Dodgers Reportedly Shopping Alex Guerrero

Feb 11, 2016 6:01 PM

The Los Angeles Dodgers are attempting to trade Alex Guerrero and have talked to "numerous" clubs about the infielder/outfielder, according to a FOX Sports report.

Guerrero signed a four-year, $28 million deal with the Dodgers in March 2014. The contract runs through the 2017 season, but stipulates that if he is traded, he can become a free agent at the end of that season.

'Lazarito' Nearing Decision On Major League Team

Feb 9, 2016 4:29 PM

Lazaro "Lazarito" Armenteros is expected to make a decision on where he will sign Wednesday, about one month after Major League Baseball declared him a free agent.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound outfielder, 16, has drawn interest from the Atlanta Braves, Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Dodgers, San Diego Padres and Philadelphia Phillies.

"I'm always ready. I'm realizing my dream to play professional baseball," Armenteros told MLB.com last week at Estadio Quisqueya during the Caribbean Series. "I'm planning on making a decision on [Wednesday], but only God knows what will happen and when I will sign. I'm not worried about it. I'm just waiting on the right opportunity."

Dodgers Telling Teams Puig Is Off Limits

Feb 5, 2016 9:23 AM

Andre Ethier has been the most discussed trade candidate for the Los Angeles Dodgers, in part, because the club is telling teams that Yasiel Puig is not available.

Puig's contract guarantees him $19.5 million over the next three seasons, although it also allows him to opt into arbitration once he is eligible next offseason.

Vin Scully To Only Call Games In California

Feb 1, 2016 7:50 AM

Vin Scully, who is entering his 67th season behind the microphone for the Los Angeles Dodgers, has said that this will likely be his final season.

The Hall of Fame broadcaster sounded certain about that this weekend at the team's annual FanFest.

Scully does not intend to work outside California this year. He will call games at San Diego and the two-game May series in Anaheim against the Los Angeles Angels.

He hopes to finish his career with the Dodgers' season-ending three-game series at San Francisco.

"[I was] a kid who was born and raised in the streets of New York, who grew up literally and figuratively in the Polo Grounds and was a rabid Giants fan. I confess that. It's good for the soul," Scully said. "I think I would love to finish in a game between the Dodgers and Giants. God willing it will work out. We'll see, but the best-laid plans of mice and men usually go up in smoke."
