Gutierrez allowed five runs on eight hits and four walks with four strikeouts in five innings versus San Diego on Saturday. He did not factor in the decision. Gutierrez had his worst start of the season, giving up high marks in runs, hits and walks. He allowed a two-run home run to Jake Cronenworth in the third inning and a three-run double to Manny Machado in the fourth. The right-hander has been solid with a 3.86 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 23:14 K:BB across 28 innings in his rookie season. He'll draw a tough home start versus Atlanta next week.
Gutierrez (3-1) earned the win Monday against the Brewers after tossing six innings of two-run ball, allowing four hits and two walks while fanning six. Gutierrez has looked surprisingly good in four outings this season, as he's yet to give up more than two earned runs and has also recorded two quality starts. He owns a 19:10 K:BB through 24 innings and while the sample size is still small, Gutierrez has looked better than expected on the mound and is making a strong case to remain in the rotation once some of Cincinnati's arms get healthier. With both Sonny Gray (groin) and Jeff Hoffman (shoulder) sidelined, Gutierrez should at least stick around in the short term.
Gutierrez (2-1) allowed two earned runs on six hits and three walks while striking out seven across seven innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Brewers. This was the deepest that Gutierrez has worked into any of his three big-league starts and it was also his most impressive from a skills perspective. After striking out three batters in both of his first two starts, he racked up seven punchouts backed by 13 swinging strikes on 102 total pitches. He further limited the damage by generating eight groundouts and holding the Brewers to just one extra-base hit. With both Sonny Gray (groin) and Jeff Hoffman (shoulder) sidelined, Gutierrez should have a chance to stick in the rotation for the time being.
Gutierrez (1-1) allowed two earned runs on three hits and three walks while striking out three across five innings in the win over the Cardinals on Thursday. Gutierrez picked up his first career win in his second start for the Reds on Thursday. The rookie allowed two runs in the first inning on three hits and a walk, but he followed that with four hitless frames. The 25-year-old has a 2.70 ERA and 1.00 WHIP with six strikeouts through 10 MLB innings.
Gutierrez is scheduled to make his second career start Thursday against the Cardinals, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports. Gutierrez had been in line to get the ball for Wednesday's series finale versus Philadelphia, but those plans were dashed due to a rainout in Cincinnati. The Reds would have had the luxury of reordering their rotation after the postponement, but manager David Bell has opted to instead push each of his five starters back a day in the schedule. Luis Castillo, Tyler Mahle and Wade Miley are scheduled to start the final three contests of the four-game series in St. Louis.
