Giants Two-Way Player Makes Push For Opening Day Role With Impressive Outing

San Francisco Giants first baseman Ronald Guzman recently made the decision to expand his game and become a pitcher.

As a first baseman, he's played in 246 games and multiple seasons of Winter Ball, however, this spring training he's making waves as a two-way player.

During a recent game against the Milwaukee Brewers, he took the mound in the seventh inning and showed off his skills as a left-handed reliever. Despite having little experience as a pitcher, he struck out the side, didn't allow any hits, and impressed his manager, Gabe Kapler, with his pitching.

Guzman has been working hard to develop his pitching skills and has been executing his secondary pitches for strikes, including a hard slider and the ability to reach back for 98 mph when needed.

His potential as a pitcher has added another dimension to his game, and he hopes to continue playing both positions.

Although he may not make the big league team right away, his impressive performance as a two-way player could lead to a call-up in the future. However, as of right now, he's making a strong case to land a spot in the Giants' bullpen.
