Debut Details
May 17, in a 5-1 loss to the Giants. The last of three pitchers, he allowed one run on three hits, walking one in two innings of work. Coming on to start the eighth inning with the Padres down 4-0, he got the first big league batter he faced, Buster Posey, to fly out and Brandon Belt to ground out before allowing his first hit, a single to left by Hunter Pence. Brandon Crawford followed with an RBI double before being thrown out at third to end the inning. Guerrero pitched a scoreless ninth despite walking the pitcher, Madison Bumgarner, to lead things off. After Angel Pagan flew out, Denard Span singled to put two on with no outs but Guerrero got Joe Panik to ground out and Matt Duffy to fly out to end the game.

Player Notes
Guerrero, who was sent back down to the minors the day after his debut, brings the heat with a fastball that sits in the high 90s and has touched triple digits. He adds to that arsenal a potentially plus slider, but delivery issues have kept him from being able to consistently harness his command. If he can continue to work on that, he should be back in the bigs for a while. His numbers in the past have been impressive. In 2015 he combined between El Paso and San Antonio (Double-A) for a 3.05 ERA in 48 games with 14 saves, fanning 61 in 56 innings while walking 31 and allowing 41 hits. It was his 2014 campaign that really put him on the map when he went 6-1 with a 1.46 ERA between the Padres’ two Class A affiliates at Fort Wayne and Lake Elsinore, striking out 56 and walking 20 while scattering 32 hits in 49.1 IP in his first full season. His career 3.92 ERA in six-plus seasons includes a 7.33 ERA in 50.1 IP in the rookie league as he got his bearings.
