Mariners recall outfielder Franklin Gutierrez from rehab assignment

Seattle, WA (Sports Network) – The Seattle Mariners designated pitcher Aaron
Harang for assignment.

The club made the announcement on Monday, prior to the start of a series with
the Texas Rangers, adding that outfielder Franklin Gutierrez was activated
from the 15-day disabled list.

Harang took the loss in Seattle’s 7-1 loss on Sunday against the Angels,
giving up nine hits and seven runs with seven strikeouts and two walks over 5
2/3 innings. That setback pushed his record to 5-11 on the season and his ERA
ballooned to 5.76.

Gutierrez was sidelined since June 23 with a recurrence of hamstring issues,
participating in just two games after missing two months with the same injury.

The 30-year-old Venezuelan is hitting .267 with five home runs and 11 RBI in
just 18 games this season.
