Littleton Up, Guzman Down
Yesterday, Texas recalled reliever WES LITTLETON from AAA Oklahoma and optioned outfielder FREDDY GUZMAN to AAA.
In a mild surprise, Guzman hung around for three games beyond the end of Texas’s tour through NL parks. Guzman had no value beyond pinch running because Gary Matthews occupies his natural position, and Buck Showalter avoids pinch hitting like the plague. Littleton didn’t make an appearance in his first stint with the club.
