Prospect Watch: Michael Young’s retirement opens the door for Alexander Guerrero

Cuban defector Alexander Guerrero arrives in the bigs with plenty of questions, but plenty of power potential, too. To the extent that you can call any 27 year old a prospect, Alexander Guerrero is one of the more interesting first year players on the radar this year.

Report: Dodgers Have An Offer Out To Michael Young
