Mariners | Franklin Gutierrez continues to sit
Seattle Mariners OF Franklin Gutierrez (legs) isn't in the lineup for either of his team's games on Friday, March 15, and hasn't played in five days because he's been experiencing what he called tightness in his legs. He said that it's nothing to worry about. He's hit and worked out every day, so the soreness doesn't appear to be a cause for concern and the M's are being extra cautious.
Fantasy Tip: As Johns points out, however, Guti's health record can't be taken lightly. Still, Seattle is probably just doing the smart thing at this stage of camp. Keep in mind that much of the outfielder's time missed could be attributed, even indirectly, to the mysterious intestinal malady he dealt with a couple of years ago, and that's now under control. He's an interesting bounce-back candidate in deep leagues because he should be very cheap.
