Agent Scott Boras said Alex Guerrero is progressing following surgery to reattach a large portion of his ear.

"We're still not out of the woods. But we're optimistic. The doctor gave a good report [on Thursday]," Boras told CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman. There won't be any timetable for Guerrero's return until the Dodgers know whether the ear has healed correctly. According to Boras, Guerrero has yet to decide whether to press charges against Miguel Olivo, who bit his ear in an incident in Triple-A on May 20.

Danny Knobler of ESPNLosAngeles.com reports that Alex Guerrero (ear) could miss five weeks of action.

Guerrero had to undergo plastic surgery after having part of his ear bitten off by Triple-A Albuquerque teammate Miguel Olivo during an altercation Tuesday. The Cuban defector is hitting .368/.411/.737 with 10 homers and 29 RBI in 32 games this season at Albuquerque, but obviously he won't be a candidate for a promotion for a while.

Agent Scott Boras told FOX Sports' Jon Morosi that Alex Guerrero's ear was "displaced by a bite" during an altercation with Triple-A Albuquerque teammate Miguel Olivo.

Well then. It's not clear what caused the incident, but Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti said Tuesday that the club is looking into it. Guerrero is undergoing plastic surgery on his ear and it's not clear how long he'll be sidelined. The Cuban defector is hitting .368/.411/.737 with 10 homers and 29 RBI in 32 games this season at Albuquerque.
May 20 - 6:44 PM

Dodgers prospect 2B Alex Guerrero went 4-for-5 with two home runs, a double and two RBI on Sunday for Triple-A Albuquerque.

Guerrero's monster game capped an impressive weekend series for the 27-year-old, as he went 9-for-18 with five homers and seven RBI in four games against Fresno. The Cuban second baseman has been hitting up a storm at Triple-A this season, with a .355/.403/.691 batting line, 17 extra-base hits and 25 RBI through 31 games. However, he's likely to remain in the minor leagues until the organization is confident in his defense at the keystone or needs additional depth at the highest level.
May 19 - 9:00 PM

Dodgers second base prospect Alex Guerrero went 2-for-4 with a home run, bringing his season line to .327/.403/.618 for Triple-A Albuquerque.

He's cooled down since his electrifying start, but he's quietly putting up a solid season, and has three doubles, two triples, and three home runs. More impressively, he has five walks and four strikeouts in 62 plate appearances for the season. With Dee Gordon's hitting .344/.375/.478 with a league-leading 13 stolen bases, Guerrero will not be promoted any time soon, but he could get a promotion in the event of an injury.
May 1 - 9:20 AM

Dodgers second base prospect Alex Guerrero is batting .467/.568/.900 with two homers in his first nine games at Triple-A Albuquerque.

Guerrero missed some action with a strained oblique but has made up for lost time. While the great start at the dish is nice to see, manager Don Mattingly indicated that Guerrero still needs to work on his defense before being considered for a promotion. "That kind of stuff doesn't happen overnight," he said. "Eight games, you're not going to see much difference in that amount of time."
Apr 22 - 10:23 PM

Dodgers prospect 2B Alex Guerrero made his regular-season debut on Sunday, going 3-for-4 with a double and home run for Triple-A Albuquerque.

Guerrero, 27, had been sidelined since the end of spring training with an oblique injury, but was finally cleared to return to game action over the weekend. After signing a four-year, $28 million contract over the winter, Guerrero showcased his offensive potential this spring by batting .300/.400/.500 with three extra-base hits and nine RBI in 17 games. He's expected to join the Dodgers at some point this season once the organization is confident he can handle second base defensively in the major leagues.

Alex Guerrero is recovered from his oblique injury.

Guerrero strained his oblique on one of the final days of spring training. He'll continue working on his second base defense at Triple-A Albuquerque and should be ready to join the Dodgers early this summer. Los Angeles signed him to a four-year, $28 million free agent contract last year.
Apr 12 - 5:53 PM

Alex Guerrero will be out of action for at least a week after suffering a pulled side muscle Wednesday.

It's not clear how the injury happened. Guerrero was optioned to Triple-A earlier this week, so he'll be playing at Albuquerque once he is healthy. Dee Gordon and Justin Turner are handling second base for the Dodgers.
Mar 27 - 7:11 PM

Dodgers optioned INF Alex Guerrero to Triple-A Albuquerque.

An expected move with Carl Crawford coming off the paternity leave list. The Dodgers want Guerrero to get more comfortable defensively at second base in a less-pressurized setting, but it shouldn't be long before we see him in the majors. Dee Gordon and Justin Turner will attempt to hold things down in the big leagues for now.
Mar 25 - 2:55 PM

Alex Guerrero is on the active roster for the Dodgers season opening series against the Diamondbacks in Australia.

The Cuban infielder will serve as an extra bat on the bench for the two game series, then is expected to report to Triple-A to work on his defense when the team arrives back in the states.
Mar 21 - 11:50 PM

Alex Guerrero only had one at-bat in Friday's Cactus League contest against the Cubs, but made the most of it with a two-run double.

After his two-bagger, the 27-year-old was promptly picked off second base. He's now hitting .286 and has driven in eight runs this spring, and is making a push to begin the season as the Dodgers everyday second baseman.
Mar 14 - 11:17 PM

Alex Guerrero hit a grand slam off Jeff Francis in Wednesday's game against the Reds.

The 27-year-old also struck out in his only other at-bat of the night. Amidst talk that he'll likely begin the season in Triple-A, Guerrero showed why the Dodgers were willing to give him a four-year, $28 million contract this offseason. His defense is the reason he could potentially be left off the Opening Day roster, but if he has a strong spring with the bat he could make it a difficult decision for the Dodgers.
