    Guardians add offense, depth with three catchers on opening day roster: 2023 MLB season preview

    Manager Terry Francona prioritizes a catcher's ability to manage games and get pitchers through their starts over what they can offer at the plate. While the club waits for top prospect Bo Naylor to finish developing in the minors, it added veterans Mike Zunino and Cam Gallagher to handle the pitching staff, and kept a third catcher in Meibrys Viloria to bring some pop off the bench.

    Cleveland Guardians' 2023 season preview: 3 things to watch for

    The Cleveland Guardians will open their 2023 season when they face the Seattle Mariners at T-Mobile Park at 10:10 p.m. ET on Thursday night. With that in mind, here are three things to look for from the Guardians this season as they look to build on last season's success. Despite laying claim to the youngest roster in baseball, with a franchise record-tying 17 players making their MLB debuts, Cleveland tallied a 92-70 record in 2022, winning the American League Central Division by 11 games. In doing so, the Guardians became the first team with baseball's youngest roster to make the playoffs since the 1986 New York Mets and proceeded to beat the Tampa Bay Rays in the Wild Card round before falling to the New York Yankees in five games in the American League Championship Series.
