After today's Mariners game Eric Wedge said Gutierrez isn't too far from a return and that he is ahead of Carp .— Shannon Drayer (@shannondrayer) April 4, 2012
One way to read into this is that Franklin Gutierrez is recovering from his injury very well. The other way to read into this is that Mike Carp is recovering from his injury less well. In any case, neither guy is all that far off, and Gutierrez could beat his assumed timetable. Hey there, Michael Saunders! Guti's creeping up on you! Guti's creeping up on you! Hit! Hit the ball! Hit the ball! Hit the ball! Hit the ball hard! So much rests on these weeks! Think about how much rests on these weeks and then hit the baseballs hard and consistently!
