Guerra, who secured his fourth win Friday against the Rangers, has a pair of victories overall in his last five appearances despite posting a 5.68 ERA over that span. The inflated ERA in the 6.1-inning sample is largely a result of Guerra yielding three earned runs without retiring a batter Sept. 2 against the Tigers, but he's otherwise been impressive in a variety of roles for manager Bob Melvin. The veteran right-hander has a solid 3.56 ERA and 1.02 WHIP overall in 55.2 innings across 44 appearances, although his one hold and complete absence of save chances has dinged his overall fantasy value.
Guerra (2-1) won Sunday's 3-1 triumph over the Yankees, allowing a walk with a strikeout in the eighth inning. Guerra entered a tie game in the eighth inning, retired the heart of New York's lineup and fell in line for the win when Oakland took the lead in the bottom of the frame. The victory is Guerra's first since April 21. He's assembled an impressive August resume with a 1.69 ERA in 10.2 innings across nine appearances.
Guerra fired 1.2 scoreless innings in a loss to the Yankees on Friday, allowing a hit and recording a strikeout. The right-hander has been a mostly reliable bullpen asset for manager Bob Melvin this season, and Friday's scoreless effort brought his ERA and WHIP in August down to 1.86 and 0.72, respectively. Guerra has an elite 14:2 K:BB over that 9.2-inning sample as well, but the fact he's recorded just one hold on the season does cap his fantasy value to an extent.
Guerra has seven straight scoreless appearances spanning 6.2 innings, a stretch during which he's allowed four hits, generated a 7:1 K:BB and garnered one hold. Guerra had allowed a pair of earned runs apiece in back-to-back outings prior to his current streak, so the string of strong performances have been particularly heartening. However, despite his solid 3.22 ERA and impressive 0.91 WHIP, Guerra's fantasy value is primarily limited to deep formats, considering he has only one victory and hold apiece across 28 appearances.
Guerra fired a scoreless eighth inning in a loss to the Rangers on Friday, issuing one walk. The veteran reliever is picking up work on a regular basis after a lull for much of June, as he's already logged four appearances in July. Guerra gave up two earned runs apiece in back-to-back outings June 27 and July 1, but he's bounced back to post three straight scoreless efforts over 2.2 innings.
