Seattle Mariners Recall Carlos Peguero, Disable Franklin Gutierrez

MLB News: The Seattle Mariners recalled outfielder Carlos Peguero from Triple-A Tacoma to take the roster spot of outfielder Franklin Gutierrez who was placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained right hamstring. Peguero should see a good portion of time while Gutierrez heals. He will most likely  be out for three-four weeks.

Fantasy Ramifications: While not a stud by any means, Gutierrez is a competent fantasy outfielder. He should return back to full strength with the bat once he heals, but playing center field, having a strained hamstring is a tough injury to recover from. Needing to accelerate and cover much of the outfield, the risk of reinjury is there. Peguero holds no fantasy value.
