Rockies Trade Rumors 2012: Colorado Talking To Toronto About Deal For Jeremy Guthrie, According To Report

The Colorado Rockies are actively shopping starter Jeremy Guthrie, and according to a report from Ken Rosenthal, they have had discussions with Toronto about an exchange.

While no deal appears imminent, the teams have discussed an exchange that would send Guthrie to the Jays, according to major-league sources.

The Jays likely would assume a significant portion of Guthrie’s remaining salary – just under $5 million – in exchange for a lesser prospect, possibly Double A first baseman Mike McDade, sources said.

Much like his team, Guthrie has really struggled in 2012; he has a 6.91 ERA in 56 innings of work, with 28 strikeouts and 21 walks. Those numbers may make it hard for the Rockies to get a decent return for Guthrie.

Guthrie, a nine-year MLB veteran, is in his first season with the Rockies. Prior to coming to Colorado, he spent three seasons with Cleveland and five seasons with Baltimore.
