How good is Joel Guzman

Postby houstonoilers » Sun Jul 23, 2006 3:49 pm

I got offered his Joel Guzman for my Matt Kemp. This ia a Dynasty and I am not to sure who has more potential. I am not sure what Position Guzman will play either. Any insight would be great.

no idea where he's going to play in the majors. They are playing him at LF mostly right now. And yes, Joel Guzman has the "tools" to be great. Much higher ceiling than Kemp. I'd do it unless your league is LF,CF,RF and Kemp's eligibility at CF is precious.

For what it's worth, two of the mose knowledgable guys at the cafe argued over the two prospects here. However, both provide good points so it's probably going to make your decision more difficult !+)

I'd agree with hybrid. Guzman has big power potential, but poor average and will never hit for power if he cannot improve his contact rate or his patience. Pitchers in the bigs just need to throw him breaking pitches off the plate and he will chase all day. Until he can make adjustments he will be unsuccessful.
