Guzman pitched 1.1 inning giving up 1 hit, 1 walk and struck out 1, he was relieved bu newly acquired Casey Fossum.
The first batter he face in the game was Texas Rangers CF Josh Hamilton which is also on a rehab start for the Rangers. Guzman force Hamilton to ground out.
If everything goes well for Ramirez and Johnson, they can come back as early as Monday and Guzman will either come back Monday or Tuesday if not setbacks.
