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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
