McGuire, who pitched four innings in relief of Lamb on Tuesday, has started 181 games in the minors, including eight of his nine minor league games this year. McGuire has appeared in relief in all six of his major league games, with the Toronto Blue Jays and Angels. McGuire, 29, has a career 4.30 ERA in the minors.
