Franklin Gutierrez, originally on the 15-day disabled list for a partially torn pectoral muscle, was in Seattle on Wednesday to get his heel looked at. Wedge said there is no new problem, but the plantar fasciitis is not going to go away soon and Gutierrez will be off his feet for three to four days. Wedge did say everything is OK with Gutierrez's original pectoral injury.
Wedge is optimistic right-hander Blake Beavan will be able to make his next start. It is currently undecided, though, if Beavan -- who took a line drive off his elbow on Monday -- will make that start on his scheduled day of Sunday. If he can't go that soon, Wedge said it is a realistic option -- because of Thursday's off-day -- to push back the rotation and start either Kevin Millwood or Jason Vargas on regular rest.
