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.

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.
Mar 26 - 10:50 PM

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.
Mar 19 - 7:07 PM

Alex Guerrero (knee) will DH on Monday.

There was also a plan to have him start at third base in morning "B" game at Dodgers camp, but that won't happen. It didn't make sense to push Guerrero like that after he missed the past week with a left knee injury. The utilityman should be 100 percent by Opening Day.
Mar 14 - 12:38 PM

Alex Guerrero (knee) will get an at-bat during Sunday's game.

Guerrero was scratched from Saturday's lineup but will appear as a pinch-hitter Sunday. He's been battling a minor left knee ailment for about a week but still has time to get up to speed prior to Opening Day.
Mar 13 - 1:57 PM

Alex Guerrero (knee) was scratched from Saturday's game against the Mariners.

Guerrero was slated to return as a DH on Saturday but ended up being a late scratch. A knee injury has kept him out of the lineup since March 4. It's unclear if Guerrero suffered a setback or if the Dodgers are simply erring on the side of caution. Shawn Zarraga is starting in Guerrero's place.
Mar 12 - 7:54 PM

Alex Guerrero (knee) has advanced to fielding drills.

Guerrero isn't ready for game action yet but he's getting closer. He hurt his knee sliding in Friday's game against Texas and has made steady progress since then. Guerrero is obviously in no danger of missing Opening Day.
Mar 9 - 12:28 PM

Alex Guerrero (knee) has resumed baseball activities.

As expected. Guerrero tweaked his left knee Friday in Dodgers camp and was held out of action over the weekend, but he's already back on the spring training grind. The utilityman should be 100 percent come Opening Day.
Mar 7 - 11:14 AM

Alex Guerrero (knee) will resume baseball activities on Monday.

Guerrero tweaked his left knee Friday and had to be scratched from Saturday's lineup. No tests were ordered and he's expected to be fine. Guerrero could wind up being traded by the Dodgers this month, as there doesn't look to be a role for him on the major league roster.
Mar 6 - 11:31 AM

No tests have been scheduled for Alex Guerrero's injured knee.

He tweaked his knee sliding Friday against Texas. Guerrero was slated to DH on Saturday but the Dodgers made him a late scratch. He's day-to-day.
Mar 5 - 6:41 PM

Alex Guerrero was scratched from the Dodgers starting lineup on Saturday due to left knee soreness.

He's being replaced in the Dodgers lineup by Shawn Zarraga. The injury doesn't sound serious, so expect Guerrero to return to action in a day or two. He seems as though his playing time is blocked by several players in Los Angeles, so he makes for an interesting trade candidate as spring moves on.
