Blue Jays Interested In Adding Jeremy Guthrie

The current outlook of the Blue Jays rotation is so bleak there are rumblings the team is considering adding Jeremy Guthrie.  Yeah, it’s that bad.  Guthrie, 33, is having an abysmal season out in Colorado currently sporting a 7.02 ERA.  In 59 innings, Guthrie has given up a whopping 85 hits (opponents are hitting .330) and has allowed 15 homeruns (2.3 HR/9) while striking out very few hitters (4.6 K/9).

The price is apparently minimal (obviously) and there is only one way for his season to go (hopefully) but this is clearly an emergency move should Alex Anthopoulos pull the trigger.  The latest rumour making the rounds are the cost would be firstbase prospect Mike McDade.

ZIPS projects Guthrie to post a 4.72 ERA, 4.88 FIP, 5.0 K/9 over 103 innings to finish the season.

  • Not sure where Pat Tabler is getting his data but Pitch F/X has Stroman's curveball thrown 12.3% and is easily his least effective pitch. 2 days ago
  • Daniel Norris is the man and I hope he really develops into an ace but that life sized Jebus cross around his neck is a tad obnoxious. 2 days ago
  • Has a team wasted more money on scouting potential Cuban and Asian free agents than the #BlueJays? Motto: scout everyone, sign nobody. 3 days ago
  • Christian Vasquez is such a great receiver. He makes clear balls look like near strikes. Jays lack that top notch framing from catcher. 4 days ago
  • Green light on 3-0 for a heavily slumping Jose Bautista is not smart. 4 days ago
