January 26, 2019
Guerra signed a minor-league contract with the Blue Jays and will be among 15 non-roster players invited to big-league spring training, John Lott of The Athletic reports.
There had been murmurs earlier this month that Guerra and the Blue Jays had agreed to a deal, but Toronto didn't acknowledge the signing until releasing its non-roster invitee list Saturday. The 33-year-old Guerra has 31 saves to his name in the majors, but he's mostly flitted between Triple-A and the big leagues for the better part of the past six years. Even if he earns a promotion to the 40-man roster at some point, Guerra likely wouldn't have much job security in the Toronto bullpen.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
The White Sox nabbed Guerra off waivers in March, added him to the active roster in May, and he served in an unimportant middle relief role for the rest of the year. His average fastball velocity was only down a few ticks from his rookie season, when he closed for the Dodgers, and he has added an effective new cutter to his repertoire since joining the Sox's pitching staff. However, his strikeout (7.4 K/9) and walk rates (3.9 BB/9) are both unimpressive for his middle relief standing, and the addition of David Robertson via free agency all but guarantees that Guerra won't be tasked with any save situations in 2015.
With a 5.84 ERA at the time, Guerra was removed from the closer role in favor of Kenley Jansen on May 7 and he failed to notch a single save the rest of the season. However, Guerra responded by posting a 1.38 ERA in 32.2 innings the rest of the way after losing his closer role, but did miss some time with knee and oblique injuries. He managed to add to his medical chart by undergoing a minor shoulder procedure in November, but all signs point to him being 100 percent well before he's due to report to spring training. Expect Guerra back in a setup role in 2013, though he's probably fourth in the pecking order for saves.
When Jonathan Broxton went down with an injury and Hong-Chih Kuo and Vicente Padilla had their own issues, it was ultimately Guerra who stepped up and filled the closer role for the Dodgers. In 46.2 innings, Guerra saved 21 games with a 2.31 ERA and 1.179 WHIP. His 7.33 K/9IP and 3.47 BB/9IP were merely average, so Guerra likely won't be guaranteed the closer job headed into spring training. To maintain that role, he'll have to beat out Kenley Jansen, who seemingly struck out every batter he faced last year (actually a 16.10 K/9IP). Regardless, Guerra will have an important role in a Broxton-less pen this year.
Guerra finished a combined 6-2 with a 2.60 ERA in 51 relief appearances between Low-A Great Lakes and Double-A Chattanooga last season, numbers good enough for the Dodgers to add him to the 40-man roster this winter. He could compete for a bullpen spot this spring, but will have limited fantasy value.
