Sept. 7: Guduan has cleared release waivers and is now a free agent.
Sept. 5: Guduan has been placed on release waivers, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic tweets. He’ll become a free agent if he goes unclaimed.
Sept. 3: The Astros have designated lefty Reymin Guduan for assignment. He had been on the restricted list owing to a team-issued suspension.
Details of the Guduan disciplinary situation aren’t known, but it’s obvious the relationship between him and the team has soured. The 27-year-old was suspended for the remainder of the minor-league season, which just ended, but the team decided to drop him from the 40-man rather than reinstating him and perhaps adding him back to the active roster.
Beyond those off-field issues, the results haven’t been there to this point of Guduan’s career. Despite big velocity and some swing-and-miss potential, he’s allowing nearly an earned run per inning over his 24 2/3 MLB frames. Guduan has had wavering command issues at times in the minors, with outcomes varying quite a bit from season to season. Still, there’s obviously talent there; it wouldn’t be especially surprising to see another organization place a claim.
He hit a teammate in the head with a baseball bat.
they should cuz Deetz too. he’s a cheater and from what im hearing a rude person as well.
Bc he’s rude? Lmao
because his method of “motivating” his teammates sounds unreasonably acrimonious, and again, he’s one to talk given his history of using the banned substances he’s had. obviously not on the same level as Guduan’s infraction but not healthy for clubhouse culture either.
Apparently threatened him with a knife as well. I’d stay far away from this dude if I were a GM.
The utter lack of command was reason enough for any GM to stay away from him.
I heard he killed a guy with a trident.
Comment of the day
Wow. I was wondering what it took to get cut by a team with Roberto Osuna on it. Guess that’s it.
Based upon this new evidence I wouldn’t say his relationship soured but rather hit hard times!
They’re going to call up Kent Emanuel, another lefty who has been pitching well at Round Rock. Former high draft pick out of North Carolina
Would he get along well with Keone Kela?
I didn’t realize Kent Emmanuel was pitching after he wrote all those books of analytical philosophy……
I may be a little confused here……
………in an existential way.
He’s lucky he’s not in jail
Holy overreaction of posters here. Some will change & sign him. Look at Matt Bush or all those that cheated with steroids.
what Bush did was terrible, but he seems like he is one of few who has really turned their life around for the better after his legal issues and addiction. no model citizen by any means, but I practicing forgiveness really is something society does not do for the right individuals.
Orioles need to claim this guy just to make Chris Davis feel threatened by violence and want to leave the team due to the hostile work environment. Hey its worth a shot.
