Guerra (1-1) blew a save chance and picked up the loss against the Dodgers on Wednesday, He allowed two unearned runs on one hit in a third of an inning in a 3-2 extra-inning loss.
Guerra was victimized by himself as he slipped while fielding a bunt and made a wild throw from his knees, allowing the tying run to score. Two batters later, the game was over and two members of Arizona's closer by committee -- Guerra and Kevin Ginkel an inning earlier -- were tagged with blown saves. It was Guerra's second blown save.
Guerra (1-0) struck out one over a scoreless inning to pick up the win in Thursday's walk-off victory over the Astros.
Guerra was the pitcher of record when Kole Calhoun delivered a two-run, walk-off double in the bottom of the ninth. The right-hander hasn't been overpowering, but Guerra continues to get outs and hasn't allowed a hit or run through 5.2 innings.
Guerra struck out one over a scoreless inning in Sunday's 3-0 loss to the Dodgers.
Guerra logged his fourth scoreless appearance to start the season with all outings in low-leverage situations. He's yet to allow a hit while striking out two and walking two over 3.2 innings.
Guerra (illness) joined Arizona's summer camp Wednesday.
Guerra previously tested positive for COVID-19, but he has reportedly since tested negative twice, clearing the way for him to join the Diamondbacks. The veteran righty signed with Arizona over the offseason after notching a 3.55 ERA across 83.2 innings of relief with the Brewers in 2019.
Guerra has tested positive for COVID-19, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
Manager Torey Lovullo revealed Sunday that Guerra and fellow reliever Silvino Bracho tested positive for coronavirus, but both relievers are reportedly asymptomatic. Under MLB protocol, Guerra will need to test negative twice before he's allowed to take part in the team's activities.
Guerra is out of minor-league options, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
Guerra came over to Arizona during the offseason after pitching well out of the Brewers bullpen in 2019. The 35-year-old seems an unlikely candidate to end up in the minors, but if the Diamondbacks want to go that way, they will need to expose Guerra to waivers. He pitched 5.2 scoreless Cactus League innings, giving up one hit and two walks while striking out four.
Guerra agreed Sunday with the Diamondbacks on a one-year contract that includes a club option for 2021, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Guerra has 60 games of MLB starting experience under his belt, but the Diamondbacks will presumably keep him in a bullpen role after he worked exclusively for Milwaukee in that capacity in 2019 and performed effectively. Despite posting a 3.55 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 77:36 K:BB in 83.2 innings, Guerra was still non-tendered by Milwaukee earlier this month, but his deal with Arizona will likely keep him somewhere in the neighborhood of the $3.5 million he would have earned in arbitration. As Rosenthal notes, the Diamondbacks will still maintain control of Guerra for three seasons, even though the terms of his contract only pertain to 2020 and 2021.
Guerra was non-tendered by the Brewers on Monday.
Guerra has been one of the more reliable arms out of Milwaukee's bullpen over the last two seasons, but he'll head to free agency following Monday's roster moves. He posted a 3.55 ERA with a 77:36 K:BB over 83.2 innings a season ago.
Guerra picked up his ninth win of the season in Tuesday's victory over the Marlins.
Guerra threw a clean seventh inning before allowing the Marlins to tie the game in the eighth on a solo home run by Starlin Castro, but he was able to avoid any further damage and notch the win when the Brewers scored a run of their own in the ninth. Guerra allowed an earned run in three of his last four outings, but he has been stellar since the All-Star break, going 6-3 with a 3.00 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, and 29:13 K:BB in 30 innings over 27 relief appearances.
Guerra retired the lone hitter he faced in Wednesday's 5-3 rain-shortened win over the Cardinals to secure his third save of the season.
Manager Craig Counsell didn't actually tab Guerra for the save chance, as closer Josh Hader was preparing to warm up for the ninth before Mother Nature intervened and resulted in the game being called midway through the eighth inning. Incredibly, Guerra has now recorded either a hold or save or factored into the decision in each of his last 11 relief appearances, racking up four wins during that span.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Guerra will likely miss the mid-week series against the Cardinals. Jake Petricka was recalled from Triple-A San Antonio in a corresponding move.
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.
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.
