Latest On Indians, Vladimir Guerrero

Cleveland GM Chris Antonetti downplayed the Indians' interest in Vladimir Guerrero this morning, according to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer (Twitter links). The Indians watched the free agent designated hitter hit and field yesterday in the Dominican Republic, but they don't necessarily have serious interest.

"Vladdy wants to keep playing. He asked if we wanted to see him work out. We worked him out," Antonetti said. 

Enrique Rojas of ESPNDeportes.com hears that the Indians will work Guerrero out again today, which could be an indication that yesterday's workout went well (Twitter link). There doesn’t appear to be a fit between the Indians and Guerrero, ESPN.com’s Buster Olney tweeted earlier today. Carrying two DH types would create a roster crunch and Travis Hafner isn’t going anywhere.
