Dodgers News And Rumors: Dodgers Sign Cuban IF Alexander Guerrero

The Dodgers made great strides this year and that was due to great contributions from Yasiel Puig and Hyun-Jin Ryu, both rookies who had never played baseball in the United States. The Dodgers now have to look to improve their roster for next season and this morning they signed Alexander Guerrero to a four-year deal worth $28 million.

Guerrero will look to be the second international prospect from Cuba to make an immediate impact for the Dodgers. Like Ryu, he’s said to be able to play in big leagues right away and will more than likely replace Mark Ellis at second base next year. Ellis’ contract has a 5.75 million dollar team option, but it remains unclear whether the Dodgers will retain him.

The Dodgers worked out Guerrero at the their Dominican Republic complex and they weren’t the only ones in pursuit of his services as the Red Sox, Giants, and Rangers were also in the mix for the 26-year-old. Recently, the Dodgers revamped their international scouting and last year was a testament to their effort of finding talent outside the states.

The Dodgers wanted to get younger and get more offensive production from their second baseman and Guerrero seems to fill those needs for them. Guerrero is said to have a powerful bat and good speed as his agent Scott Boras compared his power to Dan Uggla.
