Mariners’ Seager hopes to play Tuesday

Third baseman Kyle Seager hopes to return Tuesday to the Mariners’ lineup after missing four days because of a jammed right index finger. He suffered the injury in first inning of last Thursday’s spring opener on a slide at third base.

“I’m shooting for tomorrow,” Seager said. “Originally, it was a possibility for today. Then it was, `Well, you know, we might as well take it slow with it being so early.’ But as far as I know, I’m in there tomorrow.”

Seager planned to test his recovery Monday by going through a full workout.

“It’s nothing major,” he said. “It wouldn’t even be an issue during the season. It’s just because its early.”

Seager suffered the injury on a head-first slide while going from first to third on a single by Robinson Cano. The injury did not force Seager to depart the game.

“You see the slide?” he asked. “Oh, yeah…that’s what I get for sliding like that. It wasn’t exactly a textbook slide. But it’s fine. It’s nothing major…There wasn’t even a throw. That adds a little insult to injury.”

    The play in question is sound fundamental baseball. I hope to see more of it during the season.

    Hard up for news! The injury is nothing major because it’s early. Wouldn’t be out of the lineup in regular season.

    Heavens! The News Tribune news hound must have a VERY heavily stuffed nose.
