Description: Seattle shortstop Chris Taylor injured his right wrist Friday and is not in the Mariners lineup on Saturday.
Insight: It doesn't appear to be too serious. Taylor is battling Brad Miller for the starting job and his spring training batting average of .421 to date is certainly giving him the upper hand.
