  • Guardians' Carlos Carrasco: Solid outing in loss

    Carrasco (3-7) took the loss against the Rays on Friday, allowing two runs (one earned) on six hits and one walk with three strikeouts over five innings.

    Carrasco battled Friday, but the Guardians were unable to get anything going against Taj Bradley. The veteran leaned on his offspeed offerings for 53 of his 82 pitches and has now yielded three earned runs or fewer in each of his past five starts. He will take a 5.02 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 68:26 K:BB across 86 innings into the All-Star break.

  • Guardians' Bo Naylor: On bench Friday

    Naylor is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Rays.

    Naylor will give way to Austin Hedges behind the dish after catching back-to-back games. Naylor has launched two homers in his last 10 at-bats and has a .626 OPS over 225 plate appearances in 2024.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: Taking seat Friday

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

    Rocchio will give way to the lefty-hitting Daniel Schneemann at shortstop with righty Taj Bradley on the mound for Tampa Bay. Rocchio went hitless in nine at-bats during the Guardians' four-game series against Detroit that finished Thursday.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: Taking seat Friday

    Brennan is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Rays.

    Brennan made his return from the injured list Thursday but went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in the Guardians' series finale against Detroit. He'll yield to Jhonkensy Noel in right field Friday.

  • Guardians' David Fry: Out of lineup Friday

    Fry is absent from the starting nine for Friday's game against the Rays.

    Fry is hitless in his last 11 at-bats and will get the night off Friday to clear his head. In his place, Angel Martinez will bat second and DH.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Back in bigs

    The Guardians recalled Curry from Triple-A Columbus on Friday.

    Curry will join the active roster in place of Sam Hentges (shoulder), who's been placed on the injured list. Curry has logged a 5.74 ERA across 15.2 innings with the Guardians this season.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: On IL with shoulder swelling

    The Guardians placed Hentges on the 15-day injured list Friday due to left shoulder inflammation, Joe Noga of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Hentges has appeared in 25 games after missing the first month of the season and owns a 3.04 ERA with nine holds across 23.2 innings. However, he'll be shelved until late July due to inflammation in his throwing shoulder. Xzavion Curry was recalled from Triple-A Columbus in a corresponding move.

  • 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' Spencer Howard: Struggles in team debut

    Howard (1-2) took the loss Thursday, allowing four runs on seven hits and three walks over three innings against the Tigers. He struck out four.

    It's a new team but a similar result for Howard, as he required 75 pitches to get through three frames. The right-hander was acquired from San Francisco last Friday and was making his debut for the Guardians after posting a 5.62 ERA and 1.83 WHIP in 24 innings for the Giants. He now has a 6.33 ERA and 2.00 WHIP for the campaign. Howard replaced Logan Allen, who was sent down to Triple-A, in the Guardians' rotation, but with the All-Star break looming, it remains to be seen how the club fills out their rotation to begin the second half.

  • Guardians' Josh Naylor: Getting afternoon off

    Naylor is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Tigers.

    Naylor had started in 13 straight contests dating back to June 27, so the Guardians will give the slugger a breather in the day game after a night game. David Fry checks in at first base in place of Naylor.

  • Guardians' Gabriel Arias: Heading to Triple-A

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

    The Guardians have valued Arias for his ability to play all over the infield and outfield during his time in the majors over parts of the last three seasons, but he had fallen out of favor lately, with recent call-ups Angel Martinez and Daniel Schneemann having supplanted him as superior utility options. Arias should get the opportunity to play on an everyday basis as he heads to Columbus, though it may take an injury to another Guardians position player or a downturn in performance from Martinez and/or Schneemann before Arias resurfaces in the big leagues.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: Returns from IL, starting Thursday

    The Guardians reinstated Brennan (rib cage) from the 10-day injured list Thursday. He'll start in right field and bat seventh in the Guardians' series finale in Detroit.

    Utility man Gabriel Arias was optioned to Triple-A Columbus to create room on the 26-man active roster for Brennan, who missed about two and a half weeks with rib cage inflammation. Brennan should step back into a strong-side platoon role in the corner outfield for the Guardians now that he's healthy again.

  • Guardians' Daniel Schneemann: Clubs fourth homer

    Schneemann went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Tigers.

    Schneemann got the Guardians within a run with his fourth-inning blast, but they couldn't pull even. The utility player has gone 4-for-20 (.200) across seven games in July, though all of those hits have gone for extra bases (two homers, two doubles). He's at a .247/.348/.506 slash line with four homers, 14 RBI, 10 runs scored, four doubles, two triples and one stolen base through 92 plate appearances. Schneemann continues to be an option at multiple positions, putting pressure on Jhonkensy Noel, Tyler Freeman and Brayan Rocchio as the Guardians have a number of different looks to fill out the bottom half of the order.

  • Guardians' Tanner Bibee: Struggles early in loss

    Bibee (7-4) took the loss against the Tigers on Wednesday, allowing four runs on five hits and three walks with eight strikeouts over seven innings.

    Bibee allowed two runs in the first inning and surrendered a two-run homer in the third before rebounding with four scoreless frames. The 25 year-old's velocity was over more than one mph below his season average, and he has yielded four earned runs in back-to-back outings to open July. He will take a 3.77 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 123:27 K:BB into the All-Star break.

  • Guardians' Steven Kwan: Gets aboard four times Tuesday

    Kwan went 3-for-5 with a walk and two runs scored in Tuesday's 9-8 extra-inning win over the Tigers.

    Kwan was one of three Guardians, along with Jose Ramirez and Josh Naylor, to log three hits Tuesday. That trio set the table for a potent offensive showing in the high-scoring game, just one day after Monday's 1-0 victory for the Tigers. Kwan is batting .324 (11-for-34) in July across eight games, and he's slashing .363/.418/.531 with nine home runs, 27 RBI, 54 runs scored and four stolen bases over 64 contests this season.
