Mariners recall OF Franklin Gutierrez, option OF James Jones
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/24/15) The Mariners have recalled outfielder Franklin Gutierrez from Triple-A. Gutierrez hasn't appeared in a big-league game since September of 2013, but he's in the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Royals. He'll bat second and be in left field.
The veteran outfielder has played in 48 games this year with Tacoma. He's batting .317/.402/.500 with seven home runs and 31 RBI.
He is taking the roster spot of James Jones, who was sent to Triple-A on Wednesday.
Mariners recall OF James Jones from Triple-A

|(6/15/15) As expected, the Mariners recalled outfielder James Jones from Triple-A on Monday, reports The News Tribune.

Mariners option down Danny Farquhar
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(6/14/15) The Mariners optioned Danny Farquhar to Triple-A Tacoma after Sunday's game.
Farquhar gave up two runs in 2/3 of an inning of relief on Sunday. He's 0-3 with a 6.49 ERA for the Mariners this year.
Manager Lloyd McClendon said that Farquhar would likely be replaced by a position-player call-up, per Seattle's 710 AM. No announcement was made, but James Jones was scratched from Tacoma's Sunday lineup.
|2014 summary: An unknown coming into the season, James Jones made a quick impression when he arrived early on, capturing a starting role with a .294 batting average and 12 stolen bases (in 13 attempts) over his first 46 games. But his slap-hitting ways ultimately exposed him as a spare-outfielder type. He hit only .201 the rest of the way (though he did go 15 for 15 on stolen bases) and spent much of August back at Triple-A.|
Playing time status: The Mariners are said to really like Jones, whose most notable quality other than his speed is that he wears No. 99. (seriously, he's not even a good defender), but even they seem to realize he's not fit to start for a team with playoff aspirations, having acquired Seth Smith for their one outfield opening this offseason.
2015 outlook: It's possible that slumps or injuries could earn Jones another shot in the Mariners lineup, especially if they're looking to add an element of speed to it, but chances are he won't hit enough to stay there. As a cheap steals specialist, he's a worthy pick in AL-only Rotisserie leagues, but that's about it.
