ALEXANDER GUERRERO RUMORS

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...

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.

The new Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman, by way of a four year $28 million contract out of Cuba, has a reasonable...

Dee Gordon could get one final shot to be a valuable player with the Dodgers

Now, he's struggling to hang on as a utility player in the majors.With Alexander Guerrero's injury concerns in the Dominican Winter League, perhaps Gordon gets one more shot as a starter in the majors -- at second base with the...

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...
