Nationals designated RHP Jeremy Guthrie for assignment.

It comes a day after he was clobbered for 10 runs over two-thirds of an inning in a spot start on his 38th birthday. In all likelihood, we may have seen Guthrie throw his last pitch in the majors.
Apr 9 - 10:52 AM

Jeremy Guthrie retired only two batters while getting torched for 10 runs in a record-setting loss to the Phillies on Saturday.

The Phillies set a club record by scoring 12 runs in the first inning -- ten of them were charged to Guthrie. Even the outs he managed to get brought in runs. Both outs were sacrifice flies. He gave up six hits and walked four and all ten of those baserunners came around to score. This could quite possibly be the worst start we will see all season. Guthrie was just called up from Triple-A today to make this spot start on his 38th birthday. He did not pitch in the majors last year. He worked 148 1/3 innings for the Royals in 2015, ending up with a 5.95 ERA. It is unlikely he will get another start, not only because of today's nightmare but because the Nationals don't need a fifth starter for the next two weeks and Joe Ross will be back soon.
Apr 9 - 12:15 AM

Nationals selected the contract of RHP Jeremy Guthrie from Triple-A Syracuse.

Michael Taylor was sent down in the corresponding move. Guthrie will draw the start Saturday against the Phillies. The Nationals won't need a fifth starter again until April 22, at which point Joe Ross is expected to join the starting rotation. Guthrie is celebrating his 38th birthday on Saturday.
Apr 8 - 4:05 PM

Jeremy Guthrie is expected to start Saturday's game against the Phillies.

The Nats want to give Stephen Strasburg an extra day of rest and Joe Ross isn't eligible to return until April 12. After Saturday, the Nats won't need a fifth starter until April 22. It's conceivable that Guthrie could stick around as a long reliever until that date. The right-hander turns 38 on Saturday.

Nationals re-assigned RHP Jeremy Guthrie to minor league camp.

Guthrie held a 2.41 ERA this spring, but it wasn't enough to win an Opening Day long relief job. He could get a shot eventually should a need arise.
Apr 2 - 11:32 AM

Jeremy Guthrie pitched 4 1/3 hitless innings Fridya in a start against the Cardinals.

Guthrie was brought to camp to compete for a job as a reliever, and he hadn't pitched more than two innings in any of his previous seven appearances before suddenly getting 13 outs today. He's done a nice job to date, with a 2.45 ERA and a 12/5 K/BB ratio in 14 2/3 innings. There's still no real reason for the Nationals to carry him, but maybe someone else will be interested.
Mar 24 - 5:35 PM

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

The 37-year-old hurler spent the entire 2016 season in the minor leagues where he registered a 7.17 ERA and 1.77 WHIP across 86 2/3 innings between Triple-A El Paso (Padres) and Triple-A New Orleans (Marlins). He's nothing more than a depth signing for the Nats at this stage of his career.
Feb 3 - 4:46 PM

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that Jeremy Guthrie will play winter ball in Australia and is hoping to land a major league bullpen job for 2017.

Guthrie spent all of last season in the minors after holding a 5.95 ERA over 148 1/3 innings for the Royals in 2015. He'll turn 38 next April and will surely have to settle for a minor league contract.

Marlins released RHP Jeremy Guthrie.

Guthrie had an 8.44 ERA in 26 2/3 innings (six starts) with the Triple-A affiliate of the Marlins. The veteran right-hander will have to settle for another minor league contract if he wants to continue his playing career. He turned 37 years old in April.

Marlins signed RHP Jeremy Guthrie to a minor league contract.

The deal is pending a physical. He'll start out at Triple-A New Orleans and try to work his way up from there. Guthrie was in the Padres' system earlier this year but exercised his opt-out clause when he didn't get a call-up. The 37-year-old recorded a lousy 5.95 ERA in 30 outings (24 starts) for the Royals last season.

Padres released RHP Jeremy Guthrie.

Guthrie exercised the opt-out in his minor league contract. He pitched a bit better of late with Triple-A El Paso but ultimately posted a 6.60 ERA with them. Guthrie will now look to catch on elsewhere on another minor league deal.
Fri, Jun 3, 2016 09:37:00 AM

Jeremy Guthrie plans to opt out of his minor league contract with the Padres.

He has pitched a little better lately at Triple-A El Paso but still holds an ugly 6.60 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 60 innings (11 starts) for the year. Guthrie turned 37 years old in April and will almost certainly have to settle for another minor league deal on the open market.

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.
Fri, Apr 1, 2016 03:08:00 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.
