Royals declined their part of RHP Jeremy Guthrie's $10 million mutual option for 2016.
No surprise here, as Guthrie becomes a free agent after getting a $3.2 million buyout from the Royals. The veteran right-hander was left off Kansas City's postseason roster after posting an ugly 5.95 ERA over 24 starts and six relief appearances this season. He'll be 37 next April. Nov 4 - 10:08 AM

Jeremy Guthrie is not on the Royals' ALDS roster.

That's not a surprise. Guthrie made two starts in last year's World Series, but the veteran right-hander registered a rough 5.95 ERA and 1.55 WHIP across 148 1/3 innings during the 2015 regular season. Kris Medlen and Chris Young both made the ALDS roster over him.
Oct 8 - 11:47 AM

Jeremy Guthrie was knocked around by the Mariners on Tuesday, allowing nine runs -- eight earned -- in 2 1/3 innings in a loss.

The start was his first since being inserted back into the starting rotation, and it wasn't a strong showing from the right-hander. Guthrie was prone to the long ball in the loss, as four of his nine hits allowed were homers. He struck out two without walking a batter on the evening. Guthrie now owns a 5.95 ERA and 1.56 WHIP on the season. His next start, assuming he gets one, will come Sunday against the Indians.
Sep 22 - 11:24 PM

Jeremy Guthrie is moving back into the Royals' rotation.

He'll take over for Danny Duffy, who got roughed up Wednesday night against the Indians and will finish out the season in the bullpen. Guthrie didn't pitch all that well in long relief and remains a very poor fantasy option.
Sep 17 - 3:52 PM

Jeremy Guthrie has been moved to the bullpen.

Kris Medlen will take the vacancy. Guthrie, 36, owns a rough 5.65 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 129 innings (23 starts) this season for the Royals. "Disappointment comes from a lack of preparation and a lack of work," Guthrie said. "At the end of the day, I’d like to pitch better. I’ve done everything I can do to that. And I will continue to do that."
Aug 22 - 7:34 PM

Jeremy Guthrie took a no-decision, allowing three runs in 4 1/3 innings in Wednesday's victory over the Reds.

Guthrie served up back-to-back solo home runs to Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips in the first inning, and Eugenio Suarez tacked on an RBI double in the third. The right-hander, overall, gave up seven hits and walked three while striking out four. Guthrie is in the midst of the worst season of his career, carrying a 5.65 ERA with a 1.57 WHIP and a 66/39 K/BB ratio over 129 innings. He'll open up a four-game homestand against the Orioles next week.
Aug 20 - 12:36 AM

Jeremy Guthrie pitched well in a no-decision against the Angels on Thursday, allowing just one run on two hits over six strong innings.

Guthrie walked three and struck out two on the evening. The only blemish on his night was an RBI single by Conor Gillaspie in the fourth inning. He departed with a 3-1 lead and in line for his ninth victory, but the usually stout Royals bullpen was unable to hold on. Guthrie will bring a 5.63 ERA and 1.55 WHIP into his next outing against the Reds in Cincinnati on Wednesday.
Aug 13 - 11:57 PM

Jeremy Guthrie struggled in Saturday's win over the White Sox, allowing six runs on 10 hits over 5 2/3 innings.

The Royals roared to a 7-2 lead after five innings, but Guthrie made it uncomfortable almost immediately. After coughing up a solo home run to Jose Abreu to lead off the sixth, he surrendered three singles and an additional run before being lifted from the game. The rest of the damage to his line was done by the Royal bullpen. The tough outing dented a slew of already-ugly numbers and he now holds a 5.84 ERA and 1.58 WHIP. It's difficult to believe that the Royals would continue to stick with Guthrie in the rotation given his almost constant struggles, but should he make his next start, it would come at home against the Angels.
Aug 8 - 10:03 PM

Jeremy Guthrie was lit up for eight runs -- seven earned -- over 5 1/3 innings in Wednesday's loss to the Indians.

He yielded 10 hits -- including three home runs -- while walking one, hitting three batters and recording just three strikeouts. It could be the last straw for Guthrie, whose ERA on the season now sits at 5.65. Royals manager Ned Yost will decide by next Tuesday whether to keep Guthrie or Chris Young in the rotation.
Jul 29 - 4:05 PM

Jeremy Guthrie was hit hard in a losing effort against the Astros on Friday, surrendering four runs on 11 hits over his seven frames.

Guthrie struck out three and walked two on the night. While he wasn't at his best, at least he gave the club innings and kept the bullpen well-rested. The right-hander has really struggled through 19 starts on the year, posting a 5.35 ERA, 4.85 xFIP and 56/31 K/BB ratio over 107 2/3 innings. He'll look to get back on track on Wednesday when he takes on the Indians in Cleveland.
Jul 24 - 10:52 PM

Jeremy Guthrie allowed three earned runs in five innings Saturday against the White Sox.

Kansas City wound up winning in 13 innings. Guthrie gave up nine hits, but he walked just one batter and struck out three. The veteran right-hander has a disappointing 5.36 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 18 starts this season, though his record is 7-5 for the AL-Central leading Royals.
Jul 18 - 7:34 PM

Jeremy Guthrie pitched a strong game in earning a no-decision against the Twins on Friday, allowing two runs on five hits over 7 1/3 innings.

Despite Guthrie's strong performance, the pitcher did not receive a decision in the game, as the contest was knotted at 2-2 until the Royals snapped the tie in the bottom of the 10th inning. Guthrie struck out four and walked one, lowering his ERA to a still-awful 5.42. He also holds a 1.46 WHIP. None of these numbers are good, obviously. Guthrie will try to repeat his results from Friday when he faces the Rays in a home start next Wednesday.
Jul 4 - 12:25 AM

Jeremy Guthrie allowed two runs over six innings in a victory over the Athletics on Sunday.

Guthrie picked up his 1,000th career strikeout along the way. His seven strikeouts were a season high.
Jun 28 - 8:16 PM

Jeremy Guthrie was tagged for six runs and nine hits in five innings by the Mariners on Tuesday.

This is doubly ugly with the way the Mariners have been hitting. Guthrie had been pitching a little better lately, allowing eight runs over his previous four starts. Still, his season overall has been nothing less than a disaster. He's sporting a 5.90 ERA with just 36 strikeouts in 76 1/3 innings.
Jun 24 - 12:49 AM

Jeremy Guthrie was hit around in a loss to the Cardinals on Saturday, allowing three runs on 10 hits over five innings.

All things considered, this could have gone far, far worse for Guthrie. He struck out four and walked one. Despite his inability to miss bats, the Cardinals scored just three runs--twice in the third inning with an additional run in the fifth. The loss dropped Guthrie to 4-4 on the season. He holds a miserable 5.79 ERA and 1.52 WHIP to this point. The Brewers generally act as a decent antidote to failure, though, and they're up next on his schedule.
