Deolis Guerra Elects Free Agency

Right-handed pitcher Deolis Guerra has declared free agency after being outrighted off the Pirates’ 40-man roster last week. He was assigned to Indianapolis, but has decided to go the free agent route instead.

Guerra had a 6.48 ERA in ten appearances with the Pirates this season, striking out 17 batters in 16.2 innings, though that came with a .371 BAA. He had a 1.23 ERA in 25 relief appearances for Indianapolis this season. The Pirates actually lost Guerra on waivers to the Indians during the season, only to get him right back after it was found out that he had a knee injury. After going on the disabled list on August 7th, he didn’t pitch again the rest of the season.

  • I thought he started out okay, if I remember right. I thought there was a period where the middle relief got a little hairy and he came in with a couple nice appearances. Didn’t take long for the league to catch up, though.

    • Yes I thinkmthat is pretty accurate. He seemed to really keep guys off balance with his off speed stuff initially. But had problems as he was used more.

  • I might be slightly annoyed if he signs with Miami.

  • Him gutting out multiple innings and getting the gidp for win in Detroit was great moment
