Chicago Cubs reliever and former wunderkind prospect Angel Guzman is
out of options and doesn’t look likely to make the Cubs bullpen. Thus,
he gone. At some point. To someone.
MLB Trade Rumors is
speculating that the someone (well, some team, I suppose is more
accurate) is the Pittsburgh Pirates.
[The Pirates] would like to add pitching to the mix,
mentioning free agency but qualifying that route as “very unlikely.”
The Bucs may prefer to acquire an out of options player as they did
with Yates last year…maybe Angel Guzman.
That’s the kind of team he’s likely to end up with – a team that can
hope for the upside, but risk the downside because they aren’t
actually in line to compete this year.
