Gutierrez (5-3) allowed two earned runs on five hits and three walks with five strikeouts through 6.1 innings, getting the win in Tuesday's 7-4 victory over the Cubs.
Gutierrez coughed up a two-run homer to Anthony Rizzo in the first inning but settled in to deliver a quality start. After striking out just one batter in his previous 10 innings, the right-hander punched out five Tuesday, two shy of his career high. His lack of swing-and-miss stuff (42 strikeouts in 60.2 innings) limits his value from a fantasy perspective, but his ability to provide length for the Reds means he could stick around. He's projected to get the ball again Sunday against the Mets.
Gutierrez will start Tuesday's game against the Cubs, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
Gutierrez has made 10 starts for the Reds to begin the season, and he was recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Friday. Although the right-hander gave up six runs in four innings during his last start, he'll rejoin Cincinnati's rotation Tuesday, while Jeff Hoffman will shift to a bullpen role. Across Gutierrez's 10 starts this year, he's posted a 4.97 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 54.1 innings.
Gutierrez was recalled by the Reds on Friday.
Gutierrez was optioned Tuesday but is allowed to return just three days later with Nick Castellanos (wrist) landing on the injured list. Gutierrez has been a starter in all 10 of his big-league appearances to date as well as in each of his 76 career minor-league outings, but it's unclear if he'll rejoin the Reds' rotation or serve as a bullpen option. Jeff Hoffman returned from a shoulder injury Wednesday and could potentially remain the team's fifth starter.
The Reds optioned Gutierrez to Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday.
It's unclear whether the righty is being demoted for Monday's poor outing or just temporarily making way for an extra reliever as the Reds recover from the 11-inning series opener. Gutierrez had recorded quality starts in his previous two outings, so he'll almost certainly return to the big-league club at some point this season, if not in a few days when his spot in the rotation comes up again. Ashton Goudeau was recalled from Louisville in a corresponding move.
Gutierrez didn't factor into the decision in Monday's wild 15-11 extra-innings loss to the Mets, surrendering six runs on nine hits -- including three home runs -- and two walks over four innings. He struck out only one.
The Reds' bullpen proceeded to serve up four more long balls after his exit, so Gutierrez was hardly alone in having difficulty keeping the ball in the yard, but his issues on that front are nothing new. It's the third time in his last six starts the 25-year-old rookie has been tagged for at least five earned runs, and over that stretch he has a rough 6.61 ERA, 1.72 WHIP, 18:15 K:BB and 2.6 HR/9 through 31.1 innings.
Gutierrez didn't factor into the decision Saturday against the Brewers after tossing six innings of one-run ball, allowing five hits and two walks.
Gutierrez didn't strike out anyone, but he still delivered a strong outing -- he's now gone at least six innings in each of his last two appearances. He has made nine starts this season and five of those have been quality starts. He's posted a decent 4.29 ERA across 50.1 innings.
Gutierrez (4-3) allowed two runs on five hits and two walks with six strikeouts in six innings to earn the win Monday over Kansas City.
Gutierrez got back on track after allowing 14 runs over 15.1 innings his last three starts. The only runs against him Monday came on RBI doubles by Carlos Santana and Jorge Soler. This was also the third time in eight starts Gutierrez didn't allow a home run. The 25-year-old owns a 4.67 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 36:21 K:BB across 44.1 innings this season. He's projected to make his next start this weekend in Milwaukee.
Gutierrez (3-3) allowed six earned runs on six hits and three walks while striking out three across 4.1 innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Padres.
Gutierrez was undone by the long ball, as he was taken yard by Wil Myers, Trent Grisham and Fernando Tatis in his short outing. His final line worsened after he was pulled, as both of his inherited runners were allowed to score. Though he's experienced some success through seven starts, Gutierrez has allowed at least one home run in five of those outings and is allowing 1.9 HR/9 overall. Due to the poor effort, Gutierrez's ERA currently sits at 4.93, and he has a poor 30:19 K:BB across 38.1 frames.
Gutierrez (3-2) took the loss Friday, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks over six-plus innings as the Reds fell 3-2 to Atlanta. He struck out four.
Solo homers by Dansby Swanson and Guillermo Heredia in the sixth and seventh innings were the difference in the game. Gutierrez has three quality starts in six trips to the mound since being added to the big-league rotation and hasn't yet failed to last at least five innings, and he'll carry a 3.97 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 27:16 K:BB through 34 innings into his next outing.
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.
Gutierrez won't pitch Wednesday against the Phillies after the game was postponed due to inclement weather.
Since Wednesday's contest will be made up in late June, it's not yet clear when Gutierrez will make his next start. The right-hander allowed one run on two hits and two walks while striking out three in five innings in his major-league debut against the Cubs on Friday.
Gutierrez is scheduled to start Wednesday's game against the Phillies, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Gutierrez made his major-league debut against the Cubs on Friday and was charged with an unlucky loss in the pitching duel against Adbert Alzolay. However, manager David Bell was pleased with the right-hander's performance, and he'll remain in the rotation for at least one more start after right-hander Jeff Hoffman (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday.
Gutierrez (0-1) allowed one run on two hits and two walks while striking out three in five innings to take the loss against the Cubs on Friday.
Gutierrez was making his major-league debut, and he was quite effective while pitching in favorable conditions as a strong wind was blowing in at Wrigley Field on Friday. He still gave up the lone run of the game via a solo blast by David Bote in the bottom of the fifth inning. If Gutierrez remains with the major-league club, he tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Phillies on Wednesday.
Gutierrez was recalled as expected Friday and will make his major-league debut in a start against the Cubs.
Gutierrez missed the beginning of the year while serving the end of a PED suspension, but he's ready to go now following three strong Triple-A starts. He was quite poor at Triple-A back in 2019, however, struggling to a 6.04 ERA, and the 25-year-old hasn't impressed in the minors since being signed out of Cuba in 2016.
Gutierrez will be called up from Triple-A Louisville to start Friday against the Cubs, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
The 25-year-old was on the restricted list to open the season while serving the end of an 80-game suspension for PEDs, and he'll make his first start in the majors Friday. Gutierrez has pitched well at Louisville through three starts this year, posting a 2.65 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 21:7 K:BB over 17 innings.
Gutierrez was reinstated from the restricted list Sunday.
Gutierrez was issued an 80-game suspension for PEDs in June of 2020, and he served the majority of the ban last season. He threw 137 innings at Triple-A Louisville in 2019, and he could make an impact with the major-league pitching staff at some point during the campaign.
