Be careful how you assess Jeremy Guthrie
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer (4/5/2013) A strong start for Jeremy Guthrie to kick off 2013 wasn't entirely surprising given the way he dominated after coming over to the Royals from the Rockies late in 2012. Yes, dominated. I don't know what else you'd call a 2.17 ERA and 1.03 WHIP over his final 11 starts.
But during that stretch, he dominated by commanding the strike zone and eating innings. On Thursday, he recorded nine strikeouts.
That won't happen again. His season high last year was only eight. His career strikeout rate is 5.5 per nine innings.
Still, the start gives me reason to hope last year's finish wasn't a complete fluke. Guthrie had a couple good years with the Orioles, after all, and pitching coach Dave Eiland may have figured out what makes him tick. Given the limited strikeout potential, I'll pass on him in 12-team mixed leagues for now, but in anything deeper, I'm in.
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com (4/4/2013) Royals starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie kept the White Sox guessing Thursday, picking up his first win by allowing just one earned run on five hits and a walk through six innings while striking out nine.
It was Guthrie's first game with at least nine strikeouts since Sept. 14, 2011, when he recorded 10 against the Rays.
Guthrie is scheduled to take on the Twins in his next start.
