MLB Trade Rumors: Christian Guzman Being Dealt To Clear Salary for Stephen Strasburg?

New, comment

Nick Cafardo from the Boston Globe is reporting that the Red Sox have claimed Washington Nationals shortstop Christian Guzman on waivers. Now we just have to wait to see if they can come to agreement on a deal.

Guzman's current deal with the Nationals is for $8 million. Does this sound like the Nationals are clearing salary to pay 1st round pick Stephen Strasburg?

Fantasy/roto owners would have to look to Alberto Gonzalez as Guzman's replacement at SS and Ronnie Belliard seeing more time at 2B.
