News and Notes: Guardians Shortstop Competition Opens Up

Paul Hoynes of Cleveland dot com wrote about the Guardians shortstop competition. It sounds like it'll be either Gabriel Arias or Brayan Rocchio there to start the season.

Hoynes also had a fun anecdote about Vogt facing Clase in the past and notes about how the Guardians are trying to both enhance their baserunning and control other team's baserunning in 2024.

Mandy Bell wrote about how José Ramírez is expected to see time in both the 2nd and 3rd spot in the Guardians lineup. I like the idea of players being flexible in their lineup spot, a possible way to extract some additional advantages that teams often eschew for player comfort's sake.
