Javy Guerra has elected free agency.

The 31-year-old hurler pitched fairly well in 21 innings with the Marlins, posting a 3.00 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 12/7 K/BB ratio. He has previous experience closing at the major league level, so he shouldn't have any trouble landing a big league invite to spring training.

Marlins sent RHP Javy Guerra outright to Triple-A New Orleans.

The 31-year-old hurler is now off of the club's 40-man roster. He posted a 3.00 ERA and 1.43 WHIP in 21 innings with the Marlins this season.

Marlins purchased the contract of RHP Javy Guerra from Triple-A New Orleans.

Guerra is receiving a promotion even after putting up a 4.99 ERA over 33 relief appearances for New Orleans. The 31-year-old will be used in the middle of games.

Marlins re-assigned RHPs Javy Guerra, Scott Copeland and Stephen Fife and LHP Kelvin Marte to minor league camp.

You might recognize some of these names, but none of the cuts are a surprise. A former closer, Guerra has struggled to re-establish himself at the big league level the last couple years.

Marlins signed RHP Javy Guerra to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

It's not on the same level of Brad Ziegler and Junichi Tazawa, but the Marlins continue to make bolstering their bullpen a focus. Guerra saved 21 games as a rookie with the Dodgers in 2011, but has struggled to regain his form since then. He'll need a strong showing in spring training to make the club's Opening Day roster.

Angels sent RHP Javy Guerra outright to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Guerra was placed on waivers earlier this week, but there were no takers. This is actually the second time that the Angels have placed him on waivers this season -- and the second time he has passed through unclaimed. Guerra, 30, has not pitched more than 10 innings in a season since 2014.

Angels designated RHP Javy Guerra for assignment.

Guerra has a 5.68 ERA and 1.89 WHIP in 6 1/3 innings this season out of the Angels' bullpen. He was designated for assignment in May and passed through waivers unclaimed. That will probably happen again.

Angels purchased the contract of RHP Javy Guerra from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Guerra was actually designated for assignment in mid-May, but passed through waivers untouched. The 30-year-old right-hander saw three innings of work with the Angels earlier in the season. He last pitched more than 10 innings back in 2014. There is no fantasy intrigue here.

Angels sent RHP Javy Guerra outright to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Guerra passed through waivers unclaimed after being designated for assignment over the weekend. The veteran right-hander will continue to serve as bullpen depth in the minors.

Angels designated RHP Javy Guerra for assignment.

Guerra made four appearances with the big club and didn't retire a batter in either of his last two. He'll surely clear waivers and be returned to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Guerra holds a 2.19 ERA with 14 strikeouts over 12 1/3 relief innings for Salt Lake this season, although he's also walked 10 batters. He'll be used in low-leverage situations.
