Gutierrez suffers right pec injury

Gutierrez was scratched from the afternoon's intrasquad game and underwent an MRI test later in the day after being taken off the field in the morning workout after injuring himself while making throws in the outfield.

out for a month

Quote:
Several people emailed Geoff Baker yesterday in a bit of a furor, demanding to know why he was already doubling the amount of time the Mariners say Franklin Gutierrez "will be out" with his partially torn right pectoral.

Part of the confusion centers around an understanding over just what it means when the Mariners say Gutierrez could resume normal baseball activities in four weeks. For one, it doesn't mean he'll be able to step out on a field and take on the Oakland Athletics in four weeks. Maybe if Gutierrez was playing for a company softball team. But not in the majors.

One of the more under appreciated aspects of Major League Baseball surrounds the kind of conditioning it takes to play the sport at its highest level. This isn't meant as a shot at fans, who aren't given much insight into the behind-the-scenes training these athletes must go through every day.

And that's a big part of the confusion over why I'm saying Gutierrez isn't coming back until at least early May.

There's a reason baseball players go through seven weeks of spring training. Most of them arrive here in top physical shape and then use those additional weeks to get used to playing high level baseball again. To see those 95 mph heaters and make contact. To know where to throw the ball when a play is unfolding in front of them and baserunners are flying at top speed.

In Gutierrez's case, he's going to have to go through that all over again. And not until the end of this new month, at the very least.
