Guerra had his contract purchased from Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports. Guerra, who was designated for assignment by the Angels earlier in the year after compiling a 5.66 ERA across 20.2 major-league innings, is expected to serve in a low-leverage roll out of the bullpen for the big club.
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.
