Guzman is not in Friday's starting lineup against the Mariners. Guzman will get a breather with Connor Sadzeck set to take the mound for Seattle. Jurickson Profar is penciled into the starting nine at first base and Shin-Soo Choo will slot in as the designated hitter with Guzman on the bench.
Guzman is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rays. As per usual, Guzman will take a seat on the bench with a left-hander in Blake Snell toeing the rubber for the Rays. Jurickson Profar will cover first base in his stead, opening up a spot for Isiah Kiner-Falefa to start at the hot corner.
Guzman is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Padres. Guzman, who is 3-for-20 over his last eight games, will head to the bench for the second straight game with the Padres sending left-hander Eric Lauer to the mound. Jurickson Profar will start at first base and Adrian Beltre will start at third base, since the Rangers are without a designated hitter in a National League park.
Guzman isn't included in Friday's starting lineup against the Padres, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports. Guzman will get the night off with lefty Robbie Erlin taking the mound for San Diego. Jurickson Profar is slated to man first base and bat seventh in Guzman's absence.
Guzman is not starting Tuesday against the Angels. Guzman had a two-run homer in Monday's contest but won't get the chance to build on that performance right away. Jurickson Profar will slide over to first base in his absence.
