Santana is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Angels.

Lefty Jose Suarez is pitching Tuesday for the Halos, and Santana finds himself on the bench for the third time in the past four games. The switch-hitting first baseman has a .668 OPS through 12 games in August. The Mariners appear content to open up a full-time role for Sam Haggerty in the outfield while deploying Mitch Haniger as their primary designated hitter rather than the slumping Santana.
