Player Outlook
The Guardians didn't hand the reins over to the younger Bo Naylor until mid-June, but regardless he still racked up 2.4 fWAR as a 23-year-old rookie. An impressive athlete at the catcher position, Naylor made his presence felt both at the dish and behind it. He showed good power (11 homers, .232 ISO) and patience (13.0 BB%), finishing 24% better than league average by wRC+. Most enticing for rotisserie players: Naylor's speed. He went a perfect 5-for-5 on the basepaths, and while he's not a burner per se, he is a great runner relative to others at the position. That element of his game gives Naylor the chance to enter rarefied air in fantasy, if he gets the playing time. Cleveland brought Austin Hedges back to help with the workload, but Naylor's plus defense and hitting put him as the clear No. 1 on the depth chart entering 2024. He could surpass 400 plate appearances in a perfect world.

  • Guardians' Bo Naylor: Pops homer Thursday

    Naylor went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's 10-1 loss to the Tigers. Naylor produced the Guardians' lone run when he took Jack Flaherty deep in the third inning. This was Naylor's second homer in his last five games, though his playing time has taken a hit lately as he's started just three of those contests. The catcher is up to six homers with 24 RBI, 26 runs scored, two stolen bases, nine doubles, one triple and a .207/.276/.350 slash line over 225 plate appearances this season. Naylor is likely to continue sharing the catching duties with Austin Hedges, as David Fry has gotten more looks elsewhere in recent weeks.

  • Guardians' Bo Naylor: Tallies three hits in win

    Naylor went 3-for-4 with an RBI and three runs scored in a 10-8 win over the Orioles on Tuesday.

  • Guardians' Bo Naylor: Slugs homer in win

    Naylor went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Blue Jays. Naylor snapped a 25-game homer drought dating back to May 4. The catcher has struggled at the plate for much of the campaign, but he's gone a respectable 6-for-23 (.261) over his last seven contests. With the Guardians carrying three catchers, Naylor's margin for error at the plate is thin -- he doesn't have the defensive skill of Austin Hedges or the offensive consistency of David Fry in his favor. Naylor is slashing .184/.253/.291 with four homers, 15 RBI, 18 runs scored and one stolen base over 174 plate appearances.
