Padres' Javy Guerra: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra was placed on the 10-day injured list for personal reasons Sunday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The Friars didn't provide a reason for the move, but it apparently isn't related to COVID-19. Guerra hasn't seen game action since Sept. 4, and he will now be unavailable a bit longer.

Padres' Javy Guerra: Collects win in long relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra (1-0) pitched 2.1 scoreless innings, allowing one walk and striking out three to earn the win Friday versus the Astros.

Starter Garrett Richards lasted only 2.1 innings Friday, but Guerra was able to come in and deliver quality pitching in the win. The right-hander had allowed eight runs over his last three appearances, so it was surprising to see him keep a scoreless line over multiple innings. Guerra still carries an 11.17 ERA and 2.38 WHIP with 14 strikeouts and two holds in 10 appearances.

Padres' Javy Guerra: Expected to fill roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra is a "lock" for a spot on the Opening Day roster, AJ Cassavell of reports.

Guerra has many things going for him. First, he enjoyed a solid spring, tossing 5.1 scoreless innings and striking out five across five appearances. Second, his skill set closely matches that of Andres Munoz, who underwent Tommy John surgery Friday and will miss the entire 2020 campaign. Finally, Guerra is out of minor-league options, meaning the Padres will need to keep him on their major-league roster to avoid exposing him to waivers. That all but guarantees the right-hander a place on San Diego's Opening Day roster, though he's unlikely to be used in high-leverage situations at the start of the campaign due to all of the experienced talent joining him in the Padres' bullpen.

Padres' Javy Guerra: Impressing in Cactus League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra has pitched three scoreless innings this spring, allowing two hits and striking out three.

Guerra is perhaps the most intriguing player among a host of talented Padres relievers as the converted shortstop is capable of touching triple-digits with his fastball but has only a season of experience on the mound. The right-hander's chances of making the Opening Day roster are by no means guaranteed, per AJ Cassavell of, but they are enhanced by the fact that he pitched well in the minors last season and no longer has minor-league options.

Padres' Javy Guerra: Shelled in pitching debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra pitched two-thirds of an inning against Arizona on Monday and gave up four runs on five hits while striking out one.

Guerra had previously spent time in the majors as a hitter but was making his big-league debut as a pitcher after switching positions at the start of the season. He came on in the sixth inning and struck out the first batter he faced but then gave up a long home run to Josh Rojas. After retiring Ketel Marte, the next two batters also went deep, and Guerra was pulled after giving up another pair of hits. Despite the rough outing, the 23-year-old should get additional opportunities after showing well in the minors this season.

Padres' Javy Guerra: Receives big-league promotion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra was recalled from Double-A Amarillo on Sunday.

Guerra made the transition to pitching this season and spent the bulk of the season at High-A Lake Elsinore before being promoted to Double-A less than two weeks ago. The 23-year-old has a 3.38 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and a 30:10 K:BB over 21.1 innings between the two levels.

Padres' Javy Guerra: Promoted to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra was moved up to Double-A Amarillo on Tuesday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Guerra was converted to pitching at the start of the season and has flashed enough potential on the mound to warrant the promotion. In 17 relief outings with High-A Lake Elsinore this season, he compiled a 3.71 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 23:5 K:BB while limiting batters to a .213 average in 17 innings.

Padres' Javy Guerra: Moves past oblique issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra is no longer dealing with the effects of the oblique injury that had limited his activity at extended spring training in recent weeks, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Guerra has yet to make his 2019 debut in affiliated ball, but he was always likely to have a delayed start to the campaign after converting from shortstop to pitcher earlier this spring. The oblique injury pushed his timeline for debuting back a bit, but the Padres seemingly remain optimistic about the 23-year-old right-hander's potential as a pitcher. Per Sanders, Guerra's fastball sat around 96-to-99 miles per hour during his most recent simulated game. He could report to High-A Lake Elsinore or Low-A Fort Wayne at some point later this month.

Padres' Javy Guerra: Converting to pitching
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra is converting to the mound this season, Kyle Glaser of Baseball America reports.

Guerra was once an interesting enough shortstop prospect to co-headline a trade for Craig Kimbrel, but his bat has been very poor over the last three seasons in the Padres' organization. He hasn't recorded a wRC+ above 68 at any of his four stops in the minors since the trade. Very early returns from his position switch are promising, as he reportedly sat at 96-100 mph in his first bullpen session, but he'll have to demonstrate control and a viable second pitch before he's considered a true option on the mound.

