Kansas City Royals 'remain interested' in Jeremy Guthrie

Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE

Jeremy Guthrie is reportedly looking for a three-year deal, and the Royals are still interested in keeping him around for 2013.

Jeremy Guthrie could remain a Royal next season if the team plays its cards right. After a disastrous start to the 2012 season with the Colorado Rockies that saw him on pace to put up career-worst numbers, Guthrie was traded from the Mile High City to Kansas City. There, he steadied himself and pitched quite well for the team down the stretch. With the Royals, Guthrie put up a 5-3 record and posted an impressive 3.16 ERA in his 14 starts.

However, he's about to enter free agency. According to Buster Olney on Twitter, the Royals are still interested in the services of Guthrie, who is seeking a three-year deal. In 2012, he was given an $8.2 million salary when he joined the Rockies in the preseason.

Since he started off his major-league career in 2004, the right-handed former first-round pick has also seen time for the Cleveland Indians and Baltimore Orioles.
