Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Back in big leagues
Freeman was recalled by the Guardians on Saturday.
Freeman spent a few days in the big leagues in April, going 2-for-7 with a double and a walk. Combined with his slightly longer cameo last season, he's now hitting .250/.319/.298 in 94 MLB plate appearances. His Triple-A numbers suggest promise, as he's hit .329/.468/.482 in 22 games this season, but he doesn't seem to have a path to anything more than a utility role. Oscar Gonzalez was optioned in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Heads back to Triple-A
Cleveland optioned Freeman to Triple-A Columbus on Sunday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.
The move opens up a spot on the 26-man roster for lefty Logan Allen, who was called up from Triple-A ahead of his scheduled start Sunday versus the Marlins. Freeman went 2-for-7 at the dish in his brief cup of coffee with the Guardians and will return to regular playing time as he heads back to the International League.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Returns to lineup Saturday
Freeman (shoulder) is hitting eighth and playing third base against the Marlins on Saturday for the second game of a doubleheader.
Freeman has missed the past few games with a shoulder injury, but he'll return for the second game of a twin bill. Jose Ramirez will be the designated hitter for the contest with Gabriel Arias handling the shortstop duties and Amed Rosario out of the lineup.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Hurts shoulder Tuesday
Freeman didn't appear in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Tigers due to an apparent left shoulder injury, Joe Noga of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Though neither Freeman nor Amed Rosario (back) have been placed on the injured list, their poor health explains why the Guardians felt compelled to call up top middle-infield prospect Brayan Rocchio from Triple-A Columbus ahead of Wednesday's game. After being recalled ahead of Tuesday's doubleheader to help replace an ailing Rosario at shortstop, Freeman went 2-for-4 at the dish in the Guardians' 4-3 loss in Game 1 but appeared to hurt his shoulder while defending a stolen-base attempt in the fourth inning. After a team off day Thursday, the Guardians will presumably reassess both Rosario and Freeman before determining whether either infielder requires a stint on the IL.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Gets call-up from Triple-A
The Guardians recalled Freeman from Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
Freeman was off to a blazing start at Columbus with a 1.100 OPS, two home runs and five stolen bases across 64 plate appearances. The infielder might only be around for a few days while reliever Enyel De Los Santos (personal) is on paternity leave. With Amed Rosario (back) tending to a minor injury and sitting out the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Tigers, Freeman will start at shortstop and bat eighth.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Optioned to Triple-A
Freeman was optioned to Triple-A Columbus by the Guardians on Tuesday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
Freeman hasn't hit much this spring, going just 5-for-34 at the plate. It appears that the Guardians will carry Gabriel Arias and/or Richie Palacios as utility options on the Opening Day roster.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Will get outfield look
Freeman will play some outfield during spring training to gain positional versatility, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.
When the Guardians are fully healthy, there doesn't appear to be an everyday spot available for Freeman. The 23-year-old will look to add more positions to his ledger, making him an option when injuries occur, though he still needs to hit well enough to grab a bench spot out of camp.... See More ...

Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Sent down Saturday
Freeman was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Saturday.
Freeman had lost out on playing time recently, as he was in the lineup for just two of the last 10 games. The 23-year-old will be cast off the active roster as part of a move after Bo Naylor's contract was selected Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Sits against righty again
Freeman is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the White Sox.
After starting in the final three games of the Guardians' series with the Twins that ended Monday, Freeman finds himself on the bench for the second game in a row. Both of his absences from the lineup have come against right-handed pitchers (Dylan Cease and Lance Lynn), and the righty-hitting Freeman may find himself in a de facto platoon moving forward with lefty-hitting outfielder Will Brennan, who was called up from Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday and is starting in right field....

Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Takes seat Tuesday
Freeman isn't in the lineup for Tuesday's matchup against the White Sox, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Freeman will get a day off after his 1-for-5 effort Monday against the Twins. Josh Naylor slots in as the designated hitter. Owen Miller starts at first base, batting seventh.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Picking up playing time
Freeman will start at third base and bat seventh in Monday's game against the Twins, Joe Noga of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
He'll pick up his third consecutive start in a row, all of which have come against right-handed pitchers. Through his first 72 big-league plate appearances, Freeman is slashing .254/.333/.302, but the Guardians may view that modest level of production as an upgrade over what the slumping Owen Miller is currently providing. Miller, who is on the bench for the fourth time in six games, owns a .579 OPS in the second half.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Still not starting
Freeman isn't in the lineup Saturday against the Twins.
Freeman has hit safely in each of his last six games but will head to the bench for a third consecutive matchup. Amed Rosario is starting at shortstop and batting second. Freeman's time as a near-everyday player for Cleveland may have come to an end.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Sits out Friday
Freeman is not in the lineup Friday against the Twins.
The 23-year-old infielder made four consecutive starts between Saturday and Tuesday in which he went 5-for-17 with an RBI. Freeman will now sit for the second straight game. Amed Rosario will fill in at shortstop Friday and Richie Palacios will assume the designated hitter role, batting seventh.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Sits after four straight starts
Freeman is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Royals, Joe Noga of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
After going 5-for-17 with two runs and an RBI while starting in each of the past four games, Freeman will take a seat for the series finale. Though Owen Miller will check into the lineup in the rookie's stead Wednesday, Freeman still appears to have the edge on the final spot in Cleveland's regular starting nine.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Registers first steal
Freeman went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's 7-2 win over the Blue Jays.
Freeman has seen inconsistent playing time since his promotion Aug. 3, appearing in just six games. He's batting .250 with a stolen base and two runs scored through 20 plate appearances, and he's yet to see a hit go for extra bases. With Andres Gimenez, Amed Rosario and Jose Ramirez around, Freeman has no clear path to playing time in the infield, so an uptick in usage shouldn't be expected.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Tyler Freeman: On bench again
Freeman is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Astros.
Following his promotion from Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday, Freeman went 2-for-8 with two walks and a run while drawing three straight starts at three different positions in the infield. Despite the respectable start to his big-league career, Freeman will be on the bench Sunday for the second contest in a row and looks like he'll have to settle for a utility role while he's up with the big club....

Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Promotion official
The Guardians recalled Freeman from Triple-A Columbus ahead of Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks. He'll start at third base and bat seventh in his MLB debut.
Cleveland optioned Ernie Clement to Columbus in a corresponding move, and Freeman is expected to take over Clement's role as the Guardians' top utility infielder. In Wednesday's series finale, Jose Ramirez is getting a day out of the field and handling the designated-hitter role, and he could find himself in a non-defensive role more frequently in the wake of Franmil Reyes being optioned to Triple-A on Tuesday. If that ends up being the case, Freeman could have a path to play regularly at the hot corner, but the 23-year-old will have to perform well to ensure he sticks in the everyday lineup. Over 343 plate appearances at Triple-A this season, Freeman turned in a .279/.371/.364 slash line with six home runs and six stolen bases.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Tyler Freeman: Headed to majors
The Guardians plan to call up Freeman from Triple-A Columbus prior to Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.
Cleveland isn't be known to be dealing with any injuries to its infielders, so Freeman's promotion may just be a matter of the organization rewarding him for his hot hitting at Columbus of late. Though he owns a .735 OPS for the season at Triple-A, Freeman recorded hits in all but one of his last 15 starts while slashing .400/.478/.500 with two home runs, three stolen bases and a 6:5 BB:K over that stretch. Freeman, who has picked up starts at second base, third base and shortstop at Triple-A this season, could unseat Ernie Clement as Cleveland's top utility infielder.... See More ... See Less
