Guyer joins Rays, acknowledges Bush case was distraction
OF Brandon Guyer joined the Rays today and said he couldn't say much on Matt Bush case but acknowledged issue affected his early season play at Triple-A. Bush was driving Guyer's truck in the March 22 DUI accident, and the victim's family has sued both Bush and Guyer for $5-million each.
"I was just letting too many things get to my head, and was not playing like the way I do,'' Guyer said. "It definitely affected me. Once I got over that and got better mentally everything started coming back into place.''
As for the lawsuit, Guyer said: "I can't really say much right now, I'm just trying to focus on baseball and let that stuff work out.''
He said he has not talked to Bush since the accident.
