Orioles claim Guthrie off of waivers

New, 1 comment

The Baltimore Orioles have claimed Jeremy Guthrie off of waivers from the Cleveland Indians.

I touched on the Guthrie DFA a week ago. I'm a little surprised Cleveland couldn't get anything for Guthrie, and I'm a little surprised Tampa Bay and Kansas City both passed on him (Baltimore was 5th in the waiver priority order).

The Orioles DFA'd AA reliever Marino Salas to make room for Guthrie. Salas is too old to have not made it higher than AA, but his numbers aren't bad, and he seems like a mildly intriguing arm. Be interesting to see if he clears waivers.
