Cleveland Guardians option Mustard to High-A after struggling this season
It’s been a sad day for all Mustard fans, as they will no longer be seeing his luscious, fabulous, beautiful presence at Progressive Field.
Earlier this week, the Cleveland Guardians’ front office decided to make a massive move for the future of the organization.
They optioned Mustard to High-A Lake County. The club did not make a corresponding move, but we may see one in the coming days. Mustard, typically one of Cleveland’s best hot-dog racers, has struggled at a historic rate this season.
Mustard has not won a single Sugardale Hot Dog Race at Progressive Field out of the 50 so far this year. After recent races, he was seen pouting, throwing a temper tantrum, crying on the field, and bringing the feeling of failure to all Mustard fans.
The Guardians’ High-A team in Lake County is expected to focus solely on Mustard in hopes to fix his mental and physical capacity so that he is ready for the majors once more. According to the Guardians’ front office, he reported to the Captains Monday.
Here are the 2022 Sugardale Hot Dog Race results at Progressive Field this season:
It’s safe to say that Mustard will have a lot of work to do before he returns to Progressive Field. With the season drawing to a close, only time will tell whether or not he has what it takes to turn his 2022 campaign around.
