  • Guardians' Peter Strzelecki: Moves up to big leagues

    The Guardians recalled Strzelecki from Triple-A Columbus on Sunday.

    He'll join the Cleveland bullpen as a replacement for right-hander Spencer Howard, who was designated for assignment in a corresponding move. Strzelecki tossed 5.2 scoreless innings over four relief appearances with Cleveland earlier this season but has otherwise spent the entire 2024 campaign at the Triple-A level, where he's turned in a 4.18 ERA and 1.15 WHIP over 32.1 frames.

  • Guardians' Spencer Howard: Pushed off 40-man roster

    The Guardians designated Howard for assignment Sunday.

    After being acquired from the Giants earlier this month, Howard stepped into the rotation for his Guardians debut July 11, but he lasted just three innings and gave up four earned runs in a loss against the Tigers. The Guardians turned to him in relief for his next appearance in Saturday's 7-0 loss to the Padres and he once again struggled, surrendering four runs (one earned) on four hits -- including two home runs -- in two innings. After the pair of poor outings, the Guardians will move on from Howard and replace him on the 26-man active roster with righty Peter Strzelecki, who was called up from Triple-A Columbus ahead of Sunday's series finale with San Diego.

  • Guardians' David Fry: Sitting in series finale

    Fry is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres.

    After going 3-for-3 with a walk, two runs and an RBI in Friday's 7-0 win, Fry remained in the lineup at designated hitter in Saturday's 7-0 loss, finishing 0-for-3 with two strikeouts. Though he was named a first-time All-Star and upholds an .860 OPS on the season, Fry is slashing just .130/.231/.130 over his last nine games and has started to lose out on regular playing time versus right-handed pitching. He'll be the odd man out of the lineup Sunday while Jose Ramirez gets a day out of the infield and serves as the Guardians' designated hitter.

  • Guardians' Bo Naylor: Taking seat Sunday

    Naylor is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres.

    Naylor started the first two games of the series but will receive Sunday off after going 1-for-7 with a run and four strikeouts. Austin Hedges will work behind the plate and bat ninth in the finale.

  • Guardians' Chase DeLauter: Rehabbing in Arizona

    DeLauter (toe) began a rehab assignment with the Guardians' Arizona Complex League affiliate on Saturday.

    DeLauter has played just one game since April due to a broken left foot and then a sprained toe on his right foot. He's dealt with multiple foot injuries, primarily to the left one, during his minor-league career. Given his lengthy absence, he'll likely need at least a handful of rehab games before he can return to Double-A Akron's lineup.

  • Guardians' Gavin Williams: Takes second loss

    Williams (0-2) allowed three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five over 3.2 innings, taking the loss Saturday versus the Padres.

    The Guardians mustered just two baserunners, giving Williams next to nothing for support. He had a particularly rough fourth inning, loading the bases and allowing all three runs on his line in that frame on three hits, two walks and a hit-by-pitch. This was the shortest of four starts for Williams so far, and it looks like he's still shaking off some rust after missing the first three months of the year with an elbow injury. Williams has a 4.50 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 14:8 K:BB over 18 innings this season. The right-hander's next start is projected to come at home versus the Tigers.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: On bench Saturday

    Brennan is not in the starting lineup Saturday against San Diego.

    Brennan will take a seat after he went 0-for-2 in Friday's 7-0 victory. Angel Martinez will slide over to right field while Tyler Freeman enters the lineup in center and bats eighth versus the Padres.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: Sitting again Saturday

    Rocchio is not in the starting lineup Saturday versus the Padres.

    Rocchio will stay on the bench for a second game in a row following the All-Star break. Daniel Schneemann will draw another start at shortstop, batting seventh against San Diego.

  • Guardians' Hunter Gaddis: Earns 20th hold

    Gaddis allowed a hit in a scoreless inning to earn a hold in Friday's 7-0 win over the Padres.

    Gaddis pitched in the eighth inning and protected a one-run lead before the Guardians' offense erupted. This was Gaddis' 20th hold of the season, and he's earned eight of them during a 17-inning scoreless streak dating back to June 7. The right-hander has been a pleasant surprise in his first full year in the bullpen, pitching to a 1.17 ERA, 0.73 WHIP and 44:7 K:BB while adding a 3-2 record in a setup role.

  • Guardians' David Fry: On base four times in win

    Fry went 3-for-3 with a walk, one RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 7-0 win over the Padres.

    Fry went just 3-for-30 over the first 11 games of July before matching that hit total in the first game back after his appearance in the All-Star Game. He was beginning to lose playing time due to the slump, with utility man Daniel Schneemann picking up most of the slack, but the Guardians' lineup remains fairly flexible with multiple utility players. Fry is slashing .290/.398/.473 with eight home runs, 34 RBI, 31 runs scored and four stolen bases over 74 contests, and he'll be out to prove his hot first half was not a fluke.

  • Guardians' Steven Kwan: Swipes sixth bag

    Kwan went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Friday's 7-0 win over the Padres.

    MLB's batting average leader at .354 -- 26 points ahead of second-place Bobby Witt -- Kwan came flying out of the All-Star break with his first multi-hit performance since July 9. The 26-year-old outfielder only has six steals in 10 attempts this season, a disappointing showing after he went 21-for-24 on the basepaths in 2023, but he has successfully swiped bags in back-to-back games and could make an impact in the category in the second half.

  • Guardians' Tanner Bibee: Blanks Friars for eighth win

    Bibee (8-4) picked up the win Friday, scattering two hits and three walks over 5.2 innings in a 7-0 victory over the Padres. He struck out three.

    San Diego didn't get a runner past second base against Bibee, who got the hook after 102 pitches (67 strikes) just short of his eighth quality start of the season. While this was an encouraging outing after the right-hander gave up eight runs in 11.2 innings over his last two starts before the All-Star break, Bibee has issued multiple walks in three straight trips to the mound, something he hadn't done since April. He'll take a 3.58 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 126:30 K:BB through 110.2 innings into his next start, which is scheduled to come at home next week against the Tigers.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: On bench Friday

    Rocchio is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Padres.

    Rocchio sat out two of the Guardians' final three games leading up to the All-Star break and will remain out of the starting lineup Friday. The 23-year-old is 0-for-12 in his last four starts. Daniel Schneemann will bat seventh and play shortstop.

  • Guardians' Travis Bazzana: Receives $8.95 million bonus

    The Guardians signed Bazzana on Friday, Jim Callis of MLB.com reports.

    The first overall pick in the 2024 First-Year Player Draft, Bazzana has agreed to a signing bonus of $8.95 million, which is below the $9.25 million No. 2 overall pick Chase Burns received and well under the assigned $10.57 million slot value for the top pick. Bazzana is a lefty-hitting second baseman who could move through the Guardians' minor-league system quickly.

  • Guardians' Matthew Boyd: Ready for rehab assignment

    Boyd (elbow) began a rehab assignment Tuesday in the rookie-level Arizona Complex League, covering three innings and striking out seven while allowing an unearned run on three hits and one walk.

    Boyd signed a one-year contract with the Guardians last month and was immediately placed on the 15-day injured list as he continues to work his way back from June 2023 Tommy John surgery. The veteran southpaw will probably need most, if not all, of his allotted 30-day rehab window to get stretched back out, putting him on track for activation around mid-August if all goes well.
