Franklin Gutierrez was removed from Sunday's game in the first inning due to an apparent injury.

He appeared to tweak something while attempting to run down a fly ball in the outfield in the first inning and was lifted for a pinch hitter before he took his first at-bat. Look for an update from the team shortly.
May 28 - 4:57 PM

Franklin Gutierrez (hip) went 1-for-3 with a double in his return to action Saturday.

Gutierrez hadn't started a game in a week after injuring his hip, although that was also the last time the Dodgers faced a lefty. He's batting .300/.391/.600 with one homer versus southpaws this season.
May 14 - 8:12 AM

Franklin Gutierrez (hip) struck out as a pinch-hitter on Tuesday night against the Pirates.

Gutierrez injured his hip over the weekend, but it's clearly nothing too serious. The veteran outfielder is batting .300/.391/.550 in 11 games this season even after his 0-for-1 showing on Tuesday. He should draw a couple starts in the Dodgers' outfield this week.
May 10 - 8:49 AM

Franklin Gutierrez left Saturday's game against the Padres with an apparent leg injury.

Gutierrez pulled up at third base during the fifth inning and didn't come back out for the bottom half of the frame. He went 0-for-1 with a pair of walks before exiting. Gutierrez spent time on the disabled list with a strained hamstring earlier this year and this could be a recurrence of that injury. Andrew Toles replaced Gutierrez in left field.
May 6 - 11:01 PM

Dodgers activated OF Franklin Gutierrez from the 10-day disabled list.

Gutierrez is back in action for Los Angeles on Tuesday night after missing three weeks with a strained left hamstring. The veteran outfielder should resume starting against left-handers.
May 2 - 5:40 PM

Franklin Gutierrez (hamstring) will be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

Gutierrez will have missed three weeks of action with a strained left hamstring. He'll resume his role as a platoon bat versus left-handers.
May 1 - 7:38 PM

Franklin Gutierrez (hamstring) won't be activated from the disabled list until next week.

The hope had been that he would be ready to return this weekend against the Phillies, but Gutierrez is only at about 80 percent with his running to this point. He'll return to a platoon role versus lefties when he's ready.
Apr 24 - 8:47 PM

Franklin Gutierrez (hamstring) is scheduled to play in a rehab game with High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Saturday.

If that rehab game goes well, the veteran outfielder could rejoin the Dodgers next Monday in San Francisco. Gutierrez was placed on the 10-day disabled list April 12 with a left hamstring strain, after going 3-for-13 over his first six regular-season games.
Apr 18 - 7:30 PM

Franklin Gutierrez (hamstring) did some hitting on the field Monday.

Gutierrez is eligible for activation from the disabled list on Friday, although it's unclear if he'll be ready at that time. He'll obviously need to test out his left hamstring with some running first.
Apr 17 - 6:03 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said that Franklin Gutierrez's hamstring injury will take between one and three weeks to heal.

Roberts called the one-week timetable the best-case scenario, with the three-week timetable standing as the worst-case scenario. Gutierrez strained his left hamstring while running the bases against the Cubs on Monday. Trayce Thompson was called up for outfield insurance after Gutierrez hit the disabled list on Wednesday.
Apr 12 - 6:32 PM

Dodgers placed OF Franklin Gutierrez on the 10-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Gutierrez initially strained his hamstring on Monday while running the bases against the Cubs. There is no current timetable for his return. With Gutierrez hitting the disabled list, the Dodgers are calling up Trayce Thompson to pad out their outfield depth.
Apr 12 - 4:21 PM

Franklin Gutierrez (hamstring) is on the Dodgers' bench Wednesday versus the Cubs.

Gutierrez injured his left hamstring while running the bases Monday. The severity of that injury remains unclear. Andrew Toles is starting in left field and batting leadoff on Wednesday night against Chicago right-hander John Lackey.
Apr 12 - 4:05 PM

Franklin Gutierrez was lifted from Monday's game against the Cubs with a left hamstring injury.

Gutierrez was gunned down at second base on a failed hit-and-run in the second inning and evidently must have tweaked his hammy in the process. The severity isn't known at this point, but given Gutierrez's injury history isn't hard to be optimistic.
Apr 10 - 10:33 PM

Franklin Gutierrez is starting in left field and batting cleanup for the Dodgers on Tuesday night against the Padres.

Gutierrez gets that juicy lineup spot because the Padres are starting left-hander Clayton Richard. The veteran outfielder could carry sneaky fantasy value this year in leagues that allow for daily lineup changes. He won't start against many righties.
