Top Myles Straw News

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Sitting for nightcap

    Straw is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Tigers.

    Straw has not lost much playing time despite being mired in an extended slump, but he will not start both games on Monday's schedule. Oscar Mercado will start in center field in Straw's place.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Posts steal in loss

    Straw went 0-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in a 13-4 loss to the Yankees in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader.

    Straw didn't record a hit in either game of the twin bill, but he made a contribution in the matinee with an RBI on a fielder's choice. He hasn't had a multi-hit effort since June 22, and the lackluster hitting is likely to keep him at the bottom of the order until he can turn things around. He's slashing .196/.290/.247 with 12 steals, 10 RBI, 44 runs scored, 12 doubles and a triple through 74 contests, and the soft-hitting Straw has yet to swat a home run this year.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: On base thrice Thursday

    Straw went 1-for-2 with an RBI and a pair of walks in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Twins.

    Straw had a positive finish to an otherwise unimpressive June, a month in which he hit .149 (14-for-94). He added a pair of steals, three RBI, 10 runs scored and three doubles, but the outfielder's slump cost him the leadoff spot in the lineup. For the season, Straw is slashing .202/.298/.255 with no home runs, nine RBI, 44 runs scored and 11 stolen bases. Hitting at the bottom of the order drastically reduces his fantasy potential, especially considering he adds next to nothing in the power categories.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Resting for second game Tuesday

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

    Straw will take a seat for the first time since June 16, ending a stretch of 11 consecutive starts. Richie Palacios will enter the Cleveland outfield in the nightcap as a replacement for Straw, who went 0-for-2 with a walk and a run scored in the Guardians' 3-2 win in Game 1.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Moved to bottom of lineup

    Straw will start in center field and bat ninth in Thursday's game against the Twins, Andre Knott of Bally Sports Ohio reports.

    Straw's inclusion at the bottom of the order confirms that he's lost hold of the leadoff gig against both left- and right-handed pitching. After ceding leadoff duties to the lefty-hitting Steven Kwan both of the past two days when the Guardians opposed right-handed starters (Joe Ryan and Sonny Gray), Straw will give way to the righty-hitting Owen Miller atop the lineup Thursday against Twins southpaw Devin Smeltzer. The move down in the lineup comes while Straw has produced a lowly .143/.211/.171 slash line to go with two extra-base hits (both doubles), two stolen bases, eight runs and one RBI over his first 19 games of June.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Sits amid slump

    Straw is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rockies.

    The slumping Straw will sit for the second time in five games while Steven Kwan shifts over to center field and Richie Palacios enters the lineup in left. Through 13 games in June, Straw has slashed .146/.196/.146 with two stolen bases, six runs and one RBI.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Day off Saturday

    Straw is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the A's.

    Straw went 3-for-28 (.107) over his last seven games, so he will get a day off to clear his head. Steven Kwan will start in center field in Straw's place.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Two steals in Tuesday's matinee

    Straw went 1-for-4 with a walk, a run scored and two stolen bases in a 6-3 win over the Rangers during the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader.

    He also made a contribution in the nightcap, going 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored. Straw handled his usual leadoff duties in both games, and while his 37 runs plus 11 steals in 12 attempts on the season have value, his .228/.330/.286 slash line, zero homers and seven RBI make him tough to roster in shallower formats.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Riding pine Wednesday

    Straw isn't starting Wednesday against the Royals.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Swipes bag in win

    Straw went 1-for-3 with a stolen base, two runs scored and a pair of walks in Saturday's 8-1 win over the Tigers.

    Straw's steal was his first since May 13. He's struggled a bit at the dish since then, going 10-for-42 (.238) with only one multi-hit effort in his last 11 games. The outfielder is up to 9-for-10 in stolen base attempts this year while adding a .242/.342/.312 slash line, 32 runs scored, six RBI and no home runs in 42 contests. He's also posted nine doubles and a triple.

    Straw singled and scored in the sixth inning followed by a double and another run scored in the eighth. Since his last multi-hit game on May 7, he'd been stuck in a 3-for-31 skid over his last nine appearances. The 27-year-old outfielder is now slashing .254/.354/.328 with eight doubles and 26 runs scored through 36 games.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Draws three walks

    Straw went 0-for-2 with three walks, a steal and a run scored in Friday's 12-8 loss to Minnesota.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Takes seat Wednesday

  • 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: Reaches three times Thursday

    Straw went 1-for-2 with a double and two walks in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Angels.

Straw's three times on base accounted for half of the team's baserunners in Thursday's contest. The outfielder is slashing .268/.369/.338 with four stolen bases, three RBI, 15 runs scored, three doubles and a triple in 19 games as the regular leadoff hitter.
