Guerra signed a minor-league contract with the Nationals on Monday, Evan Drellich of The Athletic reports.
Guerra hit the open market at the beginning of the month after being non-tendered, but he'll wind right back up in Washington after agreeing to a minor-league deal. He figures to battle for a spot in the bullpen and could bring home another $1.5 million in performance bonuses with the big-league team.
Guerra was non-tendered by the Nationals on Monday, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports.
Guerra served as a reliable arm for both the Blue Jays and Nationals a season ago, posting a 4.66 ERA and 1.24 WHIP with a 57:17 K:BB over 67.2 innings last year.
Guerra was added to the Nationals' roster ahead of the NLCS against the Cardinals.
Guerra was left off the squad for the NLDS. The veteran righty recorded a mediocre 4.66 ERA in 67.2 regular-season innings this season.
Guerra gave up three runs on five hits over three innings while striking out two Wednesday to record his second save of the season in a 17-7 win over the Reds.
The veteran reliever had a three-inning save earlier this year with the Blue Jays as well. Guerra remains a low-leverage option in the Nats bullpen, and his 4.88 ERA and 39:15 K:BB through 48 innings don't suggest he'll be moving into a more prominent role any time soon.
Guerra had his contract selected from Triple-A Fresno by the Nationals on Sunday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Guerra was designated for assignment and outrighted to Fresno on Saturday, but he'll make a quick return to the majors with Roenis Elias (hamstring) heading to the injured list. Guerra has a 4.91 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 36:15 K:BB over 44 innings this season.
Guerra cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Fresno on Saturday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Guerra had been designated for assignment as the Nationals remade their bullpen during Wednesday's trade deadline. He owns a 4.50 ERA in 44 innings with the Blue Jays and Nationals this season.
Guerra allowed two runs on two hits and three walks over one-third of an inning in Sunday's loss to Atlanta. He struck out one.
The 33-year-old has now been tagged for six runs (four earned) in his last two appearances, sending his ERA with the Nats soaring to 4.56. Guerra is the dictionary definition of a fungible reliever -- having been designated for assignment once already this season by the Blue Jays, if Washington adds bullpen reinforcements at the trade deadline, the right-hander could find himself squeezed off another big-league roster.
Guerra (1-0) struck out two in a perfect sixth inning Thursday to pick up his first win of the season in a 7-4 victory over the Phillies.
The right-hander has been a solid part of the recent turnaround for the Nats' bullpen, posting a 2.35 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 12:3 K:BB through 15.1 innings since being claimed off waivers from the Blue Jays. Guerra likely won't see much high-leverage work, limiting his fantasy appeal, but he's capable of providing useful ratios in deep formats.
Guerra was added to the Nationals' major-league roster Tuesday.
It wasn't clear that there was a spot available for Guerra when he was picked up off waivers from Toronto on Monday, but the Nationals solved that problem by sending Jeremy Hellickson (shoulder) to the injured list. Guerra was perfectly adequate in his 14 innings for the Blue Jays prior to being designated for assignment, recording a 3.86 ERA.
The Nationals claimed Guerra on outright waivers from the Blue Jays on Monday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
The Nationals cleared a spot for Guerra on the 40-man roster by designating Dan Jennings for assignment. Since Guerra has a minor-league option remaining, he'll likely be assigned to Triple-A Fresno while the Nationals reserve Jennings' active roster spot to Tony Sipp (oblique), who was activated from the 10-day injured list. Over 11 appearances with Toronto this season, Guerra posted a 3.86 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 14 innings.
Guerra was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Saturday.
It was previously indicated Guerra was simply optioned to Triple-A Buffalo, but he was actually removed from the 40-man roster. The 33-year-old could still head to Buffalo if he goes unclaimed on waivers.
Guerra was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.
He logged four innings in two appearances over a week up with the big club. The move clears a spot for Saturday's starter Ryan Feierabend.
Guerra gave up two hits and struck out two over three scoreless innings to record his first save of the season in Friday's 10-2 win over the White Sox.
Making just his second appearance since re-joining the Jays bullpen last weekend, Guerra threw 39 pitches (27 strikes) to collect his 32nd career save, but only his second in the last five seasons. He'll continue to work in low-leverage spots for Toronto, giving him limited fantasy appeal despite a respectable 3.86 ERA and 15:5 K:BB through 14 innings.
The Blue Jays selected Guerra's contract from Triple-A Buffalo on Friday.
Guerra was designated for assignment and subsequently outrighted to Buffalo in mid-April after a posting a 5.40 ERA and 1.30 WHIP over 10 innings through the first few weeks of the season. The 33-year-old is likely to take up a low-leverage role in the bullpen for the Blue Jays.
Guerra was outrighted to Triple-A Buffalo on Monday, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.
Guerra will report to Buffalo after passing through waivers untouched. During his time with the big club, the right-hander posted a 5.40 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 10.8 K/9 through nine appearances (10 innings).
The Blue Jays designated Guerra for assignment Thursday.
Guerra lost his spot on the active roster with the Blue Jays bringing fellow reliever Ryan Tepera (elbow) back from the 10-day injured list. Over his nine appearances with Toronto spanning 10 innings, Guerra struck out 12 batters but surrendered six earned runs on nine hits and four walks. If he passes through waivers unclaimed, Guerra is expected to stay in the organization and report to Triple-A Buffalo.
Guerra gave up two runs on a hit and a walk while recording only one out in Sunday's loss to the Rays.
In two outings during the weekend series against Tampa, Guerra coughed up five runs on five hits and two walks over 1.1 innings, sending his ERA soaring from 1.35 to 6.75. The veteran right-hander remains in a low-leverage role for the Jays, notching only one hold in eight appearances, and he could be the roster casualty when Ryan Tepera (elbow) completes his rehab assignment.
The Blue Jays selected Guerra's contract and will include him on the Opening Day roster, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.
With fellow relievers Ryan Tepera (elbow) and David Phelps (elbow) opening the season on the injured list and non-roster invitees Bud Norris (forearm) and John Axford (elbow) also banged up, Guerra was able to earn a spot in the bullpen to begin the campaign. The veteran right-hander will likely be used primarily in lower-leverage spots.
Guerra gave up a hit and struck out one in a scoreless inning of relief during Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves.
Signed to a minor-league deal in January, Guerra was something of a longshot to break camp in the Jays' bullpen until Ryan Tepera (elbow) and John Axford (elbow) both broke down this week. His major-league experience and solid spring (1.29 ERA, 6:3 K:BB in seven innings) might now put him in the mix for a middle-relief role if the club can find room for him on the 40-man roster.
Guerra signed a minor-league contract with the Blue Jays and will be among 15 non-roster players invited to big-league spring training, John Lott of The Athletic reports.
There had been murmurs earlier this month that Guerra and the Blue Jays had agreed to a deal, but Toronto didn't acknowledge the signing until releasing its non-roster invitee list Saturday. The 33-year-old Guerra has 31 saves to his name in the majors, but he's mostly flitted between Triple-A and the big leagues for the better part of the past six years. Even if he earns a promotion to the 40-man roster at some point, Guerra likely wouldn't have much job security in the Toronto bullpen.
