Jeremy Guthrie threw seven innings of one-run ball to lead the Royals past the Rays on Wednesday.
Guthrie was hammered for four runs over 5 2/3 innings last Friday against the White Sox but still escaped with a victory. He was much sharper Wednesday in Kansas City and moved to 2-0 on the year. The right-hander remains a matchup-to-matchup play in fantasy leagues. Next week's tilt in Houston is an attractive one. Apr 9 - 5:20 PM

Jeremy Guthrie was tagged for four runs on seven hits over 5 2/3 innings on Friday, but managed to escape with a victory over the White Sox.

The veteran right-hander also issued four free passes while punching out three. He remains nothing more than a matchup play in mixed leagues, and should probably be avoided for Wednesday’s home tilt against the Rays.
Apr 4 - 8:00 PM

Jeremy Guthrie allowed four runs in five innings during Monday's start against the Rockies.

Guthrie walked one and allowed six hits, including a solo shot to Troy Tulowitzki in the second inning. Guthrie has a 7.04 on the spring, which isn't really inspiring confidence in his ability to improve upon last season's 4.04 ERA in 211 2/3 innings.
Mar 24 - 6:24 PM

Jeremy Guthrie struggled against the Indians in Thursday's start, giving up three runs (two earned) in three innings.

Guthrie allowed five hits and three walks but did strike out five. Strikeouts aren't really his forte, though. He does eat up a lot of innings while issuing relatively few walks.
Mar 13 - 5:28 PM

Jeremy Guthrie allowed three runs in two innings in Monday's start against the White Sox.

Guthrie was under pressure from the start in his Cactus League debut, allowing back-to-back singles to start the first inning before allowing a one-out, three-run home run to Andy Wilkins. The right-hander showed improvement last season despite allowing a league-leading 236 hits, finishing with a 4.04 ERA.
Mar 3 - 6:51 PM

The Royals have reworked their contract with Jeremy Guthrie, adding a $10 million mutual option for 2016.

Guthrie will make $8 million in 2014 rather than $11 million and his new mutual option will include a $3.2 million buyout. It's the same amount of guaranteed money as the originally-agreed-to three-year, $25 million deal and clears some room in the Royals' budget to make more upgrades this winter. Guthrie, 34, posted a 4.04 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 111/59 K/BB ratio in 211 2/3 innings last season.
Jan 13 - 10:56 AM

Jeremy Guthrie surrendered two runs and four hits in seven innings to beat the White Sox on Thursday.

Guthrie finishes the year 15-12 with a 4.07 ERA. It's hardly the best he's ever pitched, but he finished with a winning record for the first time since 2007 and blew past his previous career high for wins by four. The Royals owe him $20 million through 2015, so he'll be back in the rotation next year.

Jeremy Guthrie allowed three earned runs in six innings Saturday in a loss to the Rangers.

It was a typical Guthrie start. He gave up seven hits, walked two and struck out only one, falling to 14-12 on the year with a 4.09 ERA. He'll get the White Sox next.

Jeremy Guthrie was charged with three runs on 13 hits in eight innings during Sunday's loss in Detroit.

He struck out four and walked one. Guthrie danced out of most of his self-inflicted problems, but Alex Avila had his number and smacked two homers that accounted for all three runs on Guthrie's ledger. This was Guthrie's third consecutive quality start and his fourth out of five. The right-hander drops to 14-11 with a 4.08 ERA.

Jeremy Guthrie had his stuff working Tuesday, tossing six innings of one-run ball in a 6-3 win over the Indians.

Guthrie permitted nine hits, but just one of them went for extra bases and he didn’t walk anyone. The right-hander has been up-and-down in the second half, allowing four or more runs in five outings but also limiting the opposition to one or zero on five occasions. He’ll get a rematch against the Tribe next week in Kansas City.

Jeremy Guthrie tossed seven innings of one run-ball in a tough-luck no-decision against the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Guthrie scattered eight hits while walking none and striking out four. He was in line for the win until an error by Alcides Escobar in the eighth opened the door for the Blue Jays to take the lead. The veteran right-hander owns a respectable 4.08 ERA through 28 starts this season, but he doesn't miss enough bats to be a consistent option in mixed fantasy leagues.
Sat, Aug 31, 2013 04:02:00 PM

Jeremy Guthrie was shelled for five earned runs in six innings Wednesday in a loss to the White Sox.

Guthrie has been lit up now in three straight starts and there is no light at the end of the tunnel. The 34-year-old right-hander will carry a 4.27 ERA and 1.39 WHIP into his next scheduled outing against the Rays.

Jeremy Guthrie was hammered for five earned runs in six innings Saturday as the Royals lost to the Red Sox.

Guthrie threw a complete-game shutout against the Twins on Monday but looked like a completely different pitcher on Saturday at Kansas City's Kauffman Stadium. He coughed up 10 hits -- including two Jacoby Ellsbury doubles -- and also issued a walk. The right-hander will carry a 4.10 ERA and 1.37 WHIP into his next outing in Detroit.
Sat, Aug 10, 2013 10:50:00 PM

Jeremy Guthrie hurled his second complete-game shutout of the season as the Royals smoked the Twins 13-0 on Monday.

Guthrie never had a shutout until throwing one against the White Sox on May 5. This makes two, and it's his fourth straight win after a pre-All-Star break slump. He's now 12-7 with a 3.96 ERA. It's the first time since mid-June that his ERA has been under 4.00.
Mon, Aug 5, 2013 11:23:00 PM

Jeremy Guthrie allowed just one run over six innings against his former team as the Royals beat the Orioles 7-1 on Thursday.

Guthrie has faced the Orioles twice this year and beaten them both times, allowing a total of three runs in 13 innings. He's been struggling against the rest of the AL lately, but he does have an easy matchup coming up next week against the Twins.
