Vladimir Guerrero Working Out With Diamondbacks, Even Kevin Towers Is Unsure Why

The Diamondbacks' general manager, Kevin Towers, released some interesting information on Sunday afternoon as the club took on the Marlins: Vladimir Guerrero would be working out with the club on Monday. The news comes as a bit of a surprise, especially given the outfield depth already assembled on the roster. It really doesn't make any sense at all, as SB Nation Arizona made note of on Sunday.

Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic got a chance to talk with Towers about working out Vlad this week and potentially adding the 37-year-old outfielder to the roster.

And another tweet:

Certainly interesting, although it doesn't sound like anything is remotely close to happening in Arizona. This really is a no-risk situation for the Diamondbacks, although they would likely be spending $1 million dollars or so to bring the veteran to the desert. Given Guerrero's inability to play defense in the outfield anymore, it seems like a poor fit.
