  • Guardians' Gabriel Arias: Garners fifth straight start

    Arias will start in right field and bat sixth in Wednesday's game against the White Sox.

    He'll stick in the lineup for a fifth consecutive game at a third different position, though right field probably represents his clearest path to playing time now that the Guardians are back to full strength following Jose Ramirez's recent return from bereavement leave. Arias is maintaining a modest .685 OPS for the season, but that's still well ahead of Will Brennan (.558), the Guardians' primary option in right field. Though he's largely served as a short-side platoon mate for Brennan since Oscar Gonzalez was optioned to the minors earlier this month, Arias will draw the start over Brennan on Wednesday with right-hander Michael Kopech on the hill for Chicago.

  • Guardians' Gabriel Arias: Nearly heroic in extra-inning loss

    Arias hit a two-run home run in his only at-bat in Friday's 10-9 extra-inning loss to the Mets.

    Arias entered the game as a pinch runner for Josh Bell in the seventh inning, and he stayed in as the first baseman. In the 10th, Arias put the Guardians ahead with his two-run homer, only for the Mets to rally for three runs off Emmanuel Clase in the bottom of the frame. Arias has homered in each of the last two games, and he's up to three long balls in 70 plate appearances. The versatile infielder has added four RBI, five runs scored and three doubles while slashing .203/.271/.391 this season.

  • Guardians' Gabriel Arias: Cranks homer

    Arias went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Thursday's victory over the White Sox.

    Arias turned a fastball into a 425-foot homer to get Cleveland on the board. He got the start at first base Thursday but has played all four infield positions and right field in 2023. He's slashing .190/.261/.333 with two homers and no additional RBI in 69 plate appearances, making it unlikely that he moves out of his current utility role.

  • Guardians' Gabriel Arias: Gets start in right field

    Arias is starting in right field and batting sixth for the Guardians on Friday against the Angels.

    The 23-year-old has been seeing regular work in right as Will Brennan's platoon partner versus lefties since Oscar Gonzalez was sent down. Arias is slashing just .204/.278/.306 this season, which unfortunately means he fits right in with the rest of the scuffling Cleveland offense.

  • Guardians' Gabriel Arias: Returns to utility role

    Arias is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Rockies.

    Arias recently wrapped up a seven-game stretch in which he made six starts in the infield, but his path to steady playing time has likely closed now that Amed Rosario is healthy again after recently overcoming a back injury. Josh Naylor, Josh Bell, Andres Gimenez, Rosario and Jose Ramirez will continue to make up the Guardians' four starters in the infield and at designated hitter more often than not, forcing Arias to settle for a limited role as a utility man.

  • Guardians' Gabriel Arias: Picks up fourth straight start

    Arias will start at shortstop and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Tigers, Mandy Bell of reports.

    Arias will be picking up his fourth consecutive start Wednesday, with three coming at shortstop while Amed Rosario has been on the mend from a back injury. Though prior reports have suggested Rosario is due to return to the lineup Friday against the Marlins, Daniel Alvarez-Montes of relayed Wednesday that the Guardians planned to call up top middle-infield prospect Brayan Rocchio from Triple-A Columbus, which likely implies more concern about Rosario's health than anticipated. If Rosario winds up on the injured list, Rocchio would most likely inherit the everyday gig at shortstop, resulting in Arias fading back into a utility role.

  • Guardians' Gabriel Arias: Getting start at first base

    Arias is will start at first base and bat second in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Tigers.

    It's the second game in a row that Arias has been in the No. 2 spot for the Guardians after he filled in at shortstop for Amed Rosario (back) on Sunday. Arias is just 1-for-12 versus lefties this season, but that one hit was a home run. He'll go up against southpaw Matthew Boyd in this contest.

  • Guardians' Gabriel Arias: Homers in loss

    Arias went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Athletics.

    Arias tied the game at 2-2 with a solo blast off JP Sears. It's the first homer of the season for the 23-year-old, and the second of his young MLB career in 21 career games. Arias is expected to get regular playing time against left-handers and should garner multi-position eligibility as the season unfolds.

