Twins Designate Matt Guerrier For Assignment

The Twins have designated reliever Matt Guerrier for assignment, according to Rhett Bollinger of (via Twitter). His roster spot will go to fellow righty Ryan Pressly.

Guerrier, a 35-year-old righty, had been fairly steady for Minnesota for much of the season, though he saw his ERA rise by more than a full run after last night’s rough outing. He still sports a 3.86 ERA over 28 innings, though he’s averaging only 3.9 K/9 (by far the lowest in his career) against 3.2 BB/9. Guerrier, who has seen time in each of the last 11 MLB seasons, was signed to a minor league deal over the offseason.

If you would have told me in spring training that of the 3 former Twins making a comeback with the team–Bartlett, Kubel, and Guerrier–that Guerrier would have outlasted the other two, I would have said “Sure, that sounds plausible.”

Right before he imploded last night, the Twins announcers were talking about how Guerrier could be part of the team’s plans for 2015. I nearly did a spit take and then laughed heartily.

Let’s hope this puts an end to the reunion tours.

Doubt it, with Cuddyer and Torii being free agents this off-season we are getting the band back together.
