[edit] Biographical Information

Franklin Gutierrez was signed by scout Camilo Pascual for the Los Angeles Dodgers in November 2000. He made his pro debut the next summer with the GCL Dodgers.

In 2010, Gutiérrez broke a record by handling 415 total chances in centerfield without committing a single error. Darryl Hamilton previously held the record, which was set in 1996. He was rewarded by being awarded a Gold Glove as one of the American League's three best defensive outfielders after the season.

He missed the beginning of the 2012 season with an injury, only making his debut on June 14th. In only his 13th game back, he was hit on the head by an errant pick-off attempt by Boston Red Sox] pitcher Franklin Morales and suffered a concussion. He was again out of action for another two months, only returning to the line-up on August 27th. He had more injury problems the following two years: in 2013, he was limited to 41 games with gastro-intestinal issues, then he told the Mariners just before the start of spring training in 2014 that he would need to miss the entire season because of the problem. He was placed on the restricted list to allow the Mariners to replace him on the major league roster.
