ALEXANDER GUERRERO RUMORS

Dodgers @ Pirates August 8, 2015: Scott Van Slyke, Cleanup Hitter

Every time I see Alex Guerrero try to play third base, or struggle to make contact, I always figure it’s the last time we’ll see him. But, I suppose Alberto Callaspo can’t play every single day, and Justin Turner is on the DL so… well, I really miss Juan Uribe, is all. Like, a lot. Dodgers Pirates 4:05 p.m. PT Pittsburgh, Pa.

Dodgers win Hector Olivera sweepstakes with $62.5 million deal

Signing Cuban infielders hasn’t worked out terribly well for the Dodgers in recent years, as neither Alexander Guerrero nor Erisbel Arruebarrena has developed as hoped. Perhaps the third time will be the charm. The Dodgers are obviously hoping so, banking $62.5 million on infielder Hector Olivera, winning the latest bidding for a Cuban import. According to MLB.com’s Jesse Sanchez...

Los Angeles Dodgers acquire Howie Kendrick

Andrew Heaney was a Los Angeles Dodger for like four hours. Dodgers GM Farhan Zaidi was intent on not letting me watch Sons of Anarchy tonight, flipping Heaney from the Marlins to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in exchange for second baseman Howie Kendrick.

Beckett & Maholm return in style, Guerrero needs sliding practice

The Dodgers tied today’s Spring Training bout against the Padres, 3-3, but it’s the Cactus League, so who cares? The main takeaway from today is that Josh Beckett certainly looked healthy in his quest to comeback from thoracic outlet syndrome. Beckett faced seven batters over his two-inning stint with three strikeouts and only one hit allowed. More than stats though, his mechanics...

Idle Observations from a Single Game of Alex Guerrero

The Los Angeles Dodgers signed Cuban emigre and infielder Alexander Guerrero this offseason, with a view (it would seem) to installing him at second base for the 2014 season. Because Guerrero didn’t participate in the most recent World Baseball Classic and because there’s little in the way of other extant footage of him and because […]

Guerrero OK with Mattingly's plan for 2B platoon

Cuban prospect Alexander Guerrero is comfortable with his manager saying a platoon at second base is a possibility. ''No problem,'' Guerrero said through an interpreter. ''It's fine as long as I'm continuing to work on making the adjustment.'' Guerrero, whom the Dodgers signed to a four-year, $28 million contract in October, is in camp trying to prove he can be the Dodgers' everyday...

Prospect Watch: Michael Young’s retirement opens the door for Alexander Guerrero

Cuban defector Alexander Guerrero arrives in the bigs with plenty of questions, but plenty of power potential, too. To the extent that you can call any 27 year old a prospect, Alexander Guerrero is one of the more interesting first year players on the radar this year. The new Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman, by way of a four year $28 million contract out of Cuba, has a reasonable...

Dodgers might need a 2B if Alexander Guerrero isn't ready by opening day

Alexander Guerrero was signed to be the Dodgers' everyday second baseman, but he hasn't looked like that so far this winter. Not because of poor performance -- he's hitting .289/.325/.447 -- but because he hasn't played that much (40 plate appearances).Guerrero, 27,  suffered a hamstring injury in early November, sat out nearly three weeks, came back and seemed to reaggravate the...
