Guzman to Padres?

Cubs pitcher Angel Guzman is out of options, opening up speculation that he could be on the move before Opening Day. The Padres have been looking to add cheap pitching, and may be willing to part with a low level prospect or cash for him. Guzman was once considered a highly touted prospect for the Cubs, but hasn't been able to put a full season together since dealing with shoulder problems in 2005. Guzman also had elbow surgery in 2007, cutting his seasons short.

However, Guzman has shown flashes of a good pitcher and is just 27 years old. He played well in Winter Ball, but is having a tough Spring. Other teams that could make a play for Guzman include the Astros, Athletics, Marlins, and Blue Jays, among others.
