  • Guardians' Ramon Laureano: Not in Tuesday's lineup

    Laureano is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against Boston.

    Laureano is mired in a 2-for-20 slump over his past six games and will take a seat for Tuesday's contest. Will Brennan will man right field and bat fifth.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: Launches second homer

    Brennan went 2-for-3 with a double, a solo home run and an additional run scored during Sunday's 6-2 win over the Athletics.

    Brennan teed off on A's starter Ross Stripling, tagging him for a long ball in the second inning and then hitting a double -- and eventually scoring -- in the fourth. The contest marked Brennan's first multi-hit game since Apr. 3 and broke him out of a 2-for-24 (.083) slump that spanned nine games. He's up to a .222 batting average on the season while striking out at a 14.8 percent clip.

  • Guardians' Tanner Bibee: Fans eight in victory

    Bibee (2-0) picked up the win Sunday, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks over 5.2 innings. He struck out eight.

    Bibee allowed a solo shot in the fourth frame to Brent Rooker, marking his fourth consecutive start allowing a long ball. However, he hit the eight-strikeout threshold for the second time this season and got himself in the win column. Bibee has stepped up in the absence of Shane Bieber (elbow), delivering two or fewer earned runs in two straight starts and lasting at least five innings in each appearance. He's tentatively scheduled for a matchup with Atlanta next weekend.

  • Guardians' Austin Hedges: Swipes bag in win

    Hedges went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Athletics.

    Hedges has played in just seven of the Guardians' first 21 contests. He's shared backup duties at catcher with David Fry when Bo Naylor is not playing. Hedges is hitting .120 with three RBI, one runs scored, one double and a stolen base over 26 plate appearances, which includes 10 strikeouts and no walks. As a defensive catcher, it's no surprise Hedges is not adding much with the bat.

  • Guardians' Josh Naylor: Blasts another homer

    Naylor went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and an additional RBI in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Athletics.

    Naylor has hit safely in eight straight games, going 11-for-33 (.333) with three homers and eight RBI in that span. The first baseman is thriving in the cleanup spot, slashing .329/.400/.630 with six homers, 17 RBI, 13 runs scored and four doubles over 85 plate appearances, but he's also been caught stealing on both of his attempts this year. Naylor has trimmed his strikeouts rate to 11.8 percent and upped his walk rate to 9.9 percent. He's never hit more than 20 homers in a season, but he's also never exceeded 122 contests, so an everyday role seems to be in part helping his increased production.

  • Guardians' Hunter Gaddis: Quickly ascending leverage ladder

    Gaddis walked one and struck out two in a scoreless and hitless inning to earn his fifth hold of the season Saturday versus the Athletics.

    Gaddis had struggled primarily as a starter over parts of the last two seasons, but he's thriving as a reliever so far. He's got a 15:3 K:BB while allowing just four hits and no runs over 10.2 innings to begin the campaign. Gaddis was expected to be more of a middle reliever initially, but he's looking more like a setup man after his hot start, which is especially impressive considering how strong the Guardians' bullpen has been. Gaddis has also been able to unlock more velocity in shorter outings -- per Statcast, his fastball is averaging 96.3 mph this year after sitting at 93.4 mph over the previous two years. He's also tightened his pitch arsenal, dropping his curveball and cutter while using his slider and changeup as his offspeed offerings.

  • Guardians' Jose Ramirez: Receives first rest day

    Ramirez is out of the lineup for Sunday's game versus the Athletics.

    Ramirez started the first 21 games of the season but will sit for Sunday's series finale versus Oakland, which will give him two straight days since Cleveland has a scheduled day off Monday. The five-time All-Star is off to a slow start in 2024 with a .239/.253/.402 slash line in 95 plate appearances, though he's still tied for fifth in the AL in RBI (18) and tied for sixth in runs (15).

  • Guardians' Ben Lively: Awarded another start

    Lively is scheduled to start Tuesday's series opener with the Red Sox at Progressive Field.

