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.

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.
Jun 13 - 8:35 PM

Jeremy Guthrie put in a strong start during Sunday's 4-3 no-decision win over the Rangers, allowing just three hits and two runs over 6 1/3 innings.

Guthrie was absolutely cruising entering the seventh inning, having struck out five and given up just one hit. After serving up back-to-back singles to Mitch Mooreland and Joey Gallo with one out in the frame, Guthrie was yanked for Kelvin Herrera, who proceeded to allow two singles of his own and put the two runs on Guthrie's line. The start lowered Guthrie's ERA to a still bloated 5.52. He also holds a 1.46 WHIP. The numbers aren't good, though it should be noted that the Yankees sandblasted him for 11 runs in an inning two starts ago, which will do a number on your ERA (prior to that start, he held a 4.75 number). He'll continue to try to dig out of that numerical hole in what figures to be a tough road outing against the Cardinals next time he toes the rubber.
Jun 7 - 4:48 PM

Jeremy Guthrie allowed just one run on two hits over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Indians on Tuesday.

Aside from a Brandon Moss solo home run, Guthrie was nearly perfect on the evening. It was quite a contrast to his last start in which he allowed 11 runs over an inning-plus of work. The right-hander walked one and struck out one over his 5 2/3 innings Tuesday, but his counterpart, Carlos Carrasco, was equally as strong to deny Guthrie of a decision. He'll attempt to get back in the win column Sunday against the Rangers.
Jun 3 - 12:18 AM

Jeremy Guthrie was obliterated for 11 earned runs in one official inning of work Monday by the Yankees.

Chase Headley, Brian McCann, and Brett Gardner all went deep in the bottom of the first inning and then Stephen Drew's three-run shot with no outs in the second finally drove Guthrie from the game. He entered the afternoon outing with a 4.75 ERA and watched it rise all the way up to 6.70. Guthrie is not a fantasy starter.
May 25 - 4:36 PM

Jeremy Guthrie shut out the Reds for six innings Wednesday to improve to 4-2 this season.

Guthrie had a horrid April with his velocity down, but he's won his last three starts, lowering his ERA from 6.52 to 4.75 in the process. That doesn't mean he's an option in mixed leagues, but he's clearly worth playing in AL-only leagues again.
May 20 - 11:13 PM

Jeremy Guthrie allowed two runs on six hits over five innings in Thursday's contest with the Rangers.

Both runs on Guthrie's line came in the fifth inning, when the Rangers scored on a pair of RBI singles. The outing wasn't particularly impressive, but that tends to happen with Jeremy Guthrie on the mound. He struck out one without walking a batter, scattering six hits along the way. While he might not have been shelled by the Rangers, he still holds an unappealing 5.44 ERA and 1.48 WHIP. Guthrie will face the Reds at home in his next start.
May 14 - 5:21 PM

Jeremy Guthrie pitched well on Saturday, allowing just two runs on eight hits over 7 1/3 innings in a victory over the Tigers.

Guthrie struck out three while walking only one on the afternoon. He allowed single runs in the second and sixth innings, but was able to shut the Tigers potent offense down the remainder of the day. Even with this strong effort, he'll carry a 5.70 ERA and 1.51 WHIP into Thursday's start against the Rangers in Texas.
May 9 - 3:48 PM

Jeremy Guthrie struggled against the Tigers on Sunday, surrendering six runs in six innings.

The Tigers racked up eleven hits against Guthrie in the contest, with Alex Avila supplying a pair of RBI singles and Miguel Cabrera capping off the scoring with a two-run homer. Guthrie struck out one and did not walk a batter. The rough outing pushed his ERA to 6.52 and his WHIP to 1.59, to go with a 11/10 K/BB. Unfortunately for Guthrie, he'll face these same Tigers again next weekend.
May 3 - 6:29 PM

Jeremy Guthrie will start for the Royals on Sunday versus the Tigers.

Jason Vargas had been listed, but the club evidently decided to make a switch. Vargas will now get the ball on Tuesday against the Indians instead.
