SEATTLE -- With a scheduled off-day from his rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma, Mariners outfielder Franklin Gutierrez (concussion) was back with the big league club on Wednesday. It was the last chance for Gutierrez to work with the trainers before the Mariners take off for a seven-game road trip, which begins Friday.
"Wanted him to come here, get our hands on him, look at him, talk to him, have him work out a bit," manager Eric Wedge said. "He'll be back there playing nine tomorrow. He feels good."
Gutierrez had an impressive day at the plate on Tuesday, hitting two home runs and collecting five RBIs. It was Gutierrez's second two-hit performance in four rehab appearances.
