Washington Nationals sign Javy Guerra to minor league deal

According to an early morning report on Twitter by The Athletic’s Evan Drellich, Javy Guerra will be back in the Washington Nationals’ organization in 2020, on a minor league deal that will pay the 34-year-old reliever, “... $1 million with another potential $500K in performance bonuses if in [the] majors.”

Guerra was selected off waivers by the Nationals last May, and he put up a 4.86 ERA, a 4.50 FIP, 12 walks, and 42 Ks in 40 games and 53 2⁄3 IP for the World Series champions.

The nine-year veteran was designated for assignment by the Nationals in late July before he was outrighted to Triple-A, and then quickly called back after injuries created a need in the major league bullpen.
