Righthander Angel Guzman signed with the Dodgers as a minor league free agent in December, but the long-time Cub has yet to take the field for his new organization. Now that debut date has been pushed back by 50 games following Guzman's suspension.
The 29-year-old violated baseball's drug prevention and treatment program, twice testing positive for a so-called drug of abuse.
Guzman ranked as the Cubs' No. 1 prospect following the 2003 season, and he reached Chicago every season from 2006 through ’09, logging 157 innings and posting a 4.82 ERA and 1.43 WHIP to go with 8.2 strikeouts per nine innings. He pitched sporadically during the past two seasons while dealing with injuries.
