Mariners 3B Chone Figgins Placed On DL

The Seattle Mariners have placed third baseman Chone Figgins on the disabled list as day-to-day with a sore right hip flexor. Figgins will miss Tuesday night's game against the Oakland Athletics.

Figgins left Monday's game against the Athletics early on. There remains mystery as to how exactly Figgins got injured, as it could be attributed to either his diving stop in the top of the first or his sprint around the bases during the Mariners' batting period in the bottom of the second.

Figgins was 1 for 1 on the night and scored one run. He did not return to the game after being pulled out, but thankfully the Mariners didn't need his help as they posted 13 hits in the first five innings to cruise to an 8-4 victory.

Figgins has been batting .188 on the season with one home run and 15 RBIs. The Mariners have promoted third baseman Kyle Seager from Triple-A Tacoma.
