He's been better in September, hitting .319 (15-for-47) with 11 RBI, six runs scored and four doubles through 12 contests. The rookie outfielder is up to a .291/.327/.470 slash line with eight homers, 34 RBI, 25 runs scored, one stolen base and 24 doubles through 284 plate appearances.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Homers twice in win

    Gonzalez went 4-for-5 with a three-run home run and a two-run home run in a 7-6 victory over the Twins on Friday.

    Gonzalez powered his team to an important victory with playoff implications by launching two homers. He tallied five total RBI in the first multi-homer game of his career. Gonzalez has been a bright spot for the Guardians after Franmil Reyes disappointed the team with his performance before being let go at the beginning of August. Gonzalez is now slashing .296/.327/.474 with seven long balls in 253 at-bats in his rookie season.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Delivers game-winning hit

    Gonzalez went 2-for-5 with a double and two RBI in the Guardians' 6-5 extra-inning win over the Royals on Monday.

    Both of Gonzalez's RBI came on his one-out double in the top of the 10th inning, which proved to be the difference in the Guardians' one-run triumph. Gonzalez has stepped back into an everyday role in the outfield since being activated from the injured list Aug. 2, slashing .280/.309/.432 with three home runs, one stolen base and 12 RBI in 30 games over the past month.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Homers in blowout win

    Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Wednesday's win over the Padres.

    Gonzalez hit the second of back-to-back home runs off lefty starter Blake Snell with nobody out in the fourth to put the Guardians up 3-0. He's been red hot over his last seven games, posting a .333 average and .704 slugging percentage in 27 at-bats. The 24-year-old has generally been a little more productive against righties (.833 OPS in 136 at-bats) than lefties (.766 OPS in 61 at-bats).

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Knocks homer in win

    Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Padres.

    Gonzalez opened the scoring when he took Padres starter Mike Clevinger deep to left field in the second inning. Since returning to action Aug. 2, Gonzalez has gone 24-for-70 (.343) while maintaining a regular role in right field.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Slugs in home win

    Gonzalez went 2-for-5 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's 8-4 win over the Tigers.

    Gonzalez tallied two RBI doubles -- the first off Daniel Norris in the third inning and the second off Alex Lange in the eighth. The outfielder's power has surfaced of late with a .517 slugging percentage in 60 at-bats during his last 15 games. Gonzalez's walk rate -- which has been low all season -- has bottomed out as he has not recorded a single walk over 84 at-bats in his last 23 games.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Swipes first bag

    Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Tigers.

    The 24-year-old rookie stole his first career base in the majors while extending his scorching-hot August. Gonzalez has hit safely in 10 of 11 starts since coming off the injured list at the beginning of the month, slashing .340/.340/.426 with four doubles, three runs and three RBI, but his 0:10 BB:K suggests a correction could be coming.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Resting Wednesday

    Gonzalez isn't starting Wednesday against the Tigers.

    Gonzalez started the last four games and went 6-for-16 with a double, two RBI, a run and two strikeouts. Nolan Jones will shift to right field while Will Benson serves as the designated hitter.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Two hits, two RBI in win

    Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a two-run double and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Tigers.

    Gonzalez notched a single in the sixth frame before ripping a two-RBI double in the eighth inning and coming around to score on a Josh Naylor base knock. The 24-year-old now owns a six-game hit streak, batting .375 with a home run, two doubles, four RBI and two runs scored over those contests.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Sits against righty

    Gonzalez is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Astros.

    After being reinstated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Gonzalez picked up consecutive starts -- one against a right-hander and one against a left-hander -- and went 3-for-8 with a home run, a double and two RBI. Though the righty-hitting Gonzalez will take a seat Thursday versus Astros righty Justin Verlander, it's not yet clear if the rookie will be part of a strict platoon in right field with the lefty-hitting Nolan Jones, who rejoins the starting nine after a two-game hiatus. Instead, manager Terry Francona could be inclined to deploy the duo in a timeshare, with the hotter bat of the two potentially emerging as the clear-cut No. 1 option.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Slugs third homer

    Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

    Gonzalez took Kevin Ginkel yard in the sixth inning to tally his third homer of the season. He returned to the lineup Aug. 2 after a month-long stint on the injured list and has collected three hits in seven at-bats since his activation. With the demotion of Franmil Reyes, Gonzalez should have a relatively clear path to regular at-bats for the foreseeable future. Across 138 plate appearances on the season, Gonzalez has maintained a .290/.319/.458 line across 138 plate appearances.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Returns to lineup

    Gonzalez (intercostal) is returning from the 10-day injured list Tuesday and batting seventh as the right fielder versus Arizona, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

    The outfielder slashed .285/.315/.431 with a pair of home runs and 14 RBI in 32 games before getting injured at the end of June. Gonzalez should see frequent playing time going forward, assuming he picks up where he left off and produces near the bottom of Cleveland's lineup.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Nearing return from IL

    Gonzalez (intercostal) could be activated from the injured list as soon as Tuesday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    Franmil Reyes was seen cleaning out his locker after Monday's game. Gonzalez returning to fill the vacated roster spot seems logical, although the Guardians could also trade for an outfielder ahead of Tuesday's deadline. Gonzalez has played in five rehab games with Double-A Akron over the past week, collecting two hits in 15 at-bats.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Rehabbing at Double-A

    Gonzalez (intercostal) began a rehab assignment at Double-A Akron on Tuesday and has gone 1-for-5 with a walk and two runs scored over two games.

    Gonzalez has been on the injured list since July 2 with a right intercostal strain and will likely remain on his rehab assignment at least through the weekend while he works to regain his timing at the plate. Prior to getting hurt, Gonzalez had handled an everyday role in right field for the Guardians, but his intercostal injury may have caused him to fall behind fellow rookie Nolan Jones on the depth chart. Since getting his first call-up to the majors earlier this month, Jones has produced an .883 OPS over 17 games.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Placed on 10-day injured list

    Gonzalez was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right intercostal strain Saturday, retroactive to June 30.

    Gonzalez missed the last two games for an unspecified reason, and he underwent an MRI that revealed swelling in his ribs. Per Mandy Bell of MLB.com, the 24-year-old will be shut down for approximately a week, so it seems likely that he'll spend more than the minimum of 10 day on the IL. Ernie Clement and Richie Palacios should see increased playing time in the outfield, while Gabriel Arias was recalled from Triple-A Columbus.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Remains out Friday

    Gonzalez (undisclosed) is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Yankees.

    Gonzalez was scratched from Thursday's lineup and remains out for the series opener against New York, though it's still not clear what's ailing him. Richie Palacios will remain in the lineup in left field against right-hander Gerrit Cole.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Pair of doubles in nightcap

    Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with two doubles in a 6-0 loss to the Twins in Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader.

    Gonzalez was the only Guardian to post multiple hits in the nightcap, and one of three batters to collect more than one hit across the twin bill. The rookie outfielder snapped an 0-for-10 skid at the place with this performance, as he's cooled off a bit late in June. He's still slashing a solid .294/.325/.445 with two home runs, 14 RBI, 12 runs scored and 12 doubles through 31 games. Barring a significant slump, Gonzalez should continue to serve as the near-everyday right fielder.
