Indians placed OF Tyler Naquin on the 10-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.
Rather than try to rush him back, the club has opted to play it safe and give him ample time to recover from his strained hamstring. He shouldn't require much longer than the minimum stint on the disabled list. May 12 - 1:33 PM

Date:

Tyler Naquin was removed from Friday's game due to tightness in his left hamstring.

At the moment, it doesn't seem like it should lead to a trip to the disabled list, but he may get an extra day off just to be safe. Consider him day-to-day.
May 11 - 9:24 PM

Tyler Naquin was removed from Friday's game against the Royals with a possible injury.

Naquin appeared to tweak something while legging out a double in the fourth inning. While he remained in the game to run the bases for himself, he was replaced in the field by Brandon Guyer to start the fifth. The Indians should provide an update on his status shortly.
May 11 - 9:06 PM

Tyler Naquin drove in three of the Indians’ six runs Wednesday in a win over Milwaukee.

Naquin staked Cleveland to a 4-0 lead in the fourth by blasting a three-run homer off Brewers starter Junior Guerra. He also chipped in with a sixth-inning single off Jacob Barnes. Wednesday extended his hitting streak to six games. The 27-year-old has shown well in limited action this year, slashing .329/.364/.438 with two long balls, nine RBI and eight runs scored in 73 at-bats for the Tribe.
May 9 - 5:25 PM

Indians recalled OF Tyler Naquin from Triple-A Columbus.

Naquin helped cover for Michael Brantley in left field for the first week and now should see time in right with Lonnie Chisenhall (calf) going down. Those in AL-only leagues might consider picking him up.
Apr 8 - 10:09 AM

Indians optioned OF Tyler Naquin to Triple-A Columbus.

Michael Brantley (ankle) will be activated from the disabled list in a corresponding move. Naquin went 2-for-12 with a home run in his brief stay with the big club.
Apr 6 - 8:18 AM

Tyler Naquin went 3-for-4 with two RBI and three runs scored in a lopsided win over the Mariners on Sunday.

Naquin led off the game with a double that led to a run, and he added RBI singles in the second and third innings for good measure. He's now got 11 hits in 39 spring at-bats, with six RBI and nine runs scored. It's crowded in that Indians outfield but Naquin is stating his case for a bench job, and he's firmly in the mix as the end of spring draws near.
Mar 19 - 12:39 AM

Tyler Naquin clubbed a solo home run off of Matt Shoemaker as the Indians defeated the Angels in Wednesday's Cactus League tilt.

Naquin's solo shot got the Indians on the board in the third inning and proved to be more than enough support for Corey Kluber and company. He finished the afternoon 1-for-2 and is now hitting .250 with a pair of homers and three RBI in his quest to secure a reserve outfielder role this spring.
Mar 14 - 8:55 PM

Tyler Naquin went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a double in Saturday's Cactus League win over the Diamondbacks.

A fine game for Naquin, who put his stamp on the exhibition via a two-run home run in the third inning. After hitting a sweet .296/.372/.514 in 116 games with the Indians during the 2016 season, the outfielder saw his playing time plummet in 2017, when he appeared in just 19 games. He failed to impress in that small space. He'll be fighting for a bench role this spring, but may very well end up at Triple-A Columbus to open the 2018 season.
Feb 24 - 8:03 PM

Tyler Naquin got the start in center for the Indians on Wednesday and had a double, a walk and a sac fly against the White Sox.

The Indians called up Greg Allen before Naquin and played Allen over Naquin on Tuesday after Naquin was called up earlier in the day. Today, though, Naquin did get the assignment and did well with it. He deserves more time in the outfield to see if he can help in the postseason.

Indians recalled OF Tyler Naquin from Triple-A Columbus.

Naquin will operate as outfield depth for the Tribe over the final stretch of the regular season. He's appeared in just nine games this season at the major league level, slashing .200/.231/.240.
Tue, Sep 5, 2017 04:15:00 PM

Indians optioned OF Tyler Naquin to Triple-A Columbus.

Naquin got a couple starts over the weekend after being recalled, but he's being sent back down with the Indians needing a fresh bullpen arm. He's hit .309/.372/.496 at Columbus this season.

Indians recalled OF Tyler Naquin from Triple-A Columbus.

Naquin was optioned to the minors shortly after Opening Day and has hit .309/.372/.496 with five homers and two steals for Columbus. He'll see some playing time in right field while Lonnie Chisenhall (calf) is out.
Fri, Jul 14, 2017 08:13:00 AM

Tyler Naquin has joined the Indians in Oakland.

He's expected to replace Lonnie Chisenhall, who is headed to the disabled list with a strained calf. Naquin has spent the last three months in the minors, hitting .309 over 123 at-bats for Triple-A Columbus. He's already had success at the major league level, hitting .296 for the Tribe last year while finishing third in AL Rookie of the Year voting. Naquin will share time in right field with Abraham Almonte and Brandon Guyer.

Indians optioned OF Tyler Naquin to Triple-A Columbus.

Naquin finished third in the 2016 American League Rookie of the Year balloting with a .296/.372/.514 batting line in 116 games, but he was off to a poor start this season and the Indians are facing a roster crunch with Lonnie Chisenhall returning Thursday from a spring shoulder injury. Austin Jackson and Abraham Almonte will presumably share time in center field for Cleveland.
