RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

The 6-foot-5, 205-pound Guzman has finally been able to tap into his power potential over the last year or so. The left-handed slugger belted a career-high 15 home runs in 102 games at Double-A in 2016. Perhaps most importantly, he saw a rise in the number of free passes drawn while his strikeout ratio fell. The improvement in plate discipline also resulted in a .288 batting average, along with a .348 on-base percentage -- the highest OBP for Guzman at any level of full-season ball during his minor league career. The 22-year-old did struggle a bit at Triple-A to end the season, though, so that is where he will begin the 2017 campaign. The Rangers don't exactly have a rousing set of options at first base, so despite Guzman's rather mediocre power numbers, he could get a crack at first base in the big leagues by the end of the 2017 season, especially after getting added to the 40-man roster this offseason.

2016

Guzman was part of the same legendary 2011 July 2 signing class as Nomar Mazara and Rougned Odor, but he has not developed on the same trajectory as his organization mates. The thought was that the lanky 6-foot-5 Guzman could be a middle-of-the order threat in time, but he is looking a bit more like a James Loney type, without the defense. He posted a .283/.324/.434 slash line with 12 homers in 131 games across Low-A and High-A as a 20-year-old in 2015, but there is not as much power projection left as one might think, given his age, position, and size. That said, he has a tendency to put the barrel on the baseball, so he could hit 35-plus doubles with regularity if he can find his way into an everyday role. There will be a pretty big adjustment period for him against Double-A pitching in 2016, so he will likely spend the entire year at Frisco.

2014

A knee injury limited Guzman to just 49 games at Low-A Hickory, where he slashed .272/.325/.387, but there are some concerns about his eventual power profile, despite his large frame (6-5, 205). He's a very natural hitter but one with limited upside, which figures to disappoint some. He deserves at least a healthy and full season first, so 2014 figures to be a big year for him from a development standpoint.
