Mariner Franklin Gutierrez Has Partially Torn Pectoral; Will Start Season On Disabled List

"Franklin Gutierrez won't be playing for the Mariners when the season opens in Japan next month and at this rate, he's unlikely to see any games in the month of April. That's because the Mariners just revealed that Gutierrez has a partially torn right pectoral muscle and will need at least four weeks before resuming normal baseball activity.

That's at least four weeks.

"At this point, we don't know,'' Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik told me moments ago. "Every body responds to things differently. We don't know what he'll be able to do and at this point, we'll probably just ease him into things gradually.''"
