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.
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, triple, home run and nine RBI through his first eight major-league games, as he seems to have taken over the starting role at third base.
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.
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.
Gutierrez will start at third base and bat seventh during his first major-league game Saturday.
On Friday, Gutierrez was called up from Triple-A Omaha following the injury to Lucas Duda (back). 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 in Triple-A, the 24-year-old hit .333 with two home runs and 10 RBI.
