Update: Manager Eric Wedge said Sunday that Gutierrez (concussion) is close to rejoining the Mariners, the team's official site reports.

Recommendation: Gutierrez went 1-for-3 in his seventh rehab game with Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday. "I think he's close to heading our way," Wedge said. "He felt good again [Saturday]. We're going to talk further about it today, but I think he's getting close." The 29-year-old outfielder has been out since being hit in the head with a pickoff throw June 28, but he's hitting .333 with seven RBI at Tacoma and hasn't experienced any headaches or setbacks.
