It’s time to find out what the Cleveland Indians really have in Brandon Guyer

A stroll through the Indians outfield, Part II. The Cleveland Indians have decided to go with a horrible, Frankenstein-ian experiment for the second straight year, and try to mold two half-men into one shambling horror. Or, in the parlance of the game, the outfield is going to have some platooning. But we knew that. One of the keys to this platoon is Brandon Guyer, who has the...

The Other Hit-by-Pitch Savant of 2016

In 2016, Brandon Guyer cemented his role as the king of the hit by pitch. In fact, erstwhile FanGraphs author August Fagerstrom used precisely that title when reviewing Guyer’s exceptional ability to put his person between the baseball and the catcher’s glove. Guyer was hit in nearly nine percent of his plate appearances in 2016 and more than six percent of his plate appearances...

The Definitive, Useless Brandon Guyer Leaderboard

With regard to the ZiPS projections for Cleveland that appeared at this site earlier in the day, a few commenters have observed the statistical curiosities for which outfielder Brandon Guyer is responsible.
