During a ten game span to start the 2008 season, Guzman has hit an amazing .535, while collecting 23 hits (6 of them for extra bases) and 14 RBI (2nd in the Texas League).

The infielder has helped the RockHounds get off to their best start in franchise history with a 9-1 record this season.

Guzman was signed as a minor league free agent by the Oakland A's this past off-season. The Sucre, Venezuela native has played two seasons (2005 & 2006) in the Texas League with the San Antonio Missions, while in the Seattle Mariners organization.
