Jeremy Guthrie won’t be making his scheduled start tonight against the Tigers, but the Orioles right-hander has been released from the hospital after receiving treatment for pneumonia.

Guthrie actually broke the news himself via Twitter:

I’m free! On my way out of hospital & on the road to recovery. Special thanx to the nurses, doctors & my sweet wife. Thanks for your prayers.

He spent two nights in the hospital, but Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports that the Orioles are still hopeful he’ll be able to jump back into the rotation as soon as Sunday. Brad Bergesen is starting in his place versus Justin Verlander tonight.

ARLINGTON, Texas — Free-agent ace Jacob deGrom and the Texas Rangers agreed to a five-year contract Friday.

The two-time Cy Young Award winner leaves the New York Mets after nine seasons — the past two shortened by injuries.

After making his first start last season in early August, deGrom went 5-4 with a 3.08 ERA. He helped the Mets reach the playoffs, then opted out of his contract to become a free agent.

Texas announced the signing Friday night after the 34-year-old deGrom passed his physical.
