Gutierrez arrived at SKC in February as a Designated Player and signalled his intent with 5 goals in his first 5 games.

The Chilean's absence is likely to deal a blow to Sporting KC's impressive start to the season which see's them top of the Western Conference with 17 points from their first 9 games.
