The real question with someone like Gutierrez is - is there anything left in the tank to make him useful anywhere else?  His track record against LHP is somewhat moot if he never gets off the DL.  Ad really, his carer numbers are somewhat influenced by a past that is no longer relevant.  If anything, Gutierrez has shown to be all over the place against LHP recently.  His 1.160OPS vs. LHP in a small sample size last season is somewhat offset by his .561 OPS against LHP in the same sample size in 2011.  

 

If the Mariners can find anyone to take him at this point, they should probably bite.  And I doubt sny deal fills a need for them, or at least I doubt it fills one very well...



 

Andre Ethier has posted a career .238/.296/.352/.649 line against lefthanded pitching while Franklin Gutierrez has posted a career .293/.351/.479/.830 line against southpaws.

 



So you are saying that teams will want Franklin Gutierrez based on a career numbers but Andy Bailey is untradable based on last year.  Got it...

 




a good example of selective stats...
