      Rays' Taylor Guerrieri: Added to 40-man roster

      Guerrieri was added to the Rays' 40-man roster on Friday. He is one of several intriguing pitching prospects in a pretty flush Rays farm system, but probably won't be fantasy relevant until at least 2017. This transaction was specifically for Rule 5 protection.

      Rehabbing Taylor Guerrieri eager to return

      Rays starting pitcher Taylor Guerrieri, who had Tommy John surgery in July 2013, should be recovered for the start of spring training, according to MLB.com, and is ready to get back to being one of the organization's top prospects after a season that was marred by both the injury and a 50-game suspension for a second positive test for a drug of abuse. "I want to stay healthy," Guerrieri said. "I never want to go through this process again. And I've made great strides in my work ethic, my personality, too. Being injured will definitely humble you. All around, I would say it's a good thing that it happened." Guerrieri, the 24th overall pick in the 2011, was brilliant in his first stint with the Rays in 2012, compiling a 1.04 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 7.8 strikeouts per nine innings in 12 starts for short-season Class A Hudson Valley. He wasn't quite as dominant before the injury was discovered in 2013, but he still managed a 2.01 ERA in 14 starts for low Class A Bowling Green. In five starts rehabilitating at Rookie ball this year, he didn't allow an earned run, striking out 10 in 9 1/3 innings.

      Taylor Guerrieri leaves with sore elbow

      Rays top pitching prospect Taylor Guerrieri left his start with Class A Bowling Green Monday due to a sore elbow, MiLB.com reports. He left in the third inning and will be re-evaluated Tuesday. Guerrieri, who had already skipped his previous start due to shoulder fatigue, was only scheduled to go four innings or 60 pitches Monday before leaving. "He threw the pitch, and you could see him grimace right after," said Bowling Green manager Jared Sandberg, whose team went on to win the contest, 6-5. "We all went out there, and there was no real debate as to whether to keep him out there. We took him out, and we'll get him re-evaluated when we get home." Before the injury, Guerrieri extended a scoreless innings streak to 24, tying him for the franchise record. The right-handed starter has gone 6-2 with a 2.01 ERA and 0.99 WHIP over 65 innings and 13 starts this season with 50 strikeouts and 11 walks.

      Taylor Guerrieri pitching like top prospect

      Rays starting pitcher prospect Taylor Guerrieri struck out a career-high 10 batters in five scoreless innings during a win Sunday for Class A Bowling Green. The right-hander (2-1) allowed one hit and two walks. "I had good changeup command. Really, everything was working pretty well," Guerrieri said, per MLB.com. "The only thing I didn't like was those two walks. I didn't feel very good about that. I just got behind. I fell behind 3-0 to both of those guys. All the guys [whom] I got ahead on, I got out. The name of the game is getting ahead, I guess." Guerrieri sports a 2.00 ERA and .216 opponents' batting average through six starts. He also has 25 strikeouts to six walks in 27 innings. Guerrieri hasn't logged a lot of innings because the Rays continue to keep the 2011 first-round pick on a strict pitch count. "I'm still on the five innings/75 pitches rule -- whichever comes first," said Guerrieri, who is considered the Rays' second-best prospect by MLB.com. "I'm OK with it. I was in spring training for an extra week, so some of our guys get to do a little more. They're up to six innings/85 pitches. I ended up at 79 pitches after five today. If I could throw out those first two innings and replace them with good innings, I bet I would have gotten to pitch six. Those first two innings took 40 pitches. If you took those away, I would have been able to go a little bit deeper."
