  • Guardians' Hunter Gaddis: Quickly ascending leverage ladder

    Gaddis walked one and struck out two in a scoreless and hitless inning to earn his fifth hold of the season Saturday versus the Athletics.

    Gaddis had struggled primarily as a starter over parts of the last two seasons, but he's thriving as a reliever so far. He's got a 15:3 K:BB while allowing just four hits and no runs over 10.2 innings to begin the campaign. Gaddis was expected to be more of a middle reliever initially, but he's looking more like a setup man after his hot start, which is especially impressive considering how strong the Guardians' bullpen has been. Gaddis has also been able to unlock more velocity in shorter outings -- per Statcast, his fastball is averaging 96.3 mph this year after sitting at 93.4 mph over the previous two years. He's also tightened his pitch arsenal, dropping his curveball and cutter while using his slider and changeup as his offspeed offerings.

  • Guardians' Hunter Gaddis: Shaping up as reliever

    Gaddis has allowed two runs on four hits, one walk and two hit batsmen while striking out seven over 5.2 innings across four Cactus League appearances.

    Gaddis hasn't started any of his outings this spring, which suggests he's not in serious contention for a rotation spot. He's started nine of his 13 major-league appearances over the last two years, but the results have been mediocre at best. Gaddis doesn't have great strikeout numbers in the majors and his velocity sits around 93.5 mph, so he may be best suited for a long-relief role if he makes the big-league roster out of camp.

  • Guardians' Hunter Gaddis: Optioned to Triple-A

    Gaddis was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Friday.

    Gaddis was recalled ahead of his start Thursday. He pitched three scoreless innings versus the Orioles, but he was taken out after taking a hit off of his leg. With Shane Bieber (elbow) returning from the 60-day injured list, the 25-year-old was optioned back down.

  • Guardians' Hunter Gaddis: Goes three innings in start

    Gaddis allowed a hit and two walks while striking out one over three scoreless innings in a no-decision versus the Orioles on Thursday.

    Gaddis ended up covering the most innings of any Cleveland pitcher in a bullpen day. He made just two appearances with Triple-A Columbus over the last three weeks, allowing two runs over 7.2 innings. In the majors, he has a pedestrian 4.50 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 24:14 K:BB across 42 innings over 11 appearances (seven starts). With Shane Bieber (elbow) and Triston McKenzie (elbow) returning and the Guardians having two off days next week, Gaddis will probably not be needed to start again in 2023.

  • Guardians' Hunter Gaddis: Recalled for start Thursday

    Gaddis was recalled from Triple-A Columbus ahead of his start Thursday versus the Orioles.

    Gaddis has struggled to a 6.14 ERA in 73.1 innings this season at the Triple-A level and owns an ugly 6.99 ERA and 28:15 K:BB in 46.1 career major-league frames. The 25-year-old right-hander is not a recommended fantasy streamer against Baltimore.

  • Guardians' Hunter Gaddis: Getting start Thursday

    Gaddis will be recalled from Triple-A Columbus to start for the Guardians on Thursday against the Orioles, Roch Kubatko of reports.

    Gaddis will be taking over the rotation spot vacated by Tanner Bibee (hip), who was placed on the 15-day injured list earlier this week. Over 10 appearances (six starts) with Cleveland this season, Gaddis has put up a 4.85 ERA over 10 appearances. Gaddis might receive just the one start, as the Guardians are poised to get Shane Bieber (elbow) and Triston McKenzie (elbow) back from the 60-day injured list in the coming days.

  • Guardians' Hunter Gaddis: Optioned to Triple-A

    Gaddis was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Friday, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Gaddis picked up a win in a three-inning relief outing in his last appearance but now finds himself back in the minors following a wave of waiver claims by the Guardians. He's posted a 4.85 ERA over 10 appearances (six starts) for Cleveland this season.

  • Guardians' Hunter Gaddis: Earns win after call-up

    Gaddis (2-1) was recalled from Triple-A Columbus earlier Tuesday and subsequently allowed a run on four hits and a walk while striking out two over three innings to earn the win over the Twins.

    Gaddis was called up to take Daniel Norris' spot on the 26-man roster after most recently having served as the 27th man during last Thursday's doubleheader. He's now at a 4.85 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 23:12 K:BB through 39 innings over 10 outings (six starts) in the majors this year. Gavin Williams (knee) exited Tuesday's start after one inning, and Gaddis would be among a handful of options to fill a vacancy in the rotation if Williams misses additional time, though Cal Quantrill (shoulder) is expected to be back from the injured list Friday.

