  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Takes seat Wednesday

    Straw is not in the starting lineup Wednesday versus the White Sox, Andre Knott of Bally Sports Ohio reports.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Swipes seventh bag

    Straw went 2-for-3 with a walk, two runs scored and a stolen base in an 8-3 loss to the Blue Jays in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader.

    The speedy center fielder was then on the bench to begin the nightcap, although he eventually checked into the game as a defensive sub in the seventh inning and went 0-for-1. Straw is taking his duties as Cleveland's leadoff hitter seriously -- his 13.7 percent walk rate is more than three points higher than last year, helping to fuel a .280/.376/.360 slash line that comes with 21 runs scored and seven steals in 27 games.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Scores thrice in matinee

    Straw went 1-for-4 with a walk, an RBI and three runs scored in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader versus the White Sox.

He also crossed the plate after an eighth-inning walk. The center fielder didn't have as much success in the nightcap, going 1-for-4. He's hit safely in nine of 11 games this season, posting a .318/.434/.409 slash line with 13 runs scored, two RBI, four stolen bases, a triple and two doubles.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Four hits in win

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Notches third stolen base

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Swipes bag, scores twice

    Straw went 1-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base and two runs scored in Monday's 10-7 win over the Royals.

    Straw continues to do well in a table-setting role, going 4-for-17 with three walks in four games, leading to six runs scored. The center fielder has also notched a pair of stolen bases so far. With hot-hitting rookie Steven Kwan and superstar third baseman Jose Ramirez hitting behind him in the order, Straw just needs to keep getting aboard to do what he does best -- running.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Scores three runs Sunday

    Straw went 1-for-5 with a walk and three runs in Sunday's 17-3 win over the Royals.

    Straw wasn't one of the Guardians' most prolific performers in the blowout win, but he got on base three times on the day and came around to score each time while batting in front of rookie Steven Kwan, who went 5-for-5. Though Straw lacks power and doesn't hit for much hard contact, he walks at a solid clip, limits his strikeouts and offers quality defense in the outfield. That skill set -- plus the five-year, $25 million extension he inked over the weekend -- should keep him locked into an everyday role throughout the season. With his playing time secure, the speedy Straw could be one of the top candidates to lead the majors in stolen bases after he nabbed 30 bags in 36 attempts in 2021.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Signs five-year extension

    Straw signed a five-year, $25 million extension with the Guardians on Saturday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    The extension also includes a pair of team options, so Straw could be under team control through 2028 after previously being set to reach free agency after 2025. Straw hit .271/.349/.348 with four homers and 30 steals in his first full season last year while playing strong defense in center field.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Notches stolen base in loss

    Straw went 2-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base and a run scored in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Royals.

    Straw's biggest asset is his speed, and it only took him two plate appearances to get his first stolen base of the season. He and Steven Kwan were the only Guardians batters to reach base multiple times in this Opening Day contest. Straw established himself as an everyday major-leaguer last season with 30 stolen bases to go with a .271/.349/.348 slash line in 158 contests. Expect the 27-year-old to regularly patrol center field and bat leadoff as long as he continues to get on base at a solid clip.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Should hit leadoff

    Straw has gone 9-for-27 with two doubles, a stolen base and five runs scored through nine Cactus League games.

    Straw played his way back onto the fantasy radar with 30 stolen bases in 158 games last season between Houston and Cleveland. He also did well with a .349 on-base percentage, but his fantasy appeal remains limited. The Guardians' hitting is questionable outside of Straw, Jose Ramirez, Franmil Reyes and Amed Rosario. Steals, runs scored and maybe average should be pluses for Straw, but he won't add many homers or RBI despite an everyday role as the Guardians' projected leadoff hitter.
