With surplus of third basemen, Dodgers could look to trade Uribe


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/15/2015) Would the Dodgers consider shopping third baseman Juan Uribe? It may not be out of the question, once new Cuban-import Hector Olivera passes his upcoming physical and finalizes his contract. With Olivera on board, the Dodgers will have a surplus of quality third basemen, with the aformentioned Olivera and Uribe, along with Justin Turner and Alex Guerrero.

As CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman notes, Guerrero can opt-out of his current contract at the end of the season if he is dealt, making a deal unlikely. The Dodgers would like to hang on to Turner thanks to his versatility. So of the quartet, Urbie seems the likliest to be dealt (that's if the Dodgers decide to make any deals).

Uribe, who is batting .247 in a part-time role in 2015, is scheduled to be a free agent after the season, so any team looking for a short-term piece at third base could look to the Dodgers for a possible fit. 


Dodgers' Juan Urbe in lineup Thursday vs. Rockies


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe is in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Rockies.

Uribe will be making his first start since facing the Rockies in Colorado Friday. He has hit .257/.293/.329 with one home run and six RBI in 70 at-bats.

With Uribe and left fielder Scott Van Slyke in the lineup, Alex Guerrero is coming off the bench Thursday.

The Dodgers are heavy favorites (-210) at home Thursday, per VegasInsider.com.


Dodgers' Alex Guerrero knocks in two in lop-sided win on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/13/2015) Alex Guerrero continued his hot hitting in the Dodgers' 11-1 rout of the Marlins on Tuesday. Guerrero, who got the start at third base, went 3 for 5 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored. 

Guerrero was starting for the third time in the last four games, as manager Don Mattingly continues to find ways to get the rookie as much playing time as possible. 


Don Mattingly says strong play of Alex Guerrero complicates 3B mix


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly admitted Tuesday that the strong play of Alex Guerrero has complicated his plans for third base this season, according to MLB.com. 

Guerrero has split his time this season between third and left field, hitting .326 with six homers and 14 RBI in 46 at-bats. 

Juan Uribe (.261, 1 HR, 6 RBI) and Justin Turner (.309, 5 HR, 13 RBI) have also seen significant time at third for the Dodgers this season.


Juan Uribe misses third straight start for Dodgers


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe is out of the starting lineup for the third straight game. 

It's the second time this year that Uribe has missed three straight at third base. He also sat out April 11 through 13. 

Alex Guerrero gets the start at third for the second time in three games and the sixth time this season. He's batting fifth.


OF's Joc Pederson, Andre Ethier out of Dodgers' lineup Saturday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/9/2015) With Joc Pederson and Andre Ethier getting the day off Saturday, Chris Heisey, who was recalled from the minors on Thursday, and utilityman Enrique Hernandez get the call for the Dodgers in Colorado.

Heisey will leadoff and play center field while Hernandez gets the start in right field and will bat seventh.

INF/OF Alex Guerrero also gets a spot start Saturday, spelling Juan Uribe at third base and hitting fifth.

Dodgers OF Alex Guerrero ends 1-for-14 slump with sixth HR


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2015) Dodgers left fielder Alex Guerrero homered for the first time in seven games during a 14-4 win at Milwaukee on Thursday. He connected for a solo home run off Mike Fiers leading off the second inning, which tied the game at 1. 

Gonzalez went 1 for 2 with one walk and two runs before being lifted in a double-switch. He was also hit by a pitch on the foot in the seventh inning.

Guerrero entered play Thursday mired in a 1-for-14 slump in his previous six games (four starts).


Dodgers' Justin Turner, Alex Guerrero starting Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2015) Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner and left fielder Alex Guerrero are in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Brewers.

Turner is batting fifth while drawing his first start in three games. Juan Uribe will head to the bench with Turner in the lineup.

Guerrero is batting eight and manning left field for the third time since Carl Crawford was placed on the disabled list. His presence in the lineup sends Scott Van Slyke to the bench.

The Dodgers are heavy road favorites (-165) Tuesday.


Scott Van Slyke gets start over Alex Guerrero for Dodgers


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2015) The Dodgers continued alternating left fielders. 

Since Carl Crawford went on the disabled list, Alex Guerrero has gotten three starts in left field and Scott Van Slyke, two. The two players have alternated days starting. 

Guerrero got the call on Sunday, so Van Slyke is listed as the Dodgers' left fielder in Monday's lineup. He'll hit fifth in the lineup. 

Guerrero is 0 for 9 in his three starts. Van Slyke is 2 for 8 in his two. 


Dodgers' Yasmani Grandal not in lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Grandal has started seven of the last eight games behind the plate but will cede catching duties to A.J. Eliis Sunday. Third baseman Juan Uribe is back in the lineup as expected, while Alex Guerrero is in left field for a second straight game but has been moved up to the fifth spot in the order after batting eighth Saturday. It's the first time this season Guerrero has slotted higher than sixth.

