Guerra cleared waivers and was outrighted to the alternate training site Tuesday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.
Guerra was designated for assignment over the weekend but will remain with the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. The 31-year-old surrendered seven runs on 10 hits with an 8:2 K:BB over 7.1 innings before getting removed from the 40-man roster.
Guerra was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Saturday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.
Guerra was inconsistent out of the bullpen this season as he posted an 8.59 ERA and 1.64 WHIP over 7.1 innings. He'll be removed from the 40-man roster to make room for several relievers that the team acquired recently. Given Guerra's lackluster results at the top level, it's unclear whether he'll find another spot on a 40-man roster via waivers.
Guerra (0-1) allowed two runs on two hits and was charged with the loss in Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Braves. He recorded one out.
Guerra came on during a tie game in the fifth inning Sunday, but he gave up a home run to Ronald Acuna that proved to be the difference in the contest. The right-hander had posted scoreless outings in each of his past two appearances but now carries an 11.25 ERA. His fantasy value is limited as a middle reliever with lackluster results.
Guerra has the inside track on a bullpen spot due to the fact that he's out of options, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Teams are likely to carry extra pitchers to open the year, with rosters temporarily expanding from 26 to 30. Guerra is a strong candidate to win one of those spots, though he shouldn't be expected to fill anything other than a low-leverage role, as he's made just a single big-league appearance over the last two seasons.
Guerra was claimed off waivers by the Phillies on Wednesday.
JD Hammer was designated for assignment in order to clear a spot on Philadelphia's 40-man roster. Guerra only made one big-league appearance for the Brewers last year, surrendering four earned runs in two-thirds of an inning. The 30-year-old relief pitcher spent most of the 2019 season with Triple-A San Antonio, posting an impressive 1.89 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 88:16 K:BB across 66.2 innings.
Guerra was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Thursday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
The Brewers needed to free up a roster spot for David Phelps, who officially signed with the team Thursday, and Guerra was the corresponding roster casualty. The right-hander spent most of the 2019 season with Triple-A San Antonio, notching a 1.89 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 88:16 K:BB in 66.2 innings.
Guerra signed a one-year major-league contract with the Brewers on Friday.
Guerra will be on the Brewers' 40-man roster, but there's no guarantee he wins a roster spot in spring. The 30-year-old has recorded just two big-league outs over the last two seasons while allowing four runs.
Guerra cleared waivers Wednesday and was sent to Triple-A San Antonio, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Guerra was designated for assignment on Saturday after making just a single appearance. He'll remain in an organizational depth role for the Brewers.
Guerra was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Saturday.
Guerra's stay on the 40-man roster lasted all of two days. He made a single appearance, allowing four runs while recording just two outs Friday against the Pirates. Burch Smith was recalled in a corresponding move.
The Brewers selected Guerra's contract from Triple-A San Antonio on Thursday.
Since Milwaukee already had an opening on the 40-man roster, no corresponding move was needed to clear a spot for Guerra, who posted a 2.61 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 48 strikeouts in 41.1 innings with San Antonio. The 30-year-old journeyman reliever has a more modest track record at the big-league level (4.17 ERA, 7.1 K/9 in 73 appearances between 2015 and 2017) and will likely have to settle for a low-leverage role in his initial action with the Brewers.
Guerra was reassigned to minor-league camp Tuesday.
Guerra was unable to carve out a spot on the Brewers' Opening Day roster despite posting a respectable 3.38 ERA and 6:1 K:BB through 5.2 innings this spring. He'll provide pitching depth for Milwaukee in 2019.
Guerra signed a minor-league contract which includes an invitation to spring training with the Brewers on Saturday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
The 29-year-old spent parts of three seasons in the majors, recording a career 4.17 ERA in 95 innings of relief. He hasn't been in the big leagues since 2017, and he spent the entirety of last season with Triple-A Round Rock in the Rangers' system, where he threw 59.1 innings with a 3.79 ERA, striking out 30.0 percent of batters while walking just 6.8 percent. If he earns a major-league job, it will likely be in a low-leverage relief role.
The Rangers reassigned Guerra to their minor-league camp Sunday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Guerra, a non-roster invitee, made five appearances in the Cactus League but didn't impress, giving up four runs (three earned) on eight hits and a walk over 5.1 innings. The right-hander is expected to slot in as organizational bullpen depth at Triple-A Round Rock.
Guerra signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Tuesday which includes an invitation to spring training.
Guerra bounced between the Angels and their Triple-A affiliate last season. While he posted a solid 1.98 ERA and 41:8 K:BB in 41 innings with Triple-A Salt Lake, the 28-year-old finished with an unimpressive 4.68 ERA and 22:12 K:BB across 25 innings with the big club. He'll fight for a spot in the Rangers' bullpen during spring training, though he doesn't figure to see anything more than low-leverage work if he does break camp with Texas.
Guerra declined his outright assignment to Triple-A Salt Lake and will become a free agent, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.
Guerra didn't make much of an impact with the Angels in 2017, posting a 4.68 ERA over 25 innings. Instead of joining Salt Lake on assignment, he's opted to head to free agency and will look to latch on with another big-league team prior to the 2018 campaign.
Guerra was outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday.
Guerra served multiple stints of low-leverage work in the Angels' bullpen during the 2017 season, posting a pedestrian 4.68 ERA over 25 innings. He'll kick off the 2018 campaign with Salt Lake if he accepts his assignment.
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.
