Jeffrey Guerrero is a 2017 graduate of La Sierra University (NAIA) who had 12 starts in his senior season with one complete game while striking out 44 in 75 innings. Jeff feels his three year average era of 7.38 is inaccurate and a direct result of poor keeping of stats and does not reflect his abilities.
Across two Australian seasons in Queensland and Victoria, with a third currently in progress, Jeff has logged a combined 4.50 era over 92 innings, striking out 83. His best season to date was with the Frankston Tomatoes in Victoria. Over 8 starts and 6 relief appearances, he struck out 56 in 63 innings, with a 2.86 ERA.
Jeff describes his abilities as; throwing a low-to-mid 80s fastball, able to touch upper 80s with natural cut and occasional sink, complimented by a big 12-6 curveball and a sharp, late-breaking slider, and changeup that sinks with arm-side run. Jeff has the confidence to throw any pitch in any count, mixes his pitches and varies his speed well, all with the same arm speed and has a great pickoff move. A big time competitor who wants the ball, wants to go deep into every game, Jeff thrives when he is under pressure and has great mound presence.
Other than pitching, Jeff is comfortable playing anywhere on the field including catcher. In high school he was mainly an outfielder and a catcher, spending a little time in the infield. In college he played a few innings in the outfield with a couple of ABs. He has above average speed and is a contact-line / drive hitter with gap power.
Jeff also enjoys coaching, most of his experience as an assistant coach of a u16 travel team in California. He has also coached for three different clubs’ junior programs in Australia. Most notably he was the head coach of the Frankston Tomatoes U18 team and led them to a Dandenong Baseball Association championship. He would be happy to coach a youth team for any overseas club who brings him on board as a player.
Any club interested in a pitcher/utility player with some coaching experience is encouraged to reach out to Jeff with any questions or to arrange an interview.
