Description: Franklin Gutierrez will return to Seattle on a new one-year, $1 million deal. SOURCE: Enrique Rojas, ESPN Deportes
Insight: Gutierrez has been a 20/20 threat in the past but that was several years ago. Injuries have limited him to just 173 games over the last three seasons.
 
8/11/2013 1:50:00 PM
Description: Mariners center fielder Franklin Gutierrez (hamstring) has resumed his rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma. His initial 20-day rehab stint expired last week and the team had to wait five days before starting a new one.
Insight: Gutierrez suffered a severe hamstring strain in April, missed two months and suffered another strain just two games after returning. He hasn't played since June 23.
 
6/25/2013 7:37:00 PM

Insight: Gutierrez just returned from the disabled list on June 22 after missing two months due to a severe hamstring strain. He's back on the sidelines with the same issue.
 
6/25/2013 10:22:00 AM
Description: Mariners center fielder Franklin Gutierrez (hamstring) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Pittsburgh.
Insight: Gutierrez has been good when he's in the lineup (.267, 5 HR, 11 RBI, .874 OPS in 18 games), it's just he can't keep himself on the field. Of course, that's always been his problem.
 
5/15/2013 5:59:00 PM
Description: Mariners center fielder Franklin Gutierrez (hamstring) could go out on a rehab assignment Thursday or Friday, according to Greg Johns of MLB.com.
Insight: Gutierrez suffered a strained hamstring on April 22. He was hitting .259 with four homers prior to his injury.

4/25/2013 8:32:00 PM
Description: Mariners center fielder Franklin Gutierrez will be sidelined for the next 2-to-3 weeks as he recovers from a Grade 1 hamstring strain. SOURCE: Shannon Drayer, MyNorthwest.com
Insight: Gutierrez has historically been a slow healer so three weeks to a month is probably a more realistic timetable. Endy Chavez (.263, 0 HR, 3 RBI) has been starting at center field in Gutierrez's place.
 
4/23/2013 4:55:00 PM
Description: Seattle center fielder Franklin Gutierrez (hamstring) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list.
Insight: Gutierrez (.259, 4 HR, 10 RBI) has been in and out of the lineup lately with groin issues and suffered a hamstring strain Monday when he attempted to make a diving catch. The oft-injured outfielder has missed 197 games and counting since the start of the 2011 season.
 
4/22/2013 10:17:00 PM
Description: Seattle center fielder Franklin Gutierrez exited Monday's game against Houston because of hamstring tightness. SOURCE: Greg Johns, MLB.com
Insight: Gutierrez (.259, 4 HR, 10 RBI) just keeps finding new ways to get hurt. He's now missed 197 games since the start of the 2011 season. This latest injury should sideline Gutierrez for at least the next couple of days.
 
4/20/2013 6:22:00 PM
Description: Mariners center fielder Franklin Gutierrez (groin) will return to the lineup Saturday against the Rangers.
Insight: Gutierrez has missed four of the last six games due to a groin issue.
 
4/16/2013 5:57:00 PM
Description: Mariners center fielder Franklin Gutierrez (groin) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Tigers.
Insight: Gutierrez missed Saturday and Sunday's games. The outfielder already has four homers in 37 at-bats after hitting five in 472 at-bats combined over the past two seasons.
 
4/13/2013 8:40:00 PM
Description: Mariners center fielder Franklin Gutierrez won't be in the lineup Saturday against Texas. Gutierrez is dealing with groin tightness.
Insight: After a few sub-par seasons it looks like Gutierrez has finally found his power stroke again (.649 SLUG, .956 OPS). Former Baltimore outfielder Endy Chavez (.250 AVG) will take over in center field with Gutierrez getting the night off.
 
8/29/2012 7:51:00 PM
Description: Seattle center fielder Franklin Gutierrez will be on the sidelines for Wednesday's tilt against Minnesota.
Insight: Gutierrez is 1-for-6 with two walks and a pair of stolen bases since his return from the DL on Monday. Chone Figgins (.189, 2 HR, 11 RBI) is getting the start in his place.
 
8/27/2012 7:48:00 PM
Description: Mariners outfielder Franklin Gutierrez has been activated from the 15-day disabled list. He'll bat second and start in center field Monday night against the Twins.

8/13/2012 10:27:00 PM
Description: Seattle outfielder Franklin Gutierrez has encountered a setback in his recovery from a concussion that has sidelined him since late June.
Insight: At this point, 2012 looks like a lost season for Gutierrez, who has only been healthy enough to compete in 13 games at the major league level this year.
 
6/29/2012 12:26:00 PM
Description: Mariners outfielder Franklin Gutierrez was diagnosed with a concussion after getting hit in the face by an errant throw Thursday night in a game against Boston.
Insight: Gutierrez should be a candidate for MLB's new 7-day DL for head injuries. He is hitting .267 with two homers and nine RBIs in 13 games since his return from the disabled list on June 14.
 
6/13/2012 9:12:00 PM
Description: The Mariners activated outfielder Franklin Gutierrez from the DL on Wednesday. Gutierrez has yet to play in a major league game so far in 2012, missing time with pectoral and heel injuries.
Insight: Gutierrez is expected to start in center field in Thursday's series finale against the Padres. He was terrible last season (.224, 1 HR, 19 RBIs) but he finished with 12 HRs and 64 RBIs in 2010, so you might want to keep an eye out for Gutierrez if you're struggling to find a fourth or fifth outfielder.
 
4/1/2012 3:11:00 PM
Description: Franklin Gutierrez (pectoral injury) has been cleared to throw and should be able to return to Seattle's outfield sometime in late April.
Insight: Gutierrez was a fantasy no-show last year, (.224, 1 HR, 19 RBIs), and there's nothing to think that he won't be again in 2012. Gutierrez is not a likely candidate for a rebound season. If you have a chance to take him, pass on that opportunity.

Description: Franklin Gutierrez will start his AAA rehab assignment this weekend. Source:Greg Johns on Twitter
Insight: Gutierrez has a nice mix of speed and power and should be considered a fourth outfielder when healthy.
 
3/31/2011 6:09:00 AM
Description: Medication has help to make Franklin Gutierrez's stomach issues more tolerable. SOURCE: MLB
Insight: He has been dealing with digestive problems for almost a year and it affected his 2010 performance. He will start the season on the DL but the team doesn't expect him to miss much more than a couple weeks.
