Franklin Gutierrez has been injury prone since he signed a four year contract with the Mariners back in 2009. He recently signed a 1 million dollar contract with the m’s with heavy incentives. Now he is back on the disabled list and will take the entire 2014 season off. Apparently he suffers from gastrointestinal problems. He suffered them in his 2013 campaign.
I just hope the former gold glover can eventually maybe reach his gold glove caliber again.
He is 31 years of age. In the infamous departure if Gutierrez it makes room for Fernando Rodney. Fernando spent the last two seasons with the Devil Rays. He will be the Seattle Mariners closer moving Farquhar to the setup role. I see a punishing 8th and 9th inning for anyone facing the Mariners.
