  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Demoted to Triple-A

    The Guardians optioned Curry to Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday, Joe Noga of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Despite tossing five innings of two-hit, shutout ball in his return from the 15-day injured list in Monday's 6-0 win over the Red Sox, Curry will end up moving back to Triple-A just two days later. With injuries having already tested the Guardians' rotation depth early on this season, Curry could end up staying on a regular starting schedule in Columbus. Curry doesn't look like he'll be the top choice to take Gavin Williams' (elbow) spot in the rotation, however, as Ben Lively (illness) will come off the 15-day IL to start Wednesday and could continue to make regular starts until Williams is ready to make his season debut.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Allows zero runs in season debut

    Curry allowed two hits and one walk over five scoreless innings but did not factor into the decision during Monday's 6-0 win over the Red Sox. He struck out three.

    Curry was sharp during his first appearance of the season, matching Boston starter Kutter Crawford by piling up zeroes on the board, but the run support didn't come in time to allow him to walk away with the victory. Curry was activated prior to Monday's start after beginning the season dealing with a viral illness and is expected to take on a long-relief role moving forward. However, if he can string together more effective performances like his effort on Monday, Curry could see an opportunity in Cleveland's rotation.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Activated for Monday's start

    Curry (illness) was activated from the 15-day injured list Monday.

    Curry got a late start to the season because of a viral illness, but he is ready to go now and will make a spot start Monday in Boston. The right-hander is likely to shift to a long relief role following Monday's outing.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: In line to start Monday

    The Guardians will activate Curry (illness) from the 15-day injured list to start Monday's game against the Red Sox, Mandy Bell of reports.

    Cleveland will be welcoming two new additions to its rotation this week, as Ben Lively (illness) is in line to return from the IL to start Wednesday's game in Boston. The Guardians are expected to have room for only one of the two pitchers in the rotation after the four-game series with the Red Sox, however, as a doubleheader with the Yankees on Saturday created a temporary need for a sixth starter. Curry, who stretched out to 4.1 innings in his latest rehab start with Triple-A Columbus this past Wednesday, would likely serve in a long-relief role if he's moved to the bullpen following Monday's start.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Completes second rehab start

    Curry (illness) struck out one and allowed one earned run on five hits and three walks over 4.1 innings in his second rehab start with Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday.

    Curry threw 59 pitches during the outing and looks poised to return from the 15-day injured list during the Guardians' upcoming series in Boston that begins Monday. Though Curry looked poised to begin the season in the Cleveland bullpen before falling victim to a viral illness, he could get a chance to slot in the rotation if he returns from the IL during the upcoming week. A doubleheader Saturday with the Yankees creates a temporary need for a sixth starter, and Curry could be called upon to fill the void either Tuesday or Wednesday in Boston.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Strong in rehab appearance

    Curry (illness) allowed a hit and a walk while striking out seven over 2.2 innings in his rehab start Thursday versus Triple-A Omaha.

    Curry came down with a respiratory virus late in spring training, so he's getting back up to speed in the minors. The right-hander is not guaranteed to join the major-league roster once activated from the injured list -- it's possible the Guardians option him to Triple-A Columbus to allow him to continue to build up as a starter, or they could keep him in the big-league bullpen as a multi-inning reliever.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Goes on IL with illness

    The Guardians placed Curry on the 15-day injured list Thursday with a viral illness.

    Curry and Ben Lively are opening the season on the shelf due to a respiratory virus that made its way around the Cleveland clubhouse during spring training, according to Curry will be eligible for activation April 9 and could serve as a multi-inning option out of the bullpen once he's healthy.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Mixed results in spring

    Curry has allowed four runs on eight hits while striking out four and walking none over eight innings across three Cactus League appearances.

    Curry has started two of his three outings. The 25-year-old appears set for a swingman role in 2024, though a lot could hinge on the status of Gavin Williams (elbow) and his availability to begin the campaign. Curry started nine of his 41 appearances last season and stayed in the majors for the whole season since the Guardians' rotation was plagued by injuries. He was solid with a 4.07 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 67:30 K:BB over 95 innings. Curry won't be much of a fantasy option out of the bullpen given his low strikeout numbers, but there's no clear path to the rotation for now.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Takes extra-inning loss

    Curry (3-4) allowed an unearned run and walked two batters over one-third of an inning, taking the extra-inning loss versus the Giants on Wednesday.

    Curry's two walks loaded the bases, and LaMonte Wade's sacrifice fly was enough for the Giants to walk it off in the 10th inning. This was Curry's second consecutive relief appearance. The right-hander has pitched to a 4.10 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 61:26 K:BB through 85.2 innings over 36 appearances (nine starts) this season. There's currently no room for him in Cleveland's rotation, and with Shane Bieber (elbow) still a possibility to return before the end of the year, Curry will likely remain in the bullpen.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Heads back to bullpen

    Curry made a relief appearance in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Angels, giving up two earned runs on three hits and one walk over one inning while failing to strike out a batter.

    Curry had started in nine of his previous 11 appearances, but it looks like he'll shift back into a bullpen role moving forward after Cleveland recently bolstered its rotation with the waiver-wire pickup of Lucas Giolito, who drew the start Saturday. The Guardians are expected to get Triston McKenzie (elbow) and Shane Bieber (elbow) back from the 60-day injured list later this month, so Curry may not have a path back to the rotation even if Cleveland loses another starting pitcher to an injury at some point in September.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Fans six in no-decision

    Curry allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits and a walk over 5.1 innings in Sunday's loss to the Rays. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision.

