Franklin Gutierrez, Mariners Awaiting MRI Results

Tuesday morning, Franklin Gutierrez was practicing baseball, and he was fine. Then, after throwing a baseball, he was not fine, and he was driven away from camp by a Mariners assistant trainer. The word at that point was that Gutierrez had sustained an injury to the shoulder area.

Now, from Greg Johns, we have some more specifics:

"We don’t really know anything yet," manager Eric Wedge said. "We’re waiting on the MRI results and will figure out the game plan after we get that. He felt something in the pec region when we were taking infield today, so we’ll wait and see what the results show and go from there."

I could speculate as to the nature of Gutierrez's injury, but that would probably be unwise. Gutierrez re-joined the Mariners later in the day, and said:

Drayer said that he "looked okay," but looks can deceive. The best-case scenario for Gutierrez and the Mariners is that he's day-to-day. The worst-case scenario is a hell of a lot worse than that.
