Winless in Hot Dog Race, Mustard optioned by Guardians

August 8th, 2022

CLEVELAND, OH - The Cleveland Guardians today announced the following roster moves:

Optioned Mustard to High-A Lake County. The club did not make a corresponding move.

Mustard, 17, has struggled at a historic pace this season, failing to secure a victory in any of the first 50 Sugardale Hot Dog races at Progressive Field in 2022 (one race was rained out). The tantrum-throwing condiment is being sent down to the Guardians High-A team – the Lake County Captains – to try and get his mental and physical game back to a MLB-caliber level. He is expected to report to the Captains on Monday and race in Tuesday’s contest.

2022 Sugardale Hot Dog race results:
Ketchup: 25
Onion: 25
Mustard: 0
