Guthrie has been released by the Marlins, Tim Grubbs of Cox Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Guthrie was attempting his second major league comeback this season after being released by the Padres in June. In six starts for Triple-A New Orleans, the 37-year-old compiled a 3-3 record and an 8.44 ERA. It remains to be seen whether another team will take a chance on Guthrie as the season enters the homestretch.

Guthrie signed a minor league deal with the Marlins on Monday and will report to Triple-A, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 37-year-old opted out of his deal with the Padres earlier this month, and he'll now join the Marlins in hopes of reinvigorating his career. Guthrie made 30 appearances, including 24 starts, for the Royals last season but struggled in 11 Triple-A appearances for San Diego, amassing a 6.60 ERA and 1.57 WHIP across 60 innings. Expectations will be low in Miami, but if Guthrie is able to string together a few solid starts at Triple-A, he could work his way into a spot start or two at the major league level.

Guthrie plans to opt out of his Triple-A contract with the Padres to become a free agent, Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 37-year-old owns a very poor 6.60 ERA and 1.57 WHIP through 11 starts at the Triple-A level this season. This opt out could provide the change of scenery necessary to get his season back on track, but his days as an effective major league starter could be over.

Guthrie signed a minor league deal with the Padres on Friday, Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 36-year-old went 8-8 with a disappointing 5.95 ERA with the Royals in 2015. His 5.14 ERA in spring training was likely a reason the Rangers released him, and he will look to start fresh with the Padres heading into the season. It is possible Guthrie could push for the fifth spot in the rotation or simply serve as organizational depth, depending on how he performs.

Guthrie was granted his release from the Rangers on Monday, John Blake of the Texas Rangers reports.

EDGE Analysis

Guthrie was in the mix for the fifth starter spot until Yu Darvish's expected return in May, but the Rangers have decided to go elsewhere for that position. Guthrie has a lot of major league experience, which could help him land on another major league roster, although the back issues he's been having this spring could also deter some teams. With the veteran out of the fold, AJ Griffin and Nick Martinez are the two remaining competitors for the final rotation spot.

Guthrie (back) was cleared Sunday and is tentatively scheduled to pitch Tuesday, Stefan Stevenson of the Wort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Guthrie had been previously reported to be lined up for a return Monday, but given that it's only spring training, the simply takeaway is that he's about to return to the mound.

Guthrie (back) will pitch in a spring training game Monday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Guthrie was scratched from pitching in a game Thursday due to tightness in his back, but he should be back in action soon enough. Any more setbacks would be rough for the 36-year-old, as making the 25-man roster will be difficult enough given his 5.95 ERA in 2015.

Guthrie is a scratch from pitching against the Royals on Thursday due to a lower back injury, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The seriousness of his injury is not known at the moment, but he will have to remain healthy and pitch well throughout spring training if he wants to make the Rangers' Opening Day roster. The 36-year-old is coming off a dreadful 2015 that saw him post a 5.95 ERA in 148.3 innings pitched.

Guthrie agreed to a minor league contract with the Rangers on Saturday, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

He was clobbered to the tune of a 5.95 ERA and 1.55 WHIP last season, making the Royals' decision to decline Guthrie's option for 2016 an easy one. The right-hander will now head to Texas to provide depth to a rotation with health question marks in Yu Darvish (elbow) and Colby Lewis (knee), but Guthrie's recent track record should keep him out of consideration in standard mixed-leagues formats.
