Alex Guerrero hit a two-run homer in Sunday's big loss to the Padres.

Guerrero smacked his homer off of James Shields in the seventh inning, drawing the Padres to within 10-3. There was no epic comeback in the works, though, and the homer worked merely to pad Guerrero's stats. Not that they need much padding. With a .300/.329/.638 slash line, plus seven homers and 18 RBI in just 80 at-bats, Guerrero has taken advantage of limiting playing time to put up productive numbers.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Tuesday that he doesn't have a set starter at third base.

"I don’t like saying that," Mattingly said when asked if it was an open position. "But, yeah, third base this year has been a little bit like the outfield last year, trying to figure out that spot." Mattingly committed to former starter Juan Uribe earlier in the season, but he simply could no longer ignore Alex Guerrero and Justin Turner offering much better production at the plate. Guerrero has started three out of the last four games at the hot corner and is the best bet to receive the lion's share of the playing time there going forward. He boasts a .353/.393/.784 batting line with six homers over 51 at-bats this season.

Alex Guerrero had a double and two RBI in a 3-for-5 effort as the Dodgers easily beat the Marlins on Tuesday.

Guerrero doubled in a run to start a four-run fifth inning, then added an RBI single in what became a five-run sixth inning. The Dodgers have more talented players than positions on the diamond, so it's been tough for them to give Guerrero everyday playing time. He's batting .353/.393/.784 with six home runs and 16 RBI in only 56 plate appearances.

Alex Guerrero hit a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Brewers.

Guerrero launched the 422-foot home run off of Mike Fiers in the second inning. It would be his only hit of the game, as he finished 1-for-2 with a walk. Guerrero's now up to .342/.395/.868 over 38 at-bats, with six home runs and 14 RBI. He doesn't get a ton of playing time (this was just his ninth start of the season), but when he steps into the box, he produces.
May 7 - 6:23 PM

Alex Guerrero is starting in left field and batting fifth for the Dodgers on Thursday.

It's only his second time batting fifth. He had either been sixth, seventh, or eighth in his other seven starts. Guerrero boasts a 1.165 OPS with five home runs and 13 RBI in 17 games (eight total starts) this season.
May 7 - 10:40 AM

Alex Guerrero is starting in left field and batting eighth on Tuesday night against the Brewers.

Justin Turner will start at third base and Juan Uribe will be on the bench. Guerrero, 28, is batting .364/.389/.879 with five home runs and 13 RBI in 16 games (only four starts) this season. He was named the National League Rookie of the Month for April.
May 5 - 4:43 PM

Alex Guerrero is in the Dodgers starting lineup for Friday's contest against the Diamondbacks.

He'll draw the start in left field and will bat eighth against opposing right-hander Rubby De La Rosa. With Yasiel Puig and Carl Crawford both on the shelf, Guerrero should be able to find his way into the lineup on most nights and makes for a very attractive option in daily leagues.
May 1 - 6:15 PM

Alex Guerrero clubbed his fourth home run of the season in a losing effort versus the Giants on Thursday.

Guerrero broke a scoreless tie in the second inning with a solo shot off of Ryan Vogelsong. The 28-year-old got a rare start and went 2-for-3. With only 20 plate appearances under his belt, Guerrero already has four home runs, a pair of doubles, and 12 RBI.
Apr 23 - 7:33 PM

Alex Guerrero is starting at third base and batting seventh Thursday against the Giants.

It's his reward for slugging a pinch-hit two-run homer off Madison Bumgarner on Wednesday night. Guerrero has three home runs and 11 RBI in just 17 plate appearances this season and should continue to challenge Juan Uribe for starts at the hot corner.
Apr 23 - 12:33 PM

Alex Guerrero launched a pinch-hit, two-run home run off of Madison Bumgarner in the seventh inning of Wednesday's 3-2 loss.

Guerrero's been quite the man for dramatics in the early part of the season. In addition to his big homer against Bumgarner, he also notched a walk-off RBI single in the 10th inning of an April 14 contest against the Mariners. Wednesday's home run was Guerrero's third of the season and the RBI his 11th. He doesn't see regular at-bats with the Dodgers, but like fellow bench-mate Scott Van Slyke, he's made the most of his plate appearances. He now has seven hits in 16 AB's
Apr 23 - 2:33 AM

Alex Guerrero's RBI single sent the Dodgers home winners in the 10th inning Monday versus the Mariners.

Guerrero had been 0-for-3 with a sacrifice fly coming into the at-bat. With the bases loaded in the 10th inning, Guerrero worked the count to 2-2 against lefty Dominic Leone, who had mostly been throwing breaking balls. Leone served up a fastball, which Guerrero promptly laced into right-center for the walk-off win. Guerrero has only played in three games so far, but he's hit well, notching four hits and six RBI in 11 at-bats.
Apr 14 - 1:16 AM

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.
Mar 22 - 9:16 PM

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.
