Royals' Kelvin Gutierrez: Suffers elbow injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gutierrez has a Grade 2 UCL sprain and is rehabbing in Arizona, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

It's unclear when Gutierrez suffered his UCL sprain, but he's now hitting and throwing in Arizona as he recovers. He's scheduled to be re-evaluated in two weeks, which means that he won't be available for the start of the regular season. The 25-year-old made his major-league debut last season, hitting .260/.304/.356 with one home run and 11 RBI over 20 games.

Royals' Kelvin Gutierrez: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gutierrez was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Thursday.

Gutierrez didn't make much of an impression in his 20-game debut last season, hitting a single home run while posting a .260/.304/.356 slash line. Even if injuries open up a larger role this season, he's unlikely to be a particularly appealing fantasy option.

Royals' Kelvin Gutierrez: Starting at third base Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gutierrez (toe) is in the lineup for Saturday's spring opener against the Angels.

Gutierrez's 2019 campaign was cut short by his toe injury, but that is no longer an issue. He will man third base and hit fifth in Saturday's batting order.

Royals' Kelvin Gutierrez: Summoned, sent to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gutierrez was recalled from Triple-A Omaha and placed on the 60-day IL with a fractured right toe, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

This move, which effectively ends Gutierrez's season, frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for Randy Rosario, who was claimed off waivers Thursday. Gutierrez appeared in 20 big-league games this season, posting a .260/.304/.356 slash line.

Royals' Kelvin Gutierrez: Starting at third base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gutierrez is starting at third base and hitting fifth Thursday against the Tigers, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

Gutierrez, who is serving as the 26th man for Thursday's game in Omaha, will get one last start before heading back to the minors. In 19 appearances for the Royals this season, the 24-year-old is slashing .275/.320/.377 with a home run, 11 RBI and a stolen base.

Royals' Kelvin Gutierrez: Heading to minors after game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gutierrez was optioned to Triple-A Omaha, though he'll serve as the 26th man for Thursday's game against the Tigers in Omaha before joining the Storm Chasers.

Gutierrez was sent back to Omaha to free up a roster spot for Lucas Duda (back), who was activated from the injured list Thursday. He appeared in four games during his most recent stint with the big club, going 3-for-12 with a double and a 3:5 BB:K in those contests. Gutierrez will likely be used as a bench bat for Thursday's game before reporting to Omaha on Friday.

Royals' Kelvin Gutierrez: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gutierrez is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Red Sox, Joel Goldberg of FOX Sports Kansas City reports.

Gutierrez drew starts at third base the last two days, but that may have only been the result of the Red Sox bringing a lefty to the hill for both contests. The hot-hitting Cheslor Cuthbert will get the nod at the hot corner Thursday and should start the majority of work in the time share while he continues to perform reasonably well at the plate.

Royals' Kelvin Gutierrez: Recalled by Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gutierrez was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday.

Gutierrez appeared in 15 games for the Royals in late April and early May, posting a .281/.300/.386 slash line. He'll fight with Cheslor Cuthbert for starts at third base while Hunter Dozier (side) remains on the injured list.

Royals' Kelvin Gutierrez: Returns from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gutierrez (hip) was activated from the minor-league injured list at Triple-A Omaha on Friday, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

Gutierrez missed slightly longer than the minimum seven days with a hip flexor strain. He'll look to keep up his strong .338/.444/.441 line through 19 games for Omaha in hopes of returning for a second crack at the big leagues.

Royals' Kelvin Gutierrez: Dealing with hip injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gutierrez's recent placement on Triple-A Omaha's 7-day injured list was due to a hip flexor strain, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

The injury doesn't appear to be an overly significant one, though it could sideline Gutierrez for more than the minimum amount of time. Gutierrez was optioned to the minors last week after he lost out on regular starts following the arrival of middle-infield prospect Nicky Lopez.

Royals' Kelvin Gutierrez: On minor-league IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gutierrez was placed on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Omaha with an undisclosed injury, Rustin Dodd of The Athletic reports.

The Royals have a doubleheader against the Cardinals on Wednesday, but Gutierrez won't be an option to come up as the 26th man now that he is on the shelf. As the nature of his injury is unclear, he should be considered out indefinitely.

