Brandon Guyer (wrist) is expected to resume baseball activities Monday in Indians camp.

Guyer aggravated his surgically-repaired left wrist during one of the Indians' first full-squad workouts in Arizona, but an MRI taken Wednesday showed no new damage. It sounds like the veteran outfielder will be fine for Opening Day, though he still has some rehab hurdles to clear.

Brandon Guyer underwent an MRI on his surgically-repaired left wrist on Wednesday.

Guyer needed a procedure to repair the extensor tendon in his wrist last October and then tweaked it during one of the Indians' first spring training workouts on Tuesday. The team should know more about his short-term and long-term outlook by Thursday. Guyer projects to work in a right-field platoon this year in Cleveland, but it seems his status for Opening Day may now be in question.

Brandon Guyer is still waiting to start hitting after wrist surgery in October, but he is able to throw and play defense.

Guyer will be examined next week to determine if he can begin hitting. If he's ready for Opening Day, he'll probably start in right field against lefties, forming a platoon with Lonnie Chisenhall.

Brandon Guyer will undergo surgery Wednesday to repair the extensor tendon in his left wrist.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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