Colorado Rockies Acquire SP Jeremy Guthrie From Orioles For Jason Hammel, Matt Lindstrom

The Colorado Rockies bolstered their pitching staff early Monday by acquiring veteran SP Jeremy Guthrie from the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for SP Jason Hammel and RP Matt Lindstrom, according to a report by Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun and confirmed by FOX's Ken Rosenthal.

According to Guthrie's agent, the pitcher also agreed to a one year deal with the Rockies that will make him a free agent after the season, though terms of the contract have yet to be announced. Guthrie finished last year with a 4.33 ERA for the Orioles, but he managed to keep his ERA under four in three of his five seasons in Baltimore.
