News: Guzman has elected free agency.
Impact: Relegated to a bench role upon Jonathan Singleton's promotion in early June, Guzman went just 11-for-67 (.164 average) over the final four months of the season. Guzman was outrighted off the 40-man roster earlier in the week, but he's refused his assignment and will instead look to latch on elsewhere as a reserve.

News: Guzman was outrighted off the Astros' 40-man roster Thursday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Impact: Guzman played regularly at first base in April and May, but took a back seat once Jonathan Singelton was promoted, logging just 67 at-bats over the final four months of the season. He finished with just a .188/.272/.248 batting line, and is clearly not a factor in the team's long-term plans.
