Cuban Infielder “Up For Grabs”
Cuban infielder Alexander Guerrero again is a free agent after apparently coming close to signing a deal with the Dodgers, and it is believed that the Red Sox, Reds, Rangers and Giants are among other teams that may have some interest.
The Braves were considered another potential suitor for Guerrero, but it’s hard to know for sure as this case already has taken one very strong.
Now Guerrero has switched agents and is being represented by Scott Boras, and all parties involved agree that Guerrero remains a free agent, able to sign with any of the 30 clubs.
Guerrero’s fee agency could have some effect on free-agent-to-be Robinson Cano since the big-market, bigger-spending Dodgers have been speculated by some to be a possible suitor for the Yankees’ star second baseman, though there’s been no confirmation or even evidence yet that the Dodgers definitely definitely make a play for Cano.
Dodgers GM Ned Colletti declined to comment on the Guerrero situation, citing policy not to discuss player negotiations. It remains a mystery exactly what happened to the first deal.
