Gutierrez, 29, was diagnosed with a partial tear of his right pectoral muscle by Mariners Medical Director Dr. Edward Khalfayan. Gutierrez suffered the injury on Tuesday, February 28, making a throw from the outfield during a fielding drill. Gutierrez is being treated non-surgically.
Moore, 27, blocked a ball in the game March 6 vs. the Cincinnati Reds. The ball struck Moore on the right wrist. Moore finished the game (and was 2-for-2 with a double and 2 RBI) and iced the wrist after the game. He arrived at the ballpark March 7 and determined pain remained in the wrist, and it inhibited his ability to swing. An x-ray exam that day revealed a fracture in the third metacarpal in his right wrist.
