Tyler Naquin delivered a walk-off inside-the-park home run in Friday’s 3-2 victory over the Blue Jays.
Naquin didn’t start the game — as he entered as a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning — but boy, did he find an exciting way to finish it. After Jose Ramirez tied things up against Roberto Osuna with a solo homer, Naquin hit a long drive to right field which deflected off the top of the right field fence and rolled into no-man’s land in right-center field. Melvin Upton, Jr. did his best to come up with the ball and make a throw, but Naquin was able to scamper around the bases without much of a challenge. The rookie outfielder has now played hero in back-to-back nights, as he had a walk-off sacrifice fly against the White Sox on Thursday. This finish was a tad more exciting. Aug 19 - 9:57 PM

Tyler Naquin went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Sunday's loss to the Orioles.

Naquin notched an RBI double in the fourth inning. The two-bagger was his 11th of the season. Overall, he is slashing a fine .321/.380/.626 with 12 homers, 30 RBI and five triples over 187 at-bats. That all of this comes in his first major league season is impressive.

Tyler Naquin went 3-for-4 with two homers, a double, and six RBI in the Indians' 11-4 rout of the Royals on Wednesday afternoon in Kansas City.

Naquin hit a solo shot off Ian Kennedy in the third inning, a two-run double off Kennedy in the fourth inning, and then he capped off the Indians' seven-run fifth inning with a three-run bomb against reliever Peter Moylan. The 25-year-old outfielder is making a strong case for 2016 American League Rookie of the Year honors, now with a .324/.387/.636 batting line, 12 home runs, and 29 RBI in 63 games.
Jul 20 - 5:39 PM

Tyler Naquin went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's loss to the Yankees.

Naquin's two-out, two-run homer off Masahiro Tanaka capped off a six-run fifth inning by the Indians -- after the Yankees posted a six-spot of their own in the top of the inning. Symmetry. The 25-year-old outfielder can spend the All-Star break admiring his shiny .314/.374/.591 triple-slash. In 159 at-bats, he has done a little bit of everything, collecting seven doubles, five triples and nine home runs.
Jul 10 - 5:13 PM

Tyler Naquin went 2-for-4 with a home run and a stolen base in a loss to the Yankees on Thursday.

The homer was Naquin's eighth of the season, a solo shot off Ivan Nova, and the steal was his third. He's coming off a strong month of June in which he hit .338/.434/.785 with six homers, as now all eight of his home runs have come since June 3. The 25-year-old has been a revelation for the Indians in the first half, batting .325/.386/.596 overall.
Jul 7 - 11:09 PM

Tyler Naquin smacked a solo homer and drove in two runs in Tuesday's blowout victory over the Tigers.

Naquin plated a run in the second inning on a groundout and took Buck Farmer deep in the sixth with a solo blast. The rookie center fielder has been everything the Indians could've asked for and then some this season, sporting a .313/.373/.576 batting line with seven home runs. Carlos Santana also had a solo dinger as the Tribe exploded for 12 runs.
Jul 5 - 11:28 PM

Tyler Naquin went 3-for-3 with a triple, a home run and four RBI as the Indians pounded the White Sox 13-2 on Saturday.

Naquin was a thorn in the White Sox' side all afternoon, contributing an RBI single in the first inning, roping a two-run triple in the fourth and topping it off with a solo homer in the sixth. The triple was his third and the homer his fifth of the season. The 25-year-old was on the wrong end of a roster crunch in mid-May that got him sent down, but he's batting .320/.375/.553 in 41 games with the big club and should continue to get some run going forward in what has become a depleted outfield.
Jun 19 - 12:08 AM

Tyler Naquin went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer in Thursday's win over the Mariners.

Naquin snapped a 2-2 tie when he tagged a Joaquin Benoit offering for a two-run dinger with one out in the eighth inning. It was his fourth home run of the season and pushed his RBI total to 16. The 25-year-old outfielder entered the month of June with zero career homers in the majors. He has now hit four over his last seven games. In 83 at-bats, Naquin is slashing .325/.371/.554.
Jun 10 - 1:57 AM

Indians rookie Tyler Naquin went deep for the second day in a row Saturday against the Royals.

Naquin hit his first career home run yesterday and was so excited he decided to do it again today. 80 plate appearances into his career the 25-year old is hitting .333/.368/.500. He has a 30% strikeout rate and a .468 BABIP so let's not get carried away just yet as growing pains are likely on the way. With Michael Brantley on the DL and Marlon Byrd suspended, Naquin may see everyday playing time until he cools down.
Jun 5 - 12:11 AM

Tyler Naquin blasted the first home run of his big league career on Friday as the Indians topped the Royals 6-1 to capture the first game of their weekend set.

Naquin's impressive opposite-field blast came off of Royals starter Edinson Volquez in the seventh inning. He also drew a walk in the contest, finishing the night 1-for-2 to raise his season slash to .319/.347/.449. As long as he continues to hit, he should continue to find himself in the lineup on a fairly regular basis, making him an interesting commodity in AL-only formats.
Jun 3 - 10:04 PM

Indians recalled OF Tyler Naquin from Triple-A Columbus.

Cleveland has become even more desperate for outfield depth in the wake of the Marlon Byrd suspension. The club's current active outfielders are Rajai Davis, Lonnie Chisenhall, Jose Ramirez, Michael Martinez, and now Naquin. Not a very inspiring group.
Jun 1 - 2:53 PM

Indians optioned OF Tyler Naquin to Triple-A Columbus.

Naquin has posted a respectable .317/.338/.413 batting line in 65 plate appearances this season at the major league level, but the Indians needed to clear a spot for Mike Clevinger, their spot starter Wednesday versus the Reds. Naquin will be back up at some point.
May 18 - 2:25 PM

Indians recalled OF Tyler Naquin from Triple-A Columbus.

He'll likely only be up for a few days while Lonnie Chisenhall is on the bereavement list. Naquin has hit .315/.327/.426 this season with the big club but was sent down last week so that he could play every day.
May 13 - 2:36 PM

Indians optioned OF Tyler Naquin to Triple-A Columbus.

Naquin saw his playing time squeezed out with the return of Michael Brantley, so he'll head down to Triple-A where he can play on a nightly basis. The 25-year-old slashed .315/.327/.426 with two RBI and a 19/1 K/BB ratio in 54 at-bats with the Tribe.
May 7 - 11:37 AM

Tyler Naquin is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Mariners.

He'll take a seat against southpaw Wade Miley. Rajai Davis will start in center field and bat leadoff while Marlon Byrd will play left and Collin Cowgill will start in right.
