The Los Angeles Dodgers were able to sign one of the top defecting free agents during the off-season by signing 27 year old second baseman Alexander Guerrero.
This move made a lot of Dodger fans healthy, giving them a solid second baseman who has a bright future ahead of them. I know some wanted Mark Ellis to return, but Guerrero would have ended up beating him for the starting job either way. Now Guerrero strained his oblique during one of the final Spring Training days and was placed on the disabled list.
According to Eric Stephen on Twitter, Guerrero is finally healthy and will join their Triple-A affiliate.

Stephen also notes that infielder Brendan Harris was released from Triple-A Albuquerque’s roster in order to make room for Guerrero. There was obviously no competition between the two, so someone had to go. But with Harris’ time with the Dodgers running out, only means another chapter in his career will begin shortly.
Someone will pick up Harris and use him to his full potential.
