    Matt Guerrier began this week with a nice-looking 2.67 ERA in 26 appearances for the Twins, but a 12/8 K/BB ratio in 27 innings showed that he was anything but impressive.

  2. Twins sign Matt Guerrier

    St Louis Cardinals v Chicago Cubs

    Matt Guerrier, who spent 2004-2010 in Minnesota’s bullpen, has returned to the Twins on a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training. Guerrier was one of the most underrated setup men in baseball during his first go-around with the Twins, which earned him a three-year, $12 million deal from the Dodgers as a free…

  3. Rosenthal: Dan Haren, Erik Bedard, Brendan Ryan and Matt Lindstrom have cleared waivers

    Loads of baseball players are passed through waivers every August and we only wind up with a handful of acutal waiver trades, but here’s the word anyway from FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal: Cleared waivers, can be traded to any team: #Nationals’ Haren, #Astros’ Bedard, #WhiteSox’s Lindstrom, #Cubs’ Guerrier, #Mariners’ Ryan. 1/2 — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal)…

  4. Matt Guerrier facing 6-8 month recovery for elbow injury

    Aug 14, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    St Louis Cardinals v Chicago Cubs

    Matt Guerrier is seeking a second opinion after being diagnosed with a torn flexor muscle in his right forearm, according to Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago. Guerrier briefly pitched well for the Cubs after coming over from the Dodgers in the Carlos Marmol contract dump, but was shut down with elbow problems and placed on…

  5. Cubs place Matt Guerrier on 60-day DL with elbow injury

    Aug 8, 2013, 1:46 PM EDT

    St Louis Cardinals v Chicago Cubs

    Chicago got Matt Guerrier back in the Carlos Marmol contract dump, but for a second straight season the veteran reliever is being shut down with elbow problems. Guerrier has been placed on the 60-day disabled list, which means he won’t be eligible to pitch again this season and will hit the open market as a…

  6. Unclaimed on waivers, Carlos Marmol accepts Dodgers’ assignment to Triple-A

    Jul 4, 2013, 1:29 PM EDT

    Carlos Marmol

    As soon as the Dodgers acquired Carlos Marmol from the Cubs earlier this week they placed him on waivers and predictably no other team wanted anything to do with the $5 million or remaining on his contract. Marmol passed through waivers unclaimed and was outrighted off the 40-man roster, accepting an assignment to Triple-A. By…

  7. Dodgers acquire Carlos Marmol from Cubs for Matt Guerrier

    Jul 2, 2013, 2:11 PM EDT

    Carlos Marmol

    In a swap of relievers who were designated for assignment, Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago reports that the Cubs have traded Carlos Marmol and about $200,000 in international signing bonus money to the Dodgers for Matt Guerrier. Marmol certainly has a lot more upside than Guerrier, who’s been little more than middle relief-caliber since signing…

  8. Dodgers designate Matt Guerrier for assignment

    Guerrier_Matt

    Back in December of 2010 the Dodgers signed Matt Guerrier to a three-year, $12 million deal as a free agent and now two-and-a-half seasons into that contract they designated the right-hander for assignment. Guerrier missed much of last season with an elbow injury and has struggled this season with a 4.80 ERA and 21/12 K/BB…

  9. Dodgers lose, clinch postseason spot for Cardinals

    Oct 3, 2012, 1:51 AM EDT

    Mark Ellis, Pablo Sandoval

    The Dodgers’ season is over, and one can only hope manager Don Mattingly learned a couple of lessons tonight. The Giants won 4-3 in L.A. on Tuesday night to end the Dodgers’ playoff hopes and clinch the second wild card for the Cardinals. St. Louis could have clinched with a win earlier in the evening,…

  10. Dodgers place Matt Guerrier on DL with elbow tendinitis

    Apr 25, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Guerrier_Matt

    Matt Guerrier has been one of baseball’s most durable relievers for the past seven years, averaging 65 appearances and 74 innings per season, but now at age 33 he’s on the disabled list. Guerrier was diagnosed with elbow tendinitis and the Dodgers shelved him while calling up left-hander Michael Antonini from Triple-A, where he had…

  11. Running down the rosters: Los Angeles Dodgers

    Feb 15, 2012, 5:56 PM EDT

    Clayton Kershaw, Matt Kemp

    Quantity over quality was the theme of the Dodgers’ winter. The team signed nine free agents for this year’s roster, none of whom will cost more than $4 million in 2012. Let’s dig right in… Rotation Clayton Kershaw Chad Billingsley Ted Lilly Aaron Harang Chris Capuano Bullpen Javy Guerra Kenley Jansen Matt Guerrier Todd Coffey…

  12. How many relievers do the Dodgers plan on carrying this year?

    Feb 3, 2012, 6:36 PM EDT

    Kenley Jansen

    The Dodgers just spent another $1.3 million to add Todd Coffey to what already appeared to be a full bullpen. It’s not a bad deal — worse relievers have signed for more money this winter — but I’m not sure what they felt they needed him for. The Dodgers already have the following relievers on…

  13. Dodgers sign Matt Guerrier to three-year, $12 million contract

    Matt Guerrier has been linked to Boston throughout the offseason, but Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein is said to be against the idea of handing out three-year contracts to relievers and Erik Boland of New York Newsday reports that Guerrier has agreed to a three-year deal with the Dodgers believed to be worth $12…

  14. Red Sox targeting Twins trio of Fuentes, Crain, and Guerrier

    Dec 13, 2010, 11:16 AM EDT

    Apparently general manager Theo Epstein and company really liked Minnesota’s bullpen down the stretch, because Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com reports that the Red Sox “have their sights focused on” Twins free agent relievers Brian Fuentes, Jesse Crain, and Matt Guerrier. None would require giving up a draft pick to sign, as Guerrier is the only…

  15. Twins offer arbitration to Pavano, Hudson, and Crain

    carl-pavano-mustache-pitching

    Last night was the deadline to offer departing free agents arbitration to receive compensatory draft picks if they sign elsewhere and the Twins did so to Carl Pavano, Orlando Hudson, and Jesse Crain, but chose not to tender arbitration offers to Matt Guerrier, Jon Rauch, and Brian Fuentes. Pavano and Crain were no-brainers, as they’ll…
