Guyer (wrist) may not be ready for Opening Day, though he's expected to be fine for the majority of the season, Zack Meisel of The Athletic Cleveland reports.

EDGE Analysis

Guyer hurt his right wrist in mid-September and eventually underwent surgery in October. While the issue may keep him sidelined to start the 2018 campaign, it doesn't sound like he'll miss too much action. He hit .236/.326/.327 in 70 games last season.

Manager Terry Francona said Guyer will undergo surgery on his right wrist, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Guyer has been sidelined since mid-September with a wrist issue. While he was hoping to return during Cleveland's postseason run, his injury showed no signs of improving, prompting the Indians to send him for surgery. A timeline for his recovery should become available once the Indians provide further information regarding his status.

Manager Terry Francona said Guyer (wrist) is unlikely to play in the postseason, even if the Indians advance to the World Series, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Guyer hurt his wrist in mid-September, and it appears the ailment will force him to miss out on the playoffs. He appeared in just 70 games this season, compiling a .236/.326/.327 line in 165 at-bats.

Guyer re-aggravated a wrist injury that forced him to miss six weeks earlier this season, and will be shut down for the next week, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Following a week of no baseball activities, the club will re-evaluate Guyer's condition and determine what the next step will be for the 31-year-old. There hasn't been any word on the severity of this setback, but there should be more news pertaining to Guyer's status within the next few days, if not by the end of the next week once he's been examined. The outfielder was out from mid-May until June 26 with a left wrist sprain earlier this year.

Guyer was a last-minute scratch from Thursday's lineup.

EDGE Analysis

Guyer was all set to man right field, but the White Sox have scratched lefty Carlos Rodon (shoulder) and will send righty Mike Pelfrey to the mound instead. With that, the Indians swapped out Guyer for Lonnie Chisenhall, who will bat sixth in the order.

Guyer (neck) is starting in left field and hitting seventh in Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader against the Tigers, Zack Meisel of The Athletic Cleveland reports.

EDGE Analysis

He left Wednesday's game with a neck strain, but was able to quickly recover. Guyer gets the start against southpaw Matt Boyd in the matinee, but figures to sit in the nightcap against righty Buck Farmer.

Guyer left Wednesday's game against the Indians with a neck strain, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Guyer appeared to injure himself after making a diving catch in the second inning, and although he was able to temporarily stay in the game, the Indians decided to pull him in the fourth inning for precautionary reasons. The severity of the injury isn't clear at this point, but more should be known following the conclusion of the contest. Consider him day-to-day for now; with an off day Thursday, he may not be forced to miss any time.

Guyer will bat second and start in left field in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

He'll check into the lineup for Austin Jackson, who is getting a breather for the front end of the twin bill. A lefty killer throughout his career, Guyer could make for an appealing cost-effective DFS option for the Wednesday slate with southpaw Jaime Garcia toeing the rubber for the Yankees in Game 1.

Guyer went 2-for-3 and scored twice in Monday's 5-4 win over the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

An injury-plagued season has prevented the outfielder from finding any sort of rhythm this year. Guyer's .226/.324/.339 slash line through 55 games is noticeably down from his career marks of .258/.346/.395. He's in line to continue seeing routine chances as a platoon mate while Michael Brantley (ankle) is sidelined, but Guyer's performance (and lack of everyday at-bats) greatly hinders the veteran's fantasy value.

Guyer is out of the lineup Sunday against the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

After submitting a .422 on-base percentage and .882 OPS over his first 16 games out of the All-Star break, Guyer turned in a relative dud Saturday, going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. One bad day won't cost Guyer at-bats, but he'll still probably need to stay hot in order to fend off Austin Jackson and Abraham Almonte for starts in right field until Lonnie Chisenhall (calf) returns from the 10-day disabled list. Almonte gets the nod in right field for the series finale.
