Guardians Fans Continue To Ask A Major Bo Naylor Question

TheCleveland Guardianscould use just about any offensive contribution (or reliable contributor) they have available in the organization.

They just aren t very good at scoring a lot of runs, and the numbers back that up.

Their MLB catchers have all struggled to get anything going at the plate with any semblance of reliability.

However, in Triple-A, they have a potentially game-changing catcher and hitter in Bo Naylor.

Josh s brother is proving, once again, that he can handle Triple-A pitching.

Will he get the chance to prove himself in the bigs?

We don t know, but he is very much deserving of an extended shot.

Guardians Prospect Bo Naylor with his 13th HR of the year. He has a .261 BA, .916 OPS, and 47 BB to 52 K at AAA. Mike Zunino = 137 PA, .182 BA, .591 OPS, -0.1 WAR. Cam Gallagher = 77 PA, .137 BA, 333 OPS, -0.4 WAR. David Fry= 18 PA, .118 BA, .284 OPS, -0.2 WAR, Prospect Larceny tweeted.

Yes, it s true that the Guards have a lot of resources invested in Mike Zunino.

However, if they want to significantly improve their 31-35 record, they need to stop shooting themselves in the foot and call up the younger Naylor.

This is actually his second straight successful stint in Triple-A.

Last year, he slashed .257/.366/.514 in 66 games there.

In 2023, he is at .256/.393/.507 in 58 games.

He even trimmed his strikeout rate from 25.9 percent last year to 19.8 percent this season in Triple-A.

In other words, he has gotten better and is more equipped to deal with MLB pitching.

He is ready for a prominent role in MLB as soon as the Guardians are.