  • Guardians' Hunter Gaddis: Returns to Triple-A

    The Guardians optioned Gaddis to Triple-A Columbus on Friday.

    Gaddis was sent back to the minors one day after being called up to serve as the 27th man for the Guardians' doubleheader with the Dodgers. The 25-year-old worked 4.2 innings out of the bullpen in Thursday's 9-3 loss, giving up two earned runs on seven hits and two walks while failing to record a strikeout.

  • Guardians' Hunter Gaddis: Brought up as 27th man

    The Guardians added Gaddis from Triple-A Columbus to serve as their 27th man Thursday, Mandy Bell of reports.

    Because Wednesday's game with the Dodgers ended up spilling into Thursday due to rain, the Guardians will be allowed to use Gaddis as an extra man in their bullpen. The 25-year-old righty has put up a 5.17 ERA and 1.21 WHIP through 31.1 frames in the majors this season, and he will likely return to Columbus immediately after Thursday's contest.

  • Guardians' Hunter Gaddis: Sent back to Triple-A

    The Guardians optioned Gaddis to Triple-A Columbus on Saturday.

    Gaddis was called up from Columbus and was designated as the Guardians' 27th man for Friday's doubleheader with the Tigers, but he didn't appear in either contest before being returned to the minors a day later. He went on to appear out of the bullpen for Columbus on Sunday, giving up one run over two innings in a 9-2 loss to Syracuse.

  • Guardians' Hunter Gaddis: Sent to minors

    The Guardians optioned Gaddis to Triple-A Columbus on Saturday, Mandy Bell of reports.

    Gaddis has been inconsistent in the majors this season -- he has three scoreless multi-inning appearances alongside four starts in which he allowed three runs or more. If he's able to right the ship in Triple-A, there's a chance he rejoins the big club later this season. For now, Michael Kelly will take Gaddis' spot after being selected from Columbus on Saturday.

  • Guardians' Hunter Gaddis: Three strikeouts in no-decision

    Gaddis did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks over 4.2 innings against the Cardinals. He struck out three.

    Gaddis allowed three solo home runs to the Cardinals but was let off the hook thanks to a walk-off, two-run double by Jose Ramirez. The right-hander sports a 5.72 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 19:9 K:BB across six starts (28.1 innings), but he's likely transitioning to a relief role or heading back to Triple-A Columbus soon, as Aaron Civale (oblique) and Triston McKenzie (shoulder) are both nearing a return to MLB.

  • Guardians' Hunter Gaddis: Draws another start

    Gaddis is scheduled to start Sunday's game against the Cardinals at Progressive Field.

    Though Aaron Civale (oblique) is available on normal rest Sunday and built up to 69 pitches in his latest rehab start at Triple-A Columbus, the Guardians seem to be leaning toward having him make another start in the minors prior to bringing him back from the 15-day injured list. As a result, Gaddis will get the opportunity to build on his strong showing in his return to the big leagues Monday, when he tossed six scoreless innings in a win over the White Sox. With Civale closing in on a return and Triston McKenzie (shoulder) not much further behind, Gaddis still appears likely to head to the bullpen or get optioned to Triple-A after Sunday's start.

  • Guardians' Hunter Gaddis: Six scoreless innings in win

    Gaddis (1-1) earned the win Monday, tossing six scoreless innings in which he allowed two hits and one walk during a 3-0 win over the White Sox. He struck out four.

    After a month at Triple-A Columbus, Gaddis was called up to the big-league club ahead of Monday's contest and made his sixth start of the season. It was the second time he completed at least six scoreless frames, lowering his ERA from 6.86 to 5.26. Gaddis hasn't been a major strikeout pitcher yet, but he's been able to take care of business more often than not in 2023, as the majority of the damage done to his ERA came during a tumultuous outing versus the Yankees on April 11. Gaddis figures to get at least one more turn in the rotation after his stellar outing against Chicago, but he's not guaranteed a spot in the rotation when Triston McKenzie (shoulder) and Aaron Civale (oblique) finish their rehab assignments.

  • Guardians' Hunter Gaddis: Officially called up

    Gaddis was called up from Triple-A Columbus and will start Monday against the White Sox, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

    As expected, Gaddis will join the Guardians ahead of their three-game series with the White Sox on Monday, drawing the start in the series opener. The 25-year-old has struggled to a 6.86 ERA and 1.42 WHIP over 19.2 innings in the big leagues this season, but most of the damage came April 11 against the Yankees, when he surrendered eight runs over three frames. Gaddis will look to kick off his second stint in the big leagues a little better Monday when he takes on a disappointing Chicago team.
