Guerra was outrighted from the 40-man roster Saturday, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Marlins removed four players from their 40-man roster Saturday, and the 31-year-old relief pitcher was one of them. Over the course of 16 appearances with the big-league team this season, Guerra allowed just seven earned runs (3.00 ERA) and recorded a 12:7 K:BB in 21 innings.

Guerra was promoted to Miami on Friday, Clark Spencer of The Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Guerra was recently designated for assignment by the Marlins on Aug. 22, but will be re-added to the 40-man roster and placed on the active roster heading into this weekend's series with Philadelphia. Over four appearances with the club this year, Guerra has posted a 6.35 ERA and 1.59 WHIP in 5.2 innings, and figures to serve as added depth out of the bullpen.

Guerra was outrighted to Triple-A New Orleans on Wednesday, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

During limited use with the big club this season, Guerra has been a liability on the mound. Over four games (5.2 innings) he's allowed four earned runs on five walks and four hits, with two of said hits being home runs. He'll return to New Orleans, where he's pitched to the tune of a 4.99 ERA and 1.32 WHIP this season.

The Marlins designated Guerra for assignment Tuesday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Since saving 21 games and turning in a 2.31 ERA over 46.2 innings for the Dodgers during his debut season in 2011, Guerra's career has gone steadily downhill, with the 31-year-old right-hander bouncing around between four organizations to limited success. Despite posting mediocre numbers in the Pacific Coast League earlier this season, Guerra earned the call to a decimated Marlins bullpen in August and made just four appearances with the big club, yielding four runs over 5.2 innings. It's expected that he'll go unclaimed off waivers and remain in the Marlins organization as a depth reliever at Triple-A New Orleans.

Guerra has been reassigned to minor league camp, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

The news shouldn't come as a major surprise. Guerra was signed to a minor league contract this offseason and has struggled in Grapefruit League play, posting a 9.00 ERA in three appearances. The right-hander is likely to begin the 2017 season at Triple-A New Orleans after spending last season in the Angels' system.

Guerra signed a minor league deal with the Marlins on Saturday that includes an invitation to spring training, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports.

EDGE Analysis

Miami has been actively trying to improve the bullpen this offseason, but Guerra is more of a depth addition than an impact signing. Last season he was mediocre at Triple-A and in the majors for the Angels. He will compete for a low-leverage job this spring.

Guerra was designated for assignment Tuesday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Guerra had his contract purchased by the Angels last week, but he struggled mightily in seven appearances, posting a 5.68 ERA and walking seven batters. The 30-year-old has been much more productive in the minors this season, so he may get another shot in the majors if he can straighten himself out again at Triple-A Salt Lake.

Guerra had his contract purchased by the Angels on Wednesday, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Angels made a pitching swap Wednesday by optioning Chris Jones to Triple-A Salt Lake and purchasing Guerra's contract. Guerra has made four appearances with the Angels this season, working a 9.00 ERA with four strikeouts and four walks across 3.0 innings of work. He is only two years removed from a 42-appearance season in which he notched a 2.91 ERA as a member of the White Sox.

Guerra cleared waivers Monday and was outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake.

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.
