Cuban 2B-SS Alex Guerrero seeks 4-year deal. a few interested teams prefer longer. LAD SFG TEX BOS CIN etc like him— Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) October 9, 2013
Heyman says the Dodgers, Giants, Rangers, Red Sox and Red are interested in the services of the 26-year old. Guerrero and the Dodgers were close to agreement on a five-year deal for $32M, but the deal fell apart for unknown reasons. At the time, Guerrero also changed his representation to Scott Boras. He is now looking for a better deal than the one that he received from the Dodgers.
Although Guerrero played mostly shortstop in Cuba, scouts expect the Cuban to move across to second base for defensive purposes. He hit .290 with 21 home runs in 328 plate appearances in his last season in Cuba. Guerrero isn't a premier talent, but posses a lot of raw power.
Guerrero was disappointed in not being named to the final roster for the 2013 World Baseball Classic.
