Jeremy Guthrie puts one theory about his 2009 season to rest

O's pitcher Jeremy Guthrie says it's too early to predict whether he and the club will avoid an arbitration hearing.

Guthrie's agent recently submitted a salary request of 3.625 million for 2010 while the O's countered at 2.3 million if it gets to an actual hearing.

"It's so early in the process, we filed numbers. I think the numbers set up the parameters for future negotiations. We'll let the process work out and hopefully it works out where both sides are pleased," the 30-year-old right hander said.
