Gutierrez went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a double in Saturday's loss against Oakland.
Gutierrez launched his two-run shot in the eighth inning off Jesus Luzardo, and that was all the offense the Royals would muster in the entire game after they went 5-for-32 as a team. He's been seeing the ball well of late and is now riding a four-game hitting streak, going 6-for-16 with one homer and five RBI during that stretch.
Gutierrez went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Thursday's win over the Athletics.
Gutierrez made his presence felt in the bottom of the seventh inning, as he plated the go-ahead runs with a two-run single that knocked home both Jorge Soler and Hunter Dozier. The third baseman has been seeing the ball well of late and has hit safely in nine of the Royals' last 11 games, though he only has a .250 average with a .591 OPS in that span.
Gutierrez is not in the lineup Thursday against the Twins, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.
The 26-year-old started the past three games and will take a seat for Thursday's contest. Gutierrez has a .250/.263/.321 slash line in 16 games since making his season debut May 14, which may not be enough to maintain a starting role for long with Hunter Dozier (concussion) back from the injured list.
Gutierrez is starting at third base and batting seventh Friday against the Tigers.
The 26-year-old was promoted between games of last Friday's doubleheader and was on the bench for the nightcap, but he's now starting at third base for the fifth straight contest. Gutierrez is 6-for-15 with a run scored to open the season and has overtaken Hanser Alberto for playing time at the hot corner with Hunter Dozier (concussion) sidelined.
Gutierrez was recalled by the Royals in between games of Friday's doubleheader against the White Sox, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
Hunter Dozier was placed on the 7-day concussion injured list, creating an opening for Gutierrez to join the major-league roster for the first time in 2021. Gutierrez had a .660 OPS in his first 20 MLB games in 2019 and only appeared in four games with the Royals during the shortened 2020 season. He's off to a respectable start with Triple-A Omaha this year (.306/.342/.444).
The Royals optioned Gutierrez to Triple-A Omaha on Monday.
With Kansas City including both Gutierrez and shortstop Lucius Fox among Monday's cuts, non-roster invitee Hanser Alberto looks to be in good position to break camp as the Royals' top utility infielder. Gutierrez had minimal success over a limited sample at the big-league level between the past two seasons, slashing .244/.308/.329 over 91 career plate appearances.
Gutierrez was optioned by the Royals on Monday.
Gutierrez has appeared in just four games for the Royals this season, going 1-for-9 with six walks. Jorge Soler returned from his oblique injury in a corresponding move.
Gutierrez is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers.
He'll take a seat after starting at third base in each of the Royals' last three games, during which he went 1-for-9 with three walks against six strikeouts. Maikel Franco will be the Royals' top third baseman when Kansas City is at full strength, but he'll be able to serve as the team's designated hitter so long as Jorge Soler (oblique) is sidelined. Until Soler gets reinstated from the 10-day injured list, look for Gutierrez and Erick Mejia -- who is starting Wednesday -- to split work at the hot corner.
Gutierrez (elbow) was activated from the 45-day injured list Saturday.
A Grade 2 UCL sprain in his right elbow had kept Gutierrez sidelined all year. He'll fill at least a bench role down the stretch, though he's unlikely to have broad fantasy appeal even if given unexpected playing time, as he hit just .260/.304/.356 in his 20-game debut last season.
Gutierrez (elbow) was moved to the 60-day IL on Thursday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.
Gutierrez was moved to the extended IL to make room for Franchy Cordero and Ronald Bolanos, who were sent from San Diego in a trade for Tim Hill. Kansas City still is planning on re-evaluating Gutierrez in two weeks. The 25-year-old has been hitting and throwing in Arizona as he recovers from his right UCL sprain.
Gutierrez has a Grade 2 UCL sprain in his right elbow 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.
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.
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.
Gutierrez was recalled from Triple-A Omaha and placed on the 60-day IL with a fractured right toe, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com 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.
Gutierrez is starting at third base and hitting fifth Thursday against the Tigers, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com 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.
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.
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.
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.
Gutierrez (hip) was activated from the minor-league injured list at Triple-A Omaha on Friday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com 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.
Gutierrez's recent placement on Triple-A Omaha's 7-day injured list was due to a hip flexor strain, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com 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.
