Seattle 3B Chone Figgins to sit for few days

Mariners third baseman Chone Figgins will sit for the next few

days as he continues to struggle at the plate.

Seattle manager Eric Wedge said Figgins would get the time off

Tuesday before the second game of a three-game series against

Baltimore. Figgins is in an 0-for-22 slump and was dropped from

second to eighth in the batting order Monday.

Figgins also committed sixth error of the season in Seattle’s

4-3 win over the Orioles on Monday. He is hitting just .190

overall. Luis Rodriguez started at third and hit eighth.

Figgins is in the second year of a $36 million, four-year deal

he signed in December 2009.
