Fontana went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 8-6 loss to the Mariners.

He entered the game for Zack Cozart (shoulder) in the fourth inning and stroked his first homer of the season. Fontana only has two big-league hits in 31 career plate appearances, but both of them have left the yard. If Cozart's injury proves to be serious, Fontana could find himself in a platoon with David Fletcher at shortstop until Andrelton Simmons (ankle) is healthy.
