The Rangers continue to plug Guzman into the daily lineup -- he's started 10 consecutive games -- but the law of diminishing returns is setting in.

Guzman went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against Oakland. He followed up with an 0-for-3 effort in the nightcap.
Guzman was part of a five-run first inning in the opening game that gave Texas all it needed to win. The homer was his third of the season and snapped a streak of 10 at-bats without a hit.

Through 10 games on the season, Guzman is slashing a blistering .346/.414/.692, but his .737 career OPS is probably a better representation of what he'll provide the rest of the way. With Danny Santana (hamstring) having been ruled out for the rest of the season, Guzman at least appears to have secured an everyday role at first base. He'll bat seventh for the Rangers in Monday's series finale for what will be his seventh start in nine games.

The lefty-hitting Guzman got the start at first base with a left-hander on the hill, a handedness against whom he has a career .568 OPS. After recent moves, the Rangers are giving Guzman a chance to be the primary starter at first base regardless of the opposing pitcher. This isn't the first time Guzman's had a chance, but slumps and a power profile not befitting a corner infielder have sabotaged him. Since his callup from the alternate camp, Guzman is 6-for-11 with a double, a triple and a home run.
Guzman will be the primary starter at first base after the Rangers traded Todd Frazier, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.
Along with injury-list transactions, the Rangers were active sellers at Monday's trade deadline, so there will be changes when they open a series against the Astros on Tuesday. Guzman, who was called up from the alternate camp last week, is 4-for-7 with a home run in the past two games. This situation could change if Danny Santana (elbow) returns this season, particularly if Guzman is unable to sustain his early success since being called up.
Guzman went 3-for-3 with a solo home run, a double, a walk and three runs scored Saturday against the Dodgers.
Guzman was recalled from the Rangers' alternate site Friday but got the chance to start at first base Saturday. He took advantage of the opportunity, first smacking a solo home run to lead off the third inning.

The injury to Danny Santana could open playing time for Guzman, though he still isn't likely to get everyday at-bats.
Guzman was recalled from the Rangers' alternate training site Friday.
Guzman was on the Rangers' Opening Day roster, but he's spent time at alternate camp since the end of July.
