  • Guardians' Andres Gimenez: On bench against lefty

    Gimenez isn't starting Thursday's game against the Tigers.

    Gimenez has started against just four left-handed pitchers this year, and he'll get a breather with southpaw Tarik Skubal on the mound for the Tigers on Thursday. Amed Rosario will shift to shortstop while Oscar Mercado starts in left field.

  • Guardians' Andres Gimenez: Sits against southpaw

    Gimenez will be on the bench against lefty Framber Valdez and the Astros on Tuesday.

    Gimenez has been facing lefties a bit more often recently after exclusively starting against righties early in the year, but he's now been on the bench against the last two southpaws the Guardians have faced, so that may be changing again. Owen Miller will start at second base Tuesday while Amed Rosario starts at shortstop.

  • Guardians' Andres Gimenez: Records third steal

    Gimenez went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Tuesday's 5-4 extra-inning loss to the Reds.

    Gimenez got aboard in the eighth inning on an infield single and then stole second. The speedy infielder has gone five games without a multi-hit effort, but he's still gotten aboard safely in 10 of 13 games in May. He's slashing a strong .323/.340/.552 with four home runs, 20 RBI, 13 runs scored and three stolen bases through 31 contests this season.

  • Guardians' Andres Gimenez: Goes yard in loss

    Gimenez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run, a walk and two total runs scored in Friday's 12-8 loss to the Twins.

    Gimenez's ninth-inning blast got the Guardians within four runs, but that was as close as it got. He's hit safely in seven of 10 games in May, boosting his slash line to .329/.348/.565 in 89 plate appearances. The shortstop has added four home runs, 19 RBI, 11 runs scored and a pair of stolen bases while earning a starting role in the bottom half of the lineup.

  • Guardians' Andres Gimenez: Key part of comeback

    Gimenez went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and an RBI double in Monday's 12-9 extra-innings win over the White Sox.

    Gimenez sparked the Guardians' six-run ninth inning with a solo shot. In the 10th, he knocked in Ernie Clement with a double, though Emmanuel Clase failed to protect the one-run lead. With multiple hits in four of his last six games, Gimenez continues to impress with the bat. The speedy infielder has a .351/.363/.571 slash line with three homers, 17 RBI, nine runs scored and two stolen bases through 80 plate appearances.

  • Guardians' Andres Gimenez: Records steal in nightcap

    Gimenez went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in an 8-2 win over the Blue Jays in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader.

    Gimenez sat out the matinee but manned second base in the nightcap. He's earned a regular role in the lineup as the primary second baseman, posting multiple hits in six of his last nine games. The infielder is slashing .348/.352/.536 with two home runs, 15 RBI, eight runs scored and a pair of stolen bases in 71 plate appearances. He's added two triples and three doubles. Gimenez is known for his speed more than his power, so his 1.4 percent walk rate is a little concerning.

  • Guardians' Andres Gimenez: On bench for matinee

    Gimenez isn't starting the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays.

    Gimenez will get a breather after he went 4-for-8 with a double, two runs, two RBI and a strikeout over the last two games. Owen Miller will shift to second base while Richie Palacios enters the lineup in left field for Saturday's matinee.

  • Guardians' Andres Gimenez: Launches grand slam

    Gimenez went 3-for-4 with a grand slam and a double during Friday's 9-8 victory against the Athletics.

    Gimenez doubled in the first inning, connected on a grand slam in the third and singled in the seventh en route to recording his second three-hit game of the season. The 23-year-old holds an impressive .349 average through 43 games this season, though that mark is propped up by an unsustainable .419 BABIP.

  • Guardians' Andres Gimenez: Sits against lefty

    Gimenez is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Angels.

    The lefty-hitting Gimenez will retreat to the bench with southpaw Reid Detmers on the hill for the Angels. Owen Miller will shift over from first base to replace Gimenez at the keystone.

  • Guardians' Andres Gimenez: Triples in loss

    Gimenez went 2-for-4 with a triple, two RBI and a strikeout in Sunday's 10-2 loss to the Yankees.

