Gutierrez, who has been on the disabled list since June 25 and with a strained right hamstring, is expected to start Monday's game against the Texas Rangers in right field. He was also on the disabled list from May 16 to June 2 with the same ailment, and he has had four rehab assignments with Tacoma this season. In 18 games for the Mariners, Gutierrez is .267 with five home runs and 11 RBI.
Seattle designated right-hander Aaron Harang for assignment. Harang (5-11, 5.76 ERA) started 22 games for the Mariners. He lost 7-1 to the Angels on Sunday, giving up all the runs. The Mariners have 10 days to trade, release or outright Harang's contract to the minors.
