Skidding White Sox visit Guardians for home opener

The Chicago White Sox will try to end another four-game losing streak when they open a three-game series against the host Cleveland Guardians on Monday. The White Sox just dropped four straight games to the Royals, just the third time Kansas City swept a four-game series against Chicago.

Twins looking to cool off Guardians’ hot hitters

The Minnesota Twins will go for their first win at home when they square off against the Cleveland Guardians on Saturday afternoon in Minneapolis. Minnesota is coming off a 4-2 loss against the Guardians in its home opener Thursday. The Twins went 0-for-12 with runners in scoring position.

Twins set for home opener vs. hard-hitting Guardians

The Los Angeles Dodgers

Shane Bieber, Guardians look to even series vs. Mariners

Stephen Vogt’s first season as a major-league manager could be made much easier with a healthy Shane Bieber.

Bieber

Guardians’ Triston McKenzie aims for fresh start vs. Mariners

McKenzie (0-3, 5.06 ERA in 2023) is scheduled to make his 2024 debut Monday night when the Guardians open a three-game series at Seattle. McKenzie went 11-11 with a 2.96 ERA in 2022.

Carlos Carrasco aims to send Guardians to sweep of A’s

Guardians’ Tanner Bibee, A’s JP Sears look to show off improvements

After leading the Cleveland Guardians in victories last season and finishing second in the AL Rookie of the Year voting, Tanner Bibee believes he can take his performance to another level this season. The 25-year-old right-hander is scheduled to make his first start of the season on Saturday afternoon against the host Oakland Athletics. Cleveland won the season opener 8-0 on Thursday before posting a 6-4 win Friday night in the second game of a
