The Marlins have agreed to a minor-league deal with right-hander Jeremy Guthrie, according to FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal. Guthrie will report to Triple-A New Orleans.

Guthrie, 37, joins his third organization of the season after stints with the Rangers and Padres. He has not yet appeared in the majors this year, as he was cut by Texas at the end of spring training and spent two full months at Triple-A for San Diego.

In 11 starts with Triple-A El Paso, Guthrie posted a 3-5 record and 6.60 ERA while walking 19 and striking out 37 in 60 innings. He last appeared in the majors with the Royals last season, posting a 5.95 ERA in 30 starts for the World Champions.

For Miami, Guthrie will provide some veteran rotation depth behind a group that includes Jose Fernandez, Adam Conley, Wei-Yin Chen, Tom Koehler and Paul Clemens at the major-league level. He is a veteran of 12 major-league seasons with four different clubs.
