Seager (illness) has been scratched from Thursday's lineup due to food poisoning, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Seager and Robinson Cano (back) are both late scratches heading into Thursday's season finale against the Giants. He likely won't miss much time due to the food poisoning, but Willie Bloomquist will fill in at third base on Thursday.

Seager homered, his 11th, as part of a 2-for-4 game in Monday's win over the Giants.

Seager is running a career high in slugging percentage at .475, and at 27-years-old, Seager is exactly at the point in his career where his power should be peaking. He ranks third in the AL in slugging by a third baseman, behind just Josh Donaldson and Manny Machado, and he'll be pushing for a second straight All-Star bid.

Sweager went 2-for-5 with a double, a grand slam, five RBI and two runs Wednesday in Cleveland.

He'd seen his power dry up recently, with a 13-game homerless stretch, but Seager tends to find ways to contribute even when he's not hitting balls out of the yard. He isn't the most exciting hitter in the league and playing half his games in Seattle depresses his numbers, but Seager's on pace to roughly replicate -- if not slightly improve upon -- last year's stats.

Seager went 3-for-5 with two home runs and six RBI in Tuesday's win over Tampa Bay.

Seager had a huge night to lead his team to a win in Tampa Bay as he hit home runs number eight and nine on the season to go along with 29 RBI. Seager is now batting .281 and continues to be a solid all around third baseman for the Mariners.

Seager went 1-for-4 Saturday with a solo home run, extending his hitting streak to nine games.

He's hitting .364 (12-for-33) over the course of the streak, and Seager's six home runs and 22 RBI on the year put him only a little off last season's power pace. He's also striking out less than ever, with just 18 K's in 151 at-bats, and if Seager's refined approach is starting to pay dividends his overall numbers could rise in a hurry.

Seager was ejected for the first time in his career following the fifth inning of Thursday's game against the Mariners.

Seager was replaced at third base by Willie Bloomquist, but it's unlikely a suspension will follow. If it were to occur, Bloomquist would be the likely substitute for the small amount of time he'd miss. However, Seager should continue in an everyday role as the Mariners' third baseman when available.

Seager went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored against the White Sox on Sunday.

The 27-year-old has underachieved during the season's early months, as he is hitting just .255 and the home run was only his fifth of the year. Seager will be hard-pressed to repeat last year's totals of 25 homers and 96 RBI, but he will get it together sooner or later and should still provide strong counting stats from the third base position.

Seager was 2-for-4 with a home run and a double Wednesday against the Angels, scoring two runs and driving in a pair.

Seager has now hit safely in four straight games and notched his first multi-hit game since Apr. 26, a span of nine games. His home run drought also finally came to an end Wednesday as he hadn't gone deep for nearly a month.

Seager (thumb) is back in the lineup Thursday against the Astros.

Seager was out of the lineup Wednesday due to a jammed thumb, but it looks to be nothing serious, as he's back at his usual third base spot and batting fifth in the order.
