CLEVELAND (AP) — There seems to be cloud hanging over the Cleveland Guardians, and it keeps opening up on them.
For the sixth time this season, the Guardians were postponed at home by bad weather as the threat of thunderstorms and an ominous forecast led to their game Saturday against the Detroit Tigers being called more than three hours before the first pitch.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Cleveland Guardians first baseman Josh Naylor was added to the team's COVID-19 injured list on Friday, marking the first player to be sidelined by the team's recent outbreak.
Cleveland's game at the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday was postponed because of COVID-19 concerns, and the team was off Thursday.
The Cleveland Guardians reported no new COVID-19 cases Thursday, a day after an outbreak inside their clubhouse caused a postponement in Chicago and sent manager Terry Francona and five coaches home from a road trip.
CLEVELAND (AP) — José Ramírez's new contract is official. His value to the Guardians hasn't been in dispute for a long time.
The All-Star third baseman — and one of baseball's best all-around players — signed his seven-year $141 million contract on Thursday, a day before Cleveland plays its first home opener since changing its name last year.
CLEVELAND (AP) — The scripted name atop the giant scoreboard at Progressive Field is new. So are the team's caps and jerseys, signaling a fresh start for Cleveland baseball in 2022.
GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Cleveland Guardians ace Shane Bieber avoided salary arbitration when he agreed to a $6 million, one-year contract on Tuesday.
Bieber's deal completed a day in which Cleveland signed all seven of its arbitration-eligible players: Bieber, shortstop Amed Rosario ($4.95 million), slugger Franmil Reyes ($4.55 million), catcher Austin Hedges ($4 million), starter Cal Quantrill ($2.51 million), and outfielders Bradley Zimmer ($1.3 million) and Josh Naylor ($1.2 million).
CLEVELAND (AP) — Major League Baseball's lengthy lockout this winter didn't have any impact on Shane Bieber's wedding plans. He's still happily getting hitched.
It didn't alter his desire for a long-term union with the Guardians, either.
CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) — A looming lockout at the expiration of baseball's collective bargaining agreement Dec. 1 didn't change much at the general manager's meetings this week.
“I’m not part of the negotiating team, so I mean, business as usual for us,” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said.
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Indians have a new hitting coach. José Ramírez hardly needs one.
Cleveland picked up the All-Star third baseman's $12 million contract option for 2022 on Friday after he had another MVP-caliber season.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Indians manager Terry Francona is confident he'll return next season after missing most of the past two because of serious health issues.
Francona was forced to step away from the club in late July to undergo hip replacement surgery as well as a procedure on a big toe that was partially removed last winter after it became infected.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The injury-depleted Cleveland Indians placed outfielder Eddie Rosario on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a right abdominal strain.
