A quick-shot this Friday morning before I get buried under 2 feet of snow.
1B/DH Jesus Guzman, who was DFA’d late last month, has cleared waivers and will be outrighted to AAA Fresno with an invite to Spring Training. Guzman has generated a lot of interest among Giants fans because of his 2009 season with the Fresno Grizzlies when he hit: .321/.379/.507 in 452 at-bats. I’ve written a little about Guzman on this site before, but he’s essentially a .750 OPS hitter (best case scenario) in the majors with a poor glove at first by most scouting reports.
In other words, he’s probably not that much different than Huff.
He’ll get shuffled back into the mix of other options at first base: Ishikawa, Guzman, Huff, etc. I except that he’ll start the year back in AAA.
