Guzman went 2-for-4 with a home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Friday's 8-4 win over the Royals.
The 23-year-old has now homered in four consecutive starts, an incredible feat for a player who only hit 12 home runs total in 125 games last year for Triple-A Round Rock. Guzman's now got six homers in 32 games in 2018 for the Rangers, and his .226/.293/.472 slash line is rising rapidly -- before his power binge, he was at .187/.253/.319.
Guzman is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Royals.
Guzman has a home run in three consecutive games but will head to the bench with the Royals sending left-hander Danny Duffy to the mound. The 23-year-old has only 12 at-bats against southpaws this season, as the Rangers will start Ryan Rua at first base Thursday.
Guzman went 2-for-4 with a home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Wednesday's 12-10 win over the Yankees.
After a rough start to his time in the majors, Guzman has suddenly caught fire, homering in three straight games to give him five on the season. The 23-year-old's .218/.288/.426 slash line through 30 games remains poor, but the rebuilding Rangers should continue to give Guzman plenty of reps as they try to determine if he's the answer for them at first base in the long run.
Guzman went 2-for-3 with a home run and a walk in Tuesday's win over the Yankees.
Guzman slugged a home run for the second consecutive day, and nine of his 20 hits have gone for extra bases this year. This was Guzman's first multi-hit game of May, and his batting line is sitting at a rough .206/.280/.392. A major problem for the 23-year-old is the fact that he's striking out nearly 35-percent of the time.
Guzman is not in the lineup Sunday against the White Sox, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Guzman continues to scuffle at the plate, as he currently sports a meager .187 average while having not compiled a multi-hit game since April 27. He'll be relieved of his starting duties Sunday, with Ryan Rua set to fill in at first base.
