Mariners re-sign Franklin Gutierrez

10 Comments

Last night the Mariners and Franklin Gutierrez were said to be close to a deal and now Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes reports that the two sides have agreed to a one-year, $1 million contract.

According to Rojas the deal also includes $2 million in potential incentives after Gutierrez spent the past three seasons mostly on the disabled list with an assortment of injuries. This year he played just 41 games, but showed good power when healthy enough to be in the lineup and is still just 31 years old.

Gutierrez once looked capable of being one of the better all-around center fielders in the league, but at this point he looks slated for a part-time role.
