Seattle has activated Franklin Gutierez from the disabled list after the center fielder missed the past two months with a concussion, demoting Casper Wells to Triple-A to make room on the roster.

Gutierrez hit .333 with two homers in seven games on a minor-league rehab assignment and most importantly reported no post-concussion symptoms.

Before the concussion Gutierrez spent the first two months of the season on the DL with a torn pectoral muscle. He’s played just 13 games this season and the former Gold Glover was also limited to just 92 games last season due to other health problems.
