  • Guardians' Anthony Gose: Designated for assignment

    Gose (elbow) was designated for assignment by the Guardians on Tuesday.

    The left-hander underwent Tommy John surgery in September and is poised to miss the entire 2023 campaign, so Cleveland won't carry him on the 40-man roster through the offseason. Gose had a 4.71 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 28:14 K:BB over 21 innings prior to landing on the injured list.

  • Guardians' Kirk McCarty: DFA'd by Cleveland

    McCarty was designated for assignment by the Guardians on Tuesday.

    McCarty made his big-league debut last season but won't retain his spot on the 40-man roster through the offseason. The 27-year-old had a 4.54 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 26:13 K:BB across 37.2 innings.

  • Guardians' Tim Herrin: Joining 40-man roster

    Herrin was added to the Guardians' 40-man roster Tuesday.

    Herrin split the 2022 campaign between Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus, and he finished with a 4.02 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 101:23 K:BB across 69.1 innings.

  • Guardians' Joey Cantillo: Joins 40-man roster

    Cantillo (shoulder) was added to the Guardians' 40-man roster Tuesday.

    Cantillo had a 1.93 ERA through 14 outings with Double-A Akron last season but missed the final two months of the campaign with shoulder soreness. The injury won't prevent him from being added to the 40-man roster as Cleveland protects him from the Rule 5 draft.

  • Guardians' Angel Martinez: Shielded from Rule 5 draft

    Martinez was added to Cleveland's 40-man roster Tuesday.

    The 20-year-old worked his way up to the Double-A level in 2022, so the Guardians opted to protect him from the Rule 5 draft. Martinez had an .849 OPS with 13 home runs and 12 stolen bases in 101 games between High-A and Double-A last season.

  • Guardians' Juan Brito: Shipped to Cleveland

    Brito was acquired by the Guardians from the Rockies on Tuesday in exchange for Nolan Jones.

    Brito spent the 2022 campaign at the Single-A level and had a .286/.407/.470 slash line with 11 home runs, 72 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 107 games. The 21-year-old should be bumped up to High-A at some point in 2023.

  • Guardians' Jose Ramirez: Undergoes thumb surgery

    Ramirez (thumb) underwent surgery Wednesday on his right thumb, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

    Ramirez required a procedure to repair the ulnar collateral ligament in the thumb. The 30-year-old is expected to be able to return to baseball activities in 6-to-8 weeks, placing little doubt on his availability for spring training in February. After noticing a decline in production while playing through the injury for the second half of the 2022 campaign, Ramirez will look to return to form in 2023 and remains a elite fantasy option at third base.

  • Guardians' Jose Ramirez: Thumb surgery scheduled

    Ramirez will undergo thumb surgery Wednesday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

    Ramirez injured his thumb in mid-June, and while he played through the issue the rest of the way, his .766 OPS post-injury was well below his 1.039 pre-injury mark. The injury affected his power most notably, as he slugged .642 before getting hurt but slugged a merely decent .437 after the injury. He's expected to have time to fully recover by the start of next season, so the Guardians will be hoping for a return to his early-season form.

  • Guardians' George Valera: Mixed results after promotion

    Valera slashed .221/.324/.448 with nine homers and a 22:45 BB:K across 42 games following his promotion to Triple-A Columbus.

    Valera's full-season numbers look better, as he put together a .250/.353/.463 slash line with 24 homers in 132 games, but his fairly high strikeout rate and inability to hit for average in the minors offer some cause for concern. However, he did get bitten by the BABIP bug in Triple-A, so it's reasonable to consider that .221 batting average an outlier. It's also worth remembering that this was his age-21 campaign, so merely reaching that level is impressive. Nonetheless, while Valera's power carries his profile, he hasn't posted a slugging percentage north of .500 since High-A. He remains a valuable prospect, but it wouldn't be surprising if it were to take him a few years to develop into a productive big leaguer.

  • Guardians' Jose Ramirez: Requires hand surgery

    Ramirez is scheduled to undergo surgery on his right hand in the coming weeks after the Guardians lost to the Yankees in Game 5 of the ALDS on Tuesday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    Ramirez suffered the injury in mid-June and missed two games, but he opted to play through the issue rather than immediately go under the knife and miss a chunk of the season. The 30-year-old was putting together a potential MVP campaign with a 1.039 OPS and 16 homers in 60 games prior to the injury, and he had a .766 OPS the rest of the way while playing through the pain. Ramirez is expected to be fully recovered for spring training in February, per Mark Feinsand of MLB.com.
