  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Snags first win

    Curry (1-0) allowed two hits over three scoreless innings to earn the win Sunday over the Cardinals.

    Curry has made six relief appearances in May, four of which have exceeded one inning. He kept the game close Sunday before Jose Ramirez walked it off with a two-run double. A starter in the minors, Curry has excelled in a long-relief role this season with a 2.22 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 19:6 K:BB over 28.1 innings. With an upcoming logjam in the Guardians' rotation with injury returns, it's possible Curry could be sent back to Triple-A Columbus despite his recent success in the majors.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Bypassed for spot start

    Curry covered four innings out of the bullpen in Tuesday's 11-2 loss to the Yankees, striking out three while giving up three earned runs on four hits and one walk.

    With Aaron Civale (oblique) landing on the 15-day injured list Monday, Curry looked to be a candidate to fill the opening in the rotation, but the right-hander's usage in long relief Tuesday took him out of the equation. Instead, Peyton Battenfield will get the first crack at replacing Civale in Wednesday's series finale versus the Yankees, while Curry and/or Triple-A Columbus starter Konnor Pilkington are likely next in line to join the rotation if Battenfield falters or if another Cleveland starter should join Civale on the IL.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Covers five innings

    Curry allowed two runs over three hits while striking out three over five innings in Monday's 12-11 extra-inning win over the Athletics. He did not factor in the decision.

    Zach Plesac was chased from the game after giving up six runs in one-plus innings. Curry stepped in for a long-relief assignment and limited the damage to a two-run home run by Ramon Laureano in the fifth inning. This was Curry's first appearance of the season, and while he's currently occupying a relief role, it's good to see him staying stretched out in case he's needed to step into the rotation. He threw 35 of 55 pitches for strikes and dialed up five swinging strikes. Barring injuries to any of the Guardians' starters, Curry's best chance of getting into the rotation could be if Hunter Gaddis continues to struggle.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Recalled from Triple-A

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: In line for bullpen spot

    Curry is expected to make the Guardians' Opening Day bullpen, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    He'll take the spot of Hunter Gaddis, who is moving into the rotation to replace Triston McKenzie (shoulder). Curry is a starter by trade but will be able to provide some length in Cleveland's bullpen.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Optioned out to Triple-A

    Curry was optioned to Triple-A Columbus by the Guardians on Thursday, Mandy Bell of reports.

    Curry held a 5.14 ERA through 14 innings this spring in the Cactus League after posting a 5.79 ERA over his first 9.1 major-league frames in 2022. The 24-year-old right-hander will serve as organizational relief depth for Cleveland leading into the 2023 campaign.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Handed first loss

    Curry (0-1) took the loss during Saturday's 4-0 defeat at the hands of the Mariners, allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits and five walks in 4.1 innings. He failed to record a strikeout.

    Making his second start of the campaign, Curry permitted at least three baserunners in both the first and second innings but limited the damage to one run in each frame. His fortune faded in the fifth when he walked the bases loaded with one out and the bullpen allowed two of the inherited runners to score, putting the 24-year-old in line for the loss. Curry has posted a decent 4.00 ERA across two levels in 21 minor-league outings (19 starts), though he hasn't fared as well in the majors with six earned runs across 9.1 innings in two turns.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Sent to minors

    Curry was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Sunday, Mandy Bell of reports.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Getting start Saturday

    Curry, who was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Friday, will start Saturday's game against the Mariners.

    He'll be one of two rookie pitchers starting for the Guardians on consecutive days, as Cody Morris made his MLB debut in Friday's 6-1 loss to Seattle after Cleveland placed rotation members Zach Plesac (hand) and Aaron Civale (forearm) on the 15-day injured list prior to the contest. Morris covered only two innings while serving as more of an opener, but Curry should be capable of giving the Guardians more length after he worked at least six frames in seven of his starts in the minors this season. Curry previously made his MLB debut as a spot starter back on Aug. 15, when he took a no-decision against the Tigers after giving up three runs on eight hits and one walk over five innings.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Recalled, could start Saturday

    Curry was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Friday and could start Saturday against the Mariners, Mandy Bell of reports.

    The Guardians have yet to announce a Saturday starter, but the 24-year-old righty is up as a corresponding move after Saturday's originally scheduled starter Aaron Civale was placed on the injured list due to forearm inflammation, and Curry and Civale were on the same pitching schedule. Curry made his big-league debut Aug. 15 against Detroit and gave up three earned runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out three in five innings. He has a 4.21 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 44:22 K:BB in 51.1 innings over his last 10 starts in the minors.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Back in Triple-A

    Curry was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Aug. 16.

    Curry made his major-league debut Aug. 15, allowing three runs in five innings versus the Tigers, but it was only a spot start. He pitched for Columbus on Tuesday, getting rocked for eight runs (six earned) on seven hits and three walks with two strikeouts in 3.2 innings in his first appearance back with the affiliate.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Yields three runs in debut

    Curry allowed three runs on eight hits and a walk over five innings during a loss to the Tigers in Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.

    Curry was promoted from Triple-A Columbus for a spot start and held his own in his MLB debut. He gave up just one run through four innings before he was tagged with two more in the fifth. The 24-year-old righty will likely head back to Columbus, where he's posted a 3.09 ERA and 1.09 WHIP through 32 innings.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Starting Game 2 of doubleheader

    Curry was called up from Triple-A Columbus on Monday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Curry is set to make his major-league debut Monday, facing the Tigers in Game 2 of a doubleheader. The 24-year-old has produced a 3.09 ERA and 1.09 WHIP with 33 strikeouts over 32 innings in six starts with Columbus this season. Curry will likely return to Triple-A following Monday's outing.

  • Guardians' Xzavion Curry: Strong outing Wednesday

    Curry went five innings for Double-A Akron against Richmond on Wednesday, striking out eight while allowing a single run on two hits and a walk.

    This was his longest and best outing of what's been a somewhat uneven season so far -- Curry has allowed one or no runs in three of his five starts, but he gave up a combined 10 runs in 7.2 innings across his other two starts. Despite the inconsistency, Curry is carrying an impressive 31:8 K:BB across 21.2 innings, and his 3.90 FIP and 1.18 WHIP indicate that there's some bad luck in his 4.98 ERA. He will need to get better at limiting homers, though -- that was a bit of an issue last year (1.2 HR/9), and he's already given up four this year (1.7 HR/9).
