LOS ANGELES —- Outfielder Franklin Gutierrez was taken out of today’s game with an illness. He was not feeling well.

Gutierrez had played the first inning and then Yasiel Puig pinch-hit for Gutierrez when he was due to bat. Puig would go on to play right field and Brett Eibner moved from right field to left field.

Gutierrez has been on the disabled list once this season. He was placed on the 10-day disabled list on April 12th for a left hamstring strain and was activated on May 2nd.

Thus far he has played in 19 games and is hitting .265/.342/.441 in 38 plate appearances. He has one home run and three doubles this season.
