  • Guardians' Estevan Florial: Outrighted to Triple-A

    The Guardians outrighted Florial to Triple-A Columbus on Friday after he cleared waivers.

    Florial was designated for assignment last week after slashing just .173/.264/.367 with a 36.9 percent strikeout rate in his first 36 games with Cleveland. While no longer on the 40-man roster, he will remain in the organization as outfield depth.

  • Guardians' Estevan Florial: DFA'd by Cleveland

    Cleveland designated Florial for assignment Friday, Joe Noga of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    With Steven Kwan (hamstring) returning from the 10-day injured list, Florial will be the one removed to open up a spot on the 26-man roster. The 26-year-old outfielder is slashing .173/.264/.367 with 11 RBI across 36 games with Cleveland this year, and his next landing spot will be at Triple-A Columbus if he clears the waiver process.

  • Guardians' Estevan Florial: In lineup, but losing work vs. RHPs

    Florial will start in left field and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Mets.

    Though the lefty-hitting Florial is starting against a southpaw (Jose Quintana), the Guardians have seemingly pulled the plug on the 26-year-old being a regular part of the lineup versus right-handed pitching. Florial started just once while Cleveland opposed righty starters in each of the previous five contests.

  • Guardians' Estevan Florial: Day off Saturday

    Florial is not in the starting lineup Saturday versus the Twins.

    Florial will take a seat for a second straight game after he went 1-for-10 with a double, a walk, three strikeouts and two runs scored over the team's three-game series with the Rangers. David Fry will draw the start in left field and bat fifth against Minnesota.

  • Guardians' Estevan Florial: Leading off in second straight game

    Florial will start in left field and bat leadoff in Monday's game against the Tigers.

    After going 1-for-4 with a stolen base while serving as the Guardians' leadoff man and designated hitter in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Angels, Florial will get another turn atop the order Monday. He'll also be drawing the start in left field in place of Steven Kwan, who was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday with a hamstring strain that will likely keep him sidelined for four weeks. Even before Kwan's injury, the lefty-hitting Florial had already been moving into a regular spot in the lineup against right-handed pitching, but Kwan's absence should give Florial a clearer path to occupying a prominent spot in the lineup.

  • Guardians' Estevan Florial: Notches second steal

    Florial went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Angels.

    Florial had sat out the last two games amid a 1-for-16 slump, during which he had eight strikeouts and two walks. The 26-year-old may have a clearer path to at-bats with Steven Kwan (hamstring) heading to the injured list, though prospect Kyle Manzardo will also command a large role. On the season, Florial is slashing .200/.284/.417 with three home runs, two steals, nine RBI and five runs scored over 68 plate appearances. He'll likely continue to see most of his playing time versus right-handed pitchers with turns as the designated hitter and right fielder.

  • Guardians' Estevan Florial: Sits down against lefty

    Florial isn't in the Guardians' lineup Saturday against the Angels.

    The left-handed bat of Florial will step out of the lineup Saturday as southpaw Reid Detmers prepares to start for the Halos. His absence will move Bo Naylor into the DH role while Austin Hedges draws a start at catcher.

  • Guardians' Estevan Florial: Not starting Friday

    Florial is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Angels.

    Florial will get a rare off day against a right-handed pitcher, with Jose Ramirez filling in at DH and Gabriel Arias playing third against the Angels' Jose Soriano. Time on the bench against RHP could become more common though, as Florial has stumbled to a .196 batting average and a 40.6 percent strikeout rate through 20 games and 64 plate appearances.

  • Guardians' Estevan Florial: Lifts game-tying homer

    Florial went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run and a walk in Tuesday's 10-9 extra-inning loss to the Astros.

    Florial's sixth-inning blast tied the game at 8-8. It was his third homer of the year and his first against a team other than the Yankees. Florial's playing time has been slipping recently, mostly as a byproduct of David Fry working his way into the lineup more frequently. The right-handed Fry, a natural catcher, will occasionally serve as the designated hitter or push one of the Guardians' regulars into that spot at Florial's expense. For the year, Florial is batting just .229 with an .827 OPS through 56 plate appearances.

