Competitive Edge Analysis

Guerra was designated for assignment by the Angels on Thursday after failing to record an out over his previous two appearances where he faced a total of six batters. At 30 years old, the righty will need numerous positive outings at Salt Lake before a return to the Angels can even be entertained.

Guerra was called up to the majors from Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday, Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

With the myriad of injuries to the Angels pitching staff as of late, they were in dire need of pitching depth at the major league level, allowing Guerra to get a callup. The 30-year-old reliever pitched very effectively as a member of the Salt Lake bullpen, posting a 2.19 ERA with 14 strikeouts in 12.1 innings pitched, although he'll likely slot into lower-leverage situations during his time with Los Angeles.

Guerra has been suspended 50 games for testing positive for a drug of abuse, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The 50-game ban will take Guerra out of action for most of Triple-A Charlotte's remaining schedule -- the affiliate will have just nine games remaining when he's eligible to return. Guerra, 29, has given up seven earned runs in just 3.2 innings with Charlotte this year, two more than he allowed in 19.1 innings with the team last season.

Guerra (shoulder) is slated to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte, Doug Padilla of ESPN Chicago reports.

Guerra landed on the disabled list with shoulder inflammation and though he appears to be progressing well, he won't be ready to be activated Tuesday when he's first eligible. The righty will likely need to pitch in a few Triple-A games before being deemed ready to rejoin the big league club, but there's no exact timetable as to how long that will take.

Guerra was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday retroactive to April 13 with shoulder inflammation.

Guerra started the season pitching relatively well, allowing two hits and a walk but no runs over 1.2 innings in three outings. However, shoulder inflammation was likely part of the reason he hasn't appeared in a game since April 13, and now it will cause him to move to the disabled list.

Guerra agreed to a one-year, $937,500 contract with the White Sox to avoid arbitration, Sportsnet's Ben Nicholson-Smith reports.

Guerra figures to fill a middle-relief role, as Jacob Petricka and Zach Putnam will likely be ahead of Guerra in the right-handed bullpen pecking order, behind closer David Robertson.

Guerra threw two scoreless innings of relief against the A's on Monday to earn the win.

He did not allow a base runner over his 22 pitches, creating three outs in the air, two on the ground, and one via the K. Guerra has been one of the team's more reliable late-inning options this season, so he could poach a win or two more down the stretch if the White Sox score a few more late wins (as they did Monday).
