Alex Guerrero singled and hit a solo home run in four trips to the plate in Saturday's Cactus League game with the Angels.
Guerrero might've had two if Mike Trout had not robbed him of a blast to center field in the first inning. He succeeded in taking Matt Shoemaker deep in the third inning, again to center field. The 28-year-old has impressed this spring, hitting .368 (14-for-38) with three home runs and eight RBI. Guerrero, who made his major league debut last season, will eventually succeed Juan Uribe at third base. Mar 28 - 7:20 PM

Alex Guerrero went 1-for-3 with a stolen base as the Dodgers fell to the Indians in Cactus League play on Sunday.

More importantly than his performance though, is that he capably handled third base defensively and is proving that he could be an option for the Dodgers at that position. While they are currently entrusting the hot corner to 36-year-old Juan Uribe, Guerrero could wind up being a better option. He's having a terrific spring, hitting .344/.364/.531 with a pair of homers and seven RBI in 32 at-bats.

Alex Guerrero was held out of action Monday in Dodgers camp due to discomfort in his hand.

Guerrero is expected to be fine by Tuesday. The 28-year-old infielder told's Jesse Sanchez earlier this month that he has no intention of returning to the minor leagues, and his four-year, $28 million contract with the Dodgers gives him the power to veto any demotion. It's not clear what his role is going to be in 2015.

Alex Guerrero indicated in an interview with Jesse Sanchez of that he has no intention of returning the minor leagues.

The 28-year-old stated, "I don't want to go down. I'm not going down. I feel like I can get better here at this level and play every day." Guerrero signed a four-year, $28 million deal with the Dodgers before the 2014 season that included a clause that he can't be optioned to the minor leagues without his permission after his first season. That means the Dodgers will be forced to keep him on the roster in a reserve role, trade him elsewhere or release him.

Dodgers recalled INF Alex Guerrero from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Guerrero, who signed a four-year, $28 million contract with the Dodgers over the winter, hit .329/.364/.613 with 15 home runs and 49 RBI over 65 games in Triple-A this season. He likely would have been in the majors sooner if it wasn't for the ear-biting incident with teammate Miguel Olivo back in May. Look for him to serve in a utility role down the stretch.

Dodgers prospect second base prospect Alex Guerrero went 4-for-6 with a double and a triple for Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday.

Guerrero has been hot, and is now hitting .329/.365/.594 over 59-injury interrupted games in Triple-A. He will be promoted to the major leagues in September, and has been playing some third base, some shortstop, and some left field over the past few weeks in order to prepare for a utility role down the stretch.

Dodgers second base prospect Alex Guerrero went 2-for-4 with a double for Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday.

Guerrero is hitting .258/.292/.339 over 16 games since his return from his ear injury while spending most of his time at second base. He has also spent time at third base (one game) and left field (four full games, parts of two others). His long-term role is muddled as he is not a major league shortstop and Dee Gordon seems to have second base locked down in LA.

Alex Guerrero (ear) has rejoined Triple-A Albuquerque.

Guerrero missed two months after Miguel Olivo bit off a chunk of his ear during a scuffle in the Albuquerque dugout in late May. The Cuban infielder has been a force offensively when healthy and still has a good chance to make his major league debut in August.

He played second base on Sunday at Rancho Cucamonga but saw time at both shortstop and third base in the AZL. The Cuban infielder is rehabbing from surgery to reattach a large portion of his ear that was bit off in May during a fight with Miguel Olivo. Guerrero could make his major league debut sometime in August.

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'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 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.

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.

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.
