Dodgers prospect Alex Guerrero returned to game action yesterday, nearly two months after Triple-A teammate Miguel Olivo bit his ear off during a dugout incident. And in his first game back, Guerrero homered.
That’s fitting, because before having his ear bitten off by a maniac Guerrero was knocking around Triple-A pitchers to the tune of a .376 batting average with 10 homers and a 1.152 OPS in 33 games. This time he homered (and had two other hits) off a rookie-ball pitcher, because Guerrero is officially on a rehab assignment for now.
Dee Gordon was just selected for his first All-Star game, so Guerrero won’t be replacing him at second base in Los Angeles anytime soon, but if the 27-year-old picks up right where he left off surely the Dodgers can find a spot for him somewhere in the lineup after giving him $28 million to sign out of Cuba.
