Another reunion: Twins sign reliever Guerrier

MINNEAPOLIS -- Another former Twin is back in the fold in Minnesota.
The Twins announced Wednesday that right-handed reliever Matt Guerrier has signed a minor-league deal and has an invitation to major league spring training. He joins Jason Bartlett and Jason Kubel as former Twins who have a chance to make the team again in 2014. Bartlett, Kubel and Guerrier were teammates in Minnesota from 2004-07.
In seven seasons with Minnesota, Guerrier posted a 3.38 ERA and a WHIP of 1.244 in 393 relief appearances. In 528 career appearances with the Twins, Dodgers and Cubs, Guerrier had a 3.51 ERA and a WHIP of 1.254, along with six saves.
Minnesota's bullpen -- which was its strongest unit last season -- returns mostly intact for 2014, although the Twins did lose right-hander Josh Roenicke, so Guerrier will have a chance to insert himself into the bullpen this spring.
