Rays' Javy Guerra: Loses 40-man spot
The Rays designated Guerra for assignment Wednesday.
Guerra's latest stint with the Rays lasted just under two weeks, with the right-hander making a trio of two-inning relief appearances during that stretch and allowing three earned runs on three hits and four walks. The Rays called up Calvin Faucher from Triple-A Durham to replace Guerra in the bullpen and on the 26-man active roster. Guerra will now be exposed to waivers but could remain in the Tampa Bay organization if he goes unclaimed.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Javy Guerra: Contract selected
Guerra's contract was selected by the Rays on Saturday.
Guerra pitched his way off the 40-man roster in mid-May but went unclaimed and remained in the Rays' organization. He owns a 6.75 ERA in 13.1 innings of relief at the big-league level this season, striking out nine batters while walking 18. His 5.94 ERA at the Triple-A level doesn't inspire confidence either. Elvin Rodriguez was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less

Rays' Javy Guerra: Removed from roster
Tampa Bay designated Guerra for assignment Sunday, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports.
Guerra is removed from the 26- and 40-man roster to make room for Zack Littell, with Littell officially joining the Rays on Sunday. After being acquired by the Rays from the Brewers at the start of May, Guerra allowed two runs over five innings in six appearances for a 3.60 ERA, but he walked nine hitters against four strikeouts as command continues to be an issue for the right-handed reliever....

Rays' Javy Guerra: Set to be opener again Sunday
Guerra will operate as the Rays' opening pitcher for Sunday's matchup with the Yankees, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports.
After being acquired via trade from the Brewers on April 29, Guerra served as the team's opener Tuesday versus the Pirates, walking two batters while pitching two-thirds scoreless to begin the contest. He'll now look to make it two straight scoreless outings since returning to Tampa Bay prior to handing the ball off to Josh Fleming as the Rays go for the series win Sunday. Guerra owns an 8.00 ERA and 2.33 WHIP with five strikeouts over nine innings in nine appearances this season with the Brewers and Rays, though his numbers are inflated by the five runs he allowed to the Pirates over 1.2 innings on April 23....

Rays' Javy Guerra: Opening Tuesday's game
Guerra will serve as the Rays' opening pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Pirates, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Guerra is beginning his second stint with the Rays after he appeared in 17 games for the big club in 2022 before being dealt to Milwaukee in November. The right-hander turned in an 8.64 ERA and 2.28 WHIP in 8.1 innings over his eight relief outings with the Brewers before Tampa Bay re-acquired him Saturday. Guerra maxed out at two innings and 44 pitches during his time with Milwaukee, so he likely won't be asked to work more than once through the batting order Tuesday before turning the game over to bulk reliever Josh Fleming....

Brewers' Javy Guerra: Grabs roster spot
Guerra, per Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, secured a spot on the Brewers' Opening Day roster.
Guerra was tagged for seven earned runs over 5.2 spring training innings, but with him out of options the Brewers elected to place him in the big-league bullpen and give him a chance to iron things out. Guerra owns a career 6.60 ERA at the big-league level, but he did post a 3.38 over 17 appearances with the Rays last season.... See More ... See Less

While the Rays didn't see Guerra as worthy of a 40-man roster spot, the Brewers will welcome the 27-year-old righty (not to be confused with the 37-year-old, 11-year MLB veteran of the same name). Milwaukee will be hoping he can refine his command and control a bit.... See More ... See Less
