  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Returns to minors

    The Guardians optioned Palacios to Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday.

    Cleveland will swap Palacios off the 28-man active roster for another rookie outfielder in Will Brennan, whose contract was selected from Triple-A. Palacios had started just once in the Guardians' last 12 games, so he'll get the chance to pick up regular at-bats at Columbus before the International League season wraps up.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Notches steal

    Palacios drew a walk and stole a base in Friday's 4-3 win over the Twins.

    Palacios pinch hit for Luke Maile in the eighth inning and stole second, though he was left on base. Playing time has been scarce for Palacios, who has started just five games since he was called up Aug. 23. With Steven Kwan, Myles Straw and Oscar Gonzalez entrenched as the Guardians' preferred outfield from left to right, Palacios is unlikely to see many additional opportunities to close out the year. He's slashing .241/.303/.296 with two steals, 10 RBI, seven runs scored and six doubles through 119 plate appearances.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Promoted, starting Tuesday

    Palacios was recalled from Triple-A Columbus and will bat seventh as the designated hitter Tuesday against the Padres.

    Palacios was sent down by the Guardians in early July, but he'll rejoin the big-league club Tuesday and immediately enter the starting nine. The 25-year-old has appeared in 39 games in his first taste of the majors this year and has a .250/.312/.310 slash line with 10 RBI, six runs and a stolen base.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Sent down Friday

    Palacios was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Friday.

    Palacios drew starts in the last three games and went 2-for-8 with a walk and a strikeout. However, he'll head to the minors after Nolan Jones was called up Friday. Jones should serve as the Guardians' primary right fielder while Oscar Gonzalez (abdomen) is on the injured list.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: On bench for matinee

    Palacios isn't starting the first game of Monday's doubleheader against the Tigers.

    Even though right-hander Garrett Hill is on the mound during Monday's matinee, Palacios will be out of the lineup for a third consecutive game. Franmil Reyes is shifting to right field while Gabriel Arias enters the lineup at the hot corner.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Sitting Sunday against lefty

    Palacios is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Yankees.

    The lefty-hitting Palacios is projected to see an uptick in playing time after everyday right fielder Oscar Gonzalez (abdomen) was moved to the injured list Saturday, but Palacios will take a seat for the series finale with southpaw Jordan Montgomery on the hill for New York. The righty-hitting Ernie Clement will instead start alongside Myles Straw and Steven Kwan in the Guardians outfield. Clement and Palacios could end up forming a platoon while Gonzalez is out, with Clement set to benefit from the larger share of starting chances as the left-handed hitter.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Playing time remains limited

    Palacios is hitting .188 (6-for-32) with four walks since the start of June.

    With Oscar Gonzalez (abdomen) on the injured list, it wouldn't be surprising to see Palacios pick up a little more playing time in the short term. He's started two of the last three games, but he'll need to hit to keep himself in the mix in the corner outfield. Palacios' primary competitor for starts is likely to be Ernie Clement. Palacios is slashing .253/.313/.320 with no home runs, a stolen base, 10 RBI and five runs scored through 82 plate appearances.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Playing time sparse

    Palacios has started just four of 13 games in June.

    While he occasionally comes off the bench, he's gone just 4-for-15 (.267) with two doubles, four RBI and a run scored in eight games in June. The 25-year-old outfielder has simply been crowded out of the regular mix, as Myles Straw and Oscar Gonzalez have grabbed everyday roles while Steven Kwan and Oscar Mercado have functioned as a platoon in left field. Palacios' playing time is likely to be limited to the odd start versus right-handed pitchers -- he's yet to start against a southpaw all season.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Recalled by Cleveland

    Palacios was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Thursday.

    The 25-year-old spent nearly a week in the minors, but he'll rejoin the Guardians as part of a move after Franmil Reyes (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday. Palacios has appeared in 12 big-league games this year and has hit .270 with a double, two RBI, a run and a stolen base. He should serve mainly as outfield depth during Reyes' absence.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Optioned to Triple-A

    Palacios was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Friday, Joe Noga of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Palacios spent a week on the major-league roster while Josh Naylor was on the COVID-19 injured list. He appeared in three games, going 3-for-10 at the plate while stealing a base, but he'll return to the minors with Naylor now back with the team.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Two hits, steal in loss

    Palacios went 2-for-3 with a stolen base in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Twins.