The Dodgers are favorites (-145) against the Diamondbacks Sunday, per VegasInsider.com.


Dodgers' Alex Guerrero starting in LF for Friday's game


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2015) Dodgers third baseman Alex Guerrero is starting in left field for Friday's game against the Diamondbacks, the team announced.

Guerrero is batting eighth and will go against Rubby De La Rosa, who he has never faced. Guerrero is batting .423 with five home runs and 13 RBI in 26 at-bats this season.

The Dodgers are the favorites (-150) at home against the Diamondbacks on Friday.


Uribe's days with Dodgers could be numbered when Olivera arrives


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2015) With Hector Olivera coming and red-hot Alex Guerrero already on the roster, Juan Uribe's days with the Dodgers may be numbered. According to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, Uribe may become available once Olivera arrives and is proven healthy. 

Olivera, who signed a six-year deal worth $62.5 million deal, could need Tommy John surgery to repair the elbow once he joins the club.

Uribe has been with the Dodgers since 2011 and is off to a solid start through 17 games, hitting .278 (15 for 54) with two doubles, one home run, four RBI and a .316 on-base percentage.


Torn oblique sends Dodgers OF Carl Crawford to the DL


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2015) Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford was placed on the 15-day disabled list prior to Tuesday's contest against San Francisco after MRI revealed a torn right oblique, according to the Los Angeles Times.

"It's a bad tear," Crawford said.

Crawford suffered the injury during Monday's game against the Giants. Manager Don Mattingly did not issue a concrete timetable for his return, but said he'd be surprised if his stint on the DL lasted only 15 days. He is hitting .245/.260/.408 with one home run, three RBI and one stolen base in 49 at-bats.

The team recalled Kike Hernandez from Triple-A, and will start in center field, while Alex Guerrero moved to left field in place of Crawford.


Dodgers' Mattingly: 'We're going to have to find at-bats for' Guerrero


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2015) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said after Monday's game that the team has to find more playing time for infielder/outfielder Alex Guerrero after the rookie's hot start, the Los Angeles Times reports.

"We're going to have to find at-bats for Alex the way he is swinging," Mattingly said.

Mattingly said that Guerrero could play at shortstop, third base and left field. He may start to see extended action in left field if Carl Crawford, who is dealing with an injury to his side, has to go on the disabled list. Guerrero is 11 for 22 with five home runs and 13 RBI in 11 appearances.


Dodgers' Howie Kendrick, Juan Uribe back in the lineup Monday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) Dodgers second baseman Howie Kendrick and third baseman Juan Uribe are back in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Giants, the team announced.

Kendrick was given Sunday off after playing in 17 consecutive games for Los Angeles. He is hitting .303 with three home runs and 12 RBI in 66 at-bats this season. Uribe is back in the lineup after getting Sunday off as well and is hitting .244 with three RBI in 44 at-bats.

Utility man Alex Guerrero is also out of the lineup Monday even though he's hitting .500 with five home runs and 13 RBI in 22 at-bats this season.

The Dodgers are currently the favorites (-150) against San Francisco.


Dodgers' Alex Guerrero hits homer in loss to Padres


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Dodgers infielder Alex Guerrero had another solid game from the plate in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Padres. 

Guerrero went 2 for 3 and hit a home run, his fifth of the season. It also increased his RBI total to 13 for the year. Guerrero now holds an impressive slash line of .500/.500/1.000. 

"The spurt I'm going through, I think it is impressive and I hope it impresses everybody and I want it to continue," Guerrero said.

Manager Don Mattingly likes what he's seen from the young player.

"There's a good chance you're going to see him out there," Mattingly said. "Obviously with Yasiel down, it changes some things. A guy swinging the bat, you're going to find a place to play him, that's just the way it is."

When Guerrero has had opportunities this year he's made the most of them. This was only his fourth start of the season and he was the only Dodger to record more than one hit. 


Dodgers could find more playing time for red-hot Alex Guerrero


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Dodgers infielder Alex Guerrero has gotten off to a fire-hot start this season, and the front office is starting to take note.

The 28-year-old Cuban is hitting .474 (9 for 19) with two doubles, four homers and 12 RBI in nine games (three starts). According to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, the Dodgers are starting to see him as passable option at third base and in left field, two spots where they're already strong.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Dodgers couldn't get any offense going in the first six innings, but Guerrero hit for starter Clayton Kershaw with a man on in the seventh and was able to tie the game with one swing. He has excelled in limited action, hitting .438/.412/.1.125 with three home runs and 11 RBI in just 16 at-bats.


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."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

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.

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

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."
