The Miami Marlins signed right handed pitcher Jeremy Guthrie to a minor league contract.
Guthrie will report to Triple-A New Orleans and will serve as rotation depth for the Marlins. The team will likely make a move for a higher-impact starter before the trade deadline, but Guthrie has a decent chance to make a few starts before then. His competition is Paul Clemens and Justin Nicolino.
Jeremy Guthrie was released by the Rangers, ending his shot at winning a spot in the team's rotation.
Guthrie will likely wind up elsewhere, but he could be looking at a bullpen role or even a stint in the minors in 2016.
Guthrie pitched just four and one-third innings allowing three runs, seven hits, and three walks as the Royals beat the Reds 4-3.
Guthrie had a short outing against the Reds, failing to pitch long enough to earn the win and raising his ERA to 5.65. He remains off the fantasy radar.
Guthrie pitched six innings allowing only one run on two hits and three walks in the Royals 7-6 loss to the Angels.
Despite turning in a strong performance against the Angels, the Royals bullpen uncharacteristically blew the 3-1 lead when he left, leaving him with a no decision. Regardless of the strong outing, there's still little value here for fantasy.
Guthrie pitched five and one-third innings allowing seven earned runs, ten hits, one walk and only struck out three in the Royals 12-1 loss to the Indians.
Guthrie allowed three HRs and seven earned runs as the Indians piled on, highlighting the blowup potential for Guthrie and why he's not a fantasy option.
