Gutierrez Flies Back to Seattle For Health Reasons

Posted: Updated:

PEORIA, Ariz. - Seattle Mariners starting center fielder Franklin Gutierrez has returned to Seattle to have additional exams for stomach issues that hampered him during the 2010 season.

Manager Eric Wedge says Thursday that Gutierrez flew back to Seattle on Wednesday night and should be back at the Mariners camp on Friday.

Gutierrez has been bothered on and off by his stomach in recent days. Gutierrez was slowed periodically during the last season by the stomach problem that caused him to lose weight.

Wedge says that Gutierrez was fine when he arrived at spring training and has participated in all drills until Thursday. Wedge says the Mariners are trying to be "proactive with it" and keep ahead of any of the problems Gutierrez experienced last season.