    Palacios was the only Guardian hitter to post multiple hits Sunday, and he also recorded his first major-league steal. The outfielder has appeared in 10 games this season, and he's hit safely in seven of them. He owns a .300/.344/.333 slash line with two RBI and a double across 32 plate appearances, though his time in the majors may be limited to as long as Josh Naylor is on the COVID-19 injured list.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Rejoins big club

    Palacios was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Friday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

    The 24-year-old was demoted to Columbus on Sunday but will rejoin the big-league club with Josh Naylor (undisclosed) landing on the COVID-19 IL and reliever Kirk McCarty being optioned. Palacios should serve as a reserve option in the outfield while back up in the majors.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Heads back to minors

    The Guardians optioned Palacios to Triple-A Columbus on Sunday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

    With Cleveland needing to bring up a starting pitcher (Konnor Pilkington) from Triple-A Columbus for Sunday's series finale with the Blue Jays and the team also in need of another bullpen arm (Kirk McCarty) to offer length behind him, Palacios was an expendable piece for the big club. The 24-year-old outfielder started in seven of the Guardians' 12 games following his April 25 call-up, going 7-for-27 (.259 average) with two walks, a double and two RBI.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Picks up another start

    Palacios will start in left field and bat eighth in Thursday's game against the Blue Jays.

    With Josh Naylor moving to first base while Owen Miller gets Thursday off, Palacios will enter the Guardians outfield for the third time in four games. The rookie has started in six of Cleveland's 11 games overall since receiving a promotion from Triple-A Columbus and is slashing .316/.381/.368 with two RBI through his first 21 big-league plate appearances.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Two hits in big-league debut

    Palacios went 2-for-3 in Monday's 3-0 loss to the Angels.

    Monday's contest was Palacios' big-league debut -- he filled in for fellow rookie Steven Kwan (hamstring) in left field. The Guardians ran into a stingy performance from Michael Lorenzen and the Angels' bullpen, with Palacios being the only batter to rack up multiple hits for the visitors. The 24-year-old should get a chance to play at least semi-regularly as long as he's in the majors, though he may be limited to hitting in the bottom half of the order.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Promoted, starting Monday

    Palacios was called up from Triple-A Columbus and is starting in left field Monday against the Angels.

    Palacios has a .749 OPS through 14 games with Columbus this season and will make his way to the big-league club after missing out on the Opening Day roster. Steven Kwan exited Sunday's game with a hamstring injury and is out of the lineup Monday, and playing time could be available for Palacios until Kwan is able to return.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Optioned to minors

    Palacios was optioned to minor-league camp Sunday.

    Palacios joined Cleveland's 40-man roster in November but was unable to make the Opening Day roster. He finished 2021 at Triple-A Columbus and hit .289/.431/.412 in 37 games and could make his major-league debut this season.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Added to 40-man roster

    Palacios was added to Cleveland's 40-man roster Friday.

    Palacios has upped his prospect stock with a strong Arizona Fall League (.871 OPS) and is nearly ready for the big leagues. He can play second base but fits best in left field, given Cleveland's organizational depth.

  • Indians' Richard Palacios: Back in action

    Palacios (hamstring) has gone 1-for-8 with a solo home run in three games since he was activated from the injured list.

    Palacios missed about two weeks with a left hamstring strain. He's posted a .259/.368/.397 slash line with five stolen bases across 19 games at Triple-A Columbus after earning a midseason promotion from Double-A Akron.

  • Indians' Richard Palacios: Dealing with hamstring injury

    Palacios was placed on the 7-day injured list Thursday at Triple-A Columbus with a left hamstring strain.

    Palacios has put together a solid season, slashing .296/.389/.476 with six home runs, 42 RBI, 61 runs scored and 15 stolen bases in 82 games. The last 16 of those contests have come at Columbus after he began the year with Double-A Akron. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined by the hamstring strain.
