Cristian Guzman's agent says the infielder has given his OK to be traded to the Texas Rangers by the Washington Nationals.
Agent Stanley King says in a telephone interview Friday that
Guzman has "been made aware" of - and given approval for - the
deal sending him to the AL West leaders.
Players with at least 10 years of major league service,
including five consecutive years with their current club, cannot be
traded without their consent. Guzman made his debut in the majors
with Minnesota in 1999 and joined the Nationals in 2005.
Nationals manager Jim Riggleman says the team will not make an
announcement about Guzman until Saturday.
