three hits, steal in win

    Reyes went 3-for-4 with an RBI, a stolen base and two runs scored in Monday's 8-4 win over the White Sox.

    Reyes had not attempted a steal this season prior to Monday when he stole second after a sixth-inning single. The 27-year-old doesn't have a lot of speed in his game -- he's more of a slugger, though he's also struggled in that area this year. Reyes owns a .222/.266/.377 slash line with eight home runs, 26 RBI and 20 runs scored through 222 plate appearances. He's recorded multiple hits in four of 11 games in July, batting .289 (13-for-45) this month.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Bashes homer in loss

    Reyes went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Royals.

    Reyes continues to mash in July -- he already has four homers in eight games this month. He's added eight RBI, six runs scored and two doubles while reclaiming a near-everyday role in the lineup. For the season, the designated hitter is batting .212/.260/.373 with eight long balls, 24 RBI, 18 runs scored and seven doubles in 51 contests.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Slugs seventh homer

    Reyes went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Wednesday against the Tigers.

    Reyes took Michael Pineda yard in the second inning to record his seventh homer of the season. After going deep only four times across his first 43 games of the campaign, Reyes has recorded three home runs in his last seven starts. Despite showing some signs of life at the plate, Reyes is still hitting just .212/.260/.360 across 204 plate appearances for the season.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Accounts for offense in win

    Reyes went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an RBI single in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Yankees.

    Reyes gave Guardians starter Triston McKenzie all the support he needed with a fourth-inning solo shot. In the eighth, Reyes added an RBI single for insurance. The designated hitter has gone 11-for-41 (.268) in 11 games since returning from a hamstring injury, and six of his hits in that span have gone for extra bases. He's up to a .213/.266/.345 slash line with six homers, 19 RBI and 14 runs scored in 188 plate appearances, and he should continue to hit in the heart of the order.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Launches homer Saturday

    Reyes went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a 13-4 loss to the Yankees in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader.

    Reyes went back-to-back with Josh Naylor in the second inning, but Gerrit Cole was able to settle in after that. Reyes also started in the nightcap, going 0-for-4. In 10 games since he returned from a hamstring injury, he's gone 9-for-37 (.243) with two homers, five RBI and four runs scored. It's a modest improvement for the 26-year-old, who is still slashing an unsightly .206/.261/.324 with five long balls, 17 RBI and 13 runs scored through 184 plate appearances overall. He's still seeing a majority of the starts as the designated hitter, and he could pick up some time in right field while Oscar Gonzalez (abdomen) is sidelined.

  • Guardians' Franmil Reyes: Resting for back end of twin bill

    Reyes is out of the lineup for the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Twins.

    Reyes recently returned from a stint on the injured list due to a strained hamstring, so the Guardians won't ask him to play both ends of the twin bill. Jose Ramirez will serve as Cleveland's designated hitter in Game 2 after Reyes went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in the Guardians' 3-2 win in the early game.
