Pedro Grifol Snaps White Sox' Decades-Long Managerial Hiring Trend

At the onset of the White Sox' managerial search process, GM Rick Hahn said, "having that history with the White Sox is not necessarily a characteristic that we're looking for this time." Of course, that excluded bench coach Miguel Cairo, who earned a look for the job after his performance as acting manager during Tony La Russa's health-related absence. The Sox also interviewed former manager Ozzie Guillén. Source

Guardians offense finds a new rock bottom

+

If you’ve been holding out on calling the Guardians "in a funk" you can probably stop now. Just call it what it is — they’re bad right now. One game, one big inning, could turn that around in an instant. But until it does, they are a rough team to watch at the plate every night. This 3-0 loss to the Orioles is their fifth in their last seven games, and it’s the third time they have been shut out in their last four contests. Tonight was especially grim because they managed just two hits off of rookie starter Kyle Bradish and ... nothing else. That was it. A few walks were sprinkled about, but the Guardians offense was mowed down in 1-2-3 fashion four times and did not look competitive at any point. The hardest hit ball from the Guardians came from Amed Rosario — a 100.4 mph groundout. Maybe there are a few games that I’ve intentionally blanked out of my memory, but I can’t remember the last time the 2022 Guardians felt so defeated for the entire game.

Cleveland Guardians place Zach Plesac, Aaron Civale on injured list

+

Trying to hang on to their slim lead in the American League Central, the Cleveland Guardians lost two starting pitchers to injury on Friday. Both Zach Plesac (broken hand) and Aaron Civale (forearm inflammation) were placed on the 15-day injured list before Cleveland, which leads Minnesota by just one game, opened a three-game series against the Seattle Mariners. It's hardly ideal for a young team in the middle of a pennant race. Plesac was supposed to start Friday's opener, but the right-hander was scratched about four hours before the scheduled first pitch. Rookie Cody Morris will make his major league debut against the Mariners.

Cleveland Guardians manager Terry Francona admitted that "physically, it's getting hard" to remain an active participant in the dugout, and he is expected to reach a resolution with the organization about his future soon. The 63-year-old Francona missed time in 2020 and 2021 with multiple physical issues that required multiple surgeries. "I want to enjoy what I'm doing. It's getting harder to do that, just because physically it's harder. I just want to be careful. And at the same time, I want to be fair to the team," Francona told Ken Rosenthal. Guardians president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti indicated the team will have Francona as long as he wants to manage, though they will not pressure him into returning.

A Salvaged Offseason: a Retooled Fans 2022

+

For a period it seemed we wouldn't make it, yet Major League Baseball broke the association and will play baseball in 2022. For Cleveland it was a critical offseason exhibiting a rebrand more than hundred years in the creating which gave an open door to Paul Dolan to do his absolute best and recharge a passionless fanbase. Obviously the offseason, until the last day, played out uniquely in contrast to generally anticipated. The shiny new Guardians didn't reshape the program, abstained from auctioning off their couple of staying expensive veteran resources, and decided to a great extent sit tight. As such the program stays a general obfuscated wreck entering the 2022 season. Offseason Review (This segment is purposefully left clear) The Joy of Jose Ramirez After essentially achieving nothing the whole offseason the Guardians stunned us all when they reported a couple of expansions. The first for Emmanuel Clase fits the John Hart shape of securing youthful players before they arrive at assertion and logical delivers profits throughout the span of the following five years. All the more significantly: Jose Ramriez consented to a long term expansion past the 2023 season. I thought the chances of an expansion were practically nothing, particularly after their quiet offseason where the main move which got an external player was marking Luke Maile to a "Significant League contract" (which you possibly determine while it's stunning you marked the player to everything except a small time agreement). I was persuaded Paul Dolan wouldn't spend the cash on a club well disposed bargain: I was off-base. The Jose Ramirez expansion is a particularly shocking and blissful development I have not quit grinning since I saw the news the previous morning. I have proactively composed numerous considerations on Jose, yet to add somewhat more: Jose is reasonable the best player to wear a Cleveland uniform since basically Jim Thome. While it very well might be somewhat exaggerated to recommend this marking changes the establishment, it isn't poetic overstatement to say this marking changes the viewpoint for the group past 2023. For quite a long time fans just trusted that headliners will leave the establishment either in terms of professional career or in free organization and on second thought of contemplating whether Jose Ramirez will play in Toronto following quite a while of tales we can basically partake in Jose's brilliant play in Cleveland for quite a long time into the future.
