Cuban infielder Alexander Guerrero breaks off deal with Dodgers, remains free agent

Harry How

The big Cuban prospect is now a free agent.

Cuban sensation Alexander Guerrero will no longer be signing a deal with the Dodgers and is officially a free agent, via Jon Heyman at CBS Sports.

The Dodgers still remain a "logical favorite" according to Heyman, but the highly sought after 26-year-old infielder will likely talk with the Red Sox, Rangers, Reds, Giants and Braves.

In his final year in Cuba, the infielder posted a line of .290/.402/.576 with 21 home runs, and will likely enter whichever organization he signs with as a second baseman at the Double-A or Triple-A level.

Guerrero is represented by super-agent Scott Boras, and the two may be attempting to negotiate a better deal with the Dodgers.

It was previously reported that Guerrero would sign a five year, $32 million pact with the team. Guerrero was seen as an ideal signing for the Dodgers, who have 36-year-old Mark Ellis (.273/.326/.355) currently starting at the second base position.
