To replace him on the roster, the Rangers recalled Patrick Wisdom from Triple-A Nashville.

He is expected to split time at the position with Logan Forsythe, who will start against the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday.

Guzman left the Rangers' 5-1 loss to the Angels on Saturday after experiencing tightness in his right hamstring while running out a double in the third inning.

"I've never had problems with the right leg. It's very rare," Guzman said.

"When things are going to happen, they are going to happen. You can't control that. I don't know what happened, but I just got to get healthy."

Guzman started the first eight games of the season at first base for the Rangers and was hitting .231 with two home runs and four RBIs.

Wisdom was acquired from St. Louis in a trade in December.

He played in 32 games for the Cardinals last season, hitting .260 with four home runs and 10 RBIs.
