Jeremy Guthrie gave up four runs on seven hits over six-plus innings in a no-decision against the Athletics on Friday.
Guthrie struck out a pair without issuing a walk in the ballgame. While he wasn't outstanding, he did enough to keep his team in the ballgame and eventually they were able to pull out a victory, which is all they ask from the innings-eater. He should continue to be avoided in mixed leagues despite Wednesday's juicy matchup against the Twins. Apr 17 - 10:58 PM

Jeremy Guthrie allowed four runs over seven innings in a win over the Angels on Saturday.

Guthrie struggled with the top of the Angels lineup, but a bottom half that included David Freese, Efren Navarro, Drew Butera and Johnny Giavotella wasn't such a challenge. He'll face the A's next time out.
Apr 12 - 2:56 AM

Jeremy Guthrie held the Mariners scoreless over 5 2/3 innings in Thursday's Cactus League start.

Guthrie outdueled Felix Hernandez, holding the Mariners to just two hits while walking none and striking out two on the afternoon. It was only Guthrie's second start of the spring, but he's expected to be ready to go when the regular season begins.
Mar 26 - 6:37 PM

Jeremy Guthrie could skip his scheduled start on Sunday due to a stomach bug.

Aaron Brooks would fill in should the Royals decide to hold Guthrie back. Either way, it's not going to affect his availability for Opening Day.
Mar 13 - 11:33 AM

Jeremy Guthrie yielded three runs on four hits over two frames in Tuesday's loss to the White Sox.

Guthrie served up a homer to the light-hitting Jarrod Dyson to lead off the bottom of the first inning and failed to settle in after that. The veteran right-hander has topped 200 innings each of the last two seasons and the Royals will be counting on him to do it again in 2015.
Mar 10 - 8:14 PM

Jeremy Guthrie couldn't make it out of the fourth inning in Wednesday's World Series Game 7, exiting after allowing three runs over 3 1/3 innings in the loss.

Guthrie loaded the bases with no outs in the top of the second inning, prompting manager Ned Yost to get a reliever up, but after Guthrie escaped with just a couple of sacrifice flies Yost left him in. That was until the fourth, when he left runners on first and third with one out. Reliever Kelvin Herrera allowed an RBI single to the next batter, charging Guthrie with a third run and saddling him with the loss. He didn't walk a batter while striking out three. Guthrie will be back in KC next season for the final year of his three-year contract signed after the 2012 season.

Royals manager Ned Yost said that Jeremy Guthrie will start a potential Game 7 against the Giants.

For a deciding game, it would be all hands on deck beyond that. Guthrie allowed two runs over five-plus innings in Game 3 last Friday.

Jeremy Guthrie pitched well as the Royals defeated the Giants in Game 3 of the World Series on Friday, allowing a pair of runs on four hits in his five-plus innings of work.

The 35-year-old right-hander cruised through the first five frames with relative ease, leading Royals skipper Ned Yost to leave him on the hill to begin the sixth inning. He was quickly yanked though after consecutive hits to start the inning, both of which would come around to score after he departed. Guthrie didn’t walk a batter or tally a strikeout in his first career postseason victory. The Royals will now give the ball to Jason Vargas on Saturday as they look to take a commanding 3-1 series lead.

Jeremy Guthrie will start Game 3 of the World Series against the Giants on Friday.

He'll square off against Tim Hudson in San Francisco. Guthrie allowed one run over five innings in Game 3 of the ALCS against the Orioles last Tuesday. Jason Vargas will follow him in Game 4. Guthrie is now lined up for a potential Game 7.

Jeremy Guthrie lasted just five innings but yielded only one run as the Royals beat the Orioles 2-1 Tuesday to take a 3-0 ALCS lead.

Guthrie wasn't particularly sharp, as the Orioles stung a bunch of balls and ran the veteran right-hander's pitch count up to 94 through five frames. He was able to hold them to one run on three hits and two walks, though, and the offense did just enough while the bullpen shut it down. The Royals have won all seven of their games this postseason, including six of them either by one run or when they took the lead in the ninth inning or beyond. They'll turn to Jason Vargas on Wednesday as they look to close things out.

Jeremy Guthrie will start Game 3 of the ALCS against the Orioles on Tuesday.

Monday's game was postponed to Tuesday due to rain, but there won't be any changes with the scheduled pitching matchup of Guthrie and Wei-Yin Chen. This will be Guthrie's first career postseason appearance.
Mon, Oct 13, 2014 04:55:00 PM

Game 3 of the ALCS between the Orioles and Royals has been postponed.

It's expected to rain all night in Kansas City, so MLB understandably went ahead and canceled the game rather than wait out the situation. Game 3 will now be played Tuesday at 8:07 p.m. ET. Games 4 and 5 (if necessary) will follow on Wednesday and Thursday, both at 4:07 p.m. ET.
Mon, Oct 13, 2014 04:32:00 PM

Royals manage Ned Yost announced Saturday that Jeremy Guthrie will start Game 3 of the ALCS against the Orioles.

That means that Jason Vargas will get the call in Game 4, with Danny Duffy continuing to be available out of the bullpen. It will be the first career postseason start for the 35-year-old right-hander who surrendered just one earned run over his last three starts in the regular season.
Sat, Oct 11, 2014 02:45:00 PM

Royals manager Ned Yost said Thursday that Jeremy Guthrie is likely to start Game 4 of the ALDS.

Guthrie is getting the call over Danny Duffy, who Yost evidently feels is a better fit in the bullpen. Duffy did have health issues down the stretch, which is surely what Yost is basing his decision on. Guthrie did allow just one earned run over his last three starts.

Jeremy Guthrie hurled seven shutout innings in a win against the White Sox on Friday, helping the Royals clinch at least a Wild Card.

The Royals are just a game behind the Tigers in the AL Central with two games to play as well, so there's still plenty of intrigue with the end of the season in plain view. Guthrie held the White Sox to just four hits and a walk while fanning six. He ends the regular season at 13-11 with a 4.13 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP, and a 124/49 K/BB ratio.
