Guerra was promoted to Miami on Friday, Clark Spencer of The Miami Herald reports. Guerra was recently designated for assignment by the Marlins on Aug. 22, but will be re-added to the 40-man roster and placed on the active roster heading into this weekend's series with Philadelphia. Over four appearances with the club this year, Guerra has posted a 6.35 ERA and 1.59 WHIP in 5.2 innings, and figures to serve as added depth out of the bullpen.
Guerra was outrighted to Triple-A New Orleans on Wednesday, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports. During limited use with the big club this season, Guerra has been a liability on the mound. Over four games (5.2 innings) he's allowed four earned runs on five walks and four hits -- two of which were home runs. He'll return to New Orleans, where he's pitched to the tune of a 4.99 ERA and 1.32 WHIP this season.
The Marlins designated Guerra for assignment Tuesday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. Since saving 21 games and turning in a 2.31 ERA over 46.2 innings for the Dodgers during his debut season in 2011, Guerra's career has gone steadily downhill, with the 31-year-old right-hander bouncing around between four organizations with limited success. Despite posting mediocre numbers in the Pacific Coast League earlier this season, Guerra earned the call to a decimated Marlins bullpen in August and made just four appearances with the big club, yielding four runs over 5.2 innings. It's expected that he'll go unclaimed off waivers and remain in the Marlins' organization as a depth reliever at Triple-A New Orleans.
Guerra was called up to the big leagues Wednesday. Guerra will take the place of Chris O'Grady, who was placed on the disabled list with an oblique injury. Guerra hasn't made an appearance yet this season with Miami but has 41 strikeouts and a 4.99 ERA in 48.2 innings with Triple-A New Orleans.
Guerra has been reassigned to minor league camp, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports. The news shouldn't come as a major surprise. Guerra was signed to a minor league contract this offseason and has struggled in Grapefruit League play, posting a 9.00 ERA in three appearances. The right-hander is likely to begin the 2017 season at Triple-A New Orleans after spending last season in the Angels' system.
