SAN FRANCISCO — Dodgers manager Dave Roberts provided a brief update today on infielder Alex Guerrero, who was held behind in spring training to rehab a knee injury.
“Alex is feeling better,” Roberts said. “He’s had one MRI that showed some things with his knee, but he’s still not doing baseball activity. We’re trying to make sure it doesn’t get into something else so he’s still kind of laying low.”
Guerrero is on the 15-day disabled list.
Alex Guerrero (knee) will begin the season on the disabled list, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Thursday.
Guerrero had an MRI exam today on his left knee, which he injured on a slide in a Cactus League game. The injury was originally diagnosed as a contusion. Roberts said the results of the MRI would be announced later today.
While the Dodgers have returned to Los Angeles for the annual preseason Freeway Series against the Angels, Guerrero remains at the Dodgers’ complex in Glendale, Arizona.
GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Dodgers scratched Alex Guerrero from his scheduled return to Cactus League action Saturday with a lingering knee injury. Guerrero, who was scheduled to DH against the Seattle Mariners in a split-squad game in Peoria, Ariz., was replaced by Shawn Zarraga.
Guerrero hasn’t played in a game since March 3.
“I think we’re pretty confident that he’s going to be fine long-term,” Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said Saturday. “Whether that means tomorrow or five days from now it’s tough to say. He’s basically at that last mile where he’s hitting and taking ground balls. It’s just, opening it up in a straight line, he’s felt it a little bit. We have time right now. He’s seeing pitching. We’ll just be smart about it on the front.”
Alex Guerrero is scheduled to be the Dodgers’ designated hitter tomorrow against the Seattle Mariners in Peoria, manager Dave Roberts said Friday..
