Franklin Gutierrez still having headache issues, this time unrelated to concussion

Mariners centerfielder Franklin Gutierrez continues to work out with the team, as you see from the photo above. But Gutierrez is also still not feeling 100 percent and does have the occasional headaches.
Mariners manager Eric Wedge said the headaches are “less consistent than before” and are not concussion-based, something Gutierrez has already been cleared of.
Now, they are looking into whether the matter is related to some type of inner-ear issue. Anyhow, Gutierrez will remain back in Seattle while the team goes on its road trip.
“If everything goes well today we’ll leave him back, let him continue to work in Tacoma and then eventually get him on a rehabilitation assignment,” Wedge said.
Charlie Furbush threw a bullpen session today as he looks to get by the triceps soreness that landed him on the DL two weeks ago in Kansas City. The Mariners will see whether he’s OK tomorrow, then map out a game plan to get him to AAA to pitch.
Meanwhile, the Mariners today will get their first look at outfielder Eric Thames, who is starting in left field and batting eighth.
