White Sox designate Guerra for assignment

CHICAGO (AP) Right-hander Javy Guerra has been designated for assignment by the Chicago White Sox.

Guerra didn't allow a run in three games and 1 1-3 innings for the White Sox. He went on the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation on April 20, a move retroactive to April 13.

He had a 17.18 ERA in four games during an injury rehabilitation assigned at Triple-A Charlotte. The White Sox activated him from the DL on Wednesday, then designated him for assignment.

Chicago remains responsible for his $937,500 salary. The team has 10 days to trade him, sending him outright to the minors or put him on waivers.
