Last season was Guzman's injury, so he's gonna need to log some innings this year in AAA before he'll make a significant impact when he comes up for good next year.

A tear in your labrum isn't something to put lightly, it's much more difficult to come back from that then a back injury or whatever else Hamels has endured.
P.S. Just took a better look at him and he is pitching better this year considering. It's hard to say what his stuff is like now since it has changed since his surgery. I've heard his FB sits back in the low to mid 90's, yet his change up isn't what it used to be, and he didn't throw his curve much last year (not sure about it this year).

Yeah I understand, though Guzman did arm issues since then. He had forearm stiffness last year that made him most all of last year, only pitched 18 total innings.

He's still quite young and has always been highly coveted by the Cubs despite the injuries (a pattern there jk). I wish all Cub fans and their players the best of luck. The losing will end sometime I hope.
