Update 3:07 p.m. PST: The Mariners scratched right field Michael Morse because of eye irritation. Here’s the revamped line-up.
Morse did not take batting practice. We aren’t sure how the irritation happened. There is some thought he might have scratched it while putting in his contacts.
Endy Chavez moves into right field and will bat eighth. It’s a tough break for the Mariners since Morse had been hitting so well in the last few games and seemed to have some things figured out.
