Five MLB teams in running for services of Cuban Alexander Guerrero

(By OCAL, courtesy Clker.com)

There are reports on the radio and in other media reports that Cuban infielder Alexander Guerrero has interest in him from five Major League Baseball teams.

The teams are the Dodgers, Twins, Red Sox and Braves.

The fifth team could be the Cincinnati Reds due to the fact that they signed closer Aroldis Chapman, another Cuban defector. Guerrero is likely to sign where he is comfortable.

The 26-year-old is said to be after a five-to-seven-year deal for his services.

Guerrero defected earlier this year and currently is working out in the Dominican Republic.

In order for him to gain entrance to the United States, Guerrero will have to be unblocked by the Office of Foreign Assests Control and then he can sign with any MLB team.

The Los Angeles Angels have hired Arizona Diamondbacks executive Jerry DiPoto as their new general manager.

The 43-year-old DiPoto spent the past six seasons in Arizona’s front office, serving as interim GM in 2010 and stayed with the team after the D-Backs hired Kevin Towers for the fulltime GM job in September 2010.

DiPoto has also worked for the Red Sox when they had their run to the 2004 World Series.

The 43-year-old DiPoto pitched in the major leagues for Cleveland, the NY Mets and Colorado. He had a career record of 27-24 with 49 saves in his career.

One of the Cleveland Indians strong points in the second half of the 2010 season was their bullpen and it has pitched well so far this year.

Chad Durbin, Rafael Perez, Frank Herrmann, Tony Sipp and Vinnie Pestano all pitched well as the Indians beat the Red Sox 8-4 in Cleveland for their third straight win. The Red Sox dropped to 0-5 and are off to their worst start since 1996.

The Indians also showed that they can hit the baseball. Shin-Soo Choo, Matt LaPorta and Asdrubal Cabrera homered. Cabrera had the biggest of them all, a three-run drive to the right-field seats in the sixth inning for a 7-2 lead and giving him a 4-RBI night.

Brown leads Clippers to 5-4 conquest of Pawtucket

Jordan Brown is a money hitter especially with the bases loaded.

He continues to deliver the goods and did so on Sunday night against Pawtucket, in the fifth inning with a bases-clearing double, leading Columbus to the 5-4 victory.

Brown’s three-run double highlighted a four-run inning, their sixteenth of the year, and allowed Columbus to move from one run down to three runs up after its completion. Brown, on the season with the bases loaded, is now 10-for-13 with 26 RBI’s.

Jose Constanza, Josh Rodriguez and Luis Valbuena all scored on Brown’s double. That trio combined to go 4-for-12 at the plate with an RBI and two walks.

Carlos Carrasco started for Columbus but only pitched four innings. He left the game early for the second straight start.

The bullpen of Shane Lindsay and Vinnie Pestano shut the door on the Pawtucket Red Sox.
