Deolis Guerra: Let go by Oakland
The Athletics released Guerra on Aug. 5.
Signed to a minor-league deal this past season, Guerra spent the first half of the 2023 campaign completing his recovery from April 2022 Tommy John surgery. He began a rehab assignment in the rookie-level Arizona Complex League in late June before returning from Triple-A Las Vegas' 60-day injured list in early July. He made just three appearances for Las Vegas before returning to the 7-day IL on July 17 and then being cut loose three weeks later. The 34-year-old reliever has previously made 134 MLB appearances, but none since 2021.... See More ... See Less

Triple-A Las Vegas placed Guerra on its 7-day injured list July 17 with an unspecified injury.
After completing his recovery from April 2022 Tommy John surgery, Guerra made his season debut for Las Vegas on July 4. The right-hander made three relief appearances before returning to the IL two weeks later, though it's unclear if he was deactivated due to a setback with his surgically repaired elbow or because of an unrelated injury....

Athletics' Deolis Guerra: Returns to Oakland
Guerra (elbow) signed a minor-league contract with the Athletics on Monday.
Guerra was a fairly prominent contributor out of the Oakland bullpen in 2021, maintaining a 4.11 ERA and 1.11 WHIP across 65.2 innings. However, Guerra underwent Tommy John surgery in April and missed the entire 2022 season. He was non-tendered by the club earlier in the offseason and will now have to earn back his spot on the 40-man roster once healthy.... See More ... See Less
Deolis Guerra: Non-tendered by A's
The A's declined to tender Guerra (elbow) a contract for 2023.
Guerra underwent Tommy John surgery in April and missed the entire 2022 season. The righty is a journeyman at 33 years old, but he pitched well for the A's in 2021 (4.11 ERA, 1.11 WHIP) and there will likely be many teams interested in seeing how he looks post-surgery.... See More ... See Less

Guerra underwent reconstructive surgery on the UCL in his right elbow Wednesday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The A's announced Guerra's elbow procedure last week, but it wasn't previously specified as Tommy John surgery. The 32-year-old will miss the rest of the season and likely the first half of the 2023 campaign while going through his recovery and rehab.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Deolis Guerra: Surgery scheduled
Guerra will undergo elbow surgery April 13, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Guerra experienced forearm tightness in late March and was later diagnosed with a UCL injury. The specifics of his procedure are still unclear.

Athletics' Deolis Guerra: Slated to undergo surgery
Guerra (forearm) will undergo surgery that will force him to begin the season on the injured list, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Guerra recently received a second opinion on his forearm tightness, and he'll be forced to miss time due to his procedure. While a timetable for Guerra's return hasn't yet been revealed, Domingo Acevedo, Sam Moll and A.J. Puk are candidates to take on setup duties to begin the regular season.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Deolis Guerra: Receiving second opinion
Manager Mark Kotsay said Thursday that Guerra (forearm) will receive a second opinion, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Guerra was evaluated for forearm tightness Tuesday, but he'll get an additional diagnosis before the team determines the next steps in his recovery process. The right-hander was in line to serve as one of the team's top setup men in front of closer Lou Trivino to begin the regular season, but his early-season availability will likely depend on the results of his second examination....

Athletics' Deolis Guerra: Dealing with tight forearm
Guerra is considered day-to-day after he experienced forearm tightness coming out of his Cactus League debut Wednesday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The Athletics have paused Guerra's throwing program for the time being, with a decision on his next steps likely coming Tuesday, when he's scheduled to be re-evaluated. If he moves past the forearm issue and is deemed ready to go for Opening Day, Guerra is expected to serve as one of the main setup men for Lou Trivino, who is the most likely candidate to begin the season as the Athletics' closer. In 53 appearances for Oakland last season spanning 65.2 innings, Guerra submitted a 4.11 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 62:20 K:BB.... See More ... See Less

