Add another name to the Tigers’ list of potential pitching acquisitions: Baltimore right-hander Jeremy Guthrie.
The Tigers have interest in Guthrie, sources say, but he’s behind the likes of Ubaldo Jimenez and Hiroki Kuroda on their wish list.
Orioles general manager Andy MacPhail may hesitate to move Guthrie, because he leads the beleaguered Baltimore staff in innings pitched. Guthrie is just 3-13 with a 4.45 ERA, but he offers stability at a time when highly-touted prospects Brian Matusz, Zach Britton, and Chris Tillman have fallen back into the minor leagues.
I think I'd deal Guthrie for maybe Andrew Oliver (hope he returns to 2010 form) + a bit more (maybe Charlie Furbrush as mention in the article).
