Jeremy Guthrie earned his ninth win of the season after allowing four runs in seven innings while the Royals bashed the Twins in a 12-6 victory on Sunday.
Guthrie has struggled since the start of July, including his beating against the Athletics in his last start, so Sunday's effort was a nice rebound. The right-hander allowed five hits and walked two while striking out seven. He'll take a 4.48 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and a 105/41 K/BB ratio into Saturday's road start against the Rangers. Aug 17 - 6:41 PM

Date:

Jeremy Guthrie surrendered 11 hits and six runs -- four earned -- over 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the A's on Tuesday.

Guthrie got knocked around, but it was mostly death by papercuts -- only one of the 11 hits given up went for extra bases. The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for the right-hander, who fell to 8-10. Guthrie will carry a 4.45 ERA into Sunday's matchup with the Twins at Target Field.
Aug 12 - 11:08 PM

Jeremy Guthrie yielded two runs in a complete-game victory against the Diamondbacks on Thursday.

Guthrie, who retired the last 19 batters he faced, declined to issue a free pass and struck out four batters. He was absolutely battered in July, going 1-3 with a 10.07 ERA in four starts, but allowed three hits over six innings Friday against the A's in his first start of August and put together his second consecutive quality outing this evening. The right-hander is safe to use in AL-only formats again. Guthrie (8-9, 4.35 ERA) gets the A's again next week.
Aug 8 - 12:25 AM

Jeremy Guthrie allowed three hits over six innings Friday to notch the win as the Royals beat the A's 1-0.

Guthrie is thankful to have July over with: he went 1-3 with a 10.07 ERA in four starts last month. He's simply a spot starter in AL-only leagues right now, but he'll be a decent play next week in a road start against the Diamondbacks.
Aug 2 - 12:44 AM

Jeremy Guthrie fell to 5-8 after allowing eight runs in four innings as the Royals were easily defeated by the Tigers on Thursday.

The Tigers' offense is firing on all cylinders, having scored 14 runs on Tuesday and 16 on Thursday. Guthrie was no match for it, allowing eight hits, walking three, and striking out only two in the effort. The right-hander heads into the All-Star break carrying a 4.56 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP, and a 75/32 K/BB ratio.
Jul 11 - 12:04 AM

Jeremy Guthrie was hammered for six earned runs in four innings Saturday in a loss to the Indians.

It was the worst start in close to two months for Guthrie, who was knocked around for 11 hits and issued two walks. His ERA went from 3.69 all the way to 4.02. Guthrie will try to get back on the right track in his next outing at home against the Tigers.
Jul 5 - 9:59 PM

Jeremy Guthrie allowed two runs over 7 2/3 innings Monday in a defeat of the Dodgers.

Guthrie has rebounded from a five-game losing streak to win three in a row, allowing five runs over 20 innings in the process. We wouldn't go picking him up in mixed leagues, of course, but he's giving the Royals exactly what they need.
Jun 24 - 12:20 AM

Jeremy Guthrie limited the Tigers to one run in 6 2/3 innings in a victory Wednesday.

Incredibly, he struck out nine for the second straight start. Prior to last week, he had just six nine-strikeout games in 229 career starts. Perhaps more incredibly, Guthrie also committed his sixth error of the season in the game. That's three more than any other pitcher in MLB and two more than any pitcher had during the entire 2013 season. The last pitcher to have more than six in a season was Matt Garza, who committed seven in 2011.
Jun 18 - 4:25 PM

Jeremy Guthrie pitched well on Friday, whiffing nine White Sox over 5 2/3 innings en route to his third victory of the season.

The veteran right-hander allowed two runs on six hits and four walks on the evening. He danced in and out of trouble throughout the night, but was able to make big pitches in the most critical situations. He now owns a 4.04 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 50/24 K/BB ratio on the season. He’s nothing more than a matchup play in mixed leagues, and should be avoided for Wednesday’s matchup against the Tigers in Detroit.
Jun 13 - 11:53 PM

Jeremy Guthrie gave up four runs over seven innings in a loss to the Yankees on Friday.

Guthrie had allowed four runs in his previous three outings combined. The big blow Friday was a bases-clearing double by Brian McCann in the third inning. The veteran right-hander struck out two and walked one in the loss and now owns a 4.10 ERA through 13 starts this season. He's winless since April 9, but will try to change that when he faces the Indians next week in another start at home.
Jun 7 - 12:10 AM

Jeremy Guthrie allowed one run over six innings of work but took the loss against the Astros on Tuesday.

Guthrie gave up seven hits and walked three, with a Matt Dominguez RBI single as the only damage against him on the evening. The right-hander also struck out five. He's been very good in his last two starts with nothing to show for it, and he's 2-4 with a 4.14 ERA and 1.23 WHIP through 11 starts. He gives the Royals innings but remains a non-entity outside of deep AL-only leagues. His next start will come Sunday at the Blue Jays.
May 27 - 11:50 PM

Jeremy Guthrie allowed just one run and three hits over seven innings in a no-decision against the White Sox on Wednesday.

Guthrie didn't get a win for his effort. He prevailed in his first two starts of the year, but he's 0-3 in eight starts since, even though the Royals have won four of those games. The start tonight lowered his ERA from 4.76 to 4.39.
May 21 - 11:06 PM

Jeremy Guthrie took the loss on Friday against the Orioles, allowing four runs over eight innings.

The Orioles scattered a handful of singles and were able to push across two runs in the fourth and one in the sixth. Chris Davis added a fourth run with a solo home run in the eighth. Overall, Guthrie allowed eight hits and a walk while striking out two. He'll face the White Sox at home next, searching for his first win since April 9.
May 16 - 10:54 PM

Jeremy Guthrie allowed seven runs, including three home runs, over 4 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Mariners on Sunday.

Guthrie served up two homers to Dustin Ackley and another to Kyle Seager among his eight hits allowed. The right-hander didn't walk a batter while striking out two. His offense bailed him out from taking his third loss, but Guthrie still hasn't earned a win since April 9. He'll keep searching for that win Saturday against the Orioles.
May 11 - 9:02 PM

Jeremy Guthrie fired eight innings of one-run ball as part of a no-decision versus the Padres on Tuesday.

Guthrie didn't blow anybody away, of course -- striking out two -- but he limited unforced errors (one walk) and kept the Padres off balance (three scattered hits; the fourth was Yasmani Grandal's fourth inning solo homer). Guthrie is earning his salary thus far, going 2-2 with a 3.91 ERA in seven outings. The veteran remains out west in Seattle on Sunday.
