Dodgers’ Alex Guerrero on signing Pablo Millan Fernandez.

GLENDALE, Ariz. — For Dodgers infielder Alex Guerrero, news that pitcher Pablo Millan Fernandez agreed to a minor-league deal with the Dodgers (pending a physical) was welcome Monday morning.

“We know each other good,” Guerrero said in Spanish, adding that he’s batted against Fernandez in Cuba.

“Good control, command, great kid, good attitude, that’s all I can say,” Guerrero said by way of a scouting report. “Slider, fastball — the best thing is that he locates them good.”

Fernandez, 25, is married and comes with a reputation of being a mature player. Guerrero called Fernandez a “calm kid” and “humble.”

By all accounts, Fernandez’s final off-field issue should be obtaining his U.S. work visa.
