2022 Cleveland Guardians in Review

2022 in Review: Bryan Shaw

His Guardians (and baseball) career might be over. It wasn’t all bad. And certainly not the worst.

2022 in Review: James Karinchak

Only James Karinchak could carry a 4.85 BB/9 and still somehow be a dominant reliever

2022 in Review: Enyel De Los Santos

The right-hander was the surprise of the Cleveland bullpen

2022 in Review: Zach Plesac

All of 2022 stunk for Plesac. There’s no other way to look at it.

2022 in Review: Luke Maile

We’re reaching that point of our Year in Review posts

2022 in Review: Owen Miller

His hot start earned him way more leeway than it should have

2022 in Review: Austin Hedges

There is certainly no questioning his mastery of PitchCom

2022 in Review: Will Benson

He has the tools to succeed, but it’s still unclear if he can use them all

2022 in Review: Cal Quantrill

There is no better place for Cal Quantrill to flourish than right here, right now

2022 in Review: Myles Straw

A gold glove and a brown bat

2022 in Review: Sam Hentges

The Cleveland Pitching Factory is alive and well

2022 in Review: Gabriel Arias

Gabriel Arias’ rookie season probably didn’t go as he hoped, but time is on his side

2022 in Review: Aaron Civale

What a lazy title. Get ready for the intro ‘graph!

Guardians MVP #1: José Ramírez

He’s the GOAT, he’s all in on Cleveland, and he’s our Guardians MVP for 2022

Guardians MVP #2: Andrés Giménez

Number two in our countdown, number one in my heart

Guardians MVP #3: Shane Bieber

Not even diminished fastball velocity could foil the Guardians' ace

Guardians MVP #4: Emmanuel Clase

The Guardians’ closer of the present and future is unconventional but elite

Guardians MVP #5: Steven Kwan

Kwan’s 2022 was amazing, but the future is even more exciting

Guardians MVP #6: Triston McKenzie

The 25-year-old beanpole stood tall this season in both stature and performance

Guardians MVP #7: Amed Rosario

It doesn’t have the same ring to it as "Maria", but you get the idea

Guardians MVP #8: Oscar Gonzalez

SpongeBob Williams, perhaps?

Guardians MVP #9: Trevor Stephan

Thank your local Yankee fan for gifting Trevor Stephan to the Guards

Guardians MVP #10: Josh Naylor

Naylor rocking his little son while rounding the bases didn’t ruin the ALDS, and the Guardians probably wouldn’t even have been there without him.
