Pitcher Jeremy Guthrie finds off-season workout partner on Twitter
Major league pitcher Jeremy Guthrie is a free agent and needs to keep his arm fresh this winter while waiting waiting for a team to call. There’s just one problem: He doesn’t have a workout partner.
So Guthrie put out a call on Twitter.
WANTED: Catch partner (today)— Jeremy Guthrie (@TheRealJGuts) December 30, 2015
Where: Near Westport in KC
When: 11:30-12:00 12/30/15
**Must catch well & throw over 90 feet w/good aim.
He got a response from a guy named A.J. Salinas, a junior utilityman for Graceland University in Iowa.
Guthrie decided Salinas’s résumé was good enough and asked him if he knew a spot they could go to.
And then they actually met up and had a catch!
See? Sometimes it pays to be on Twitter.
