Kwan's all-out dive nets 1st Play of the Week nod

June 21st, 2022

Rookie outfielder of the Cleveland Guardians earned his first career Electric Play of the Week Award presented by Chevrolet, and he's Cleveland’s first winner since his teammate Oscar Mercado in September 2019.

In the bottom of the seventh inning with the Guardians leading by one run and runners on first and third at Coors Field, Kwan sprinted to deep left field to make a diving catch and preserve Cleveland’s lead vs. the Rockies.

Additional Play of the Week candidates included Martín Maldonado’s diving catch behind home plate; Brandon Nimmo’s diving catch in left-center field; Trevor Story’s jump-throw after fielding a ground ball up the middle; and rookie Jerar Encarnacion’s throw from right field to nab the runner at second.
