      Royals' Jeremy Guthrie: Club option declined by Royals

      Guthrie's 2016 club option was declined, Andy McCullough of The Kansas City Star reports. Guthrie had a brutal 2015 campaign, recording a 5.95 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in 148.1 innings. Even with expected changes in the Royals starting rotation next season, the 36-year-old will likely not return to the club after spending three years with the organization. He should get another opportunity elsewhere, but he's unlikely to generate much fantasy interest in redraft leagues next season.

      Danny Duffy out, Jeremy Guthrie in rotation for Royals

      Struggling Royals right-hander Danny Duffy has been moved to the bullpen, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports. Duffy is winless in his last four starts, and he was tagged for four earned runs on six hits in just 2 1/3 innings in Cleveland on Wednesday. The Royals will move Jeremy Guthrie back into the rotation in Duffy's place, but McCullough notes that the latter will still compete for a spot on the postseason roster. Guthrie wasn't exactly tearing it up when he was moved to the bullpen, but he's been ineffective in relief as well. He owns a 5.55 ERA on the year. Guthrie will start Tuesday against Seattle.

      Kris Medlen could be in and Jeremy Guthrie out of Royals rotation

      The potential removal of ineffective Jeremy Guthrie from the rotation for the Royals has Ned Yost considering Kris Medlen as his replacement, according to the Kansas City Star. Guthrie could find himself in the bullpen after not being able to finish five innings Wednesday and having his ERA rise to 5.64. He is scheduled to start Monday against Baltimore, but that might not happen. Yost won't indicate either way. "I haven't thought about it," he said. "Like I'm going to sit here and tell you if he is or isn't." Chris Young is another possibility, but Medlen has performed extremely well recently with 11 consecutive scoreless innings and 10 strikeouts during that time. Medlen was an excellent starter with Atlanta in 2012 and 2013 before losing time to Tommy John surgery.

      Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie tosses 111 pitches, can't get out of fifth

      Any starter that throws 111 pitches in 4 1/3 innings is lucky when he doesn't lose. Consider Royals right-hander Jeremy Guthrie lucky. Guthrie indeed reached his pitch limit in Cincinnati before getting out of the fifth, but wound up with a no-decision. He surrendered three runs on seven hits with three walks and four strikeouts. It appeared he might not survive the first when Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips took him deep. An RBI double by Eugenio Suarez in the third added the final run against him. Guthrie failed to follow up a strong start after a long stretch of mediocrity. His ERA not sits at a miserable 5.65.

      Royals' Jeremy Guthrie stays in rotation; Chris Young odd man out

      The Royals will make a tweak to their starting rotation as they aim to make another deep postseason run this year.

      Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie collapses in sixth in defeat to Indians

      Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie pulled a Houdini act early in his Wednesday performance in Cleveland. But he couldn't escape a disastrous sixth inning and the result was a defeat that evened his record at 7-7. Guthrie finished having allowed seven earned runs on 10 hits in 5 1/3 innings with one walk and three strikeouts. The right-hander gave up three hits and a walk and hit two batters over the first two innings, but trailed at that point just 2-0. But the Indians smashed six straight hits against him with one out in the sixth, including home runs by Giovany Urshela, Francisco Lindor and Michael Brantley. "Guthrie was kind of classic Guthrie for the first five innings," manager Ned Yost said, per "He had a lot of traffic the first two innings, but limited the damage. He settled in the third, fourth and fifth. It just kind of fell apart there in the sixth." Guthrie has been clobbered for 17 runs on 38 hits in his last 23 1/3 innings pitched and has raised his ERA to 5.65. His rotation spot could be in jeopardy in the wake of the acquisition of stud starter Johnny Cueto.
