Jeremy Guthrie gives Royals five-plus scoreless innings on Thursday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/26/15) Royals starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie, the team's No. 5 starter, turned in a solid outing, outdueling Felix Hernandez Thursday afternoon for his first Cactus League win of the year.
Guthrie tossed four innings of no-hit ball until Nelson Cruz recorded leadoff single off the right-hander in the fifth. He allowed two hits and no walks while striking out two in 5 2/3 scoreless innings. He has a 3.52 ERA this spring.
"I was able to throw all my pitches for strikes," Guthrie said, per the Kansas City Star. "Felt healthy and strong, which obviously is the most important thing for everybody, to feel like you're getting your strength up. We're getting toward the end of spring."
Royals name Yordano Ventura Opening Day starter
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) The Royals have named pitcher Yordano Ventura the starter for Opening Day, the Kansas City Star reports.
Ventura gets the call after going 14-10 with a 3.20 ERA and 159:69 K:BB ratio in 183 innings last season in his first full year with the team. He capped the year with an uneven postseason but finished strong, allowing just two earned runs in 12 1/3 innings over two World Series starts. Manager Ned Yost said Wednesday that Ventura's performance in Game 6 of the World Series solidified his confidence in handing the young pitcher the Opening Day assignment.
Yost also said that Ventura will be followed by Danny Duffy, Edinson Volquez, Jason Vargas and Jeremy Guthrie in the rotation.
Royals' Guthrie might miss spring start Sunday due to illness

|(3/13/15) Royals starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie might miss his spring start Sunday against the Rockies due to a stomach illness, per The Kansas City Star. Aaron Brooks would replace Guthrie if he is unable to start.
Guthrie allowed three runs on four hits in two innings during his spring debut Tuesday against the White Sox. He struck out one.
Royals Jeremy Guthrie gets the loss in Game 7
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(10/29/14) Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie picked up the loss Wednesday in Game 7 against the Giants.
Guthrie allowed three runs on four hits over 3 1/3 innings. He struck out three and did not issue any walks during the performance. Manager Ned Yost had a quick hook with the season on the line, leading to Guthrie getting pulled despite a low pitch count. After putting two men on base to start the fourth, Guthrie was replaced by Kelvin Herrera. Herrera would allow a run-scoring single to Michael Morse. That run would be charged to Guthrie, ultimately sticking him with the loss.
Royals tab Jeremy Guthrie for potential Game 7
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(10/28/14) Royals manager Ned Yost said Jeremy Guthrie will start Game 7 against the Giants if Kansas City forces a deciding game. Yost said Guthrie would be "backed up by everyone we've got."
|2014 summary: With a 13-11 record, Jeremy Guthrie is now 3 for 3 in putting up winning records for the Royals (including his partial 2012 season). That's the only area where Guthrie made a contribution in Fantasy, as he was once again one of the most contact-prone starters in the majors. Because he didn't compensate for it with strong ground ball tendencies, like Henderson Alvarez, or with a low BABIP rate, like Chris Young, Guthrie was stuck with a 4.13 ERA and 1.30 WHIP that was of little use to Fantasy owners.
Playing time status: Guthrie will be penciled into the Royals' rotation this spring, but his spot could be vulnerable if Kyle Zimmer or Christian Binford make a push for a major league promotion at some point during the season.
2015 outlook: Even assuming Guthrie stays in the Royals' rotation all season, his relevance to Fantasy is limited to being filler for rotations in AL-only leagues.
