    SEATTLE -- Oft-injured Mariners centre fielder Franklin Gutierrez was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring Tuesday, two days after coming off the 60-day DL for the same thing. Dustin Ackley was called up from Triple-A Tacoma as Gutierrezs replacement. The 30-year-old Gutierrez has played in just 18 games this season, hitting .267 with four doubles, five home runs and 11 RBIs. He had been on the disabled list from April 23-June 21. He came off Saturday and hit a home run in his first at-bat. Gutierrez played in only 40 games last year and 92 in 2011 because of various injuries. "Im disappointed, like we all are," manager Eric Wedge said of Gutierrez. "No one is more disappointed than he is. Im sure the frustration is just off the charts for him. "When he does play for us, were a better ballclub." Ackley, the second pick in the 2009 draft who was sent down to Tacoma on May 26, hit .365 with eight doubles, two home runs and 14 RBIs in 25 games. Hes been a second baseman most of his major league career, but also played the outfield at Tacoma. "He has earned it," Wedge said. "You look at his at-bats, his consistency. He has taken care of some things mentally and put them behind him." Ackley hit just .205 with four doubles, one home run and eight RBI in his previous 45 games this season with the big club.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indiana Pacers will welcome a familiar face to Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Monday night, as former head coach Frank Vogel and the Orlando Magic will be in town. Vogel coached the Pacers for the previous six seasons. He holds the most wins in franchise history and compiled the second-best winning percentage for any Pacers head coach (.580).Larry Bird made a somewhat surprising move in the offseason, replacing Vogel with Nate McMillan. Both teams are off to slow starts this season, as they each enter Monday night with a 4-6 record. But Vogels Magic just took down the Thunder on Sunday and are hoping to build off that victory.For the most part, Vogel was well-liked in Indianapolis, and the fans should respond accordingly.I think Frank will get a great reaction, said McMillan. The fans will be able to show their appreciation for all that he contributed here.Itll be great, Paul George told the Indianapolis Star. Im sure itll be an emotional moment for himself and for our crowd.Vogel agrees. I have a lot of strong ties still there, he told the Orlando Sentinel. Some of my best basketball moments of my life were coaching the Pacers.The Pacers had aspirations of being a top team in the Eastern Conference this season, but have struggled to find their identity in the early going. Theyre coming off an uninspiring week in which they played two overtime games with Philadelphia, including one loss, and their first home loss of the season on Saturday night against Boston.dddddddddddd.Indiana is hoping to have George back in action. He missed Saturdays game with a sprained ankle.Scoring has not been the issue for the Pacers, as theyve averaged 108.4 points per game so far, good enough for fifth in the NBA.The opposite has been true for Orlando. Coming into Sunday night, the Magic were last in the NBA at 92.3 points per game. They exploded for 119 points in the win over Oklahoma City. They were led by Serge Ibaka, who scored 31 points and hit the game-winning shot against his former team.Im not going to lie to you, it felt good, Ibaka said after the game.The Magic were able to withstand Russell Westbrooks monster night (41 points, 16 assists, 12 rebounds) in the win.Both of these teams are among the NBAs worst in team defensive rating. They both are giving up over 108 points per 100 possessions, which is rare for one of Vogels teams. It will be an intriguing matchup for two teams that are both searching for their own identity.The Magic will be without Jodie Meeks (fractured fifth metatarsal) and the Pacers will be without Rodney Stuckey (right hamstring strain.)Indiana went 2-1 against the Magic last season and have won 11 of the last 13 meetings overall. Monday will be the first of four matchups between these teams this season. ' ' '
