Dodgers not ready to change pecking order, despite Guerrero's fast start


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Dodgers utiliyty man Alex Guerrero belted a two-run, pinch-hit home run off Mariners starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma during the fourth inning of Tuesday's 6-5 victory over Seattle.

Guerrero has been a pleasant surprise for the Dodgers, competing for playing time while Juan Uribe struggles at the plate. However, manager Don Mattingly told reporters following the game that the pecking order has not changed despite Guerrero's fast start (.417/.385/1.000).

"Nothing's changed for us," Mattingly said, per the Orange County Register. "When we started (the season), we thought (Guerrero would get playing time at) third base, left field. We're going to work him today in the outfield. The way he's swinging the bat – that's not really a surprise for us. It's been a nice surprise the way he's looked at third. The way he's looked in the outfield has been a nice surprise. For us, it's just a matter of us using our whole roster.

"It's a lot like JT (Turner). We know JT can hit and we know there are going to be plenty of at-bats over the course of the season and we're going to need everyone."


Dodgers' Juan Uribe, Justin Turner remain out of lineup Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Dodgers infielders Juan Uribe (hamstring) and Justin Turner (finger) are not in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Mariners.

With both players still dealing with injury, Alex Guerrero, who went 3 for 5 with one home run and four RBI Sunday, will get another start at third base and bat sixth against Mariners lefty James Paxton.

The Dodgers are also keeping shortstop Jimmy Rollins, catcher Yasmani Grandal and left fielder Carl Crawford out of the starting lineup Monday. Darwin Barney will play shortstop and bat leadoff, Scott Van Slyke will man left field and bat fifth and A.J. Ellis will be behind the plate and bat eighth.


Dodgers' Puig, Guerrero, Pederson all homer against Diamondbacks


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) The Dodgers got three home runs from their lineup in Sunday's 7-4 win over the Diamondbacks. 

Yasiel Puig, Alex Guerrero and Joc Pederson all hit home runs in the game. Puig hit a solo home run in the top of the fifth, Pederson hit a solo shot in the sixth and Guerrero hit a two-run home run in the ninth. 

Guerrero totaled four RBI in the game and now holds a .429 batting average. Puig is hitting .136 and Pederson is batting .286. 

''He's been hitting since all last spring, all last year — he can hit,'' Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said about Guerrero, via the Associated Press. ''Our biggest fear was defensively, how he looked last year, but he's been good all through spring.''


Dodgers INF Alex Guerrero to make first MLB start Sunday


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/12/2015) With the Dodgers dealing with nagging injuries to Justin Turner (hand) and Juan Uribe (hamstring), infielder Alex Guerrero will get his first major league start, at third base, Sunday against the Diamondbacks. 

Both Turner and Uribe are not in the Dodgers' starting lineup, turning third base over to the Cuban rookie. A second baseman by trade, Guerrero will shift across the diamond. He has one hit in 12 major-league at-bats, but hit .333 over three minor-league levels in 2014. 


Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe leaves with hamstring injury


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2015) Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe suffered a hamstring injury in Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks and was forced to leave, reports MLB.com.

Uribe injured himself trying to field a grounder at third and walked gingerly back to the dugout once the inning ended. Uribe is dealing with hamstring tightness and X-rays were negative, the team announced. He is considered day to day.

Alex Guerrero replaced him in the lineup in the next inning. It is unclear yet if Uribe will land on the DL, reports the Orange County Register.

"There's no reason to get into that," Mattingly said. "Juan will come in tomorrow. We'll see where he's at. It could be a thing that's just a couple days. We'll see about that tomorrow."

Dodgers' Alex Guerrero willing to play third base


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Dodgers infielder Alex Guerrero has been willing to learn third this spring, according to MLB.com.

Guerrero is in a bit of a unique position. With Howie Kendrick entrenched at second, Guerrero doesn't really have a spot in the team's infield. Due to his contract, however, the team can't just send him to the minors. Guerrero can block the move, and has already said he plans to do so if the team tries to send him down. If he can play third well, that may not be a problem.

For what it's worth, manager Don Mattingly believes Guerrero has looked better this spring. "I really do think the second year [in camp] he looks a lot different as far as being relaxed," Mattingly said. "He's swinging the bat well and he keeps improving."

The 28-year-old hit .333/.371/.621 over three minor-league levels last season.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

"The team does not know what they are going to do, but all I can control is keep working hard and they will get the final word," Guerrero said. "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. I think that's what every player wants. You want to be in the Major Leagues and play as much as you can.

Guerrero only appeared in 11 games with Los Angeles in 2014, getting one hit in 13 at-bats.

"I just want to keep working hard and let my work speak for me," Guerrero continued. "I'm just being told to keep working hard and I feel like I'm getting better every day."
