Orioles Trade Guthrie to Rockies for Lindstrom, Hammel

The Baltimore Orioles have traded their Opening Day starter Jeremy Guthrie to the Colorado Rockies in exchange for Matt Lindstrom and Jason Hammel, according to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun.

Ken Rosenthal is reporting that Guthrie has agreed to a 1-year deal with the Rockies, confirming the trade. The Orioles have designated lefty Clay Rapada for assignment to make room for the additions, according to Brit Ghiroli.

Guthrie is set to become a free agent after the season:
