Brewers' Junior Guerra: Notches fifth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra (5-3) pitched two innings and picked up his fifth win of the season in Wednesday's victory over the Pirates.

Guerra recorded three wins over his first 49 appearances of the season, but he boosted that number by picking up wins in each of the Brewers' last two games. Since seeing his ERA rise to 4.41 after his appearance on July 17 -- the highest it was since his first appearance of the season -- he has gotten back on track, giving up just two earned runs over 10 innings to drop his ERA back to 3.98.

Brewers' Junior Guerra: ERA climbing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra allowed an earned run over 0.2 innings of relief in Saturday's victory over the Giants.

Guerra allowed four earned runs over two outings prior to the break, and after giving up another in his first outing of the second half, his ERA now sits at 4.31-- the highest it has been since his Opening Day appearance. Guerra picked up two wins, two saves, and eight holds over his first 21 games this season while working mainly in a setup role in front of Josh Hader; but with Jeremy Jeffress reclaiming those duties in late May, Guerra has accumulated just one win and three holds -- and no saves -- in 19 appearances since.

Brewers' Junior Guerra: Getting it done out of bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra threw two scoreless innings of relief in Wednesday's extra-innings victory over the Astros.

Guerra gave up five earned runs over a three-game stretch from May 28 through June 5, but he kept the opponent off the scoreboard in his last two opportunities. Despite giving up a few runs recently, Guerra is still looking good in the ratio departments, posting a 3.09 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 35:15 K:BB in 35 innings over 28 appearances out of the bullpen this season.

Brewers' Junior Guerra: Grabs second win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra tossed 1.1 scoreless innings and recorded his second win of the season in Wednesday's victory over the Reds.

Guerra allowed two runners to reach base Wednesday, but he kept the opponent off the scoreboard for the seventh time in nine appearances this month and lowered his ERA on the season to 2.39. Guerra continues to be part of the setup mix -- along with Jeremy Jeffress and, to a lesser degree, Alex Claudio -- in front of closer Josh Hader.

Brewers' Junior Guerra: Gets second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra struck out two in a scoreless inning to record his second save in a 5-3 win over the Nationals.

It took Guerra 18 pitches in a perfect ninth inning to nail down his second save. With Josh Hader not available, the right-hander proved that he is capable when his number is called. It is not likely he will receive regular opportunities, but he could pick up the occasional save. Guerra has a 1-0 record with a 2.21 ERA through 20.1 innings this season.

Brewers' Junior Guerra: Back from bereavement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra was reinstated from the bereavement list Saturday.

Guerra had been away from the team since Monday. Tyler Saladino was optioned to Triple-A San Antonio in a corresponding move.

Brewers' Junior Guerra: To rejoin team Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra (not injury related) is expected to rejoin the team in time for Saturday's game against the Mets, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Guerra was placed on the bereavement list Monday in order to be with his father in Venezuela, and he ended up missing three games. With Guerra on his way back, Milwaukee will be forced to clear a spot on the 25-man roster.

Brewers' Junior Guerra: Placed on bereavement list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra was placed on the bereavement list Monday.

Guerra will likely miss the mid-week series against the Cardinals. Jake Petricka was recalled from Triple-A San Antonio in a corresponding move.

Brewers' Junior Guerra: Picks up multi-inning save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra tossed two perfect innings of relief in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Dodgers to record his first save of the season.

Josh Hader got four outs Friday, so manager Craig Counsell gave his closer the night off and let Guerra finish things out. The right-hander also has four holds in his seven appearances to go with a 1.80 ERA, but his 5:4 K:BB through 10 innings suggests he's been more lucky than good so far. Guerra will continue to work a multi-inning set-up role for now, but he'll get bumped down a peg in the Brewers' bullpen once Jeremy Jeffress (shoulder) is back.

Brewers' Junior Guerra: Effective out of bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra allowed one earned run over 2.1 innings out of the bullpen in Tuesday's victory over the Reds.

Guerra is working exclusively as a reliever this year, and he essentially served as the setup man Tuesday, finishing the sixth inning and pitching the next two frames before Josh Hader came in and closed the door in the ninth. Guerra has been summoned from the bullpen three times this season with good results, giving up just two earned runs over five innings (3.60 ERA) while allowing only four runners to reach base (0.80 WHIP) and picking up three holds. He isn't operating as a true setup man, entering in the sixth inning of each game, but he has been charged with protecting leads, as the Brewers were ahead on the scoreboard in all three appearances.

Brewers' Junior Guerra: Will open in bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra threw a scoreless inning and struck out two batters in Saturday's split-squad game against the Royals.

