Rangers' Ronald Guzman: Goes deep twice for Triple-A squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guzman went 2-for-3 with a pair of homers and three RBI for Triple-A Round Rock on Sunday.

After smacking 16 homers across two levels in 2016, Guzman has continued to show growth as a power hitter in his first full season at Round Rock. Guzman's .518 slugging percentage through 151 plate appearances is his best showing at any level of the minors, and could put him on track for a taste of the majors at some point in the second half if he's able to keep it up.

Rangers' Ronald Guzman: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guzman was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Monday, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

This isn't too surprising, as Guzman was mainly added to the 40-man roster for Rule 5 protection. He did slash .288/.348/.477 with 15 homers at Double-A Frisco in 2016, earning himself a promotion to Triple-A as a 21-year-old. However, the production hasn't quite carried over to Triple-A yet, as he slashed just .216/.266/.330 in 25 games there. There was a chance he would fill the void at first base for the Rangers at some point in 2017, although those chances seriously dwindled with the signing of veteran Mike Napoli.

Rangers' Ronald Guzman: Added to 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guzman was added to the Rangers' 40-man roster Friday.

He hit .288/.348/.477 with 15 homers from the left side with Double-A Frisco in 2016, earning a promotion to Triple-A as a 21-year-old late in the year. This move was made primarily for Rule 5 protection, but there is an opening at first base in Arlington, one which Guzman could fill by the end of the 2017 campaign.

Rangers' Ronald Guzman: Promoted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guzman was promoted to Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday, the Fort Worth Star Telegram's Jeff Wilson reports.

Before the season it would have seemed like a bit of a stretch for Guzman to reach Triple-A this year, but he has really blossomed in 2016. He hadn't posted an OPS greater than .780 since 2012 in rookie ball, but this year he slashed .288/.348/.477 (.825 OPS) with 15 home runs in 375 at-bats as a 21-year-old in the Texas League. Guzman won't ever offer 30-homer power, which makes him less flashy than some more prominent first base prospects, but he has the bat-to-ball ability to be a starter at the highest level in a year or two.

Rangers' Ronald Guzman: Showing improved power at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Guzman, 21, is hitting .300/.363/.502 with 14 home runs and a 70:31 K:BB in 338 at-bats for Double-A Frisco.

Famously inked to a $3.45 million bonus as part of the same 2011 J-2 class that netted Nomar Mazara, Guzman has lagged behind Mazara in his development, but things seem to be clicking this year. His previous career-high slugging percentage was .434 last year at High-A, so the strides he has made in the power department are pretty impressive. He has never had a problem making contact, despite his 6-foot-5 frame, so as long as he is hitting for power, there is reason for optimism. As a first base-only prospect, Guzman's bat will need to continue to shine if he hopes to profile as a regular, but he has done enough in 2016 to reestablish himself as one of the more intriguing prospects at the position in the upper levels of the minors.