  • Guardians' Gabriel Arias: Gets start at first base

    Arias is hitting sixth and playing first base Tuesday against the Athletics.

    Arias is expected to serve in a utility role this season that will see him play all over the diamond, and he's getting a look at first base in the early part of the campaign. Josh Naylor is the designated hitter for Tuesday's contest, while Josh Bell will get a day off.

  • Guardians' Gabriel Arias: Gets first start of season

    Arias is hitting sixth and playing third base against the Mariners on Sunday.

    Arias will get his first start of the year with left-hander Marco Gonzales on the bump for Seattle. Jose Ramirez will get a rest on defense as the designated hitter, and Josh Naylor will take a seat for the series finale. Arias is expected to serve as a utility player who will get starts all over the infield during the 2023 campaign.

  • Guardians' Gabriel Arias: Available for Monday's contest

    Arias (hand) is listed as an available reserve option for Monday's Cactus League game against the Diamondbacks, Mandy Bell of reports.

    Arias hasn't played in any games since Friday after suffering a right hand contusion, but he looks like he could get the chance to see action in the Guardians' penultimate contest of the spring. Even if the Guardians stay away from him Monday, Arias should be able to play in Tuesday's spring finale versus the Diamondbacks, putting him on track to head into Opening Day at full strength. He's expected to serve as a utility man for Cleveland and likely won't be in line for steady at-bats so long as all of the Guardians' core infielders are healthy.

  • Guardians' Gabriel Arias: Exits with bruise on right hand

    Guardians manager Terry Francona announced that Arias left Friday's game against the Cubs with a contusion on his right hand, Mandy Bell of MLB.comreports.

    Arias was hit in the same hand that he broke in 2022, but he underwent a scan and everything has come back OK according to Francona. The utility player is not scheduled to undergo X-rays just yet, but the team might be waiting for any swelling to go down. For now, Arias should be considered day-to-day.

  • Guardians' Gabriel Arias: Leaves Friday after HBP

    Arias left Friday's Cactus League game after being hit near his hand by a pitch, Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Arias had a broken right hand that sidelined him in 2022, and he is expected to serve as a utility player for the Guardians in 2023. He immediately dropped to the ground after being hit, and looked to be in significant pain. If he ends up landing on the IL to begin the season, Tyler Freeman might be recalled to take Arias' spot on Cleveland's bench.

  • Guardians' Gabriel Arias: Likely to fill utility role

    Arias has hit .350 (14-for-40) with three doubles, three RBI, 10 runs scored and four stolen bases across 15 Cactus League games.

    Tyler Freeman was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday, paving the way for Arias to serve as the Guardians' main utility man off the bench. Arias' bat has certainly earned him the chance to start the season at the major-league level, and his contact-and-speed approach fits well with the team. The 23-year-old slashed .191/.321/.319 with three extra-base hits and a stolen base in a 16-game sample last season.

  • Guardians' Gabriel Arias: Could see time in outfield

    Arias will get some playing time in the outfield during spring training, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    Arias is a natural shortstop, but Amed Rosario is likely to start there barring injury or an extended slump. Arias saw some time around the infield last season, and adding at least one corner outfield position could give him another path to playing time if the Guardians run into injury trouble. He hit just .191 and struck out 28.1 percent of the time over 57 plate appearances in the majors last season, so it's still possible he begins the year with Triple-A Columbus.

  • Guardians' Gabriel Arias: Starts again Sunday

    Arias will start at first base and bat seventh Sunday in Game 4 of the Guardians' American League Division Series matchup with the Yankees.

    After going 2-for-4 with a double a run scored in Saturday's 6-5 win in Game 3, Arias will stick in the starting nine against Yankees right-hander Gerrit Cole as the Guardians take aim at a series-clinching victory. Arias appears to have overtaken Will Brennan for a spot in Cleveland's regular lineup versus right-handed pitching.
