Younger Brother of Cleveland's Josh Naylor Impressing in Minors


We could be seeing two Naylor's playing for the Cleveland Guardians soon.

Cleveland prospect Bo Naylor has been crushing the ball of late. Since recently being called up to Triple-A, the twenty-two-year-old has slashed .424/.596/.758, with three home runs, nine RBIs, and two stolen bases in July. 

Bo Naylor, the younger brother of Josh Naylor has not put up fantastic numbers throughout his time in the minors but has appeared to finally start putting it together with his power, disciplined approach at the plate, and his speed. The catcher is also very strong behind the plate, which doesn't hurt.

Cleveland could use some extra pop at the catcher position, as that's something they've been lacking this season with Luke Maile and Austin Hedges.

If Naylor, a former first-round pick, can continue to perform well at the Triple-A level, it's a likely possibility Cleveland gives him a chance to play at the major league level soon.
