News: Guthrie was announced as the Royals' fifth starter Wednesday, the Kansas City Star reports.
Impact: Guthrie had been pushed a bit by Chris Young during camp, but it looks like manager Ned Yost will continue to roll with his veteran to close out the rotation. Guthrie will be 36 in early April, and considering that he hasn't posted a K/9 rate higher than 6.0 since 2007, he isn't an attractive fantasy option outside of deeper AL-only formats.

News: Guthrie will "assume his regular position in the back of the club's rotation" in 2015, the Kansas City Star reports.
Impact: Guthrie was moved down to make a start in the minors instead of his regular spring start earlier in the week, as it was instead Chris Young who took the hill with the big league squad. However, Guthrie had been dealing with an illness of late, which likely had more to do with the switch than any pending demotion. The club fully expects the veteran to round out the rotation this year, but being a contract season with many young arms on the horizon in the organization, it could be one of Guthrie's last years with the team.
