Insight: Seager has been hitting the ball well lately, going 3-for-5 on Saturday and 3-for-4 last Wednesday. In the first week of September, Seager hit .385 with three home runs. With the recent hot streak and favorable matchup, he is a must-start on Monday.

Description: Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager went 3-for-5, hitting a two-run home run, as the Mariners beat the Rangers, 4-2, on Saturday.
Insight: The home run was Seager's 23rd of the season, which is a new career high. Seager's 88 RBI is also a career high. The first baseman did have a chance to put the game out of reach but grounded into a double play in the top of the ninth. In the eighth, Seager appeared to jam his ankle trying to round third base, but he finished the game. We will continue to monitor the situation.
