Guardians' Ethan Hankins: Makes start at High-A
Hankins (elbow) tossed 1.1 innings Saturday and was charged with three earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out two after High-A Lake County activated him Tuesday.
Hankins was making his first appearance at a full-season affiliate since Aug. 29, 2019, with his lone other outing since that time coming in a rehab appearance at the rookie-ball level last August.

Indians' Ethan Hankins: Held back in extended ST
Hankins is opening the year in extended spring training before being assigned to a short-season affiliate in June, MLB.com reports.
The good news is that Hankins is healthy, but we will have to wait a couple months to see him in game action this year. He will need to work on repeating his delivery and controlling his electric arsenal, but he has top-of-the-rotation upside if it all comes together. Look for him to begin the year in either the AZL or the New York-Penn League.... See More ... See Less
