Seattle Mariners outfielder Franklin Gutierrez is day to day with a left groin muscle and will not play against the Los Angeles Angels on Monday.

Seattle Mariners center fielder Franklin Gutierrez will miss Tuesday night's game against the Los Angeles Angels with a sore left groin, according to the team's website. The seven-year veteran was pulled from Sunday's game against the Oakland A's because of the injury, and he's listed as day-to-day.

Manager Eric Wedge hasn't ruled Gutierrez out of returning even though the regular season lasts just two more days.

"I'm a big believer you have to fight to stay on the field," Wedge said, according to the Mariners website. "If he has a chance to play another game, we're going to get him in there. If it doesn't make any sense, then we won't."

Gutierrez doubled in two at-bats on Sunday, but felt a tightness in his leg while running the bases. On Monday he said the leg was sore.

The outfielder missed much of the year thanks to a torn oblique muscle and a concussion. The 29-year-old has played in 40 games this season, and batted .260 with four home runs and 17 RBI.