Padres' Javy Guerra: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Friday.

Guerra had been fighting for a bench spot, but his .136/.208/.182 line didn't help his chances. He made a 13-game big-league debut last season but still has more to prove at the Triple-A level after hitting just .223/.269/.398 for El Paso last season.

Padres' Javy Guerra: Out of lineup again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra is out of the lineup versus the Giants on Wednesday.

Guerra will remain on the pine for a second straight game as Freddy Galvis gets the nod at shortstop. Since being promoted from the minors last week, Guerra has gone 1-for-7 with a walk and three strikeouts across three starts.

Padres' Javy Guerra: Hits bench Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Giants.

Guerra will retreat to the bench after starting the past three games. While the 22-year-old went just 1-for-7 with a trio of strikeouts in those appearances, the Padres seem committed to giving him opportunities down the stretch. Freddy Galvis will slide to shortstop in this one, with Jose Pirela starting at the keystone.

Padres' Javy Guerra: Makes third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra went 0-for-2 with a strikeout in Monday's loss to the Giants.

Guerra was making his third consecutive start at shortstop. The 22-year-old is 1-for-9 with five strikeouts so far in the majors, but the rebuilding Padres seem intent to get a look at him over the final few weeks of the season. Guerra's at-bats will likely continue to come primarily at the expense of Cory Spangenberg and Jose Pirela, with Freddy Galvis shifted over to second base.

Padres' Javy Guerra: Promoted to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Tuesday.

Guerra will join the Padres for the final few weeks of the season after Triple-A El Paso was eliminated from the Pacific Coast League playoffs over the weekend. The 22-year-old hit .223/.269/.398 with 13 homers for the Chihuahuas this season, so he doesn't figure to serve as anything more than infield depth for the big club.

Padres' Javy Guerra: Returns to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra was returned to Triple-A El Paso on Monday.

Guerra spent some time in the big leagues as the Padres' 26th man for the series in Mexico. With the team returning stateside, he'll head back to the minors. He went hitless in two pinch-hit appearances and will look to improve his .244 batting average with the Chihuahuas.

Padres' Javy Guerra: To join Padres on Friday as 26th man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra will be recalled from Triple-A El Paso prior to Friday's series opener against the Dodgers in Mexico, AJ Cassavell of reports.

Guerra will be utilized as the club's 26th man, an addition given to each team throughout this weekend's three-game series since it's being played in Mexico. The 22-year-old infielder is set to make his major-league debut, and will be available for all three contests before heading back to El Paso. Over 25 games at the Triple-A level this season, Guerra is hitting .244/.296/.511 with five home runs and 18 RBI.

Padres' Javier Guerra: Optioned to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra was optioned to Double-A San Antonio on Monday.

Guerra went hitless in his 14 spring training at-bats, so it is no surprise that the Padres sent him back to the minors. The defensive-minded shortstop will try his luck with Double-A San Antonio after slashing .202/.264/.325 with High-A Lake Elsinore last season.

Padres' Javier Guerra: Goes through dry spell to start spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra (undisclosed) is hitless in nine at-bats so far this spring.

The young infielder does have three runs to his credit thanks to some pinch running appearances, but this poor showing at the plate comes as no surprise given his struggles at High-A Lake Elsinore last season. Barring any extraneous circumstances, Guerra will return to the low minor leagues to begin the 2017 campaign for further seasoning.

Padres' Javier Guerra: Added to 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra was added to the Padres' 40-man roster Friday.

The 21-year-old endured some major growing pains in 2016, as he hit just .202/.264/.325 with a 32.7 percent strikeout rate in his first season in the Padres' organization. Guerra also missed the final month with an undisclosed injury and his health is still something of a question mark, but regardless, Guerra is a long way away from the big leagues.

Padres' Javier Guerra: On minor league DL with undisclosed injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerra is on the minor league DL with an undisclosed injury.

It is unclear what is ailing Guerra, but he may be thankful to be out of action, as this has been a completely miserable season for the former top prospect. He slashed .202/.264/.325 with nine home runs and 141 strikeouts in 105 games at High-A Lake Elsinore prior to landing on the DL.
