Guerra cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday. He was designated for assignment over the weekend, and unsurprisingly went unclaimed. Guerra will act as organizational depth at Triple-A going forward.
Guerra was designated for assignment by the Angels on Saturday. A four-run implosion Friday raised Guerra's ERA to 5.66 and spelled the end of his tenure on the 40-man and active rosters. Damien Magnifico will replace Guerra in the Angels' bullpen.
Guerra pitched two scoreless innings in relief Thursday against the Rays. The outing brought the 28-year-old's ERA back under 4.00 on the season. Guerra has done a good job of limiting baserunners (1.06 WHIP), but his propensity to surrender home runs (2.2 HR/9) makes him a risky middle-relief option.
Guerra was called up to the majors from Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports. Guerra posted two impressive appearances out of the Bees' bullpen, fanning six batters in just 3.2 innings pitched. He'll slot into a middle-relief role as a replacement for Daniel Wright.
Guerra cleared waivers Wednesday and was outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake. The right-hander was designated for assignment earlier in February, and despite posting a solid 3.21 ERA and exhibiting outstanding control during 53.1 major league innings, he'll remain in the Angels organization for a bit longer. Unless an injury strikes the big league relief corps, it seems like Guerra is destined for an organizational depth role in 2017.
