It is exciting that we will soon hear the words “Play ball!” Or the crack of a bat! Baseball is finally back! Cleveland has rebranded their franchise, as they will now be known as the Cleveland Guardians. They must pick up a solid player either via trade or free agency to draw more fans to the games. That has not been the case thus far. They have some young talent which is helpful for the team down the road. Time to dive into what the Guardians have done so far.

Last November, the Guardians shipped pitcher J.C. Meija to the Milwaukee Brewers for a player to be named later. We now know that the player to be named later is David Fry, a 26- year old catcher and utility player. Fry has played three years in the minors. Fry has played over 291 games with a batting average of .269 41 home runs and 173 RBIs. The Guardians have yet to determine what position he will play, but the good thing for Fry is that he can play multiple positions. A recent move that the Guardians made was signing catcher Luke Maile, who has played six seasons in the big leagues. Maile signed a Major League contract and will earn 900,000 dollars. Maile last played for the Pirates and then the Brewers before suffering an injury to his finger that required surgery in 2020. Cleveland has a bare amount of depth at the catching position. Maile will most likely battle Sandy Leon for the starting catching job. I understand, Cleveland fans; no exciting signings thus far. Hopefully, this team will bring some energy this season.
