  • Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Goes deep in loss

    Freeman went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Tigers.

    Freeman homered twice over his last four games of the season, giving him four long balls on the year. The infielder also posted a .242/.295/.366 slash line over 168 plate appearances. He added 18 RBI, 20 runs scored and five stolen bases, and he should have a chance to compete for a larger role in spring training next year.

  • Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Knocks third homer

    Freeman went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run in Friday's 7-5 win over the Tigers.

    The multi-hit effort was Freeman's first since July 9, though his playing time has been limited. The 24-year-old infielder has gone 9-for-40 (.225) over 17 games in September while swatting two of his three homers on the season. He's batting .242 with a .645 OPS, five stolen bases, 17 RBI and 19 runs scored through 62 contests overall.

  • Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Productive in win

    Freeman went 1-for-3 with an RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Reds.

    Freeman got the Guardians on the board with an RBI single in the bottom of the second to score Ramon Laureano and later came around to score the team's second run after stealing second. It was only the third baseman's seventh hit this month, where he's now batting .200 with six RBI, four runs scored and two stolen bases.

  • Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Homers in blowout loss

    Freeman went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's 20-6 loss to the Twins.

    Freeman has homered twice over his last four games, though that's in a stretch dating back to Aug. 26. The young infielder isn't seeing steady playing time as the Guardians instead lean on veterans while trying to compete for the AL Central lead. Freeman has added nine RBI, 15 runs scored and three stolen bases while slashing .238/.306/.354 over 126 plate appearances this season.

  • Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Pops first career homer

    Freeman went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 8-3 loss to the Blue Jays.

    Getting the start at third base and batting seventh, Freeman hooked a slow curve from Hyun Jin Ryu over the wall in left field in the fifth inning for his first career homer in the majors. The 24-year-old seems to be settling into a short-side platoon role all over the infield, but since returning from the IL in mid-August he's gone just 2-for-20 with six strikeouts.

  • Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Activated from injured list

    Freeman (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday.

    Freeman missed the last two weeks of action with a shoulder issue. Brayan Rocchio and Gabriel Arias have been seeing action at shortstop for the Guardians since the Amed Rosario trade, but Freeman could be worked into the mix.

  • Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Beginning rehab assignment

    Freeman (shoulder) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Columbus on Friday, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

    Freeman has been out of action for just over a week with shoulder soreness that first popped up Aug. 1 versus the Astros. The fact that he's already set for a rehab assignment is a positive sign that he could be activated when first eligible. What's less clear is where Freeman might fit in the Guardians' infield once he returns, as Brayan Rocchio and Gabriel Arias have both enjoyed some success with more playing time in recent weeks.

  • Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Placed on 10-day IL

    Cleveland placed Freeman on the 10-day injured list Friday, retroactive to Aug. 2, with right shoulder soreness, Mandy Bell of reports.

    There's no exact diagnosis yet, but Freeman will be sidelined until at least next weekend. Jose Tena is joining the Guardians on Friday to provide additional middle infield depth behind Andres Gimenez, Brayan Rocchio and Gabriel Arias.

  • Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Tending to sore shoulder

    Freeman wasn't available for Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Astros due to a sore right shoulder, reports.

    Freeman picked up the injury in Tuesday's 2-0 loss, when his shoulder acted up as he grounded out in the fourth inning. He stayed in the game for the bottom of the fourth before being replaced by Andres Gimenez in the field in the next inning. Follow-up exams on Freeman reportedly were encouraging, so he could be ready to play at some point during this weekend's series with the White Sox. The Guardians have an opening at shortstop after trading away Amed Rosario last week, but the team has thus far favored Gabriel Arias as the primary option at the position, and top prospect Brayan Rocchio was just called up Wednesday.

  • Guardians' Tyler Freeman: On base three times Sunday

    Freeman went 2-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

    Freeman notched multiple hits and a steal for his second straight start; however, his playing time remains sparse and his only path to a more consistent role seems to be if someone ahead of him gets injured. The 24-year-old has done well when given an opportunity and is now slashing .308/.352/.400 with six extra-base hits, four RBI, 11 runs, three steals and a 4:11 BB:K in 72 plate appearances.

  • Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Steals base, scores twice in win

    Freeman went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and two runs scored in Tuesday's 6-5 extra-inning win over Atlanta.

    Freeman has hit safely in just four of his last 11 games, with each of those instances being multi-hit efforts. He's stuck behind Jose Ramirez, Amed Rosario and Andres Gimenez for playing time in Cleveland's infield, but Freeman has made the most of his recent chances. For the season, he's batting .290 with a .715 OPS, four RBI, two steals, 10 runs scored, six doubles and no home runs over 68 plate appearances.

  • Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Batting leadoff

    Freeman is starting at third base and batting leadoff Friday versus the Cubs.

    Jose Ramirez is getting a designated hitter day and Steven Kwan is receiving a rare day off, which provides Freeman with a chance to start. It'll be the first time the 24-year-old has batted leadoff at the major-league level.

  • Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Solid off bench Saturday

    Freeman went 1-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Twins.

    Freeman entered the game after Amed Rosario exited with left knee soreness. Playing time has been sparse for Freeman since his May 6 recall -- this was just the ninth game he's appeared in since that date. He's batting .286 with two doubles, two walks and three runs scored through 30 plate appearances on the year. If Rosario is forced to miss time, some combination of Freeman, Gabriel Arias and Brayan Rocchio would likely compete to fill the void at shortstop.

  • Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Back in big leagues

    Freeman was recalled by the Guardians on Saturday.

    Freeman spent a few days in the big leagues in April, going 2-for-7 with a double and a walk. Combined with his slightly longer cameo last season, he's now hitting .250/.319/.298 in 94 MLB plate appearances. His Triple-A numbers suggest promise, as he's hit .329/.468/.482 in 22 games this season, but he doesn't seem to have a path to anything more than a utility role. Oscar Gonzalez was optioned in a corresponding move.

  • Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Heads back to Triple-A

    Cleveland optioned Freeman to Triple-A Columbus on Sunday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    The move opens up a spot on the 26-man roster for lefty Logan Allen, who was called up from Triple-A ahead of his scheduled start Sunday versus the Marlins. Freeman went 2-for-7 at the dish in his brief cup of coffee with the Guardians and will return to regular playing time as he heads back to the International League.

  • Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Returns to lineup Saturday

    Freeman (shoulder) is hitting eighth and playing third base against the Marlins on Saturday for the second game of a doubleheader.

    Freeman has missed the past few games with a shoulder injury, but he'll return for the second game of a twin bill. Jose Ramirez will be the designated hitter for the contest with Gabriel Arias handling the shortstop duties and Amed Rosario out of the lineup.

  • Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Hurts shoulder Tuesday

    Freeman didn't appear in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Tigers due to an apparent left shoulder injury, Joe Noga of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Though neither Freeman nor Amed Rosario (back) have been placed on the injured list, their poor health explains why the Guardians felt compelled to call up top middle-infield prospect Brayan Rocchio from Triple-A Columbus ahead of Wednesday's game. After being recalled ahead of Tuesday's doubleheader to help replace an ailing Rosario at shortstop, Freeman went 2-for-4 at the dish in the Guardians' 4-3 loss in Game 1 but appeared to hurt his shoulder while defending a stolen-base attempt in the fourth inning. After a team off day Thursday, the Guardians will presumably reassess both Rosario and Freeman before determining whether either infielder requires a stint on the IL.

  • Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Gets call-up from Triple-A

    The Guardians recalled Freeman from Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday, Mandy Bell of reports.

    Freeman was off to a blazing start at Columbus with a 1.100 OPS, two home runs and five stolen bases across 64 plate appearances. The infielder might only be around for a few days while reliever Enyel De Los Santos (personal) is on paternity leave. With Amed Rosario (back) tending to a minor injury and sitting out the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Tigers, Freeman will start at shortstop and bat eighth.
