Brandon Guyer went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a pair of runs scored as the Indians trampled the Red Sox in Game 2 of the ALDS in Cleveland on Friday.

Guyer got the scoring started with a run-scoring single in the second inning, then came around to score on the three-run homer by teammate Lonnie Chisenhall. He also singled and scored the club's final run on Rajai Davis' sacrifice fly in the sixth inning. He's a platoon player who will see most of his action against left-handed pitching, but Guyer certainly delivered when called upon in a big spot on Friday.

Indians acquired OF Brandon Guyer from the Rays for OF Nathan Lukes and RHP Jhonleider Salinas.

Guyer owns a .283/.384/.464 batting line in 472 career plate appearances against left-handed pitching, as well as experience at all three outfield positions. He's a solid addition for the first-place Indians. Guyer will be arbitration-eligible for the second time this winter.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Rays are trading outfielder Brandon Guyer.

No word yet on where he's headed, but Guyer could be a useful piece for most contenders. The 30-year-old owns an .848 OPS against lefties in his career and is capable of playing all three outfield spots.

Brandon Guyer (hamstring) returned from the disabled list by going 2-for-4 with a homer and an RBI double in Wednesday’s win over the Red Sox.

Guyer took former teammate David Price deep for a solo shot in the second inning before plating another run with a double in the third. The 30-year-old is now batting .277 with seven homers and an .868 OPS in 41 games this season. He still does most of his damage against southpaws, but he’s capable of providing some value in deeper mixed leagues.

Rays activated OF Brandon Guyer from the 15-day disabled list.

Given the extent of the injuries the Rays have suffered in the outfield, Guyer should see all of the playing time that he can handle. He has been sidelined since June 4 with a hamstring strain.

Brandon Guyer (hamstring) could be activated from the disabled list on Wednesday.

Guyer is 0-for-8 over two rehab games with High-A Charlotte. He played left field Monday for the first time since his hamstring injury. The plan calls for him to be evaluated Tuesday to see if he's ready to rejoin the Rays or needs another rehab game.
Tue, Jun 28, 2016 09:59:00 AM

Brandon Guyer (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Charlotte on Saturday.

Guyer will serve as the DH on Saturday. He was placed on the disabled list three weeks ago with a strained hamstring. The Rays' outfield is pretty banged up right now with injuries to Steven Souza (hip), Mikie Mahtook (hand) and Kevin Kiermaier (hand), so it will be a welcome sight when Guyer returns sometime next week.

Brandon Guyer (hamstring) could begin baseball activities on Friday.

Guyer has been sidelined for a little over two weeks with a left hamstring strain, but he has increased his running in recent days and could take some swings against rehabbing right-handers Alex Cobb and Chase Whitley later this week. He appears on track to return in the early part of July.

Rays placed OF Brandon Guyer on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 4, with a left hamstring stain.

And now we know why he hasn't been in the lineup the last two days. Guyer figures to be out until late June, at the very least. Nick Franklin has assumed his spot on the Rays' roster.

Brandon Guyer is not in the Rays' lineup Sunday.

It's Guyer's second straight day on the bench, although there doesn't appear to be an injury he's dealing with. The Rays are using Mikie Mahtook in center field, Corey Dickerson in left and Steve Pearce in the designated hitter spot.

Brandon Guyer went 3-for-5 with a solo homer and three runs scored in Monday's loss to the Marlins.

Guyer's blast in the second inning off of Wei-Yin Chen tied the game at the time in a contest that ended up being back-and-forth all night. Once known as a lefty masher, Guyer is playing against lefties and righties now and has settled in as the Rays' leadoff hitter since Logan Forsythe (shoulder) went down. He's batting .327/.410/.564 on the season.

Brandon Guyer had himself a game in Sunday's 7-6 loss to the A's, rocking a pair of home runs and finishing with five RBI.

Guyer tortured A's starter Sonny Gray in the early going, cracking a solo home run in the first inning and a three-run tater in the second. Those accounted for four of his five RBI. The other came more modestly, via a fourth-inning sacrifice fly. For the season, the 30-year-old outfielder is hitting .338/.448/.577 with four homers and 11 RBI over 71 at-bats. Sunday's big performance was nice, but there is nothing in Guyer's history that would suggest that he could be in for a fantasy-relevant season.

Brandon Guyer went 2-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored Saturday against the Athletics.

Guyer had his fifth double of the year in the game, but it was his two-run single in the eighth that did the damage. Guyer has hits in six of his last eight games, including four multi-hit games in that span. It all adds up to a .328/.451/.493 line in 22 games.
