Rockies reportedly want to deal Guthrie

DENVER, Colo. — The possibility exists that former Ashland High standout Jeremy Guthrie has thrown his last pitch for the Rockies.

Colorado is aggressively trying to trade the veteran right-hander and has talked with the Toronto Blue Jays, according to two major-league sources.

In that scenario, the Rockies would receive a minor-league prospect with Toronto absorbing the roughly $4.9 million on Guthrie's one-year, $8.2-million arbitration contract.

After Tuesday's 7-2 loss to Philadelphia, Rockies manager Jim Tracy said Guthrie will be moved to the bullpen and the team will go with an unconventional four-man rotation with each starter being limited to 75 pitches.
