Guyer homers in first MLB at bat, Hawk #83 in bigs
Guyer, who played 19 games with the Hawks in 2007, hitting .268 with 14 RBI – launched a two-run home run off Zach Britton in his first MLB at bat. The former University of Virginia standout was part of the trade with the Rays that sent Matt Garza to Chicago – but TB received Sam Fuld, Guyer, and prospects Robinson Chirinos, Chris Archer, and Hak-Ju Lee.
Guyer was hitting .356 with six homers and 18 RBI before his call up.
He joins Al Alburquerque as former Hawks who have made their MLB debut in 2011.
