Latest Update Guzman has elected free agency. Sat Oct, 11, 02:08 PM
Can be a quality hitter, especially against lefties, with the ability to make consistent contact. Also, he can play a corner outfield position, as well as first base.
Flaws: : Struggles against right-handed pitching. Doesn't really have a position to call his own at the big-league level. Also, he has below-average tools across the board.
His path to playing time was blocked once Jonathan Singleton was brought up to be the everyday first baseman in June, and he was outrighted off the Astros' 40-man roster this week. He is going to try to latch on as a reserve on some other team this off-season, but his limited offense numbers do not provide a lot for teams to invest in.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
Both are still likely to receive invites to spring training, but the team will add a few new faces to the 40-man roster and give them a look as well. Guzman has some pop in his bat, but playing part-time isn't going to help fantasy owners at all.Analyst: Howard Bender
Back spasms took Guzman out earlier this month but has been lighting it up at Triple-A Oklahoma City to the tune of a .615 average with three doubles, five RBI, and a 2/3 K/BB ratio over four rehab games. He had been hitting just .200/.275/.269 over his last 60 games with the Astros this season and it looks like he'll serve in a bench role in his return. Analyst: Drew Phelps
Guzman isn't relevant even in AL-only leagues, but he could be a sneaky play against lefties in daily games.Analyst: Steve Pimental
