Guyer hit a solo home run in a 1-for-2 game Tuesday night against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Guyer hadn't homered in his past 21 games, although he managed to keep himself useful with a .345 OBP (fueled, remarkably, by five hit-by-pitches). His nine home runs marks a career high, as he needed 128 games to hit eight home runs last season with the Rays. Guyer has hit 52 doubles compared to 20 home runs over the past three seasons, and we should expect his power to mostly come in the form of doubles in the future.

Guyer is out of the lineup for the second straight game Sunday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Guyer will rest for the second day in a row in favor of Abraham ALmonte in left field, but no word of an injury has surfaced. Prior to Saturday's absence from the lineup, he had started five games in a row, going 5-for-14 at the plate over that span. As long as he's healthy, Guyer should return to action during the upcoming three-game series against the As.

Guyer is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against Toronto.

EDGE Analysis

Abraham Almonte will take over for Guyer in left field for Saturday's matchup against Aaron Sanchez and the Blue Jays. Guyer has proven to be an excellent trade deadline addition for the Tribe, slashing .414/.485/.586 with eight RBI and just five strikeouts in 29 at-bats since coming over from Tampa Bay.

Guyer will start in left field and bat seventh in the order Thursday against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Guyer will make his Indians debut Thursday afternoon after getting shipped to Cleveland in a deadline deal. He should see relatively consistent playing time for manager Terry Francona, especially against left-handed pitching.

Guyer was traded to Indians on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Outfielder Nathan Lukes and right-hander Jhonleider Salinas are headed to the Rays in return. Guyer's overall line this season isn't anything to write home about, but he was overexposed to right-handed pitching during his time with Tampa Bay. He hit .344/.488/.594 against lefties (compared to .196/.277/.324 against right-handers) and should make for a solid platoon partner with Lonnie Chisenhall in right field.

Guyer is out of the lineup Sunday against the Yankees, MLB.com's Bill Chastain reports. It's the third time he's been on the bench in the Rays' last five games.

EDGE Analysis

Guyer was squeezed out of the lineup for a game this past week in Los Angeles when no DH was available in the National League park, and he'll now sit out out for the second time in the three-game series with the Yankees. The non-contending Rays are expected to deal away one of their bats -- Steve Pearce being the most likely candidate -- prior to Monday's non-waiver trade deadline, so perhaps that could open up some more frequent at-bats for Guyer.

Guyer is out of the lineup Saturday against the Yankees, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Guyer's playing time is starting to dry up as his second-half struggles continue, with Saturday's absence marking his third in five games. The 30-year-old is just 6-for-32 since the All-Star break and 9-for-59 in July, and he may continue to lose out on at-bats against right-handed pitching if he doesn't pick it up.

Guyer is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Dodgers, the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Rays will deploy Corey Dickerson, Steven Souza and Kevin Kiermaier across the outfield Wednesday, as they try to flood the lineup with lefties against righty Brandon McCarthy. Guyer is hitting just .200 with zero home runs in 30 at-bats in the second half.

Guyer is out of the lineup Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Guyer has produced only six hits in 28 at-bats since the All-Star break, so manager Kevin Cash will give the outfielder a mental day off with the hope of igniting his production. Corey Dickerson will assume Guyer's usual post in left field.

Guyer, who went 1-for-3 with two walks and two runs in Wednesday's 11-3 victory over the Rockies, also got on base through being hit by a pitch for a majors-leading 22nd time.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder continues to get plunked with alarming regularity, but still remains well behind the modern-day record of 50 hit-by-pitches endured by Ron Hunt of the 1971 Montreal Expos. Guyer has also cooled off considerably at the plate after a scorching first six weeks of the season, having now seen his average drop 82 points since May 16, including 28 points to date in July.
