Rumor: Myles Straw Placed on Waivers

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 have his choice of teams to join on the minimum salary while Cleveland will be on the hook for the remaining $15 million he is owed.

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