When you enter a game as a major league batter, you know you’re on fire. After that, go 5-for-5.


Steven Kwan, a rookie outfielder for the Cleveland Guardians, had his American League debut over the weekend, and it was a big one.

Kwan provided plenty of reasons for his boss and his squad to be happy.

The 24-year-old left-handed hitter went 3-for-5 with a double and three walks in the Guardians’ opening two games of the season, both against Kansas City.

Kwan was 5-for-5 with a double, four singles, one hit by pitch, and four runs scored in Cleveland’s 17-3 triumph over the Royals on Sunday.

Kwan is batting a gaudy.333 in his first three games in the major leagues. With two doubles, four runs, three walks, and no strikeouts, he hit 800 (8-for-10),.857 on-base percentage, 1.000 slugging percentage, and 1.857 OPS.

The Guardians were one of the worst offensive teams in the American League last season, and they made no changes in the offseason to improve their attack.

As a result, Kwan’s early emergence as a nagging bat-to-ball artist is a welcome sight for his management and teammates.

“What he’s doing doesn’t surprise me,” Kwan outfielder Oscar Mercado said. “He’s a fantastic player who understands himself and his abilities. He’s a firecracker, and it’ll be thrilling to watch him play this season.”
