Player Outlook
In another era, Will Brennan might have been viewed differently given that he has put up high batting averages consistently throughout his time in professional baseball. However, modern fans and front offices can see that it's a rather empty batting average. Brennan managed five home runs and 13 steals in 455 big-league plate appearances last season at the age of 25. Worst of all is the fact that Brennan has been averse to drawing walks, managing just a 3.6 BB% and .308 OBP through 500 plate appearances in the majors to date. He's a quality defender in right field and projects to start there for the Guardians on Opening Day, but there will be pressure on him to provide more offensively in his second full season.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: Idle Tuesday

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: Resting versus lefty

    Brennan isn't in the Guardians' lineup Saturday versus the Angels. Left-hander Reid Detmers will toe the slab for Los Angeles on Saturday, meaning the lefty-hitting Brennan will begin the game in the dugout. Ramon Laureano will fill the void in right field and bat fifth.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: Racks up three more hits

    Brennan went 3-for-4 in Thursday's 8-2 loss to the Astros. Brennan's playing time has steadied lately with the Guardians facing five straight right-handed pitchers. The outfielder's results are still all over the place -- Brennan has five multi-hit efforts and three home runs over his last nine games, but he's without a hit in the other four contests during that span. His trio of singles Thursday lifted his batting average from .228 to .253, and he's added four homers, 11 RBI, 13 runs scored and two stolen bases through 90 plate appearances on the year. Brennan remains in a strong-side platoon role with the majority of his playing time coming in right field.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: Two hits in win

    Brennan went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in Wednesday's win over the Astros. Brennan got ahead in the count 2-0 to lead off the fifth inning before crushing a hanging four-seamer from Justin Verlander into the stands in right field for his fourth home run of the season. The outfielder would later add a single to give him his sixth multi-hit game of the campaign, with four of those performances coming over his last eight contests. He also has six extra-base hits over that eight-game stretch.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: Cranks third homer

    Brennan went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Thursday's 6-4 win over the Red Sox. Brennan opened the scoring with a solo shot off Chase Anderson in the second inning, his third homer of the year. Brennan's started to swing the bat well recently -- he's now 6-for-13 with five extra-base hits (including two homers) in his last four games. The left-hitting outfielder has gotten the majority of starts in right field this season with Ramon Laureano occupying the short side of the platoon. Brennan is now slashing .250/.310/.453 through 71 plate appearances with 11 runs scored, 10 RBI and two stolen bases.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: Takes seat for series finale

    Brennan is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Red Sox. The Red Sox are opening the game with a left-hander (Brennan Bernardino), so the lefty-hitting Brennan will bow out of the starting nine in the series finale. Jose Ramirez will get a day off out of the field and serve as the Guardians' designated hitter in place of Brennan on Thursday.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: Out of lineup again Monday

    Brennan is not in the lineup for Monday's game versus the Red Sox. It's the third straight game that Brennan will begin on the bench, and two of them have been against right-handers. Brennan is 0-for-11 over his last five contests and looks to be slipping behind Estevan Florial in the Guardians outfield/designated hitter pecking order.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: Drives in two, swipes bag

    Brennan went 2-for-5 with two RBI and a stolen base in Wednesday's win over the Mariners. Brennan drove home Jose Ramirez with an infield single in the first to put the Guardians up 3-0 and later swiped a bag in the inning, giving him two steals on the season. The outfielder then added another RBI single in the fourth as the Guardians continued their offensive surge. Brennan has now logged two hits in back-to-back games, raising his average to .286 in the process.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: Nabs steal Saturday

    Brennan went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Saturday's 12-3 win over the Athletics. Brennan came into the game as a pinch hitter for Ramon Laureano once the Athletics took starter JP Sears out. It's an emerging platoon in right field for the Guardians that would see Brennan on the strong side, though he's started just one of three games so far since the Athletics have started a southpaw twice. Brennan is 2-for-7 with one RBI, a walk, a strikeout and a steal through two contests and should offer modest speed upside when he gets in the lineup.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: Back to bench Saturday

    Brennan is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Athletics. Brennan went 1-for-4 with one RBI on Friday as he got the start in right field against Oakland right-hander Ross Stripling. With the Athletics starting left-hander JP Sears on Saturday, Ramon Laureano will be back in right field while batting third in the Guardians' lineup.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: Not starting versus lefty

