New Britain, CT - The New Britain
Rock Cats Baseball Club,
the Double-A Eastern League Affiliate of the Minnesota Twins, announced
that RHP Deolis Guerra has been
promoted to Triple-A Rochester. He
left the Rock Cats on the current road trip and will meet the Red Wings
their road trip in Buffalo, New
This will be Guerra's second time in
League as he pitched five games (four starts) at Rochester in 2010. He has spent parts of the
past four years
pitching for the New Britain Rock Cats in the Eastern League. The Rock Cats will not
fill his spot on the
roster today and will be three players short of the EL maximum 25 for
game at Richmond.
Guerra, 23, has been one of the best
Rock Cats relievers
this season, going 2-0 with a 0.71 ERA (1 ER 12.2 IP) in seven relief
appearances at New Britain. He
is on the
Twins 40-man major league roster and is the only player left in the
system in the trade that sent P Johan
Santana to the New York Mets in February 2, 2008. In four seasons in the
Eastern League, Guerra
went 18-20 with a 5.51 ERA in 75 games and 40 starts.
He moved to the bullpen last season and
pitched much better in relief.
