Stud: Myles Straw

Is Myles Straw back? It certainly seems like it. After a disaspointing 2022 campaign, Straw appears to be performing at a level that Cleveland's front office was expecting when they signed him to a contract extension last year.

Straw's .267/.353/.300 slash line is just a few ticks under what he was able to accomplish in 2021 after landing in Cleveland via trade (.285/.362/.377). Even if this is where Straw settles in for the season it will still be a productive campaign. Straw getting on base and then stealing another is exactly what the Guardians offense needs and he has been able to do that over his first 27 games. Straw currently ranks fourth in the American League with eight stolen bases.
