Guardians Chop Two Former Top Prospects From Roster

The Cleveland Guardians have designated two of baseball's former Top-100 prospects for assignment, in getting down to the 26-man roster limit. Left-hander Logan Allen and first baseman Bobby Bradley have been DFA'd.

After a 2+ year disappointing run in Cleveland, which features a 5.80 ERA and a 1.63 WHIP, the 25-year-old Allen appears to have come to the end of his time with the Guardians. Even his time in Triple-A in the Cleveland organization was extremely disappointing, where his ERA has hovered closer to 8.00. 

Bradley had only managed 2 hits in 17 at-bats this season with the Guardians, but his previous couple of shots with the big club didn't fare much better, as he has a career average of .199 in 307 at-bats with Cleveland. 

The 25-year-old had displayed plenty of power in the minors, and though he hit 16 home runs in his part-time shot with the Guardians in 2021, he still didn't show enough ability to get on base to win the first base job going forward. 

The Guardians also activated Anthony Castro from the Covid IL and optioned him to Triple-A Columbus.
