N&N: Guardos DFA Quantrill, Kelly to make room for Espino, Smith

Morning N&N for November 15, 2023

MLB: Cleveland Guardians at Los Angeles Angels Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

The Guardians got their roster to 40 players in surprising fashion yesterday. The additions of Daniel Espino and Cade Smith weren’t surprising; one of the subtractions was. Cal Quantrill was designated for assignment. This move was such a surprise that everyone is assuming this is just a paperwork move in advance of Cal being traded. We shall see.

Michael Kelly was also let go, which most of us assumed. Kelly was solid in limited 2023 innings.
