  • Josh Naylor Likely To Skip World Baseball Classic

    Cleveland Guardians first baseman Josh Naylor (ankle) will likely skip the 2023 World Baseball Classic after aggravating a right ankle injury late in the postseason. Naylor initially injured the ankle in 2021 and began the 2022 season late. Despite playing through his ankle injury last year, he hit .256 with a .771 OPS, 20 home runs, 28 doubles and 79 RBI for the Guardians. This offseason, he was able to have more of a normal routine, including some upper-body work he had to neglect last winter. The 25-year-old left-handed hitter still struggled against left-handed pitching in 2022, but his dominance against righties should at least keep him in the lineup more often than not. Naylor also doesn't strike out too much, so if he improves against lefties, there will be even more to like.

  • Guardians, Josh Naylor Avoid Arbitration

    The Cleveland Guardians and first baseman/outfielder Josh Naylor avoided salary arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.35 million deal on Friday. Naylor had by far his best season in the big leagues for Cleveland last year, posting career-highs in home runs (20), RBI (79), runs scored (47) and stolen bases (six) in 122 games while slashing .256/.319/.452 with a .771 OPS. The 25-year-old left-handed slugger from Canada has hit just .209 in his career against left-handed pitchers in four seasons, though, so he loses a lot of mixed league value for fantasy managers as a platoon player for the Guardians.
