Indians manager Terry Francona said Tuesday that Brandon Guyer (wrist) is unlikely to return for the postseason.

Guyer aggravated a wrist injury last month and there's just not enough time for him to get back to game speed. The Indians will carry Jay Bruce, Jason Kipnis, Greg Allen, Austin Jackson, Lonnie Chisenhall, and Michael Brantley in their outfield for the ALDS.
Oct 3 - 2:51 PM

Brandon Guyer will be shut down for the next 5-7 days after aggravating his wrist injury during a pinch-hit appearance earlier in the week.

Guyer won't travel with the club during their upcoming road trip. The Indians are hopeful that he'll be able to return before the end of the regular season.
Sep 16 - 1:45 PM

Brandon Guyer (neck) returned to the Indians' lineup, going 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Tigers.

Guyer had left Wednesday's game against the Yankees with a strained neck. The injury shouldn't be an issue moving forward.
Sep 2 - 8:15 AM

Brandon Guyer left Wednesday's game against the Yankees due to a neck strain.

Guyer was pulled in the fourth inning, with Austin Jackson moving over from center to left in his place and Bradley Zimmer coming in off the bench to play center. His exit was precautionary in nature and Guyer should be considered day-to-day moving forward.
Aug 30 - 6:41 PM

Brandon Guyer finished 1-for-5 with a triple and an RBI in Tuesday's 2-1 loss in San Francisco.

When Guyer accounts for the team's only extra-base hit and RBI it is likely a long night for the Indians. He also misplayed a line drive which led to an unearned run against Mike Clevinger. His fantasy appeal is limited to deeper AL-only play.
Jul 19 - 4:18 AM

Indians activated OF Brandon Guyer from the 10-day disabled list.

Guyer, out since mid-May with a left wrist sprain, went 4-for-20 (.267) with a homer and four hit-by-pitches over six rehab games with Triple-A Columbus. The 31-year-old was batting just .182/.237/.291 over 60 plate appearances prior to hitting the DL.
Jun 26 - 3:13 PM

Brandon Guyer (wrist) went 1-for-2 with a walk and a hit-by-pitch Tuesday in his third rehab game with Triple-A Columbus.

It was the second HBP in three rehab games for a guy who has led the American League in getting hit by pitches over the last two seasons. "He’s getting closer," joked Indians manager Terry Francona. Guyer, out since May 14 with a left wrist sprain, should be cleared to return to the active major league roster over the weekend.
Jun 21 - 9:31 AM

Brandon Guyer (wrist) started his minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Columbus on Friday, finishing 1-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts.

It's uncertain how long Guyer will need with the Clippers, but he and Abraham Almonte (biceps) appear to be rounding the corner in their rehab and could be back to help the big club soon.
Jun 17 - 3:01 AM

Brandon Guyer is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a left wrist sprain.

Guyer's wrist was bothering him for a little while before he aggravated the injury on a swing on Friday. He'll be out through mid-June at the earliest. Guyer was batting just .182/.237/.291 with one homer and five RBI in 21 games.
May 15 - 3:37 PM

Indians placed OF Brandon Guyer on the 10-day disabled list with a left wrist sprain.

It's unclear how Guyer suffered the injury, but an MRI revealed the sprain. How long he'll be sidelined isn't known at this point. He was off to a rough start this season with a .182/.237/.291 line in 55 at-bats.
May 14 - 10:17 AM

Brandon Guyer went 2-for-4 and drove in three runs against the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

He came to the plate with the bases loaded in the third inning and promptly emptied them with a double. He was thrown out trying to stretch it into a triple. The 31-year-old part-time outfielder has a .189 batting average with one homer and five RBI in 57 plate appearances.
May 10 - 11:29 PM

Brandon Guyer will start in right field Tuesday against the Astros.

No surprise with left-hander Dallas Keuchel on the hill for Houston. Guyer will hit seventh and makes for a useful option in daily formats.
Apr 25 - 2:35 PM

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

Guyer has two specialities, specifically getting hit by pitches and mashing lefties. He did the latter on Friday, taking Jose Quintana deep in the fourth inning to collect his first home run and RBI of the season. 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.
Apr 22 - 12:16 AM

Brandon Guyer was scratched from the Indians' starting lineup on Saturday due to illness.

Guyer was in the club's original lineup but is battling the flu and will sit this one out. Expect him to return to game action in a couple of days.
