“Ever since surgery, my goal was to be good for Opening Day, but once I had that setback and stuff, I said, ‘I want Opening Day, but I just want to be healthy for the majority of the season. That’s still the focus and mindset, but now that we’re getting closer to Opening Day, I’m getting that itch, I want to be on it and be ready. We’ll see what happens.”

Guyer also added:

“I’ve knocked the rust off a little bit. But just to get called up and get in a big-league game, it feels good. Just keep going, keep grinding and see where we go from here.”
