Toro is not starting Tuesday against the Athletics. Toro is hitless in his last 23 at-bats dating back to Sept. 14 and he's hitting just .172/.250/.234 altogether in September. He'll look to reset Tuesday as Dylan Moore takes over at second base.
Toro, who went 2-for-5 with a two-run double and a run in a win over the Astros on Wednesday, has a five-game hitting streak during which he's hit .429 (9-for-21) with four two-baggers, six RBI, two walks, a stolen base and four runs. The 24-year-old has actually been thriving at the plate since arriving from the Astros just before the trade deadline, and he clearly enjoyed playing against his old squad in the just-concluded three-game set. Toro went 5-for-13 over that span, and his current surge has his season slash line up to an impressive .271/.347/.430 across 74 games.
Toro went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and two RBI in Monday's 11-2 loss to the Astros. Toro doubled home the only two runs of the game for the Mariners after sending a ball to deep left field off Lance McCullers in the third inning. The 24-year-old has four multi-hit efforts over his last six games and has nine RBI over that span. Since coming over from Houston, Toro is slashing .314/.394/.457 with four homers, 21 RBI, 17 runs scored, two steals and 15:18 BB:K over 37 games.
Toro went 2-for-5 with a double, two runs, two RBI, a strikeout, a stolen base and a caught stealing in a 10-4 extra-innings triumph over the Diamondbacks on Sunday. Toro recorded an RBI fielder's choice and was caught stealing second in the fourth inning, doubled and scored in the seventh, stole second after hitting into another fielder's choice in the ninth, and knocked an RBI single before scoring in the 11th. The infielder has now posted consecutive multi-hit games while the theft was his first since July 28. He appears to have entrenched himself as Seattle's regular second baseman, at least for the remainder of the season.
Toro went 2-for-3 with a grand slam and a walk in a 4-0 shutout of the Astros on Tuesday. Toro reached base three times Tuesday, walking in the first inning, singling in the fourth and smashing a tie-breaking grand slam to right center in the eighth. Interestingly enough, the long ball came against Houston reliever Kendall Graveman, the player Seattle traded to Houston for Toro back in July. It was the infielder's first home run since Aug. 3, after he hit three in his first seven games with the Mariners.
