Dodgers make it official with Cuban defector Guerrero

Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday announced the signing of Cuban infielder Alexander Guerrero to a four-year contract.

No financial terms were disclosed, but the Los Angeles Times stated Monday that the deal is worth $28 million, with a $10 million signing bonus. He can also earn another $4 million in bonuses.

"We feel Alexander can be an offensive infielder and a solid everyday player," said Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti. "We're looking forward to him competing for a middle infield position and becoming a key contributor in 2014."

Guerrero, a middle infielder, defected from Cuba earlier this year and had been working out in the Dominican Republic.

The 26-year-old spent seven seasons with Las Tunas. In his final season in Cuba in 2011-12, Guerrero batted .290 with 21 home runs and 51 RBI in 80 games, including a .402 on-base percentage and .576 slugging percentage. He was stellar in the field as well, committing eight errors in 350 chances at shortstop for a .977 fielding percentage.
