Gutierrez still feeling effects from concussion
SEATTLE -- Injured outfielder Franklin Gutierrez is still dealing with the effects of a concussion he suffered almost a month ago, and the Mariners are uncertain when the former Gold Glover will return.

"We're not exactly sure what Gutierrez's time is right now. He's still being evaluated," manager Eric Wedge said prior to Tuesday's game. "He had tests yesterday and had more tests today. ... They're just checking him some more, making sure that nothing else is going on. We should know more probably after Wednesday."

Gutierrez was placed on the disabled list after suffering a concussion when he was hit in the head by a pickoff attempt on June 28. He was working back slowly, but his physical activity was shut down on Saturday.

This is the second stint on the disabled list this year for Gutierrez, who started the season with a torn pectoral and plantar fasciitis and didn't play a game with the Mariners until June 14. This is the second consecutive season Gutierrez has missed significant time.
