The Cleveland Guardians are moving on from designated hitter Franmil Reyes.

Cleveland designated the struggling slugger for assignment, the team announced Saturday.

Reyes went deep nine times with a .603 OPS over 70 games with the Guardians this season. However, he's posted two 30-plus homer campaigns across five years in the majors, including a career-high 37 round-trippers in 2019 and 30 long balls in just 115 contests in 2021.

The 27-year-old Reyes is arbitration-eligible through 2024.

Cleveland also selected right-hander Jake Jewell and released first baseman Bobby Bradley in a flurry of moves.
