Ronald Guzman was signed by the Texas Rangers as a non-drafted free agent on July 2, 2011.  The 20-year-old is two months removed from his third Minor League season and second with Class A Hickory, where he hit .218 with six homers and 63 RBIs in 118 games. The Rangers signed the left-handed hitter in July 2011.

This comes about a year after Texas Rangers pitcher Joseph Ortiz was struck by a motorcycle injuring his foot, which caused him to miss the entire 2014 season.

Last year it seemed like the injury bug started with the dog incident with Derek Holland, hopefully the 2015 season can avoid the same bad luck with the injuries.
