HOW ACQUIRED: Transferred from Saprissa on December 22, 2016.
Guzman is a technical player who is smart positionally and possesses mentality that is a great fit for connecting the Timbers' midfield and backline when the team is on defense. He had a solid first year in MLS and should figure into Portland's starting midfield again in 2018.
INTERNATIONAL: Guzman has earned 25 caps with the Costa Rica National Team since making his senior team debut in 2010, representing Costa Rica at the 2011 Copa America, the 2011, 2015, and 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cups and recent 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
OUTSIDE MLS: Has played 184 matches in the Costa Rican Primera Division, making 164 starts for Saprissa and Cartagines.
