Giants signed RHP J.C. Gutierrez to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Gutierrez was non-tendered by the Angels in December after posting a 4.23 ERA and 45/20 K/BB ratio over 55 1/3 innings at the major league level last year. The 30-year-old could surface in the Giants' bullpen at some point in 2014.

Angels non-tendered RHP J.C. Gutierrez.

It comes after he was designated fora assignment last week. The right-hander posted a 4.23 ERA over 55 1/3 innings of work this past year and might have to settle for a minor league deal this winter.

Angels designated RHP J.C. Gutierrez for assignment.

The move was made to clear room for newly signed reliever Joe Smith on the 40-man roster. The Angels claimed the 30-year-old Gutierrez off waivers from the Royals in July, and the right-hander posted a 4.23 ERA over 55 1/3 innings of work this past year.

J.C. Gutierrez has been unavailable this week due to a biceps injury.

Angels claimed RHP J.C. Gutierrez off waivers from the Royals.

Gutierrez was designated for assignment 10 days ago after posting a 3.38 ERA and 17/8 K/BB ratio over 29 1/3 innings. He should be able to help in middle relief.

Royals designated RHP J.C. Gutierrez for assignment.

Gutierrez has pitched pretty decently for the Royals, posting a 3.38 ERA and 1.30 WHIP, but he was the low man on the totem pole in the bullpen. It's possible he could draw interest on waivers.

J.C. Gutierrez has earned the final spot in the Royals' Opening Day bullpen.

Gutierrez has struck out 10 batters and issued only two walks in 12 innings this spring in the Cactus League. The right-hander should do fine in a middle relief role.

Royals purchased the contract of RHP Juan Gutierrez from Triple-A Omaha.

The 29-year-old right-hander had an ugly 8.18 ERA in 11 innings this past season for Omaha. Gutierrez seems doubtful to crack the Royals' 2013 Opening Day roster.

Royals re-signed RHP Juan Gutierrez to a minor league contract.

Gutierrez is still recovering from Tommy John surgery, but managed to finish the year with the Royals' Triple-A affiliate. He's strictly organizational depth.

Royals signed RHP Juan Gutierrez to a minor league contract.

Gutierrez underwent Tommy John surgery in September and likely won't contribute until 2013. The 28-year-old right-hander holds a career 4.79 ERA and 1.42 WHIP, but also an 8.2 K/9 rate. He'll be under team control through 2015.

Diamondbacks released RHP Juan Gutierrez.

Gutierrez underwent Tommy John surgery last month, and evidently the D'Backs didn't want to wait until 2013, when he will likely be ready to contribute again. The 28-year-old right-hander holds a career 4.79 ERA and 1.42 WHIP, but also an 8.2 K/9 rate. As a hard-thrower that won't hit free agency until 2015, some other team will give him a shot.

Juan Gutierrez will undergo Tommy John surgery on September 6.

Gutierrez was originally placed on the disabled list in late-May with right shoulder inflammation, but his elbow has emerged as the bigger issue. The 28-year-old right-hander will now be sidelined for most, if not all, of the 2012 season.
Mon, Aug 29, 2011 06:47:00 PM

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson has revealed that Juan Gutierrez is also dealing with a sore elbow in addition to the shoulder ailment that landed him on the disabled list.

Gutierrez has been sidelined since mid-August and has yet to begin a throwing program. His return date is totally up in the air at this point.
Sun, Aug 28, 2011 08:28:00 AM

Diamondbacks transferred RHP Juan Gutierrez from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Gutierrez still isn't throwing due to lingering soreness in his right triceps. He registered a 5.40 ERA and 1.69 WHIP in 18 1/3 innings for Arizona earlier this year.