    Aside from Rene Pinto's two-run homer in the third inning, Curry turned in a sharp performance. It was a nice rebound for Curry after he was tagged with six runs in just two innings during his last start. He owns a 3.95 ERA this season but has registered a 4.85 ERA over 52 innings since his last win June 9. Curry's next start is currently lined up to be on the road against the Angels.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Coughs up six runs

    Curry (3-3) allowed six runs on six hits and a walk over two innings Monday, striking out two and taking a loss against the Twins.

    Curry gave up all six runs during a brutal second inning highlighted by Royce Lewis' grand slam. Over his last four appearances, Curry has been tagged with 15 runs in 15 innings, driving his season ERA to 4.10 through 79 frames. He's lost three consecutive decisions and hasn't earned a win since June 9. Curry is currently projected to face the Rays at home this weekend.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Logs short outing due to rain

    Curry pitched two innings against the Dodgers on Wednesday, allowing three runs on five hits and no walks while striking out one batter in a game that was suspended due to rain.

    Curry endured a rough first inning during which he gave up three runs on four hits. The right-hander bounced back with a one-hit, scoreless second frame but wasn't able to go any further since the game was suspended due to rain before a pitch was thrown in the third. Curry won't be available when the game is resumed Thursday.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Tosses quality start Friday

    Curry came away with a no-decision in the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Tigers, allowing one run on five hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out six.

    The right-hander delivered his first quality start of the season while establishing a new season high in strikeouts, but Curry was headed for his second loss until Cleveland took the lead in the eighth inning. Since getting stretched out, the 25-year-old has a 4.50 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 11:4 K:BB through 16 innings over his last three starts, working at least five frames each time. With Cal Quantrill (shoulder) expected to return next week, however, Curry's run in the rotation is likely coming to a close.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Tigers-Guardians postponed by rain

    Curry will not start Thursday against the Tigers after the game was postponed due to rain.

    There are storms passing through Cleveland, so Thursday's game has been moved into a traditional doubleheader Friday at Progressive Field. Curry is lined up to start the second half of the twin bill, with Gavin Williams handling the early tilt.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Struggles in Tampa Bay

    Curry was charged with five runs on six hits and two walks over five-plus innings Friday, taking a no-decision in a 9-8 loss to the Rays. He struck out one.

    Curry retired the side in order each of the first two innings but then labored in the third as the Rays sent eight men to the plate and scored three runs. He bounced back with a scoreless fourth and fifth, but a double ahead of an Isaac Paredes two-run homer in the sixth ended his night. In addition to just one strikeout, Curry managed only two whiffs among 70 pitches. He could get another start as the Guardians continue to patch together their rotation around numerous injuries, but fantasy managers can probably do better.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Pitches well in no-decision

    Curry didn't factor into the decision in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the White Sox after allowing two runs on four hits over five innings. He struck out four.

    Curry turned in an efficient effort, worked through five innings on just 65 pitches (45 strikes). He allowed a pair of runs in the opening inning before dealing four scoreless frames and exiting with a 3-2 lead before the White Sox rallied for three runs in the top of the ninth. A reliever for most of the season, Curry has now made four starts and appears likely to stick in the rotation while Cal Quantrill (shoulder), Triston McKenzie (elbow) and Shane Bieber (elbow) are all sidelined for the foreseeable future. Overall, Curry is 3-1 with an impressive 2.95 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 45:17 K:BB across 64 innings this season. His next start is expected to come in a tough road matchup with the Rays next weekend.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Staying in rotation

    Curry will start Sunday's game against the White Sox and remain in the Guardians' rotation going forward, Mandy Bell of reports.

    He will start getting stretched out to remain in the rotation indefinitely, but Curry may not be ready Sunday to go deep enough to qualify for the win. He has not logged more than three innings in any of his last 10 appearances and has a 2.86 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 17 strikeouts in 22 innings over that stretch.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Works in relief Tuesday

    Curry came on in relief of starter Gavin Williams in Tuesday's 2-0 loss to the Astros, covering 1.2 scoreless innings while striking out three and giving up two hits and no walks.

    Curry made three of his previous four appearances as a starter, though he never surpassed three innings in any of those outings. His usage in relief Tuesday likely suggests he won't be a candidate to start Saturday versus the White Sox, when the Guardians will need to add a new fifth member of the rotation to the mix. After building up to 7.1 innings in his latest rehab start last Sunday, Peyton Battenfield (shoulder) could be activated from the 60-day injured list to fill the open rotation spot. The door might not be closed on Curry starting this weekend, however, as Cleveland could require another replacement in the rotation for Sunday's series finale if Noah Syndergaard (lower leg) isn't ready to pitch.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Takes first loss

    Curry (3-1) took the loss Friday, allowing one run on two hits and three walks over three innings against the White Sox. He did not record a strikeout.

    Luis Robert touched him up for a homer in the first inning. As has been the case for Curry in every outing since April, he was capped at three innings, but he did throw a season-high 54 pitches in this start. He's pitched well with a 2.98 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 57.1 innings, but in this role Curry's fantasy utility is limited to AL-only formats.
