Maybe the New York Yankees General Manager Brian Cashmanhad a memory in his mind of that game of three home runs at Yankee Stadium (2018) when signing the lanky Dominican Ronald GuzmanOr maybe the club is simply taking a flyer from a minor league deal to see if Guzman can unlock his potential in a new environment.
If he performs well in spring training, Guzman’s 6-foot-3, 225-pound, left-handed bat could buy him playing time on a Yankees roster packed with right-handed hitters:
