Mariners | Franklin Gutierrez having solid offseason

Seattle Mariners OF Franklin Gutierrez tore it up in winter ball in Venezuela, and the team is hoping he can carry over the momentum into spring training. He batted .349 (30-for-86) with 13 runs scored, six doubles, three home runs and 19 RBIs in 22 games for Leones del Caracas.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez is expected to fill the center field spot for the Mariners if he can stay healthy. During his career, that has been a big if. He was limited to just 40 games last season. He is a solid option in all AL-only fantasy leagues, but he is only worth a spot for depth in deeper mixed formats.
