According to the team, they have claimed right-handed relief pitcher Deolis Guerra off waivers from the Milwaukee Brewers; as a corresponding move to make room on the 40-man roster, they have designated fellow right-hander JD Hammer for assignment.

Guerra, 30, is a four-year veteran reliever that has played for the Pittsburgh Pirates (2015), Los Angeles Angels (2016-17) and Brewers (2019).
