Jon Heyman spoke with Scott Boras, agent to Dodgers infield prospect Alex Guerrero. Who most of you got to know via the awful attack he experienced from Miguel Olivo, who bit off a chunk of his ear. Heyman reports that Guerrero, while still under medical care at UCLA, is doing better:
Dodgers prospect Alex Guerrero is said to be progressing following ear re-attachment surgery, and the hope remains that the ear has been saved after loosing a significant chunk of it in a biting incident, Guerrero’s agent Scott Boras said.
“We’re still not out of the woods. But we’re optimistic. The doctor gave a good report (on Thursday),” Boras said by phone.
He can’t really work out yet because sweat and moisture is bad for area around the reattachment. Boras talks about Guerrero’s psychological state as well. Which, because this was an on-the-field incident, many of us may easily overlook. But it was nonetheless a violent attack that has left very real physical scars, so it would be understandable if there were some mental ones too.
