Update: 

• INF Cristian Guzman To Rangers for RHP's Tanner Roark and Ryan Tatusko.

One of the original Washington Nationals in 2005, and one of the first free agents to choose the nation's capital as a destination, infielder Cristian Guzman's tenure with the Nats' ended this afternoon when, according to MLB.com's Bill Ladson, he was traded to the Texas Rangers in return for prospects who have yet to be identified. The Guzzzzzzz is gone...what's next....

Guzman, who is in the last year of a 2-year/$16M dollar deal signed back when Jim Bowden was the Nats' GM, was thought to be untradeable at the beginning of the season because of the high price tag, and there's no word yet on who will be responsible for the remainder of his contract or what the Nats will receive in return...
