The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim signed free-agent RP Javy Guerra (White Sox) to a minor-league deal Wednesday, Feb. 10. Guerra served a 50-game drug suspension during the 2015 season.
Fantasy Tip: If Guerra makes the team he could see an occasional save due to his past history as a closer, but more than likely he'll be a late-innings setup man who will only help those in the deepest of AL-only rotisserie formats looking for help in the ERA, WHIP and holds categories.

Chicago White Sox RP Javy Guerra has been placed on the bereavement list. In a corresponding move, RP Eric Surkamp has been called up from Triple-A Charlotte.

Chicago White Sox RP Zach Putnam (shoulder) was placed on the disabled list Thursday, July 24, with right shoulder inflammation. In a corresponding move, RP Andre Rienzo was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte.
Fantasy Tip: Putnam was getting looks in the ninth inning, so with him out of the committee, Jake Petricka should see more opportunities. Javy Guerra and Daniel Webb could also get an occasional chance. Matt Lindstrom should take over closing duties, when he returns from his ankle injury. However, Perticka is an immediate add, with Guerra and Webb more speculative additions, for those chasing saves.

Chicago White Sox RP Javy Guerra allowed two earned runs and two hits in a blown save and loss against the Boston Red Sox Wednesday, July 9. It was Guerra's second blown save of the season.
Fantasy Tip: Guerra's ERA ballooned from 1.86 to 2.70 as a result of the poor appearance, which certainly doesn't help those fantasy owners in rotisserie formats who use him for his solid ERA and WHIP.

Chicago White Sox RP Ronald Belisario will no longer be the team's closer, according to manager Robin Ventura. RP Jake Petricka received the save Friday, June 27, and is an option to close. Ventura has not decided who will fill the role at this point.
Fantasy Tip: Petricka likely will be in the mix since he got the chance Friday. Zach Putnam and Javy Guerra could also receive save chances in the upcoming weeks. Matt Lindstrom (ankle) could also be back in a few weeks and take over the role. Owners could consider adding one of them at this point but could also wait to see if Ventura names a closer.
