Originally part of the Royals organization, Jeison Guzmán was able to elect free agency at the end of last season, when he got picked up by the Diamondbacks. Going into 2021, he was ranked ninth by Fangraphs in the Royals organization. The highest level he's played at was AA this past season, where he slashed .216 / .263 / .328 for a suboptimal wRC+ of 57. However, in High-A last season, he held a slash line of .289 / .352 / .465. Much better. At the tail end of last year he was assigned to AAA Reno, so look forward to seeing him at his highest level yet right out of the gate.
