In 89 games with the Nationals this season, Guzman hit a solid .282 and scored 44 runs. He also proved to be a versatile fielder by stepping in at second base, shortstop, and right field. With Ian Kinsler's placement on the disabled list due to a "left groin strain", the Rangers are stocking up on infielders with the addition of Guzman and ex-Marlin Jorge Cantu.
It was originally reported that Guzman was generating interest from the Phillies, but the 11-year veteran is a great pick up for Texas, and although he won't put up the same power numbers that Kinsler does, he will bring a solid glove and an even better baseball mind to a club trying to reach new heights. Adam Kennedy looks to become the full-time second baseman for the Nats and Ian Desmond will fill in as the full-time shortstop.
