According to Troy Renck of the Denver Post, Jeremy Guthrie is poised to return from the disabled list after tossing four scoreless innings this afternoon in a minor league rehab start with High-A Modesto.
Guthrie, who landed on the disabled list two weeks ago after spraining his right shoulder in a bicycle accident, allowed only two hits while striking out four and walking just one. Barring any setbacks, the 33-year-old right-hander is expected to rejoin the Rockies’ rotation for a start Tuesday against the Giants.
Guthrie was acquired from the Orioles in in early February in exchange for right-handers Jason Hammel and Matt Lindstrom. He had an ugly 5.92 ERA and 5/10 K/BB ratio in 24 1/3 innings over his first four starts prior to the injury. Long way to go, obviously, but that deal is looking pretty good for the Orioles thus far.
