Yomiuri giants do not renew the services of Cuban Alexander Guerrero


The Cuban slugger Alex Guerrero will not continue in the ranks of the Yomiuri Giants of the Japan Professional League, after the organization announced this Friday that they will not renew the player's contract.

Guerrero, a native of Las Tunas, debuted in Japan in 2017 with the Chunichi Dragons and led the Central League with 35 home runs.

The Giants of Yomiuri signed it for two years, but instabilities in their offensive production, some discipline problems and the interest of looking for other names in the market, ruined the Cuban liberation.

The 32-year-old hit .256 / .357 / .550, 18 doubles, two triples and 26 home runs, plus 66 RBIs in 2019.

The most likely scenario for Guerrero is that some team in Japan needs its free agent services and ends up returning to the circuit in 2020.
