GM Kevin Towers was interviewed during the team's broadcast today and mentioned that free agent Vladimir Guerrero will work out for the team sometime this week in the Dominican Republic (via Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic). Towers is headed to take a look at some amateur players with D-backs vice president of Latin operations, Junior Noboa. Noboa is good friends with Guerrero who suggested to Towers that he take a look at Guerrero. Guerrero who is towards the end of his career, didn't put a glove on all of last year as he spent time only at DH for the Orioles (and only 20 appearances in the field since 2009). Guerrero could help Arizona during Interleague play and fill the DH role for them. But the only problem is, the D-backs already have four outfielders who need playing time with the fourth outfielder Gerardo Parra having won a Gold Glove last season but lost his starting spot to Jason Kubel. Guerrero could also provide a legitimate power threat off the bench as a pinch hitter but probably would not be used as a defensive replacement. Last season, Guerrero hit .290/.317/.416 with 13 HR's  and 63 RBI's in 562 AB's for the Orioles in 2011. Image taken by Keith Allison and used under the Creative Common License Agreement.
