Guthrie pitched six shutout innings, giving up five hits and two walks while striking out three, to pick up his fourth win of the season Wednesday against the Reds.

Guthrie (4-2) pitched out of a bases-loaded, one-out predicament in the first inning and won his third straight start. The Royals tied a club record with 24 consecutive scoreless innings, but that streak ended when Ryan Madson relieved Guthrie and allowed a two-out RBI double to Brandon Phillips. The Royals, winners of five of their last six games, are off to the best start in franchise history, and Guthrie will look to pick up his fourth straight win in his next scheduled start Tuesday against the Yankees.

Guthrie picked up his second win of the season on Saturday, allowing two runs on eight hits and a walk over 7.1 innings, striking out three.

It was his first quality start of the season, and shaved his ERA down to a still-unsightly 5.70. Guthrie isn't someone you want to rely on in most fantasy formats, but he'll try to provide another decent outing on Thursday in Texas.

Guthrie surrendered six earner runs on 11 hits in Sunday's loss to the Tigers.

Guthrie was moved up in the rotation to make this start, and it didn't go very well at all. He only recorded one strikeout, and he got hammered all over the park. Guthrie now holds an ERA of 6.52 to go along with a WHIP of 1.59. We wouldn't recommend Guthrie as a valuable fantasy option in the near future.

Guthrie will start for the Royals on Sunday against the Tigers, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports.

The Royals made the rotation switch Friday night, moving Guthrie up to Sunday and pushing Jason Vargas back to Tuesday's series opener against the Indians. For owners of Guthrie in deeper and AL-only formats, the move to facing a potent Tigers' lineup is clearly an undesirable switch. He has yet to face Detroit this season, but had a 7.71 ERA over four starts in 2014. He made it through just 18.2 innings in those outings.

Guthrie (1-1) picked up a no-decision Tuesday against the Indians, allowing six hits and four earned runs in five innings while walking three batters and striking out three others.

Guthrie has yet to go longer than six innings in a game in his past three starts and has a combined nine walks in that span. Heading into this game, he had a FIP of 6.53 and an ERA of 5.50. He'll face the Indians again in his next start Sunday.

Guthrie pitched seven innings Saturday, giving up six hits and four runs.

Guthrie, the fifth starter for the Royals, had been competing with Chris Young in training camp. Manager Ned Yost went with the veteran. Guthrie could be considered in deep AL-only formats.

Guthrie was announced as the Royals' fifth starter Wednesday, the Kansas City Star reports.

Guthrie had been pushed a bit by Chris Young during camp, but it looks like manager Ned Yost will continue to roll with his veteran to close out the rotation. Guthrie will be 36 in early-April, and considering that he hasn't posted a K/9 rate higher than 6.0 since 2007, he isn't an attractive fantasy option outside of deeper AL-only formats.

Guthrie will "assume his regular position in the back of the club's rotation" in 2015, the Kansas City Star reports.

Guthrie was moved down to make a start in the minors instead of his regular spring start earlier in the week, as it was instead Chris Young who took the hill with the big league squad. However, Guthrie had been dealing with an illness of late, which likely had more to do with the switch than any pending demotion. The club fully expects the veteran to round out their rotation this year, but being a contract season with many young arms on the horizon in the organization, it could be one of his last years with the team.

Guthrie will start Game 7 of the World Series on Wednesday, if the Royals manage to extend the series with a win Tuesday, Newsday's Erik Boland reports.

Guthrie has fared reasonably well in his two postseason starts to this point, with seven hits and three earned runs allowed over 10 innings, though he has managed just two strikeouts. If the Royals manage to stay alive with a win Tuesday, it will likely be Guthrie versus Tim Hudson in the deciding Game 7.

Guthrie will pitch Game 3 of the ALCS on Tuesday, the Kansas City Star's Andy McCullough reports.

Game 3 was postponed Monday, but Guthrie will still take the ball Tuesday. The Royals now have the option to pitch James Shields in Game 4, or give him an extra day off and give Jason Vargas the ball Wednesday.
