Before the season began, during Spring Training, Guerrero injured his left knee and has been carrying soreness ever since which saw him start the season on the 15 day DL, a place he finds himself today.
When Alex was ready to return to the ball club the Dodgers placed him on a rehab assignment with High-A Rancho Cucamonga hitting only .269 with 7 for 26. This is about where he should be in the majors if he follows expectations but in A+ someone of major league standard should be nearing .300 if not there.
The front office in LA thought it would be beneficial for him to be promoted to AA Tulsa where he has found himself now, the only problem with this is that he is hitting 1-30 in his 8 games with 5 strikeouts. He has found himself at both 3B and LF, this hasn’t changed much for his offence however with his only hit coming 4 games ago, since then he is 0-12 with 2 K’s.
