Guzman is starting and hitting second against a RHP.
I guess they seem to think his .224 OBP will serve the heart of the order well.
Not that Kennedy's .234 is much better... but his .180 BABIP makes me believe he's hitting into some bad luck. Guzman is posting a .224 with a .270 BABIP. Ouch.
I agree - Kennedy has been hitting better recently and he is better than Guz in the field. Guz can only play if his bat is hot b/c he does not draw walks. He is a streaky guy, so when he is cold (such as right now), I would sit him for a while.
