Ronald Guzman, the minor league first baseman for the Texas Rangers, was involved in a traffic accident in the Dominican Republic that resulted in a motorcyclist being killed.  Guzman was reportedly arrested and is being held.

Jorge Arangure has these updates on the situation:

Guzman, who was signed to a $3.45M bonus in 2011, and who spent this past season at low-A Hickory, was reportedly the driver in the accident.  Oscar Taveras, of course, was killed in a car accident in the Dominican Republic last month, which has cast more attention on the unsafe nature of the roads in the D.R.

We'll provide more information on this situation as it becomes available.
