Getting to Know Angel Martinez

A switch-hitting middle infielder who pulls fly balls. Sound familiar?

As Guardians fans hope for the best for Gabriel Arias and his family in whatever emergency situation they face, they also root for Angel Martinez to enjoy the fruits of his hard work in a successful major league debut, having been called up to the 26-man roster today.

Martinez was signed as a 16 year-old out of the Dominican Republic by the Guardians in 2018. For his...

Guardians Recall Top-Ten Prospect for MLB Debut

The Cleveland Guardians will be without Gabriel Arias, who has been placed on the family medical emergency list. In a corresponding move, the club will recall infielder Angel Martínez from Triple-A Columbus, who will make his major league debut as soon as he gets into a game.

Guardians Are Quietly Have a Great Season

The Cleveland Guardians currently have a record of 46-26. And despite that, they still have a relatively low profile. The Guardians manage to be competitive year after year despite having relatively meager resources.

News and Notes for Friday, June 21st, 2024

Happy Will Brennansday to all who observe!

Will Brennan hit two home runs and Andres Gimenez hit a clutch two-run homer late as the Guardians beat the Mariners 6-3 to win a series against the AL Central leaders.

Logan Allen allowed a couple homers and walked four, but was generally more effective at inducing weak contact, going six innings. Allen has made some pitch mix adjustments that appear to be helping...

Steven Kwan’s Quiet Chase For .400

One of the more underrated storylines developing in the 2024 MLB season is Steven Kwan and his quiet chase for a .400 batting average. The Cleveland Guardians left fielder has the chance to do something that has not been done in Major League Baseball since 1941 when Ted Williams did it.

It’s long been discussed, but will this be the summer the Guardians expend some prospect capital or bullpen wealth to acquire a right-fielder who can hit in the middle of a lineup?

News and Notes - Bibee Hits Career High Strikeouts in Victory Over Seattle

The Guardians blanked Seattle to end the 3 game losing streak and improve their record to 45-26.

The Cleveland Guardians can take a deep breath after a dominant outing last night against the Seattle Mariners. Tanner Bibee was absolutely lights out for the Guardians. There’s only so many words that can be used to describe what Bibee did to Seattle’s offense. Coming off of a great start that had an undesirable ending in Cincinnati,...

The Making of a Reliever - Middle, Late, and Closers

A more technical look into what makes a successful middle reliever and late reliever/closer.

When I tell you to imagine the bullpen, you probably think of the collection of 10 or so guys that come on to pitch whenever the starter is done for the day. What if I told you this bullpen consists of two very distinct groups of pitchers? While everyone in the bullpen is a relief pitcher, they are either considered a middle reliever or a late-inning reliever/closer.

In this article, I’ve taken...

Kyle Manzardo optioned to AAA

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

morning N&N for June 19

Guardians fans were an angry bunch yesterday. First, Kyle Manzardo was optioned to AAA. Additionally, because yesterday was Tuesday, Triston McKenzie was the Cleveland starting pitcher. McKenzie has been much better than he’s been given credit for this season, but his start last night was quite bad.

Despite hitting like a mixture of Abe Almonte and Billy Hamilton (So many doubles! Not many homers! So many fly balls!), Manzardo is a fan...
