The Chunichi Dragons of the Nippon Professional Baseball league in Japan announced Saturday that they've signed Alex Guerrero to a one-year, $1.3 million contract.
There were rumblings late Friday that the two sides were close to an agreement. The Dodgers are still on the hook for $5 million of the $28 million contract that Guerrero signed with the club in 2013. The 30-year-old appeared in just 117 games for the Dodgers, slashing .224/.251/.414 with 11 homers, 36 RBI and a 63/17 K/BB ratio in 243 plate appearances. Nov 26 - 1:16 PM

According to Sanspo, Alex Guerrero is close to a contract agreement with the Chunichi Dragons of the Nippon Professional Baseball League in Japan.

Guerrero was a colossal bust for the Dodgers after signing a $28 million contract when he came over from Cuba in 2013. He missed most of the 2016 season with a knee injury before being released by the Dodgers in early June. With a strong showing in Japan, he could conceivably rebuild his value an earn a better opportunity stateside.
Nov 25 - 9:25 PM

Dodgers released INF/OF Alex Guerrero.

No huge surprise here. The Dodgers placed Guerrero on waivers at the end of May and he passed through unclaimed. He signed a $28 million deal coming over from Cuba in 2013, but holds an uninspiring .224/.251/.414 triple-slash in 219 major league at-bats. Prior to Wednesday's release, the 29-year-old had not seen a plate appearance with the Dodgers this season.
Jun 8 - 4:56 PM

Dodgers designated INF/OF Alex Guerrero for assignment.

Guerrero's 20-day minor league rehab assignment came to an end Sunday and the Dodgers don't currently have a spot for the 29-year-old on their major league roster, so they decided to go ahead and cut him loose. Guerrero, signed to a $28 million deal out of Cuba in 2013, was 9-for-66 (.136) in 16 games this season between High-A Rancho Cucamonga, Double-A Tulsa, and Triple-A Oklahoma City. He'll probably be officially released within the next 10 days, after he clears waivers.
May 31 - 7:15 PM

Alex Guerrero (knee) notched his first hit at the Double-A level on Tuesday night.

Guerrero is now 1-for-24 since moving his rehab assignment from High-A Rancho Cucamonga to Double-A Tulsa. There's no rush from the Dodgers to fit him on the active major league roster, but it will have to happen by next Monday. He can't be optioned.
May 24 - 11:57 PM

Alex Guerrero (knee) went 0-for-4 as the DH at Double-A Tulsa on Sunday.

Guerrero is hitless in 20 at-bats since moving his rehab assignment from High-A Rancho Cucamonga to Double-A Tulsa last Tuesday and he's slashing .152/.188/.239 in 46 rehab at-bats overall. It's not clear how the Dodgers are going to handle this situation. Guerrero isn't producing in the minors, doesn't really fit on the active major league roster, and yet can't be optioned. They have another week to decide.
May 23 - 9:12 AM

Alex Guerrero (knee) will have his minor league rehab assignment transferred to Double-A Tulsa on Tuesday.

Guerrero, who has been out since the spring with a left knee injury, batted .269 (7-for-26) with one home run and one double over six games with High-A Rancho Cucamonga. The Dodgers are expected to keep him on a rehab assignment for the full 21 days. The club attempted to trade him over the winter and there's no clear fit for him on the active roster. Guerrero is under contract for $5 million this season and $7 million in 2017. He can't be optioned to the minors without his approval and can opt for free agency after any season in which he's traded. It's a tough spot.
May 17 - 9:00 AM

Alex Guerrero (knee) is set to begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

Guerrero is finally ready for minor league games after needing close to six weeks to heal a knee bruise. The Cuban utilityman is probably going to be asked to play in at least 10 rehab games in order to get comfortable at different positions and get his timing right at the plate. We'll see him in late May.
May 10 - 5:25 PM

Alex Guerrero (knee) is slated to begin playing in extended spring training games next week.

Guerrero suffered a bruised knee in spring training and has been very slow to progress. It appears that he's finally making tangible progress toward a return, though there's still no clear estimate for when he may rejoin the big league club.
Apr 29 - 9:32 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he has "no idea" about the status of Alex Guerrero (knee).

He hasn't played yet this year after bruising his knee in spring training. The Dodgers are caught between a rock and a hard place with Guerrero, who doesn't fit on the major league roster but can't be sent to the minors without his consent. "He's still in Glendale, I guess rehabbing," said Roberts. "You would think he's getting better." It doesn't sound like the Dodgers are in any rush to activate him.
Apr 26 - 12:18 PM

Alex Guerrero (knee) has not been cleared for baseball activities.

It's unclear what exactly is bothering Guerrero, though we know it's something with his left knee. An MRI taken in late March showed "minimal damage," per a report from Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. There is obviously no current timetable for Guerrero's activation off the disabled list.
Apr 7 - 2:46 PM

Dodgers placed 3B/OF Alex Guerrero on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his left knee.

Guerrero's knee injury is considered minor, but he's not ready to play yet. Even when he's healthy enough, there's not much of a role for him with the Dodgers.
Apr 3 - 12:57 PM

Alex Guerrero will begin the season on the disabled list after an MRI showed "minimal damage" to his left knee, according to Dodgers manager Dave Roberts.

It sounds like it could have been much worse, but Guerrero will still need a stint on the DL. He's not going to have much of a role with the Dodgers even when healthy.
Mar 31 - 6:51 PM

Alex Guerrero hasn't appeared in a Cactus League game since Sunday because of knee soreness.

Guerrero sprained his left knee early in camp, returned briefly and then aggravated the injury in Sunday's game against San Diego. The Dodgers haven't given a timetable for Guerrero's return. So far, he's hit .238 with a pair of home runs in 21 Cactus League at-bats.

Alex Guerrero went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's loss to the White Sox.

It wasn't just any solo homer, as Guerrero took White Sox ace Chris Sale deep. It was his second home run of spring. Guerrero can't be send down without his permission, so he's safe, but a good performance in spring could earn him more playing time or possibly even get him traded to a better situation at some point.
