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).

Guerra (personal) has rejoined the White Sox and will be activated Saturday, the Chicago Sun-Times' Daryl Van Schouwen reports.

He will miss his sixth game Friday after being placed on the bereavement list last weekend, but should return to his mid-inning duties in Chicago's bullpen on Saturday.

Guerra was placed on the bereavement list Saturday, Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports.

Guerra will be forced to miss a minimum of three games following his placement on the bereavement list, and Eric Surkamp will be up to fortify the bullpen in the meantime. While Guerra has given up just three runs in his last 12 appearances, it does not look like he will get a chance to close for the White Sox this season.

After bailing the White Sox out in the eighth, Javy Guerra took a blown save and a loss while giving up two runs in the ninth Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Jake Petricka struggled after coming in with two outs in the eighth, retiring none of the four hitters he faced. That led to Guerra coming on with men on second and third and two outs in a one-run game. He got Mike Carp to ground out, but then he hit a batter, gave up an RBI double and surrendered a game-winning single in the bottom of the ninth. It'd seem to bode well for Zach Putnam getting the White Sox's next save chance.

Guerra had been claimed off waivers from the Dodgers on Wednesday, but he won't be part of the White Sox' Opening Day roster. The 28-year-old has enjoyed some success in the majors in the past but held a 6.75 ERA over just nine appearances for Los Angeles last season.

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the Dodgers are receiving significant interest in Javy Guerra and are expected to trade him soon.

Guerra was designated for assignment earlier in the week to clear a spot on the 40-man roster. The former closer has an electric arm, and should appeal to many teams with deficiencies in the back end of their bullpens.