    Gimenez had a day off against a left-handed pitcher Saturday, but he drove in the Guardians' only two runs while returning to the field in Sunday's series finale. The 23-year-old is now in the midst of a four-game hitting streak in which he's gone 5-for-12 with a triple, three RBI, a run and a stolen base.

  • Guardians' Andres Gimenez: Registers steal in win

    Gimenez went 1-for-2 with a walk, an RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in Thursday's 6-3 win over the White Sox.

    Gimenez posted 19 stolen bases across his first 117 major-league games over the last two years. It's been a slower start this season, as he had to settle for a part-time role at second base out of the gate. The infielder is slashing .318/.333/.545 with a home run, a triple, four RBI, three runs scored and one steal through 24 plate appearances. Gimenez should see regular playing time while Yu Chang and Owen Miller are both on the COVID-19 injured list.

  • Guardians' Andres Gimenez: On strong side of platoon

    Gimenez is not in Saturday's lineup against the Yankees.

    The lefty-hitting middle infielder appears to be in a strict platoon, as he has not started against a lefty this season, and that won't change with Nestor Cortes on the hill for New York. Ernie Clement will start at the keystone and bat seventh.

  • Guardians' Andres Gimenez: Sitting out first game Wednesday

    Gimenez is out of the lineup for the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the White Sox, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

    With southpaw Dallas Keuchel on the mound for Chicago for the matinee game, the lefty-hitting Gimenez will bow out of the starting nine, as is usually the case when the Guardians face left-handed pitching. The Guardians called up prospect Gabriel Arias from Triple-A Columbus and will install him as the starting second baseman and No. 7 hitter for the front end of the doubleheader in Gimenez's stead. Arias is up with the club as the 29th man for the twin bill, so he's expected to head back to Columbus after Wednesday's games and isn't believed to be a threat to Gimenez's starting role.

  • Guardians' Andres Gimenez: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Gimenez is not in the lineup Sunday against San Francisco.

    Gimenez is working in the strong side of a platoon at second base and will head to the bench Sunday with lefty Alex Wood pitching for the Giants. Owen Miller will man the keystone while Bobby Bradley starts at first base.

  • Guardians' Andres Gimenez: On bench Friday

    Gimenez is out of the lineup Friday against the Giants.

    Gimenez will remain on the bench for a second straight contest after starting three of the previous four. He is 4-for-14 with a home run, a triple and three RBI through six games this season. Owen Miller will man the keystone Friday while Josh Naylor (lower leg), who is fresh off the injured list, will start at first base.

  • Guardians' Andres Gimenez: Takes seat Wednesday

    Gimenez is not in the lineup for Wednesday's contest versus the Reds.

    The 23-year-old will get a day off after starting each of the Guardians' last two contests and going 2-for-4 with a triple, a home run and three RBI Tuesday. Ernie Clement will enter the lineup at second base and bat seventh Wednesday against the Reds.

  • Guardians' Andres Gimenez: Triple, homer in win

    Gimenez went 2-for-4 with a triple, a home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Tuesday's win over the Reds.

    Gimenez showed off his speed in the fourth inning with his triple into the right-field corner. He later flashed his power on his go-ahead, two-run shot in the ninth, homer No. 1 of the season for Gimenez. The 23-year-old has started all but one game for Cleveland so far, batting eighth or ninth.

  • Guardians' Andres Gimenez: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Gimenez is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals.

  • Guardians' Andres Gimenez: Leading candidate for SS job

    Gimenez appears to be the leading candidate to win Cleveland's starting shortstop job, but manager Terry Francona said no decision has been made, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Gabriel Arias was sent to the minors and Amed Rosario has started in left field the last three spring training games, which points to Gimenez winning the job. Gimenez is helping his case by hitting .438 (7-for-16) this spring, and he's also seen as the best defender at shortstop. Gimenez had 11 stolen bases last season in 68 games, so he'll add fantasy value with his legs should he win an everyday role.
