Alex Guerrero has already caused some spark and controversy among the Dodgers ranks as he has said, with no option years left and that it would be up to him if he goes down to AAA where he hit .329 in 65 games, with 80 hits and 15 home runs. He has already said no, he would stay in the majors regardless of what the club wants from him.
Perhaps he doesn’t have to though; already this year is Spring Training Guerrero has been on fire, second best on the club for averages and equal most hits with Scott Schebler, who will be in the minors this year barring some amazing circumstances.
There was one at bat today I would like to highlight in Guerrero’s progress. As there is no doubt he is age ready, being 29 years old, he has been around a baseball field for some time. Last year however in my mind there was doubt surrounding his pitch selection of what he is hitting or looking for was strong but today that changed. In 13 at bats last year he struck out 6 times and only managed one hit in the majors, a terrible record for anyone, this was all down to pitch selection.
