Reliable sources tell Covering the Corner that the Guardians have placed centerfielder Myles Straw on waivers.

All MLB teams would now have a chance to claim Straw. Given the length of his remaining contract, I would guess he would clear waivers and rejoin Cleveland who will still be the hook for the remaining $15 million he is owed, but pay him while he is in Columbus and clear a 26-man spot.

This would still be an aggressive move for Cleveland’s ownership and front office which is typically reticent to move on from players to whom they owe any amount of significant payroll.
