Cleveland Guardians recall Mustard from Single-A Lake County

The Cleveland Guardians have recalled Mustard after a short stint in the minor leagues.

CLEVELAND — One week after optioning Mustard to their High-A affiliate, the Lake County Captains, the Cleveland Guardians are giving the condiment another chance.

On Monday, the Guardians announced that they have recalled Mustard to the big league level, where he had previously lost his first 50 Hot Dog Races during the 2022 season.

"We have made a last minute roster move before today's doubleheader," the Guardians' official Twitter account posted, announcing Mustard's return. "He is in the building, and we can confirm that he is a changed ma... hotdog. Welcome back, Mustard!"

The Guardians' Hot Dogs account also posted a video of Mustard making his return to Progressive Field ahead of Monday's double-header vs. the Detroit Tigers.

Just days prior to Mustard's demotion, 3News' Austin Love investigated the mysterious circumstances surrounding the condiment's winless season. Was Mustard's demotion fair, or just part of a larger conspiracy that continues to plague the condiment's 2022 season? 

Judge for yourself by watching Austin's report in the YouTube player below.

Regardless of the circumstances surrounding his demotion, Mustard made the most of his opportunity in the minor leagues, winning his first Hot Dog Race at Classic Park. 3News' Lydia Esparra was on the scene in Eastlake to capture Mustard's big win, which could prove to be just the start of a larger comeback story.

Whether Mustard's success in the minors will translate to his first big league of 2022 remains to be seen. But it seems like a safe bet that his rivals, Ketchup and Onion, will be dealing with a version of their yellow counterpart that they haven't seen in nearly a year.
