Dee Gordon ahead of Alex Guerrero for starting job?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) MLB.com Dodgers beat writer Ken Gurnick seems to think Dee Gordon has the inside track to be the primary second baseman for Los Angeles to begin the season.

Alex Guerrero smacks grand slam Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2014) Dodgers second baseman Alex Guerrero went 1 for 2 with a grand slam in his team's win over the Reds Wednesday.

Alex Guerrero likely to start season in minors


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2014) Dodgers infielder Alex Guerrero will likely begin the season in the minors, according to MLB.com.

Guerrero hasn't been starting at second base during spring, and it's unlikely he'll open the season as the team's starter. Dee Gordon appears to be the likely candidate at the position. Guerrero signed with the club during the offseason.


Report: Dee Gordon emerging as frontrunner for 2B


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2014) Though the have only played four spring training games so far, the Dodgers may already have a favorite in the battle for the second base job. According to ESPN.com Saturday, the "consensus" in Dodgers' camp is that Dee Gordon is the frontrunner for the job, which would leave Alex Guerrero slated for a trip to the minors.

Gordon is just 1 for 7 in his first four appearances of the spring, but does have three stolen bases and two runs scored. Guerrero is 3 for 11 but all of his hits have been singles, and he has yet to walk while striking out three times. 


Alex Guerrero slated for heavy work in exhibition play


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) Don Mattingly is planning on seeing plenty of Dodgers top prospect Alex Guerrero in game action this spring, according to the Orange County Register. He will be playing second base or designated hitter in nearly every exhibition game.

"I think we'll see him [play] better and better," said Mattingly, who placed Guerrero in the DH spot for the Thursday game against Arizona.

The 27-year-old Cuban import is considered the top contender in the battle for the starting spot at second base.


Alex Guerrero goes hitless in spring debut


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2014) Making his spring debut stateside, Dodgers second baseman Alex Guerrero went 0 for 2 and struck out once in his team's 4-1 Cactus League loss to the Diamondbacks Wednesday.

Guerrero also turned a smooth double play with shortstop Chone Figgins. The team isn't going to base his future off a few spring-training at-bats.

"He looked better at the plate his second at-bat," manager Don Mattingly said. "It's his first Spring Training game. We're actually not judging off one game or two at-bats. I'm happy with what I saw. We're seeing a guy who hasn't played a while. We'll see what he looks like after a few games. We're not pulling the trigger in this short a time."

Guerrero, who sat out last season before leaving Cuba, is likely to serve as the team's starter at second base this season.


Dodgers manager thinking about platoon at second base


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2014) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said he could go with a platoon situation at second base to begin the season, while the team continues to evaluate newcomer Alex Guerrero.

"Yeah, we’d think about it," Mattingly said, per The Orange County Register. "Sure. I like platoons, honestly. It gets you a good matchup for the most part, with the right-lefts if you have the right guys for it. To me, it keeps both those guys involved so they’re better off the bench. I don’t mind that platoon system at all." 

Guerrero would likely be the right-handed half of the platoon. If the Dodgers go that path, then Dee Gordon, who is a left-handed hitter, and Chone Figgins, who bats from both sides of the plate, could be the front-runners to be part of the platoon. Miguel Rojas, Justin Turner and Justin Sellers are all right-handed hitters, but also in the mix at second base.

"If Alex is one of those guys, I think it would probably be good for him," Mattingly said. "You’re giving him a chance to play, hopefully getting him favorable matchups but also keeping him strong and rested as a guy that hasn’t played in a couple years. Eventually, if you think he’s an everyday guy that might not be the way to go. But I could see that being a possibility if he ends up being one of those guys."


Second base still a question mark for Dodgers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2014) Cuban acquisition Alex Guerrero is the preseason favorite to start at second base for the Dodgers, but Don Mattingly has set nothing in stone.

"That's just an area it's hard for us to say we can make a decision on that," he told the Orange County Register. "We have to take a look at the combination of guys - what guys look like in camp, could it be a platoon type situation, is one of those guys a utility-type player who can play a lot of second? I just think there's too many questions for us to be able to kind of say, 'I want an every-day guy' and force that."

Dee Gordon and Justin Sellers are also in the mix at that position.


Alexander Guerrero hoping to be Opening Day starter


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2014) Dodgers second baseman Alexander Guerrero is hoping to be the Opening Day starter, according to the Los Angeles Times

Guerrero came over from Cuba during the offseason. Guerreo played shortsop in Cuba, but the Dodgers want to use him at second base. Guerrero said he's worked hard during the offseason to make the transition to second. He's expected to be in competition for the job once camp opens. 


Three players vying for Dodgers' starting second-base job


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/8/2014) Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti said Wednesday the candidates for the starting second-base job this spring will be Alexander Guerrero, Miguel Rojas and Dee Gordon. Although, Colletti added Guerrero "is certainly leading the pack."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
