The Red Sox released Gutierrez on Sunday, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.
ANALYSIS
Gutierrez will be seeking a new organization for the fifth time in less than a year. After concluding the 2023 season with the Reds, Gutierrez elected free agency in the offseason before joining the Marlins on a one-year deal in February. He was then designated for assignment in April and claimed off waivers by the Brewers, then DFA'd again later that month before landing in Boston. Gutierrez never made any appearances with Boston before he was designated for assignment earlier this month and outrighted to Triple-A Worcester, with whom he compiled a 9.00 ERA and 2.75 WHIP over eight innings prior to being cut loose.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2023
2022
2017
2016
Gutierrez's rookie season in 2021 finished on a sour note and that carried over into 2022, to say the least. The right-hander was demoted to the bullpen after putting up a 7.71 ERA over his first eight starts and he lasted just two relief outings before going down with an elbow injury which eventually required Tommy John surgery in late July. Gutierrez could potentially make it back late this season, particularly if the Reds opt to build him back up as a reliever. He's certainly not going to have any fantasy value in 2023, though.
Gutierrez made his big-league debut last season and started 22 games for the Reds, and he finished with a 4.74 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 88:46 K:BB across 114 innings. The 26-year-old has a solid four-pitch mix but had an unexceptional 17.7 percent strikeout rate and 9.3 percent walk rate. Gutierrez will begin 2022 in Cincinnati's starting rotation, but given his low strikeout numbers and the fact the team is opting for a rebuild, he's unlikely to be a consistent fantasy asset outside of deeper formats.
The Reds signed the 21-year-old Cuban righty for $4.75 million in late August, which amounts to a $9.5 million commitment from the team, as they exceeded their international bonus pool and incurred a 100 percent tax. At 6-foot-3, 175 pounds, he has a more projectable frame than some of the other top pitchers from last year's international class. Gutierrez can touch 97 mph with his fastball, but typically sits in the low-90s while also bringing a potentially plus curveball to the table. He has flashed an average changeup, and further development of that pitch will be critical for him to make it as a starter. Given his age and repertoire, he should be able to handle a full season league in 2017, likely getting assigned to the Midwest League or Florida State League. Based on the recent track record of Cuban pitchers that come stateside, it is fair to assign more bullpen risk to Gutierrez than a typical pitching prospect with his physical tools.
Gutierrez was perhaps the top pitching prospect in Cuba, winning the Serie Nacional's rookie of the year in the 2014-15 season. In August, Baseball America ranked him as the No. 12 player in Cuba. At age 19, Gutierrez could command a large contract from a MLB team, as he's a 6-foot-3 right-hander with a plus curveball and a projectable frame that should allow him to increase the velocity on his fastball (currently 88-93 mph). Gutierrez also mixes in a changeup and he projects as a starter in the big leagues long-term. However, it may be well into 2016 before he signs as he'll need to secure residency in another country and be declared a free agent in order to sign with a big league club.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Garnering interest
PFree Agent  
November 24, 2023
Gutierrez, who missed the season with a right elbow injury, is drawing interest in free agency from several teams, Francys Romero of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Gutierrez had Tommy John surgery in July of 2022 and wasn't able to make it back to the majors in 2023 as hoped after he had a setback. He elected free agency after the Reds removed him from their 40-man roster last month. The 28-year-old appears to be healthy now, and it sounds like he should have no trouble landing a new deal.
