  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Sent to Triple-A

    Gonzalez was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Saturday.

    Gonzalez hit .296/.327/.461 with 11 homers in .382 trips to the plate last season, making him a somewhat interesting sleeper over the winter. His follow-up act has been a big disappointment thus far, as he'll lose his roster spot after hitting .192/.213/.288 in 25 games. Tyler Freeman was recalled to take Gonzalez's place on the bench.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Not in lineup

    Gonzalez is absent from the Guardians' lineup Friday in Boston.

    Gonzalez started four straight games against lefties but has now been benched in two of his team's last three contests with righties on the mound, as he continues to find consistent playing time hard to come by. Will Brennan will start in right field Friday.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Back on bench versus righty

    Gonzalez is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rockies.

    Gonzalez had started in each of the Guardians' last four games and went 3-for-13 at the dish, but it bears mentioning the opposition brought left-handers to the hill for each of those contests. With right-hander Ryan Feltner on the hill for Colorado on Tuesday, the righty-hitting Gonzalez will cede right field to the lefty-hitting Will Brennan. Gonzalez still looks to be stuck in a short-side platoon role, which could make consistent playing time difficult to come by.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Swats first homer of year

    Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a 4-3 loss to the Tigers in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader.

    He took Matthew Boyd deep in the fourth inning of the matinee, giving the Guardians a 3-1 lead, but it was the last offense the team would produce all day -- including the nightcap, which they lost 1-0. It was Gonzalez's first long ball and first RBI of the season, and after going 1-for-3 in the second game, he's batting .156 (7-for-45) through 15 contests. The 25-year-old will need to start picking up the pace if he wants to climb out of the short side of a platoon in right field with Will Brennan.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: On bench again versus righty

    Gonzalez is absent from the lineup for Monday's game against the Yankees.

    Gonzalez has still yet to make a start this season versus a right-hander not named Logan Gilbert; he's been in the lineup twice against the Mariners righty, who has reverse splits. The good news is the Guardians have already faced five lefties, so Gonzalez has still played quite a bit. The bad news is Gonzalez is sitting on a .387 OPS in the early going, and Will Brennan is looking like the preferred option in right field against most right-handers.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Making another start

    Gonzalez is starting in right field and batting sixth versus the Mariners in the Guardians' home opener.

    It didn't seem like a great sign when Gonzalez was on the bench in favor of Will Brennan on Opening Day. However, Gonzalez has started six of seven games since then, including against a righty in Logan Gilbert on Friday. Gonzalez is off to just a 4-for-22 start this season but showed plenty of potential last year.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: At cleanup spot Tuesday

    Gonzalez is batting cleanup for the Guardians on Tuesday night against the Athletics.

    Gonzalez hit fifth and sixth when he was in Cleveland's lineup over the weekend, and now he'll jump to the fourth spot in the order Tuesday with the A's starting left-hander JP Sears. Will Brennan is sitting.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Not in lineup against Oakland

    Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Guardians.

    Gonzalez will be on the bench against right-hander James Kaprielian with Will Brennan getting the start in right and hitting seventh. This appears to be a platoon situation between the two outfielders to begin the year, and that obviously limits Gonzalez' value considerably, even if he performs well against southpaws.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Starting in right field Friday

    Gonzalez is starting in right field and batting sixth for the Guardians on Friday night at Seattle.

    Will Brennan got the start in right in Thursday's season opener against the Mariners and right-hander Luis Castillo, and now it will be Gonzalez's turn Friday versus left-hander Robbie Ray. Gonzalez had a mini-breakout in 2022, but he appears to be situated in a platoon at the moment.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Slow start in spring games

    Gonzalez has gone 2-for-11 over four Cactus League games.

    Both of Gonzalez's hits are singles, and he's added an RBI and two strikeouts. The second-year outfielder enters 2023 as the projected starting right fielder for the Guardians, but he will need to maintain the strong hitting he displayed as a rookie last year. Gonzalez slashed .296/.327/.461 with 11 home runs and 27 doubles over 91 contests in 2022. If he struggles early in the season, Will Brennan, Gabriel Arias, Tyler Freeman or Roman Quinn could potentially challenge Gonzalez for playing time.

  • Guardians' Oscar Gonzalez: Produces three hits in win

    Gonzalez went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Sunday's 7-5 win over the Royals.

    Gonzalez has fended off a challenge for playing time from Will Brennan with a hot bat lately. The former has gone 27-for-85 (.318) over his last 20 games to maintain a starting role, mainly in right field. Gonzalez's three-hit effort Sunday lifted his batting average to .295 with a .790 OPS, 11 home runs, 43 RBI, 36 runs scored, one stolen base and 26 doubles through 88 contests this season.
