Brandon Guyer slugged a two-run homer in Friday’s win over the White Sox.

The 31-year-old is a useful piece for Terry Francona to have around, but he’s unlikely to play enough to warrant attention in most fantasy leagues.

Guyer will make $2 million in 2017 and $2.75 million in 2018 while the 2019 option is worth $3 million and carries a $250,000 buyout. The deal buys out his final two years of arbitration and the option could cover his first free agent year. Guyer, who turns 31 later this month, played well after being picked up by the Rays last season and batted .266/.372/.423 with nine homers and 32 RBI over 101 games on the year. This included a league-leading 31 hit-by-pitches. Guyer owns an .861 OPS against southpaws in his career and should continue to provide value in a part-time role.

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.
