Good news for Cleveland Guardians: He is back..

Josh Naylor Explains Why the Guardians Will Return in 2024
Josh Naylor believes the Cleveland Guardians will have a successful season in 2024.

The Cleveland Guardians had the youngest team in baseball going into the 2017 season, having just finished an ALDS run. Supporters were expecting this young squad to make another breakthrough in 2023 and were primed for another exciting summer.

That wasn’t the case, though. Cleveland placed third in the AL Central at the end of the previous season with a 76-86 record, missing out on the postseason. Although the season was obviously disappointing, there are many reasons to be optimistic that the Guardians will be a strong contender in 2024.

Josh Naylor discussed his confidence in the team’s 2024 comeback on the Cleveland Guardians Podcast during Guards Fest. He is aware that the group’s expectations for the previous year weren’t met, but they are eager to make amends and return to their desired position.

Simply said, it’s each player’s drive. Things happen, and we felt like we were punched in the face a couple times last year. It’s up to you to kind of find that fire in you and take that hit and throw a counterpunch when some years don’t go as planned,” Naylor said.

Naylor is particularly looking forward to the new season because of the team that rookie manager Stephen Vogt has put together.

“It’s nice that we have a new staff member—sort of a staff rebuild. Together, as a group, we’re excited for all the new chances and experiences we will have, as well as the bonds we will forge. and meeting new individuals occasionally before getting to know us as a group, which is why I’m looking forward to this year.”

Naturally, several important players suffered injuries throughout the 2023 campaign, including Naylor, Shane Bieber, and Triston McKenzie. Hopefully, Cleveland will finish 2024 at the top of the with a healthy team and a group that is eager to succeed.
