Chicago White Sox outright reliever Javy Guerra to Triple-A


According to Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago White Sox have outrighted right-handed reliever Javy Guerra off its 40-man roster and assigned him to Triple-A Charlotte, just two days after claiming him off waivers from the Dodgers.

The 28-year-old Guerra was selected by Los Angeles in the fourth round of the 2004 draft, and has made appearances for the big league club in each of the previous three seasons, including an impressive stretch from 2011-12.

In 101 career Major League games, the righty has posted a 4-5 record with a 2.90 earned run average. He also tallied a career-high 21 saves as a rookie with the Dodgers back in 2011.

Last year, however, he pitched just 10 2/3 innings for Los Angeles, and spent most of the campaign in the club’s minor league system.
