News and Notes: Teoscar Hernandez will not be a Guardian for Opening Day 2024

News and Notes for Monday, January 8th, 2024

Teoscar Hernandez signed a one-year deal with the Dodgers. On the bright side, I told someone here that I would eat my hat if Teoscar signed a 4-year deal, so I won’t have to eat a hat. But, it would have been nice to have Teoscar in Cleveland.

However, he is a poor defender and the offensive profile he offers tends not to age very well. I’m not particularly upset about it, but I’m sure some are, and I understand it.

I’m a little more upset about Sean Manaea to the Mets.

I know there’s no way the Guardians are doing one year and $14 million, let alone the two years and $28 million, but how great would it be to have a pitcher like Manaea in your rotation and have the ability to have Logan Allen as your sixth starter waiting in Columbus if need be? Ah well, I’ll settle for Ben Lively and Jaime Barria, I guess.

Franmil Reyes is going to Japan, which makes sense. It was a fun LIDOM season where he was cranking homers every day for a while.

More Guardians’ players were confirmed for Guards Fest on Saturday, January 20th. Does it mean anything that Rule Five selection Deyvison De Los Santos is there? I don’t know. I just hope everyone has a great time.
