WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Guzman is an outfielder who has good size and speed.  He was already 21 when he signed.

2013
DSL:  275/350/358, 109 AB, 1 2B, 4 3B, 13 BB, 27 K, 19-22 SB

Guzman had a solid debut in a part-time role.  He played mostly left and a little in right.

Guzman will turn 23 during the 2014 season, so it’s hard to see him as a prospect.  Given his age, the Pirates could send him to Bristol or possibly even Jamestown.  By the time the short season teams opened play, though, Guzman still wasn’t on any roster, apparently due to visa issues.
