News: Seager, who was scratched Saturday with oblique tightness, hit a three-run homer to deep left-center off Texas' Yovani Gallardo on Sunday.
Impact: The injury is no longer an issue. Seager is having a good spring, hitting .367 (11 for 30) with two homers, two doubles, five walks and three strikeouts. Last year he struggled in spring (.191) and it carried into the regular season as by late April he was hitting .156 with no homers and no RBI. He picked up the pace thereafter, of course, but getting off to a better start this year is important.

News: Seager was scratched from Saturday's Cactus League lineup with minor tightness in his oblique area, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.
Impact: Manager Lloyd McClendon stressed that Seager's scratch was precautionary, saying the 27-year-old passed all his physical tests afterward and that it's not a serious issue. Consider Seager day-to-day for now, but the Mariners seem confident this isn't anything that could keep him off the field for long.

News: Seager spent the offseason working on hitting to all fields in hopes of beating the shift more often this season, the Seattle Times reports.
Impact: Teams routinely used the shift last year against Seager, who hit 50 percent of his batted balls to the right side, only 21 percent to the left side. If he can go the other way more consistently, his average could get a boost.
