The Seattle Mariners held outfielder Mike Morse out of the lineup for the second consecutive game as the slugger continues to be hampered by a left wrist injury. Acting manager Robby Thompson told reporters -- including Greg Johns of MLB.com -- that Morse is dealing with lingering discomfort, and it's not clear when he'll be returning to Seattle's lineup.
"Nothing severe," acting manager Robby Thompson
said. "A couple swings, though, he's kind of grimaced and held his wrist
here as of late. We'll give him another day and see where he's at
While Morse could miss another game or two as a result of the injury, it doesn't seem to be something that will send him to the disabled list. Of course, the same was said regarding his hamstring injury which ended up costing him a month on the shelf.
Since being acquired this offseason from the Washington Nationals, Morse hasn't been the power bat Seattle was hoping for. Over 286 plate appearances, the 31-year-old has struggled to the tune of .232/.290/.418. The Mariners replaced Morse in the outfield with Michael Saunders.
