Guardians' Steven Kwan: Scores thrice Wednesday
Kwan went 3-for-4 with a double, a walk, a stolen base and three runs scored in Wednesday's 7-6 extra-inning win over the Twins.
Kwan went 0-for-6 with two walks in Tuesday's doubleheader, but he was able to get back to productive hitting Wednesday. The rookie outfielder has four multi-hit efforts in his last nine games, going 13-for-33 (.394) in that span. For the season, he's slashing .288/.374/.371 with one home run, 18 RBI, 32 runs scored and five steals in 60 contests. He should continue to regularly bat leadoff versus right-handed pitchers, and he could start to get more looks against southpaws if his bat stays hot.... See More ... See Less

Guardians' Steven Kwan: Four-hit night
Kwan went 4-for-6 with a run scored in a 6-5 win over the Twins on Tuesday.
Kwan caught the attention of fantasy managers with an offensive barrage on the season's opening weekend. After seeing his roster rate rise immediately afterwards, Kwan then cooled off considerably in May, slashing a weak .173/.271/.253 over the span of the month. He has since gotten back into a groove, and after Tuesday's four-hit game, he is now slashing .364/.400/.382 in June. He doesn't offer any appreciable power, but the Guardians like to lead him off against right-handed pitching and he has shown he can hit for average in bursts.... See More ... See Less
