At long last, the Mariners have activated outfielder Franklin Gutierrez from the 60-day disabled list, reports Ryan Divish. Gutierrez had been sidelined since April 22 with a strained right hamstring, just the latest in a series of injuries that has cut into a majority of the 30-year-old’s playing time over the last three years. Since 2011, Gutierrez has played in 148 of a possible 399 games (37%).
Gutierrez will start in center and bat sixth tonight, attempting to pick up where he left off. He had an .823 OPS through his first 57 plate appearances of the 2013 season.
In additional roster news, the Mariners designated Eric Thames for assignment and placed Michael Morse on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right quad.
