I just talked to Walt Jocketty. He didn’t have any news on the manager front. But he said the Reds are pretty much out of the running for Cuban infielder Alexander Guerrero.

“We scouted him extensively and had a lot of discussions” Jocketty said. “But I don’t believe anything will happen.”

Guerrero 26 was rumored to have signed a six-year $32 million deal with the Dodgers in July. Those reports turned out not to be true. Scott Boras now represents Guerrero.

Guerrero has not played since 2011. He was left off Cuba’s World Cup team. He’s been in the Dominican since January.

Guerrero played shortstop for Cuba but scouts project him as a second baseman in the majors
