2020 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Kelvin Gutierrez in 2020. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
Optioned to Triple-A
3BKansas City Royals  AAA
March 19, 2020
Gutierrez was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Gutierrez didn't make much of an impression in his 20-game debut last season, hitting a single home run while posting a .260/.304/.356 slash line. Even if injuries open up a larger role this season, he's unlikely to be a particularly appealing fantasy option.
