Joel Guzman Devil Rays

 

 

I’ll try to keep this brief. Guzman has spent time within many experts past top 10 prospects lists. Now he’d have a hard time cracking a top 200 list. He’s been written off, plain and simple. Sure, there’s plenty to hate like his up and down fielding, his propensity to the strikeout and his displeasure of the walk. Still, the kid is only 22 in AAA. Last season, he was 21 in AAA. Not too many prospects touch AAA at that age. Hell, most college draft picks are 20 or 21 when their drafted (1st overall pick David Price is only 9 months younger than Guzman).

In his past ten games, Guzman is hitting .371 with 3 HR & 10 RBI. Acquired by the Rays for Julio Lugo before the trading deadline last season, Guzman (6-6, 250) may not live up to his lofty potential but he could settle in as a Johnny Gomes type MLB player, with 25+ HR power and a boatload of strikeouts.

Check out this YouTube clip of a towering HR that gets a “Wow” mid-sentence from the color commentator.