    Lively will be making his second turn through the Guardians rotation after he was effective in his MLB debut this past Wednesday in his return from a stint on the 15-day injured list while he recovered from a viral illness. While facing off against the same Boston team he'll face this week at Fenway Park, Lively struck out seven and gave up two earned runs on three hits and one walk over five innings, though he took the loss after being on the wrong end of a pitcher's duel with Tanner Houck. Lively should have a spot in the Cleveland rotation until Gavin Williams (elbow) is ready to return from the 15-day IL, likely in the first or second week of May. Williams made a start at extended spring training Saturday and should head out on a rehab assignment this week, though he'll likely need at least two starts in the minors before being activated from the IL.

  • Guardians' Steven Kwan: Tallies four hits, steals base

    Kwan went 4-for-5 with two doubles, two runs scored and a stolen base in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Athletics.

    It's already Kwan's 10th multi-hit game of the season but his first one with four base knocks. He hasn't done a ton of running yet for a guy who has gotten on base at a .394 clip, but Kwan picked up his second steal in this one and first since March 29. The 26-year-old also already has a couple home runs after hitting only five in 718 plate appearances last season.

  • Guardians' Emmanuel Clase: Nabs sixth save Saturday

    Clase tossed a scoreless ninth inning with two strikeouts against the Athletics on Saturday to pick up his sixth save of the season.

    Asking Clase to preserve a three-run lead against the A's is about as easy as a save opportunity gets, but his fantasy managers will take it. Clase did give up a leadoff double to Ryan Noda in this one, but he quickly rebounded with a couple punchouts sandwiched around a groundout. The 26-year-old closer has been credited with two blown saves this season, but he's been charged with just one earned run and has a 9:0 K:BB over 10 frames.

  • Guardians' Logan Allen: Picks up third win

    Allen (3-0) did enough for the win Saturday versus the Athletics, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks over 5.1 innings. He struck out four.

    It was a bit surprising Allen was even sent back out for the sixth inning, as he needed 84 pitches to cover five frames and his fifth inning was particularly laborious. The lefty was finally pulled after yielding a one-out triple in the sixth, with that runner immediately scoring and getting charged to Allen. The Guardians southpaw holds a 5.06 ERA in five outings and has managed just one quality start, though he still has a spotless 3-0 record.

  • Guardians' Estevan Florial: Sits down versus southpaw

    Florial isn't in the Guardians' lineup for Saturday's game against the Athletics.

    With lefty Alex Wood set to start on the mound for Oakland, the left-handed bat of Florial will begin Saturday's contest in the dugout. His absence will move Josh Naylor into the DH spot while David Fry picks up a start at first base and bats second.

  • Guardians' Andres Gimenez: Gets Saturday off

    Gimenez isn't in Cleveland's lineup for Saturday's game against the A's.

    Gimenez will step out of the lineup Saturday after going 1-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored during Friday's series opener. While he rests, Gabriel Arias will fill in at the keystone and bat seventh.

  • Guardians' Bo Naylor: Out versus lefty

    Naylor isn't in the Guardians' lineup for Saturday's game against Oakland.

    The lefty-hitting Naylor will take a seat Saturday as the A's send left-hander Alex Wood to the mound. Austin Hedges will start behind the plate instead and bat eighth.

  • Guardians' Estevan Florial: Three-hit effort Friday

    Florial went 3-for-4 with a double, one RBI and one run scored in Friday's 10-2 win over the Athletics.

    This was Florial's first multi-hit effort of the season. After a slow start, he's hit safely in four of his last six games while driving in all five of his RBI over that span. The outfielder is batting .235 with two home runs, a stolen base and four runs scored over 39 plate appearances, but it appears he is gaining traction as a regular in the lineup versus right-handed pitchers.

  • Guardians' Andres Gimenez: Posts third steal

    Gimenez went 1-for-4 with two RBI, one stolen base and one run scored in Friday's 10-2 win over the Athletics.

    Gimenez is just 5-for-25 over his last six games, but he's driven in six runs in that span. None of those hits have gone for extra bases. The second baseman started 2024 hot, so it's not surprising he's cooled off a bit. Gimenez is slashing .291/.356/.380 with three steals, 13 RBI, 14 runs scored, five doubles and a triple over 91 plate appearances, but he's yet to hit a home run this season.
