Guthrie was Baltimore's opening day starter in 2011 and posted a record of 9-17 with a 4.33 earned run average in 34 games, including 32 starts, last year.
The 32-year-old right-hander spent five years with the Orioles after being claimed off waivers from Cleveland before the 2007 season. He has a career mark of 47-65 with a 4.19 ERA in 177 games, all but 16 of which have come with Baltimore.
Before the trade became official, Guthrie leaked word of it via his Twitter account, writing, "Toto, I have a feeling we're not in Baltimore anymore."
Guthrie soon after thanked the Orioles organization for giving him a chance after Cleveland gave up on him following 16 appearances over three seasons.
"I'm grateful for my 5 yrs spent in a special baseball city playing for an organization rich in tradition," he later tweeted.
Hammel will join his third team after pitching for Tampa Bay from 2006-08 and Colorado from 2009-11. The 29-year-old right-hander is 34-45 with a 4.99 ERA in 169 career games, including 115 starts, and was 7-13 with a 4.76 ERA in 32 games, 27 starts, in 2011.
Lindstrom was 2-2 with a 3.00 ERA in 63 appearances last season, his lone year with the Rockies. The 31-year-old righty is 12-15 with 45 saves and a 3.81 ERA in five seasons with Florida, Houston and Colorado.
