  • 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.

  • Guardians' Josh Naylor: Hits fifth home run

    Naylor went 1-for-4 with a solo home run en route to a 10-2 win against the Athletics on Friday.

    Naylor's eighth-inning blast hardly had any impact on the outcome of the game, but it pushed his hitting streak to seven games and represents his fourth long ball across his last nine contests. The 26-year-old first baseman is now slashing .319/.395/.594 across 69 plate appearances on the year.

  • Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Belts third homer

    Freeman went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and scored twice during a 10-2 victory over Oakland on Friday.

    Freeman's home run wasn't exactly a towering blast, as it only traveled a projected 331 feet, but it was enough to give Cleveland the lead in the second inning. The 24-year-old infielder has been struggling at the plate to begin the season; however, he is now 5-for-12 with two homers, three RBI and five runs scored across his last three games.

  • Guardians' Triston McKenzie: Fans six in blowout victory

    McKenzie (2-2) earned the win Friday against Oakland, allowing one earned run on three hits and three walks while striking out six batters across five innings.

    It seemed McKenzie would be in for another rough outing once he surrendered a leadoff home run to Abraham Toro on just the third pitch of the game, but the 26-year-old right-hander was able to keep Oakland's bats quiet for five innings after that point. His six strikeouts were more than he had accumulated all season heading into Friday's contest, though he still holds an ugly 11:15 K:BB. McKenzie is tentatively scheduled to make his next start at home against Boston on Thursday.

  • Guardians' Zak Kent: Out with elbow strain

    Kent was placed on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Columbus on Friday due to a right elbow strain.

    Kent presumably suffered the injury during his last appearance April 14, when he delivered a scoreless inning against Louisville. The right-hander will be out for at least the next week, but there's a decent chance he misses more time since it's an elbow injury.

  • Guardians' Ramon Laureano: Absent from lineup

    Laureano is not in the lineup for Friday's game versus the Athletics.

    Laureano's playing time has slipped a bit of late, as he's now started every other game over the last five contests. Will Brennan is in right field and Estevan Florial will be the designated hitter Friday.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Beginning rehab at Double-A

    Hentges (finger) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Akron on Friday, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

    Hentges began facing hitters earlier this week, and he's now ready to get into game action. He dealt with a swollen finger during spring training and has been out for over a month. Once he's ready to join the major-league roster, he'll be tasked with joining a competitive group that is second in the majors with a 2.29 bullpen ERA.

  • Guardians' Jose Ramirez: Records first steal of season

    Ramirez went 0-for-4 with one RBI and one stolen base in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Red Sox.

    Ramirez reached on a fielder's choice in the fifth inning and picked up his first steal of the campaign on his first attempt. The third baseman isn't the fastest player, but he tends to be opportunistic on the basepaths. He has at least 20 steals in each of the last five full campaigns, including going 28-for-34 on his stolen base attempts in 2023. His four-game hitting streak came to a close Thursday, and he's batting a modest .238 with three home runs, 16 RBI, 14 runs scored, three doubles and a triple of 19 contests.

  • Guardians' Emmanuel Clase: Rebounds for fifth save

    Clase earned the save in Thursday's 5-4 win over Boston, striking out one in a perfect ninth inning.

    It was an encouraging effort from Clase after he'd blown his previous two save opportunities. Despite his recent rough patch, the 26-year-old Clase has been excellent overall to start the year, allowing just one earned run through his first nine innings while striking out seven as he improves to 5-for-7 in save chances.

  • Guardians' Carlos Carrasco: Picks up first win

    Carrasco (1-1) earned the win Thursday against the Red Sox, allowing two runs on four hits and three walks over 5.2 innings. He struck out five.

    Carrasco's gotten off to a solid start in his second stint with Cleveland -- the veteran right-hander hasn't allowed more than three runs in any of his first four starts. He lowered his ERA to 3.44 and also has a 1.53 WHIP and 16:12 K:BB across 18.1 innings after struggling to a 6.80 ERA in 20 starts with the Mets last season. While Carrasco isn't likely to warrant fantasy consideration at this stage in his career, he's likely locked in as the Guardians' fifth starter with Shane Bieber (elbow) out for the year.

  • Guardians' Wes Parsons: Back in Columbus

    The Guardians optioned Parsons to Triple-A Columbus on Thursday.

    Parsons was pushed off the big-league roster in order to make room for Pedro Avila, who was acquired from San Diego on Wednesday. Parsons has given up six earned runs in nine innings this season between the Guardians and Blue Jays, and he may return to Cleveland later in the year as a multi-inning relief option.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: Takes seat for series finale

    Brennan is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Red Sox.

    The Red Sox are opening the game with a left-hander (Brennan Bernardino), so the lefty-hitting Brennan will bow out of the starting nine in the series finale. Jose Ramirez will get a day off out of the field and serve as the Guardians' designated hitter in place of Brennan on Thursday.

  • Guardians' Steven Kwan: First day off Thursday

    Kwan is out of the lineup for Thursday's contest in Boston.

    Kwan will get his first day off of the season. David Fry will start in left field in place of Kwan, while Andres Gimenez serves as Cleveland's leadoff batter.
