Guzmán will be in his second stint with the Rangers this season, as he was also with the club from Opening Day-July 29.  His lone game during the first stint was a start at first base on July 25 vs. Colorado, when he went 1-for-4.  Guzmán saw action in 13 games before the shutdown this spring, batting .194 (7-36), and hit .111 (4-36) over 11 intrasquad games after a late start to Summer Camp.

Guzmán has batted .229 with a .721 OPS over his Major League career, spanning 211 games with Texas from 2018-20.  His 177 starts at first base in 2018-19 were the most of any Ranger.
