MLB: Guthrie agrees to $3 million, 1-year contract with Orioles

Associated Press

BALTIMORE Pitcher Jeremy Guthrie and the Baltimore Orioles have agreed to a $3 million, one-year contract that avoided arbitration.

The 30-year-old right-hander receives more than four times the $650,000 he made last year, when he was 10-17 with a 5.04 ERA in 33 starts and a career-high 200 innings.

His agreement was just above the midpoint of $2,962,500. Guthrie had asked for $3,625,000 when exchanging figures with the Orioles last month, and the team had offered $2.3 million.
