With Andruw Jones and Torii Hunter starting to fall from the defensive spotlight a new name emerges.
He was third among centerfielders last season in Range Factor. He finished below just Carlos Gomez and Adam Jones.
So now you're probably asking, why Gutierrez and not Jones or Gomez?
The answer is simple: Innings played are a huge factor in determining Range Factor.
Last season, Carlos Gomez played 849 Innings, Adam Jones played 1,005 innings, and Gutierrez played 1,353 innings.
It's safe to say that had Gomez and Jones played more innings than Gutierrez, they would have led the league in Range Factor.
Either way, get ready to watch an exciting career out of Franklin Gutierrez.
