Player Outlook
The Guardians are one of the cheapest teams in the league, so while Brayan Rocchio doesn't project to perform like an everyday-caliber player in 2024, he may still get those opportunities. The switch-hitting shortstop has been a quality prospect dating back to an impressive pro debut as a teenager in 2018, but despite posting ISO's over .160 and slugging percentages over .425 across High-A and Double-A in 2021 and 2022, his power output has declined steeply since reaching Triple-A and the majors. It's possible he was able to get himself into more hitter's counts that allowed him to swing for the fences more against High-A and Double-A pitching and that has not carried over against pitchers with better control. Aside from limited raw power, Rocchio has a lot going for him. He is an excellent defensive infielder who had an 11.2 percent walk rate and 12.3 percent strikeout rate with 25 steals in 116 games at Triple-A. Barring an offseason acquisition of a more seasoned big-league shortstop, Rocchio could be Cleveland's starter at the position while likely hitting in the bottom third of the lineup.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: Notches first steal

    Rocchio went 1-for-3 with a walk, one RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in Monday's 6-0 win over the Red Sox. Rocchio has just two hits over his last six contests, but he was able to draw a walk Monday for the first time since April 4. He's maintained the starting job at shortstop through his recent slump, though Gabriel Arias is starting to hit well and could pose a threat to Rocchio's playing time. For the season, Rocchio is batting .224 with one steal on two attempts, three RBI, five runs scored and six doubles over 53 plate appearances.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: Heads to bench Sunday

    Rocchio is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Yankees. The switch-hitting Rocchio will take a seat in favor of the righty-hitting Gabriel Arias, who gets the nod at shortstop with southpaw Nestor Cortes on the hill. Rocchio had started each of the previous three contests, going 1-for-11 with a double to drop his season-long average to .227.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: Sitting out Tuesday

    Rocchio is absent from the lineup for Tuesday's tilt against the White Sox. It's a routine day off for Rocchio, who has now started nine of 11 contests at shortstop for the Guardians this season. Gabriel Arias will get the call at short Tuesday.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: Not starting Sunday

    Rocchio is out of the lineup for Sunday's game at Oakland. Rocchio went 3-for-11 with three doubles, two RBI and two runs while starting the first three games of the season, but he'll head to the bench Sunday. Gabriel Arias will man shortstop and bat ninth in the series finale.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: Wins shortstop job

    Guardians manager Stephen Vogt said Friday that Rocchio will begin the season receiving the "bulk" of the playing time at shortstop, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports. The 23-year-old is one of Cleveland's top prospects and had a decent showing during spring training with a .270/.308/.459 slash line in 13 games. Rocchio hit just seven home runs in 116 games at Triple-A Columbus last season, but he hit .280, stole 25 bases and had a 60:66 BB:K, so he could get on base enough to provide fantasy managers some value on the basepaths.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: Competing for starting spot

    Rocchio is competing with Gabriel Arias for the Guardians' starting shortstop job, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Both Rocchio and Arias are inexperienced options, and while Arias struggled at the plate in 2023, Rocchio wasn't much better. The 23-year-old batted .247 with a .600 OPS, eight RBI, nine runs scored and six doubles over 86 plate appearances. This is one of the more even battles for Cleveland, though Rocchio has a full season of Triple-A ball under his belt and will need to be tested in the majors in the near future.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: Recalled from Columbus

    Cleveland recalled Rocchio from Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday. Rocchio will start at shortstop and bat sixth Wednesday against the Reds as Gabriel Arias heads to an early shutdown because of a fractured wrist. Rocchio, 22, has flashed good speed this season at the Triple-A level but carries a rough .242/.271/.303 batting line with 22 strikeouts through his first 70 major-league plate appearances.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Guardians optioned Rocchio to Triple-A Columbus on Thursday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports. Rocchio was recalled from Columbus on Aug. 2 and slashed .271/.308/.354 through 52 plate appearances during his latest stint in the majors. He'll be replaced on the active roster by Cam Gallagher (concussion), who returned from the 7-day injured list Thursday, but Rocchio could make a quick return to the majors once rosters expand in September.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: Not in Tuesday's lineup

    Rocchio is absent from the lineup for Tuesday's contest versus the Dodgers. Rocchio and Gabriel Arias have shared the shortstop job for the Guardians since the trade of Amed Rosario, and it will be Arias at the position for this one after Rocchio had started four of the previous five games there. The 22-year-old Rocchio has collected a .610 OPS over 18 games for Cleveland this season.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: Posts three hits in loss

    Rocchio went 3-for-4 in Wednesday's 7-2 loss to the Reds. Rocchio has multiple hits in three of his last seven games, though this was the first time he was in the lineup since Saturday. The shortstop is batting .288 with a .674 OPS, no home runs, four RBI, six runs scored and no stolen bases through 55 plate appearances. With Jose Tena optioned to Triple-A Columbus, Rocchio will compete with Gabriel Arias and Tyler Freeman for playing time at shortstop going forward.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: Sitting Sunday

