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.”
