Phillies signed RHP J.C. Gutierrez to a minor league contract.

Gutierrez exercised the opt-out clause in his minor league deal with the Giants a week ago after posting a 4.94 ERA with 21 strikeouts over 23 2/3 innings at Triple-A Sacramento. He's merely a depth addition.

Giants released RHP J.C. Gutierrez.

Steve Adams of MLBTradeRumors.com says Gutierrez has exercised the opt-out clause in his contract. The 31-year-old has posted a 4.94 ERA with 21 strikeouts over 23 2/3 innings at Triple-A Sacramento this season. He should be able to latch on elsewhere pretty quickly.

Giants re-signed RHP J.C. Gutierrez to a minor league contract.

The pact likely contains an invitation to spring training. Gutierrez held a 3.96 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 44/16 K/BB ratio over 63 2/3 innings for the World Champion Giants in 2014. He should get a legit shot at an Opening Day bullpen spot.

J.C. Gutierrez has elected free agency.

The 31-year-old right-hander pitched 63 2/3 innings for the World Champion Giants in 2014, registering a 3.96 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 44/16 K/BB ratio. With so many teams around the league desperate for quality depth in the bullpen, he shouldn't have any trouble landing on his feet elsewhere.

Giants designated RHP J.C. Gutierrez for assignment.

Gutierrez put up a 3.96 ERA with 44 strikeouts over 63 2/3 innings for the World Champs this season. He'll likely have to settle for a minor league deal this winter.

J.C. Gutierrez (biceps) returned to game action on Friday, logging a pair of scoreless innings to complete a shutout against the Dodgers.

Madison Bumgarner twirled the first seven innings before Gutierrez came on to retire all six batters he faced to put the game away. The 31-year-old hurler owns a 3.90 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 40/12 K/BB ratio over his 60 innings with the Giants this season.

J.C. Gutierrez received a cortisone injection in his right biceps last Thursday.

It explains why he hasn't pitched in over a week and also probably why he held an 11.74 ERA in August. Gutierrez should be available shortly if the shot has the desired effect.

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.

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.

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.