  • Guardians' Estevan Florial: On bench against righty

    Florial is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta.

    The lefty-hitting Florial finds himself on the bench for the third time in four games, with two of those absences coming against right-handed pitching. Florial appeared to have recently supplanted Ramon Laureano for a regular spot in the lineup as the Guardians' top option at designated hitter, but manager Stephen Vogt looks like he may just prefer to have a number of different players rotate at that spot.

  • Guardians' Estevan Florial: Taking seat Thursday

    Florial is out of the lineup for Thursday's tilt against the Red Sox.

    Florial had started four of the previous five games versus right-handers but will take a seat Thursday against righty Chase Anderson. Jose Ramirez will get a day out of the infield and serve as the Guardians' designated hitter Thursday while Florial is on the bench.

  • Guardians' Estevan Florial: Gets second straight start

    Florial will serve as the Guardians' designated hitter and No. 7 batter in Wednesday's game against the Red Sox.

    Florial will get his second straight start against a right-handed starting pitcher (Cooper Criswell) after he went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and an RBI in Tuesday's 4-1 win. The 26-year-old looks to be gaining traction as Cleveland's primary designated hitter.

  • Guardians' Estevan Florial: Sits down versus southpaw

    Florial isn't in the Guardians' lineup for Saturday's game against the Athletics.

    With lefty Alex Wood set to start on the mound for Oakland, the left-handed bat of Florial will begin Saturday's contest in the dugout. His absence will move Josh Naylor into the DH spot while David Fry picks up a start at first base and bats second.

  • Guardians' Estevan Florial: Three-hit effort Friday

    Florial went 3-for-4 with a double, one RBI and one run scored in Friday's 10-2 win over the Athletics.

    This was Florial's first multi-hit effort of the season. After a slow start, he's hit safely in four of his last six games while driving in all five of his RBI over that span. The outfielder is batting .235 with two home runs, a stolen base and four runs scored over 39 plate appearances, but it appears he is gaining traction as a regular in the lineup versus right-handed pitchers.

  • Guardians' Estevan Florial: Playing time trending up

    Florial will start in right field and bat seventh in Monday's game in Boston.

    It's the fourth straight start against a right-hander for Florial, and in the game he didn't start versus a lefty he came off the bench to hit a pinch-hit home run. Florial is 2-for-9 with two home runs and a 4:2 K:BB over that stretch. Ramon Laureano and Will Brennan will be on the bench Monday.

  • Guardians' Estevan Florial: Goes yard again

    Florial hit a solo home run as a pinch hitter in Sunday's 8-7 extra-inning win over the Yankees.

    Florial enjoyed a vengeful weekend, hitting his first two homers of the season against his former team over the last two days. The outfielder is still batting .190 through 25 plate appearances, to go with a 4:10 BB:K, but it looks like he's starting to build some momentum. Florial remains in a crowded competition for playing time between center field, right field and designated hitter, and he should have chances to draw into the lineup at least versus right-handed pitchers.

  • Guardians' Estevan Florial: Lifts homer in nightcap

    Florial went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Saturday's 8-2 loss to the Yankees in the second game of a doubleheader.

    Florial went 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts in the matinee before getting his third hit and first homer as a Guardian -- against his former organization -- in the nightcap. The outfielder is still hitting a paltry .150 with one stolen base, one RBI, two runs scored and a triple over 24 plate appearances. Florial is competing with Ramon Laureano, Tyler Freeman and Will Brennan for playing time between center field, right field and designated hitter, and none of them have made compelling cases to grab a starting role so far.

  • Guardians' Estevan Florial: Won't start Saturday vs. A's

    Florial is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against Oakland.

    Florial started at DH against right-hander Ross Stripling on Friday and finished 0-for-3 with one walk, one stolen base and two strikeouts. Against left-hander JP Sears on Saturday, Florial will head back to the bench, while Jose Ramirez moves to DH and Gabriel Arias starts at third base.
