On Wednesday morning, the Cleveland Indians, via Twitter, announced that the club had extended outfielder Brandon Guyer to a two-year extension that included a club option for the 2019 season.

The Indians acquired Guyer from the Tampa Bay Rays at the 2016 Trade Deadline on August 1st, sending minor league prospects Nathan Lukes and Jhonleider Salinas to the Rays.

In 2016, Guyer slashed .266/.372/.423 between the two clubs, hitting 9 home runs and driving in 32 runners over 101 games. With Cleveland, Guyer slashed .333/.438/.469, hitting 2 of his 9 home runs and driving in 14 runners in only 96 plate appearances.

Guyer’s deal would pay $5 million combined over the 2017 and 2018 seasons, with the 2019 club option worth $3 million with a buyout of $250,000. In 2017, Guyer will earn $2 million and in 2018, Guyer will earn $2.75 million.

Guyer is well known for his “HBP addiction”, as Guyer has been hit 66 times since the 2014 season, including a league-leading 31 times in 2016. He is expected to take on a corner outfield role with the club for the foreseeable future.