    Rocchio isn't in the Guardians' lineup Sunday against the Rays. Rocchio is batting .304 (7-for-23) over his last seven games and will sit out Sunday's series finale after an 0-for-4 effort Saturday. Jose Tena will draw the start at shortstop instead and bat ninth, and Gabriel Arias will start at third base.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: Drives in two Thursday

    Rocchio went 2-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Blue Jays. Rocchio's two doubles each knocked in a run. The infield prospect has been in the lineup regularly at shortstop lately with Gabriel Arias seeing more time at first base since Josh Naylor (oblique) and David Fry (hamstring) went on the injured list. Over 41 plate appearances this season, Rocchio has hit .275 with a .668 OPS, four doubles, three RBI and four runs scored. It's possible Rocchio could go back to splitting time at shortstop with Arias once the Guardians' lineup is healthier.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: Nabs fourth straight start

    Rocchio will start at third base and bat seventh in Sunday's game against the White Sox. He'll stick in the lineup for a fourth straight game, with two starts coming at shortstop and two coming at third base. The Guardians haven't indicated whether Rocchio or Gabriel Arias will end up settling in as their everyday third baseman, but the team could have room for both players on the left side of the infield during the upcoming week if Jose Ramirez is suspended for throwing punches in Saturday's loss to the White Sox. Major League Baseball has yet to rule on the matter, and Ramirez will be included in the lineup Sunday as Cleveland's designated hitter.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: Recalled from Columbus

    Cleveland recalled Rocchio from Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday. The 22-year-old will jump right into the Guardians' starting lineup at third base Wednesday versus the Astros as Jose Ramirez serves as Cleveland's designated hitter. Rocchio is 3-for-14 with no extra-base hits so far at the major-league level, but he's registered a solid .291/.383/.417 batting line with three homers and 19 steals across 89 games this season in Triple-A. The Guardians have been leaning on Gabriel Arias as their primary option at shortstop since trading Amed Rosario to the Dodgers last week, but Rocchio could end up getting a look at that position while he's up with the big club.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: Sent down to Triple-A

    Rocchio was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Monday. Josh Bell is expected back from paternity leave Tuesday against the Red Sox, so Rocchio is headed back to the minors. The rookie infielder has had a few stints in the big leagues but hasn't been given much of an opportunity to this point.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: Back in majors

    The Guardians recalled Rocchio from Triple-A Columbus on Friday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports. The 22-year-old prospect will return to the big leagues while Josh Bell spends a maximum of three days on the paternity list. Rocchio holds an .863 OPS in Triple-A this season through 207 plate appearances, but his minor-league success has yet to translate to the majors.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: Returns to Triple-A

    The Guardians optioned Rocchio to Triple-A Columbus on Friday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports. With Jose Ramirez returning from the bereavement list Friday, Rocchio will return to Triple-A to continue his development. The switch-hitting prospect went 2-for-10 at the plate in his first three major-league games and collected his first career RBI on Thursday. If he continues his .338/.396/.486 pace in Columbus, it's very possible Rocchio finds himself back in Cleveland before long, although he might need an injury in the team's infield to get consistent playing time.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: Receiving promotion

    The Guardians will recall Rocchio from Triple-A Columbus prior to Tuesday's game against the White Sox, Daniel Alvarez-Montes of ElExtraBase.com reports. It's not clear at this point what the corresponding move will be. Rocchio was up with the big club briefly last month but didn't make an appearance. The 22-year-old is batting .338/.396/.487 with one home run and 10 stolen bases at Columbus this season. Rocchio has played both middle-infield spots in 2023 and has some experience at third base, as well. The top prospect would make for an interesting fantasy add if he played regularly, but there wouldn't seem to be a path to that right now.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: Promotion on tap

    The Guardians are expected to call up Rocchio from Triple-A Columbus prior to Wednesday's game against the Tigers, Daniel Alvarez-Montes of ElExtraBase.com reports. Cleveland's top hitting prospect, Rocchio has gotten off to a blazing start at Columbus, slashing .344/.414/.459 with seven extra-base hits (all doubles) and four stolen bases across 70 plate appearances so far this season. The Guardians haven't confirmed his promotion or announced any corresponding moves, but Rocchio is presumably in line to step in as the team's top option at shortstop while Amed Rosario (back) is on the mend from an injury. The extent of Rosario's injury may dictate how long Rocchio sticks with the big club, though if the 22-year-old switch hitter excels in his first exposure to the majors, it's possible he sticks around in Cleveland for a longer period of time than anticipated.

  • Guardians' Brayan Rocchio: Finishes strong in Triple-A

    Rocchio put up a .257/.336/.420 line with 18 homers, 14 steals (on 23 attempts) and a 54:102 BB:K over 132 games spread across Double-A and Triple-A this season. After putting up a .780 OPS in Double-A, Rocchio posted just a .234/.298/.387 batting line for Triple-A Columbus after being promoted in late August. However, he finished strong, going 6-for-21 (.286) with a homer and a 4:3 BB:K over his final six games of 2022. The 21-year-old is an intriguing prospect who has a great chance to grow into an everyday big-league shortstop.
