A little over a year after the Dodgers signed Cuban defector Yasiel Puig. After what seems to be a great payout. They turned around and signed 27 year old Cuban infielder Alexander Guerrero. Guerrero was the top infield prospect out of Cuba. He shows great power at the plate but his struggle comes in the field Guerrero's arm is a little week for the Shortstop position he was scouted for so the Dodgers are expected to move him over to second base. The Dodgers do own a 2014 option on Ellis their current 2B. Guerrero was signed to a 4 year $28M contract that will take him into his 30s. Guerrero turns 27 in December.
