    After posting a 1-2, 3.63 mark as a freshman at Washington State, Guerrero transferred to Lower Columbia (Wash.) JC, and cruised in his two outings, putting up 20 strikeouts and four walks over 10 innings. Guerrero ranked as the No. 253 prospect in the 2020 BA 500 but went unpicked in the five-round draft and transferred to Washington. Guerrero suffered an MCL sprain in his knee in one of his first outings of the season, but returned to post a 3-3, 2.96 mark with 50 strikeouts and 18 walks in 54.2 innings over 11 starts. The 6-foot, 195-pound lefthander is athletic, and shows feel to spin. He utilizes a three-pitch mix, headlined by a fastball that was up to 94-95 mph last season and regularly sat 90-91 this season and topped out at 93-94 mph. Due in part to his deception, Guerrero gets swings and misses on the pitch. His best secondary offering is a high-spin curveball, followed by a changeup, each of which he throws for strikes. Guerrero is a control-over-command pitcher, and finds a way to stay off the barrel. Evaluators feel he is likely destined for a role as a middle reliever, where his fastball would play up, but a team could view him as a back-end starter. Guerrero is likely to go off the board late on day two or early on day three.
