Padres signed RHP Jeremy Guthrie to a minor league contract.
Guthrie is probably done as an effective major league pitcher, but this is at least a good landing spot for him. The Padres don't have much starting pitching depth, so the veteran hurler could eventually get a shot with the big club. He posted a 5.95 ERA last season with the Royals. Apr 1 - 3:08 PM

Rangers released RHP Jeremy Guthrie.

Guthrie was given his release after exercising the opt-out clause in his minor league contract. The veteran right-hander posted a 5.14 ERA and 5/3 K/BB ratio over seven innings this spring. A.J. Griffin is the likely favorite for the fifth spot in the Rangers' rotation, though Nick Martinez is also in the mix.

Jeremy Guthrie allowed one run in his two innings of work Friday against the Brewers.

Guthrie, in camp with the Rangers on a minor league deal, struck out three and the lone run scored on a home run from Domingo Santana. The 36-year-old posted a 5.95 ERA over 24 starts and six relief appearances last season with the Royals and would appear to be a long shot to win the final spot in the Rangers' rotation.

Jeremy Guthrie (back) will make his Cactus League debut on Monday.

Guthrie was scratched from a scheduled start last Thursday due to lower back stiffness, but clearly he's feeling much better. The veteran right-hander is in camp with the Rangers as a non-roster invitee.
Mar 6 - 10:44 AM

Jeremy Guthrie was scratched from a scheduled Cactus League appearance Thursday due to lower back stiffness.

Guthrie was supposed to follow starter Derek Holland, but the Rangers are going to give the veteran right-hander a few days as a precautionary measure. Guthrie signed a minor league contract with Texas late last month. He posted a 5.95 ERA in 24 starts and six relief appearances last summer for Kansas City.
Mar 3 - 3:00 PM

Rangers signed RHP Jeremy Guthrie to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Guthrie looked washed up last year, sporting an ugly 5.95 ERA across 30 outings for Kansas City. He'll compete with Nick Martinez and Chi Chi Gonzalez for the Rangers' final rotation spot this spring. Of course, he'd only be holding down the job for Yu Darvish, who is expected to rejoin the rotation sometime in May or June.
Feb 20 - 7:37 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.

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."

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.

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.

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.

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.
