Rockies Trade Jeremy Guthrie To Royals For Jonathan Sanchez

The Colorado Rockies traded veteran pitcher Jeremy Guthrie to the Kansas City Royals in exchange for Johnathan Sanchez on Friday, according to Jon Morosi of FOX Sports. Guthrie is 33 years old and he posted a 6.35 ERA over 90.2 innings in 2012 during his time with the Rockies.

Meanwhile, the Royals recently designated lefty Jonathan Sanchez for assignment after the 29-year-old stumbled his way to a 7.76 ERA over 53.1 innings with the major league team. As Rob Neyer of MLB Nation points out, the Royals are likely still kicking themselves for trading for Sanchez in the first place:

Just to review:

1. Last winter, the Royals traded Melky Cabrera for Jonathan Sanchez.

2. Melky Cabrera leads the planet in hits.

3. Jonathan Sanchez leads the planet in really terrible pitching.
