  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Clears waivers, heads to Triple-A

    Straw cleared waivers Sunday and will report to Triple-A Columbus, Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Straw was waived Friday, and unsurprisingly, no other teams were interested in putting in a claim for an outfielder who hit a paltry .239 and slugged just .302 over parts of three seasons in Cleveland. He has strong speed and defense, but it'll likely take an injury to another Guardians outfielder for Straw to get back in the majors.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Left off Opening Day roster

    Straw is not on the Guardians' Opening Day roster, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    The Guardians placed Straw on waivers Friday, and the team has now officially announced its intentions to begin the season without him as part of its outfield unit. Straw is owed roughly $20 million over the next three years, so he will most likely clear waivers and head to Triple-A while Cleveland keeps Estevan Florial, Tyler Freeman and Ramon Laureano as its options in center field.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Placed on waivers

    Straw has been placed on waivers by the Guardians, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    Straw will undoubtedly clear waivers given that he's still owed about $20 million over the next three years, but he has a minor-league option remaining and it sounds like he could be left off the Opening Day roster. If that's the case, the Guardians would appear ready to roll with a combination of Estevan Florial, Ramon Laureano and Tyler Freeman in center field.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Back in lineup

    Straw (illness) is starting in center field and batting second in Sunday's Cactus League game against the Reds.

    The 29-year-old has been battling a viral infection for nearly two weeks, but he'll return to game action Sunday. Straw had a .238/.301/.297 slash line with 20 steals in 147 games last season and remains the favorite to start in center field Opening Day, but Estevan Florial is also pushing for the job.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Out with viral infection

    Straw is being held out of action due to a viral infection, Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    It's not clear how long Straw has been under the weather, but he last played in a Grapefruit League game Tuesday. Consider him day-to-day. Straw is attempting to hold off Estevan Florial for the Guardians' center field job.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Fourth straight multi-hit game

    Straw went 2-for-3 with a steal and a walk in Saturday's 8-0 loss to the Tigers.

    Straw reached base three times in the contest but was left stranded on each occasion as the Guardians got shut out on the road. The center fielder has now recorded two hits in four consecutive games, though he's surprisingly failed to score or drive in a run over that stretch. He also swiped a bag for the second straight game to give him 20 stolen bases for the season, with 10 of those coming in September.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Posts steal Friday

    Straw went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Friday's 7-5 win over the Tigers.

    Straw is showing some life at the plate with three straight multi-hit efforts. Before this outburst, he'd gone just 6-for-46 (.130) over his first 18 games in September. The center fielder has maintained decent speed with 19 steals in 25 attempts this season, but his paltry .235/.297/.294 slash line with one home run, 29 RBI and 52 runs scored have left plenty to be desired. Despite the poor numbers, he's played in 146 contests.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Regaining playing time

    Straw will start in center field and bat ninth in Monday's game against the Royals.

    Straw looked to be moving into more of a part-time role earlier this month, but he appears to have since settled back in as the Guardians' preferred option in center field while Ramon Laureano has found himself on the bench more frequently. However, since he's slashing just .114/.158/.143 thus far in September, Straw is far from guaranteed to hold down a regular lineup spot for the rest of the season.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Nabs steal in win

    Straw went 1-for-4 with a walk, an RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's 10-7 extra-innings win over the Blue Jays.

    Straw went eight games between steals, hitting. 286 (6-for-21) in that span. The outfielder is up to 16 thefts on the season, five shy of matching his total from 152 games last year. He's added a .239/.305/.300 slash line with a home run, 25 RBI, 47 runs scored, 15 doubles and three triples while regularly hitting at the bottom of the order. The Guardians have faced five southpaws in their last seven games, helping the right-handed hitting Straw to stay in the lineup, though he's also started against both right-handers in that span.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Gets maintenance day

    Straw is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers.

    Ramon Laureano will pick up the start in center field while Straw heads to the bench after starting in four of the past five games. Straw is slashing just .247/.301/.306 in 30 games since the All-Star break and could be at risk of losing playing time to Laureano if he's unable to stage a major turnaround at the plate over his next handful of starts.

  • Guardians' Myles Straw: Swipes two bags

    Straw went 1-for-2 with two walks, two stolen bases and a run scored in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Reds.

    Amid reduced playing time in August, Straw has gone 7-for-28 (.250) with three walks and three steals over 10 games this month. The outfielder is now at a .237/.303/.301 slash line with a home run, 15 steals, 23 RBI, 44 runs scored, 15 doubles and three triples over 114 contests. Ramon Laureano is hitting just .174 since the Guardians claimed him off waivers from the Athletics, which may be the only reason why Straw hasn't lost his starting job in center field altogether.
