After publicly announcing they had no plans for Pedro Guerrero to become a strike-replacement player, the Angels sent him a letter requesting he do otherwise.

“That’s an embarrassment to the game of baseball,” said Tony Attanasio, Guerrero’s agent. “I repeatedly asked the Angels a month ago if Pedro would be invited to major league camp. They told me, ‘Absolutely not.’ ”

Angel General Manager Bill Bavasi said the club sent letters to every minor league player asking whether they’d be interested in becoming a replacement player.

Guerrero, 38, who signed a triple-A contract last month that pays him $3,000 a month, would receive a non-guaranteed contract for $115,000 and a $10,000 reporting bonus if he agrees to become a replacement player.
