Guerrero reached the big leagues for the first time in his career last September, appearing in 14 games for the Reds and recording three hits in 18 at-bats. After being non-tendered by Cincinnati after the season, Guerrero will move on to his fourth organization in Miami. Given the lack of established outfield talent on the Marlins' 40-man roster, it wouldn't be surprising if Guerrero eventually earned a promotion back to the majors if he fares well at Triple-A New Orleans.
Guerrero was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville after passing through waivers unclaimed.
Guerrero played in 14 games with the Reds during the month of September, going 3-for-18 with a solo home run and eight strikeouts in his brief opportunity with the club. He spent the majority of the season at the Triple-A level after being promoted from Double-A Chattanooga in early May.
Guerrero connected on a pinch-hit solo home run in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Marlins.
It was the 24-year-old's first big-league homer. Guerrero's only seen 10 plate appearances since getting promoted in September, but he could be ready to compete for a regular roster spot in Cincinnati next spring given his .292/.326/.475 slash line in 104 games for Triple-A Louisville this season.
Guerrero's contract was selected by the Reds on Tuesday.
Guerrero hit a solid .292/.326/.475 with 17 homers in 104 games for Triple-A Louisville this season. The 24-year-old has yet to receive his major-league debut. He'll get one in the near future, though there doesn't appear to be a large amount of at-bats to go around in the outfield down the stretch.
The Reds are expected to formally promote Guerrero from Triple-A Louisville prior to Monday's game against the Pirates, Craig Mish of Sirius XM reports.
Cincinnati hasn't announced the transaction and Guerrero isn't included in the team's lineup for the series opener, but it appears the 24-year-old will be added to the 40-man roster after punishing pitchers at Double-A Pensacola and Louisville throughout the season. Between the two stops, Guerrero slashed .293/.328/.474 with 19 home runs and 81 RBI across 539 plate appearances. With the Reds seemingly content with Scott Schebler, Billy Hamilton and Phillip Ervin as their everyday outfield, Guerrero isn't expected to see regular at-bats in September.