Royals' Kelvin Gutierrez: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gutierrez was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Friday, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

Gutierrez was mediocre in his first taste of big-league action, hitting for average but doing little else as he recorded a .281/.300/.386 slash line in 15 games. His 30.0 percent strikeout rate and .385 BABIP suggested that his batting average was about to come down, leaving him with little positive effect on the lineup. There were suggestions earlier in the week that the 24-year-old was destined for a bench role, but he'll wind up playing regularly in the minor leagues for now. A corresponding move has not yet been announced.

Royals' Kelvin Gutierrez: Bench role likely looming
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gutierrez could see his starting opportunities take a hit with the Royals set to promote middle-infield prospect Nicky Lopez from Triple-A Omaha ahead of Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

Lopez won't serve as a direct replacement at third base for Gutierrez, but the latter instead appears in line for a role reduction as part of a domino effect. The Royals plan to install Lopez as their everyday second baseman in place of Whit Merrifield, who will see regular reps in the corner outfield. Meanwhile, Merrifield's move to the outfield should bump Jorge Soler to a full-time role at designated hitter, shifting Hunter Dozier back to third base in the process and bumping Gutierrez to the bench. Gutierrez began his stint with the Royals on a promising note with an .895 OPS through his first eight starts, but he's recorded just two hits in 17 at-bats over the last five contests while striking out 36.8 percent of the time.

Royals' Kelvin Gutierrez: Sits for second straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gutierrez remains on the bench Tuesday against Houston.

It's possible Gutierrez is battling an unreported injury, as it's odd to see him sit twice in a row following a stretch in which he started 10 straight games and hit .300. Hunter Dozier again moves out to third base, with Chris Owings in right field and Jorge Soler serving as the designated hitter.

May 7, 2019 03:44 PM
Royals' Kelvin Gutierrez: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gutierrez is not in the lineup Tuesday against Houston.

Gutierrez started 10 games in a row after making his big-league debut April 27. He's acquitted himself well, hitting .300/.317/.450, though his 29.3 percent strikeout rate and 2.4 percent walk rate caution against getting too excited. Hunter Dozier starts at third base Tuesday.

Royals' Kelvin Gutierrez: Pounds out four hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gutierrez went 4-for-6 with one RBI, one stolen base and two runs scored in Saturday's 15-2 win at Detroit.

Gutierrez has been in the majors for just over a week and already has three multi-hit games. The 24-year-old is 11-for-32 with a double, a triple, ahome run and nine RBI through his first eight major-league games, and he seems to have taken over the starting role at third base.

Royals' Kelvin Gutierrez: Drives in three runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gutierrez went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader versus the Rays.

Gutierrez joined Kansas City over the weekend and has started five straight games at third base -- including both games of Wednesday's twin bill -- going 6-for-18 with one home run and seven RBI. The 24-year-old seems likely to continue seeing opportunities as long as he keeps up a similar level of performance.

April 29, 2019 02:20 PM
Royals' Kelvin Gutierrez: Draws third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gutierrez will start at third base and bat seventh Monday against the Rays.

The rookie is picking up his third start in a row while manager Ned Yost deploys normal third baseman Hunter Dozier at designated hitter in place of the injured Lucas Duda (back). Gutierrez has reached base in four of his first eight plate appearances and should continue to see steady playing time if he can hold his own in his initial exposure to the majors.

Royals' Kelvin Gutierrez: Making MLB debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gutierrez will start at third base and bat seventh in his major-league debut Saturday.

Gutierrez was called up from Triple-A Omaha on Friday following a back injury suffered by Lucas Duda. Duda will be out until at least May 6, so Gutierrez will try to make the most of his time in the majors. Through 18 games with Omaha, the 24-year-old hit .333 with two home runs and 10 RBI.

April 27, 2019 01:24 PM
Royals' Kelvin Gutierrez: Brought up to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gutierrez was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Friday, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

He will have a shot to make his big-league debut after Lucas Duda (back) was placed on the 10-day injured list. Gutierrez has slashed .333/.443/.439 with two homers and 10 RBI over 18 games with Omaha in 2019.
