Rangers left fielder Ronald Guzmán exited Monday’s game in the first inning after he pulled up awkwardly while charging in on a shallow fly ball that was caught by shortstop Isiah Kiner-Falefa. The Rangers said he suffered a right knee injury and would be evaluated further.
Guzmán was examined by the team physician on the field and removed his right shoe before being carted off. He was replaced by Eli White in left field.
Guzmán has seen time at first base, designated hitter and in left field for the Rangers. He came in to Monday’s contest at Tropicana Field batting .063 with one home run and one RBI in 16 at-bats this year.
The lefty has spent all four of his big league seasons with the Rangers. In his career, Guzmán has hit .227 with 31 home runs and 104 RBIs.
