Guerra has performed well for the Angels in 2016, posting a 2.22 ERA over 24.1 innings. He has not issued a walk over that span. Guerra has shown strong peripherals in his second taste of major league action, having allowed just just one home run in 16 games while registering a 23 percent hard contact rate. The Angels generally turn to Guerra in mop-up situations, which could limit his fantasy value, but he did pick up a win against the Rays in his last outing. Keep an eye on the 27-year-old to see if he is handed a more prominent role in the bullpen going forward.
Guerra had his contract selected by the Angels on Saturday, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports. Nick Tropeano landed on the DL with a shoulder injury Saturday, so the Angels opted to bring Guerra back up to add an extra arm to the bullpen. The Angels will need to make a decision in the coming days on who will start in Tropeano's place Tuesday, so Guerra's stint with the Angels could be an abbreviated one. Guerra has a 6.75 ERA in three appearances with the Angels this season.
Guerra was designated for assignment by the Angels on Monday. Guerra had his contract selected just over a week ago, and despite two flawless appearances, a four-run outing May 25 against the Rangers soured his overall numbers. The big right-hander can now choose to remain in the organization at the Triple-A level, or elect free agency (if he clears waivers).
Guerra had his contract selected by the Angels on Saturday. Guerra will take the roster spot of Al Albuquerque, who was designated for assignment in a corresponding move Saturday. The 27-year-old righty has made three appearances at Triple-A Salt Lake since rejoining the Angels organization this spring, working 5.0 scoreless innings in that span. He'll provide additional depth to the Angels' bullpen.
Guerra has accepted a minor league deal with the Angels after electing free agency, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports. Guerra has already reported to minor league camp and will likely begin the season at Triple-A Salt Lake. As Guerra didn't even test the waters of free agency, these moves were likely to find a more favorable deal for both parties going forward.
