Rangers Grant Veteran RHP Jeremy Guthrie His Release



    Under the Tucson Sun
    NBC 5 Sports

    Veteran right-hander Jeremy Guthrie has been granted his release by the Texas Rangers since he won't be on their 40-man roster.

    The move Monday came a week before the Rangers play their season opener. It allows Guthrie to seek a major league job.

    The 36-year-old Guthrie signed a minor league deal right before spring training. He had a 5.14 ERA in three Cactus League appearances, allowing three home runs with five strikeouts over seven innings.

    In a Triple-A game last week, he gave up three solo homers over five innings.

    Guthrie started Game 7 of the 2014 World Series for Kansas City, but was left off the Royals' postseason roster last season.

    He is 91-108 with a 4.37 ERA in 305 career games for Cleveland, Baltimore, Colorado and Kansas City.
