Gutierrez left Sunday's game in the first inning with an illness, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports.

EDGE Analysis

The illness is being reported as the same gastrointestinal/autoimmune problems that caused the veteran slugger to miss the entire 2014 season. While an official timetable hasn't been released yet, it sounds like Gutierrez could be sidelined for a while.

Gutierrez (hip) is in Saturday's lineup against the Rockies, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gutierrez had been dealing with a tight hip and missed three games, but he's ready to return to the lineup. He'll start in left field and hit cleanup when the Dodgers take on the Rockies on Saturday night. Gutierrez missed time with a hamstring injury as well and has played in just 11 games this season. However, he's been effective in that limited time and owns a .300 batting average and .941 OPS.

Gutierrez was removed from Saturday's game due to a bout of hip tightness, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

There was some speculation that the hamstring that sent Gutierrez to the disabled list earlier this year was the culprit, but it turns out a new issue has cropped up. It's unclear how severe the injury is at this time, but more details should emerge in the coming days. Consider the veteran outfielder day-to-day for the time being.

Gutierrez was lifted from Saturday's game with the Padres in the fifth inning, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gutierrez didn't look great running the bases in the top half of the fifth, so it is a bit concerning given that he just came off of a disabled list stint to heal a hamstring ailment. It's unclear whether this is a new issue at hand or just an aggravation of the prior injury, but more details should be revealed once the training staff gets a chance to examine him.

Gutierrez went 1-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over San Francisco.

EDGE Analysis

Gutierrez has a reputation as a lefty masher and he lived up to that reputation in his first game back from a hamstring injury, taking Matt Moore out nearly 450 feet to center field. It was his first home run of the season. The Dodgers' outfield will be especially crowded once Joc Pederson (groin) returns from the DL, but Gutierrez's spot in the lineup against opposing lefty starters is secure.

Gutierrez (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Gutierrez has rejoined the Dodgers after missing the last three weeks with a hamstring injury. The 34-year-old should reclaim his role as a power platoon bat in left field with Andrew Toles, though it remains unclear if he'll get the nod against Giants' lefty-throwing Matt Moore in his first game back Tuesday night.

Gutierrez (hamstring) will be activated from the 10-day disabled list Tuesday, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gutierrez had his return slightly delayed by a hit-by-pitch during his rehab assignment, but he'll be ready to return to his role as a power platoon bat in the Dodgers' outfield. He was just 3-for-13 (.231) in his first six games of the season, but two of the three hits went for doubles. Gutierrez hit 29 home runs in just 419 at-bats over the past two seasons for Seattle, so there is some serious pop in that bat.

Gutierrez (hamstring) is starting a rehab assignment with High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Saturday, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gutierrez, out since April 10, was progressing well until he was struck by a pitch during his time at Camelback Ranch and forced to extend his recovery program. Regardless, it appears the 34-year-old is taking the necessary steps to get back to regular action, so he should be set to rejoin the Dodgers soon, barring any further setbacks.

Gutierrez (hamstring) won't return until after the weekend, Alanna Rizzo of SportsNet reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gutierrez was initially slated to return this week, but a hit-by-pitch during his rehab assignment slowed him down, and he is running at just 80 percent at this point. Philadelphia, the Dodgers' weekend opponents, don't have any left-handed starters slated to pitch, so he likely wouldn't have garnered much playing time before next week anyway.

EDGE Analysis