    Brennan is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against Oakland. With left-hander Alex Wood starting on the hill for the A's, the lefty-hitting Brennan will retreat to the dugout Thursday. Ramon Laureano will start in right field as a result, allowing David Fry to serve as Cleveland's DH and bat fifth.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: On Opening Day roster

    Brennan made the Guardians' Opening Day roster, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Brennan hit .266 with a .655 OPS and 13 stolen bases over 138 games last season while serving as the Guardians' primary right fielder. That spot is not guaranteed to him this season, as Estevan Florial and Ramon Laureano will also compete for playing time there. Brennan hit .243 in spring training, and as a left-handed batter, he could be set for a strong-side platoon role once the games start to count.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: Sitting against lefty

    Brennan is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Reds. Steven Kwan, Myles Straw and Ramon Laureano will start across the outfield for the Guardians as they take on left-hander Andrew Abbott. The left-handed-hitting Brennan has struggled to a .495 OPS in 86 plate appearances versus southpaws this year.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: Sitting out against lefty

    Brennan isn't in the Guardians' lineup Saturday against the Orioles. Fellow left-hander John Means will start on the bump Saturday for Baltimore, so Brennan will take a seat for the beginning of the game. His absence will allow Ramon Laureano to start in right field while batting fourth.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: Notches steal Friday

    Brennan went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk, one RBI, one stolen base and two runs scored in Friday's 9-8 win over the Orioles. Brennan has done little in the way of counting stats in September with two steals, six RBI and eight runs scored over 19 games. All four of his extra-base hits this month have been doubles, but he is batting .308 in that span. The outfielder is up to 13 thefts with a .266/.300/.359 slash line, five home runs, 41 RBI and 40 runs scored through 133 contests overall.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: On bench versus lefty

    Brennan is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Angels. Brennan will sit against Halos lefty Kenny Rosenberg, which is his third time out of the lineup in Cleveland's past four games. Steven Kwan, Myles Straw and Kole Calhoun will start from left to right in the outfield Sunday.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: Three-hit effort in loss

    Brennan went 3-for-5 with a double, one RBI and one run scored in Monday's 20-6 loss to the Twins. Brennan has come to life at the plate over his last 11 games, going 14-for-34 (.412) in that span, albeit with just one extra-base hit. The outfielder's lost a grip on an everyday role with Ramon Laureano muscling his way into the lineup, though Myles Straw is most likely to be at risk of losing additional playing time going forward. Brennan is at a .266/.296/.363 slash line with five home runs, 11 stolen bases, 36 RBI, 34 runs scored and 21 doubles over 118 games.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: Heads to bench Sunday

    Brennan is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays. Brennan went 6-for-17 with a walk, two RBI, a stolen base and a run scored while starting each of the past five games, but he'll take a seat for the series finale with the Guardians welcoming Josh Naylor (oblique) back from the injured list Sunday and deploying him at designated hitter. With Ramon Laureano having seemingly moved into a full-time role in the outfield, the addition of Naylor could result in one of Brennan or Myles Straw losing out on playing time alongside Laureano and Steven Kwan. Brennan appears to have the edge over Straw for now, with the latter having sat out two of the Guardians' last five matchups with right-handed starting pitchers.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: Picks up 11th steal

    Brennan went 1-for-3 with a walk, one RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Twins. Brennan was bothered by a right knee strain over the weekend, but his activity on the basepaths suggests that's no longer a concern. The outfielder is hitting just .224 (13-for-58) in August with three doubles, four steals and no home runs. For the season, he's at a modest .256/.288/.355 slash line with five homers, 11 steals, 35 RBI and 32 runs scored through 113 contests.

  • Guardians' Will Brennan: Out again Sunday

    Brennan (knee) remains out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays. He'll be on the bench for a third straight game while he battles a right knee strain, though the lefty-hitting Brennan may not have started Sunday even if 100 percent healthy due to the Blue Jays bringing southpaw Yusei Kikuchi to the hill. Ramon Laureano will step in for Brennan as Cleveland's starting right fielder.
