Let’s see if I can do this from memory. Franklin Gutierrez had the weird gastrointestinal problems that took forever to learn how to treat. Then he badly strained his oblique. Then he tore his pectoral muscle throwing. Then he developed plantar fasciitis. Then in his first game back, he got hit by the first pitch. Then he sustained a concussion getting hit in the head by an errant pick-off throw. Then in his first game back, he got hit in his second or third plate appearance. Then he badly strained his hamstring and had difficulty recovering. Then we learned about a genetic disorder named ankylosing spondylitis. Now, the latest:
ANAHEIM — A swarm of bees circling through Angel Stadium delayed the Mariners-Angels game for 23 minutes on Sunday as the contest was stopped midway through the bottom of the third inning.
But as the swarm moved into right field, Mariners defenders all moved away and were eventually pulled off the field.
Game is being stopped for a few minutes. There appears to be a swarm of bees on the field. They of course to Gutierrez in RF first.
