Jeremy Shane Guthrie (born April 8, 1979, in Roseburg, Oregon) is a Major League Baseball right-handed starting pitcher for the Baltimore Orioles.


Early life and education

Guthrie was born in Roseburg, Oregon and grew up in Ashland, Oregon, attending Ashland High School. At AHS, Guthrie excelled in basketball, football, baseball and even the classroom, where he was class valedictorian. After high school, he attended Brigham Young University before transferring to Stanford University, where he was a starting pitcher. At Stanford, he studied sociology; he continues to pursue his degree in the offseason. Guthrie served a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Spain.[1] He currently lives in Arizona with his wife Jenny and his daughter Avery and son, Hudson. [2]

Baseball career



Was the ace of the Stanford University staff and formed a battery with current Giants first baseman Ryan Garko. Pitched in the regionals that season against MAAC conference champion Marist College in the first game and won 5-3. The Cardinal made it all the way to the World Series final in Omaha, but got blown out in the Championship game against the Miami Hurricanes 11-1.


Guthrie spent most of 2006 season with the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons, but was twice called up to the majors to join the Cleveland Indians as a relief pitcher. He wore jersey number 57 for both the Bisons and the Indians.


On January 19, 2007, Guthrie was designated for assignment and was picked up by the Baltimore Orioles.

During the 2007 season, he became one of the best and most consistent pitchers in the American League, through June 21, ranking 2nd in ERA and allowing more than 2 earned runs in just 1 out of 10 starts. He was also 1st in the AL in WHIP.[3]

After being called up to fill a spot in the Baltimore Orioles' bullpen and then moving into the starting rotation, Guthrie enjoyed a breakout year in 2007. Through the end of July 2007, Guthrie had a 7-3 record in 17 starts to go with a sparkling 2.89 ERA and a 1.027 WHIP (second only to 2-time Cy Young award winner Johan Santana), albeit in only 124.7 innings of work. Guthrie's rise to unexpected success in the first half of the season led to consideration for the American League's Rookie of the Year Award.


In August of 2008, Guthrie recorded his first career complete game, defeating the Seattle Mariners 3-1. Throughout the 2008 season, Guthrie emerged as the staff ace of the Baltimore Orioles.


Guthrie pitched for Team USA in the 2009 World Baseball Classic. Guthrie pitched on Opening Day for the Orioles against the New York Yankees before a record Opening Day crowd at Camden Yards. Guthrie pitched six innings and gave up three runs.
