Alexander Guerrero could soon join the LA Dodgers. The Cuban star has been sought after by several MLB teams, but the Dodgers appear to be very close to an agreement. According to a report from ESPN on Monday (September 9), all that remains is for the league to approve a deal that the two sides have in place.
The deal is reportedly for seven years and $32 million, making him very likely to become the starting second baseman for the Dodgers in 2014. He has played both second base and shortstop in Cuba and is a two-time All-Star. The 26-year-old recently was granted free agency after he defected from his home country. Now he could join fellow Cuban Yasiel Puig on the roster and become the latest big name to head to Los Angeles.
If the Dodgers are able to add yet another weapon to an already stacked roster, it could make the team a favorite to make it to the 2014 World Series. With how well the team is playing this season, it's even possible that the team could be defending a title next year. As for the deal between the Dodgers and Guerrero, it hasn't been completed just yet, but rumors state that it is just a matter of time before the team makes a big announcement.
