Latest Showcase Report
2004 World Showcase   Jan 10, 2004
PG Grade: 10
Guerra was extra sharp at the World Showcase, striking out 8 hitters in 3 innings of work and generally overmatching most hitters. It looks like Guerra has toned down his unique jump and throw delivery a bit, although he’s still unconventional, and this will help him in the future. Guerra threw 88-92 mph in Fort Myers, averaging 91 and his secondary pitches were very good, perhaps the best we’ve seen them. His curveball was 75-79 mph with sharp bite, while his change showed plus sinking action at 78-80 along with plus big league arm speed. Guerra is one of the better makeup players in the country in our book, combining a great on-field intensity with a loose and friendly personality off the field. He’s signed to go to Arizona if the draft doesn’t get him first. There's going to be a lot of mixed feelings among highest level scouts. Of course they're all going to like his arm, it's one of the best in the country. The question is, will he be better or worse if he has to change his delivery.
