What’s Up with the Angels and Spin Rates?

A few months ago, I came across a FanGraphs post by Jeff Sullivan (You can read it here). In it, Sullivan showed how the Angels were taking a cheap gamble on Andrew Bailey due to his extremely high spin rate. It was one of the first moves of the offseason for the team and it made sense since the Halos had the top defensive shortstop in all of baseball. But as the offseason unraveled...

Guerra Clears Waivers, Accepts AAA Assignment

Deolis Guerra has passed through waivers and accepted an assignment to AAA Salt Lake City. Guerra was DFA’d earlier this month to make room for new reliever Austin Adams. At the time, the move was questionable, as Guerra was a key cog in last year’s bullpen, throwing 53.1 innings with an ERA of 3.21. Now, the move looks great as the Halos will have both a flamethrowing righty...

Deolis Guerra accepts outright assignment, will start season at triple-A Salt Lake

Yesterday, the Angels reported that Angels’ righty reliever Deolis Guerra had cleared waivers and outrighted to the AAA team. Today, we find out that he has accepted his assignment and has reported to spring training. This makes the Austin Adams move look that much better. Now the Angels not only have an intriguing arm with high velocity, but they also get to keep the capable...

Deolis Guerra goes unclaimed on waivers, outrighted to triple-A

This is surprising on so many levels. In his first season as an Angel, Deolis Guerra pitched quite alright: 53.1 innings, 1.11 WHIP, 3.21 ERA/3.77 FIP. His control was impeccable, as noted by his comically low 1.18 BB/9. Five days ago, Guerra was designated for assignment in a trade that brought RHP Austin Adams over from Cleveland — and the decision to DFA him was a bit puzzling...

Angels Acquire RHP Adams from Cleveland, DFA Guerra

The Angels have acquired right handed reliever Austin Adams from the Cleveland Indians for a player to be named later or cash. RHP Deolis Guerra has been designated for assignment as a result. Adams threw 18.1 innings last season for the American League champs and had an ERA of 9.82. He was far more successful in 2015, throwing 33.1 innings of 3.78 ERA ball. He has a career ERA of...

Angels designate Deolis Guerra to make room for newly acquired Austin Adams

Adams was picked up from Cleveland on Friday In what is somewhat of a confusing move (for me), Billy Eppler grabbed Austin Adams from Cleveland today and DFA’d Deolis Guerra to make room. In return, the Angels will send a player to be named later or cash back to the Indians. Guerra was one of the more solid pieces that came out of a rather lackluster bullpen in 2016, putting...

Angels call up Deolis Guerra, DFA Al Alburquerque

ANAHEIM -- One day after optioning A.J. Achter, the Angels called up another reliever, Deolis Guerra, from Triple-A Salt Lake. “Right now, he’s a guy showing he has a major-league arm, and he’s showing he’s made some adjustments to come up...

Pirates' Guerra gets first career win

  Deolis Guerra didn't mind waiting 14 innings to collect his first career win. Besides, after 10 years in the Minors, what's a couple of hours or extra innings? "Unbelievable, amazing. It feels great," Guerra told "It's a moment I've waited for my whole life, and it finally came true." And the moment sure came at a time when the Pirates needed it. It's not as if Guerra...

Pirates' Guerra finally gets his call

After nine long years in the Minor Leagues, Deolis Guerra has found himself on a Major League roster. When the Pirates put Rob Scahill on the 15-day disabled list, Guerra – a right-handed reliever – was called upon to take his place. “I was having a good season down here (at Indianapolis), but I wasn't expecting the call today because this ballclub is doing such a great...