Guerra started Saturday like he did the last few years for the Brewers, but he will not work in that role when the regular season gets underway and will instead pitch out of the bullpen. Guerra thrived as a reliever near the end of last season, throwing six scoreless innings over five appearances and giving up just three hits while posting an 8:0 K:BB. It's not exactly clear in which situations he will pitch as the regular season gets underway, as the Brewers are still figuring out roles at the back end with Corey Knebel (elbow) and Jeremy Jeffress (shoulder) injured.

Brewers' Junior Guerra: Tabbed for bullpen duty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Craig Counsell said Guerra will be looked at as a reliever in camp, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Guerra made 26 starts for the Brewers in 2018, though he finished the season in the bullpen, notching eight strikeouts across six scoreless innings of relief. Entering his age-34 season, the right-hander will likely work as a swingman in 2019.

Brewers' Junior Guerra: Comes to terms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra agreed to a one-year, $2.225 million deal with the Brewers, avoiding arbitration, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

The veteran righty has salvaged his career with Milwaukee, and was worth almost two wins (1.7 fWAR) last year. His role for 2019 is undetermined, but he will likely work as a swing man and fill-in starter. Guerra turns 34 later this month.

Brewers' Junior Guerra: Role still undetermined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager David Stearns said Guerra will enter spring training without a specific role, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. "We think he's going to be an important member of our pitching staff next year," Stearns added.

Stearns said he didn't want to "pigeon hole" Guerra in as either a starter or reliever, as the veteran right-hander proved successful in both roles in 2018. Guerra posted a 4.09 ERA and 8.7 K/9 across 141 innings (31 appearances, 26 starts) with the Brewers last season and could be a candidate to fill a swingman role in 2019.

Brewers' Junior Guerra: Pitching well in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra threw a scoreless inning out of the bullpen in Wednesday's victory over the Reds.

Wednesday's appearance was just Guerra's third since moving to the bullpen earlier this month, but it's a role he has succeeded in, giving up just one hit while posting a 5:0 K:BB in 3.2 innings. With just a few regular-season games to go, Guerra figures to continue working in relief the rest of the way.

Brewers' Junior Guerra: Moving to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra will work out of the bullpen moving forward, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Guerra has struggled to a 12.15 ERA over his past four starts, three of which the Brewers lost, so he'll head to the bullpen while newly-acquired Gio Gonzalez takes his place in the rotation. The right-hander owns a 4.27 ERA and 128:55 K:BB across 26 starts this season (135 innings). He'll remain an option to start down the stretch should an opportunity arise, though he'll work primarily as a long reliever.

Brewers' Junior Guerra: Surrenders four in short outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra allowed four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out three across three innings as he didn't factor into the decision Sunday against Washington.

Guerra's outing didn't last long, as he was pulled after giving up one run in the second inning and three more in the third. He's been knocked around in his last two starts, allowing 10 runs over 4.1 frames while striking out six. Guerra will look to turn it around his next turn through the rotation, which is slated for Saturday against San Francisco. Following the acquisition of Gio Gonzalez, Guerra could find himself in a bullpen role if he continues to struggle.

Brewers' Junior Guerra: Pummeled again by Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra (6-9) gave up six runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out three over 1.1 innings Tuesday in Cincinnati. He took the loss.

Guerra, who owned a 3.40 ERA after his start against the Padres on Aug. 9, has now given up 20 runs (14 earned) on 27 hits and four walks over his last three starts (10.1 innings). His home start against the Reds on Aug. 21 was more of a product of bad luck and bad defense behind him, but he hasn't given the Brewers much of a chance in two of his last three outings. Zach Davies is set to be recalled from the minors when rosters expand this weekend, so it's possible Guerra will be demoted to the bullpen.

August 22, 2018 01:12 AM
Brewers' Junior Guerra: Allows season-high 10 hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra gave up seven runs (two earned) on 10 hits in 5.1 innings Tuesday against the Reds, striking out six and walking one in a no-decision.

Guerra gave up a season-high in hits and was let down by some defensive errors. Guerra has now gone seven consecutive starts without a win, and has seen his ERA go from 2.79 to 3.72 in that span. Despite having just six wins in 24 starts this year, the right-hander still has an average 1.36 WHIP and a 122:51 K:BB in 130.2 innings. His next start will be a rematch with the Reds in Cincinnati.

August 16, 2018 01:08 PM
Brewers' Junior Guerra: Chased early in loss vs. Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra (6-8) took the loss Wednesday against the Cubs, allowing seven runs (six earned) on nine hits and one walk in 3.2 innings. He struck out two.

Guerra never really settled into this one, allowing a two-run homer to Anthony Rizzo in the first frame before coughing up two more runs in the third and three in the fourth. It was the first time in three starts this month that Guerra failed to register a quality start. He still owns a solid 3.73 ERA on the season and will look to get back on track in his next start, which will come at home against the Reds on Tuesday.
