SEATTLE – Kyle Seager knew he had to look for something more on a day his Mariners had managed just three hits by the eighth inning. So, when Seager lined what looked like a single to right-center field with one out in the eighth, he took off out of the batter’s box thinking two bases. A headfirst slide just beat the tag to begin the decisive rally of a 3-1 win over the Cleveland Indians.
SEATTLE – On an empty field Saturday afternoon, Kyle Seager was at shortstop fielding balls and getting pointers from Mariners bench coach Robby Thompson. Saturday night, Seager was back at third base making his 20th start at that position. Seager has played only 25 games in his first major league season, but he already has become a master of versatility on the infield. Besides third, he also has started once at second base and, last week after Luis Rodriguez was hit by a pitch and injured, twice at shortstop.
SEATTLE – Kyle Seager didn’t plan on opening up to a complete stranger about a part of his life he’d kept largely to himself. The Mariners’ third baseman once wore T-shirts to the beach to hide the scar from the open-heart surgery he’d had as a 5-month-old infant. He rarely volunteered information on it other than at checkups, or when undergoing medical tests.