Guerra appeared in a career-high 53 games last season, compiling a 4.11 ERA and 1.11 WHIP while striking out 62 over 65.2 innings. He will likely operate as a middle-relief option for the squad in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Deolis Guerra: Collecting some wins
Guerra, who secured his fourth win Friday against the Rangers, has a pair of victories overall in his last five appearances despite posting a 5.68 ERA over that span.
The inflated ERA in the 6.1-inning sample is largely a result of Guerra yielding three earned runs without retiring a batter Sept. 2 against the Tigers, but he's otherwise been impressive in a variety of roles for manager Bob Melvin. The veteran right-hander has a solid 3.56 ERA and 1.02 WHIP overall in 55.2 innings across 44 appearances, although his one hold and complete absence of save chances has dinged his overall fantasy value....

Athletics' Deolis Guerra: Earns relief win
Guerra (2-1) won Sunday's 3-1 triumph over the Yankees, allowing a walk with a strikeout in the eighth inning.
Guerra entered a tie game in the eighth inning, retired the heart of New York's lineup and fell in line for the win when Oakland took the lead in the bottom of the frame. The victory is Guerra's first since April 21. He's assembled an impressive August resume with a 1.69 ERA in 10.2 innings across nine appearances.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Deolis Guerra: Keeps rolling Friday
Guerra fired 1.2 scoreless innings in a loss to the Yankees on Friday, allowing a hit and recording a strikeout.
The right-hander has been a mostly reliable bullpen asset for manager Bob Melvin this season, and Friday's scoreless effort brought his ERA and WHIP in August down to 1.86 and 0.72, respectively. Guerra has an elite 14:2 K:BB over that 9.2-inning sample as well, but the fact he's recorded just one hold on the season does cap his fantasy value to an extent.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Deolis Guerra: Still in impressive groove
Guerra has seven straight scoreless appearances spanning 6.2 innings, a stretch during which he's allowed four hits, generated a 7:1 K:BB and garnered one hold.
Guerra had allowed a pair of earned runs apiece in back-to-back outings prior to his current streak, so the string of strong performances have been particularly heartening. However, despite his solid 3.22 ERA and impressive 0.91 WHIP, Guerra's fantasy value is primarily limited to deep formats, considering he has only one victory and hold apiece across 28 appearances....

Athletics' Deolis Guerra: Third straight scoreless effort
Guerra fired a scoreless eighth inning in a loss to the Rangers on Friday, issuing one walk.
The veteran reliever is picking up work on a regular basis after a lull for much of June, as he's already logged four appearances in July. Guerra gave up two earned runs apiece in back-to-back outings June 27 and July 1, but he's bounced back to post three straight scoreless efforts over 2.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Deolis Guerra: Sees long-overdue action
Guerra fired a perfect seventh inning in a loss to the Rangers on Monday, recording one strikeout.
The right-hander saw his first action since May 31 and delivered his fourth consecutive scoreless appearance. Except for a couple of stumbles, Guerra has been a pleasant surprise during his first Athletics campaign, forging a 1-1 mark, 3.20 ERA and 0.91 WHIP across 25.1 innings spanning 17 appearances....

Athletics' Deolis Guerra: Impressive in long relief
Guerra fired 2.1 perfect innings during which he recorded three strikeouts in an extra-inning loss to the Mariners on Monday.
Guerra got seven valuable outs after starter James Kaprielian was chased following just 3.2 innings on the hill. The veteran right-hander has been a productive addition to the Athletics' bullpen, posting a 1-1 mark, 3.33 ERA and 0.95 WHIP across 24.1 innings while logging more than one frame in half of his 16 appearances....

Athletics' Deolis Guerra: Suffers loss Sunday
Guerra (1-1) allowed one run on one hit and a walk over an inning as he took the loss Sunday against the Angels.
Guerra surrendered a leadoff walk in the eighth and eventually allowed that runner to score to give the Angels a 6-5 lead after a pair of sacrifices and a single advanced him home. The 32-year-old righty owns a 4.12 ERA and 19:8 K:BB over 19.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
