Guthrie Believed To Be Seeking Three Years, $34MM

Jeremy Guthrie is believed to be seeking a three-year contract worth $34MM this offseason, reports Bob Dutton of The Kansas City Star. The free agent right-hander is a Brodie Van Wagenen client.

"I think he’s looking at other opportunities, and we’ll see where that goes," said Royals GM Dayton Moore. "It’s hard to predict what is going to happen with a lot of these guys in free agency. It only takes one or two clubs…He’s looking to get the best deal."

Guthrie, 33, pitched to a 3.16 ERA in 91 innings for the Royals after being acquired from the Rockies at midseason. The former Oriole is one of only ten pitchers to throw at least 175 innings every season since 2007, so he offers lots of reliability. Ben Nicholson-Smith examined Guthrie's free agent stock in September, and the Royals have expressed interest in bringing him back.
