    • Gutierrez (back) will likely begin a minor-league rehab assignment in the near future, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Gutierrez has been on the disabled list since June 25 with ankylosis spondylitis, but is now feeling well enough to return to live action in the coming days. An official announcement containing the logistics of his rehab assignment should become available in the coming week or so.

    • Gutierrez (back) was moved to the 60-day DL on Friday, JP Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group reports. Gutierrez will need more time while recovering from ankylosis spondylitis, and is not available to return until late August following his transfer to the 60-day disabled list. This move was likely made in order to add the newly-acquired Dylan Floro to the 40-man roster, as there has been no recent news regarding Gutierrez's condition.

    • Gutierrez was placed on the 10-day disabled list with ankylosis spondylitis Sunday. Gutierrez is apparently dealing with a bout of arthritis in his spinal region and will take some time off to allow his body to heal. Mike Freeman was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City in a corresponding move.

    • Gutierrez is batting .236 this season with a disappointing .200 batting average against southpaws. The 34-year-old was brought to Los Angeles to serve as a dangerous platoon bat after batting .280 with 12 home runs against lefties last season, but he has not been delivering in a limited role with his new club. Gutierrez experienced symptoms of an illness that cost him the 2014 season, so that could be playing a role in his decline. Whatever the case, the slugger shouldn't be considered the daily fantasy value play in games against left-handed pitchers that he was last year.

    • Gutierrez's recent use as a pinch hitter Tuesday signals that he is over the illness that caused him to leave Sunday's game against the Cubs. There were concerns regarding the veteran's health when it was reported that his departure from Sunday's contest was the result of the same gastrointestinal/autoimmune issue that cost him the entire 2014 season. While no official update was provided by the team or the reporter who made the claim, Gutierrez appears to be in good health for the time being. The 34-year-old will resume his role as a bench bat who earns starts against southpaws.
