Guerrieri had his contract selected from Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday.
Guerrieri has posted a 3.47 ERA and 1.41 WHIP with a 39:15 K:BB over 36.1 innings this season with the Sounds, earning him a shot in the major leagues. He's been used as a starter in two games this season while in the minors, but he figures to be deployed as a reliever while with the Rangers.
The Rangers reassigned Guerrieri to their minor-league camp Saturday.
After reaching the big leagues for the first time in his career as a reliever for the Blue Jays last year, Guerrieri wasn't tendered a contract after the season and settled for a minor-league deal with Texas in free agency. The right-hander turned in a pair of scoreless appearances in the Cactus League, but the Rangers apparently didn't view him as a serious candidate for the Opening Day bullpen. Look for him to open the campaign at Triple-A Nashville.
Guerrieri signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Wednesday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports. The deal includes an invitation to spring training.
Guerrieri made his major-league debut in 2018, notching a 4.66 ERA and 8:4 K:BB in 9.2 innings of relief with the Blue Jays. The former first-round pick started seven games for Triple-A Buffalo and should compete for a swingman role in spring training.
Guerrieri elected free agency after being outrighted from Toronto's 40-man roster.
Guerrieri made his major-league debut for the Blue Jays this past season, logging a 4.66 ERA and 1.34 WHIP with eight strikeouts in 9.2 innings of relief in September. The 25-year-old will look for a new home this winter.
Guerrieri was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.
Guerrieri has struggled with the Bisons this season, posting a 5.18 ERA and 1.57 WHIP over 57.1 innings. The 25-year-old will join the Blue Jays for his first stint in the majors, hoping he can find the pedigree that got him drafted in the first round back in 2011.
Guerrieri was placed on the minor-league disabled list with an undisclosed injury Saturday, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.
The Blue Jays will be looking for a spot starter with both Aaron Sanchez (finger) and Jaime Garcia (shoulder) hitting the disabled list, but Guerrieri won't be that guy. He wasn't a particularly likely candidate when healthy, as he has a 4.74 ERA in 43.2 innings for Triple-A Buffalo this season.
Guerrieri was sent down to the minor leagues Thursday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Guerrieri allowed one run on four hits and one walk while striking out four across 6.1 innings this spring. The 25-year-old right-hander figures to begin the regular season with Triple-A Durham.
Guerrieri (elbow) returned to game action with a scoreless frame Saturday against the Tigers.
Guerrieri missed nearly all of 2017 due to an elbow injury, but it seems like he's back to full health after the lengthy absence. The 25-year-old has worked almost exclusively as a starter so far in his career. He'll likely be relegated to the minors to begin 2018 given the established options ahead of him in the pecking order in Toronto.
Guerrieri (elbow) was claimed by the Blue Jays on Monday, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.
Guerrieri, a first-round draft pick in 2011, appeared in just two games last year before an elbow injury ended his season in April. The Rays tried to pass the 24-year-old through waivers given his lack of experience above Double-A, but the Blue Jays decided to take a flyer on the recovering right-hander. He owns a combined 2.51 ERA and 1.06 WHIP across six minor-league seasons.
Guerrieri (elbow) was reinstated from the 60-day DL on Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Guerrieri wound up missing almost all of the 2017 season after exiting a mid-April outing due to a right elbow injury, which kept him on the shelf for the rest of the year, even though there was no structural damage found. Looking ahead, he will likely be ready to go for spring training, but there should be more updates on his status throughout the winter.
Guerrieri (elbow) was recalled from Triple-A Durham and placed on the 60-day disabled list.
The move is simply procedural, as it opens up a spot for Chaz Roe on the 40-man roster. While Guerrieri is eligible for activation at any point, it's unlikely he'll return this season seeing as he hasn't pitched since injuring his elbow back in April.
Guerrieri (elbow) underwent an MRI on Tuesday that revealed no structural damage in his elbow, though he will likely be out for a couple of months, Mark Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Guerrieri has been on the disabled list since injuring his right elbow during an outing on April 13. The fact that no structural damage was found means that the 24-year-old will simply treat his ailment with rest and rehab as opposed to going under the knife. He's expected to be sidelined for a couple of months. More updates on his condition should become available as his rehab progresses.
Guerrieri was placed on the 7-day disabled list at Triple-A Durham on Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Once one of the Rays' top pitching prospects, Guerrieri has lost some helium since undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2013 while also experiencing some off-field transgressions. The severity of this latest setback with his elbow isn't yet known, but the Rays are likely to treat the 24-year-old with caution. Brent Honeywell, the organization's top pitching prospect, was promoted from Double-A Montgomery to fill Guerrieri's spot in the Durham rotation.
Guerrieri was diagnosed with a right elbow injury after his early exit from Thursday's outing, Josh Norris of Baseball America reports.
Elbow injuries are always concerning for young pitchers, but the Rays have yet to announce the extent of Guerrieri's issue. He was visited by the training staff during Thursday's outing and was quickly removed from the game. The Rays' organization will likely take a very cautious approach with the young hurler's injury to ensure that Guerrieri doesn't aggravate it any further.
Guerrieri exited Thursday's outing with an undisclosed injury, Baseball America's Kyle Glaser reports.
Details are still forthcoming, but team trainers came out to check on Guerrieri and ultimately removed him from the game. According to Glaser, there was no tell-tale sign as to where Guerrieri suffered his injury, but Durham's training staff clearly did not to risk any further damage to one of the organization's best pitching prospects. More information on Guerrieri's injury figures to be made available before the weekend.
Guerrieri was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Wednesday.
It was a good learning experience for Guerrieri to be in big league camp, learning from pitchers like Chris Archer and Jake Odorizzi, but he never had a shot of actually breaking camp on the 25-man roster. Guerrieri traded strikeouts for weak contact last season, and in doing so his dynasty league stock really took a hit. Unless the strikeout rate bounces back, it's hard to envision him re-establishing his potential as a mid-rotation starter.
Guerrieri (head) fired two scoreless innings in Tuesday's 7-6 extra-inning Grapefruit League loss to the Yankees, surrendering just one hit. He struck out two.
Guerrieri made a successful return to game action after receiving multiple stitches in his right eyebrow stemming from a fainting spell and subsequent fall in his bathroom Saturday morning. The 24-year-old right-hander has been solid over his first three spring appearances, surrendering one earned run on two hits over four innings while also notching four strikeouts.
Guerrieri will be held out of Saturday's workouts and likely need stitches after hitting his head on a bathtub, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Guerrieri reportedly felt lightheaded in his bathroom and tried to brace himself as he passed out, but hit his head on the corner of the tub. The 24-year-old says he's fine after the incident and should return to action by Sunday. Guerrieri, a former first-round draft pick, has appeared in two games this spring and is expected to begin the upcoming season in the minors.
Guerrieri surrendered one earned run on one hit over one inning in Thursday's 19-2 Grapefruit League loss to the Red Sox. He also recorded a strikeout.
The 24-year-old righty, getting a chance for some big league exposure after solid efforts in the minors the last two seasons, gave up his first run of the spring when Steve Selsky took him deep in the eighth. Guerrieri is projected to start the season with Triple-A Durham after posting a 12-6 record, 3.76 ERA and 1.21 WHIP over 146 innings last season at Double-A Montgomery, and could well be a candidate for a call-up later in the season should he thrive at that level.
Guerrieri was optioned to minor league camp Tuesday.
Guerrieri put up sparkling numbers at Double-A last season, working to a 1.50 ERA in eight starts. The majors likely remain a year away, though he could get the opportunity to be a September call-up, but the 23-year-old figures to start the season at Triple-A.
