Devil Rays May Look at Joel Guzman at First Base

Don't be surprised if the Tampa Bay Devil Rays give rookie Joel Guzman a look at first base if and when he's added to the 40-man expanded roster Sept. 1. Incumbent Travis Lee, though swinging a hot bat lately, literally can't hit his weight, and patience runs short. Even though Guzman, acquired from the Dodgers in the Danys Baez deal, has been trained as a third baseman, he should be capable of crossing the diamond. Besides, the Rays are already committed to the conversion of ex-shortstop B.J. Upton at third.
