The Dodgers have been rumored to have landed Cuban infielder Alexander Guerrero in the past, but it was never made official. Now, Guerrero has hired super agent Scott Boras to represent him and he says Guerrero could sign with an MLB team soon after opening the negotiations to every team.
According to Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times, the Dodgers are in the running for Guerrero and they might know sooner rather than later if they landed the talented second basemen:
The Dodgers had him work out at their complex five or six times, Boras said. There are four or five other teams that have seen him five or six times.
With the emergence and success of Yasiel Puig, the Dodgers and other teams have taken notice of international talent. Guerrero is said to have great power for a second basemen and is ready to play right away in the major leagues. The Dodgers would love to add another Cuban star to pair him with Puig in LA.
