Guzman takes day off Thursday

Nationals shortstop Cristian Guzman made two throwing errors in the ninth inning Wednesday and we now know what the problem is. According to interim manager Jim Riggleman, Guzman has a tender right shoulder and will get the day off Thursday.

Riggleman said that Guzman has been playing with the bad shoulder for at least a month.  This is not the first time Guzman has had shoulder problems. He missed the entire 2006 season because of a tear inside the shoulder, an injury many believe surfaced when he was a member of the Twins.

Entering Thursday’s action, Guzman is hitting .285 with six home runs and 50 RBIs.
