  • Josh Naylor Continues Hot Offensive Start Tuesday

    Headshot for Josh Naylor

    Cleveland Guardians first baseman Josh Naylor continued to produce at the plate in Tuesday's 7-5 loss to the White Sox. Naylor went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run and two walks. The 26-year-old is now slashing .314/.395/.543with two HR, six runs scored, and seven RBI in 43 plate appearances. He may not be the most exciting first-base name for fantasy, but Naylor is on track to provide consistent production once again in 2024.

  • Josh Naylor Goes 1-for-3 On Wednesday

    Headshot for Josh Naylor

    Cleveland Guardians first baseman Josh Naylor went 1-for-3 on Wednesday in an 8-6 Cactus League loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. He's now 3-for-7 in three spring games, with all three hits being singles. Although he's been caught stealing once as well, it's good to see he's still running in 2024, as his 10 stolen bases last season were likely an added surprise bonus for anyone invested in him since he's not very fleet-of-foot (15th percentile sprint speed). The former first-round draft pick has superb contact skills, with a Contact% of 82.4% and a low K% of 13.7%. Combined with his power and sneaky speed, he offers managers a safe-floor option with upside for those who miss out on some of the higher-priced first base options.
