  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: On bench Sunday

    Winker is out of the lineup for Sunday's game at Texas.

    The 29-year-old was back in the lineup the past two games after a brief absence due to back spasms, and he'll return to the bench for Sunday's series finale. Sam Haggerty will take over in left field with Winker receiving a day off in the series finale.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Back in action Friday

    Winker (back) is starting in left field and batting cleanup Friday against the Rangers, Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM reports.

    The 28-year-old sat out the past two games after leaving Monday's contest with back spasms, but he'll rejoin the lineup for Friday's series opener after Seattle had a scheduled day off Thursday. Winker is 5-for-18 with two home runs, five RBI, five runs and a 9:5 BB:K through seven games in August.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Remains out of lineup

    Winker (back) isn't starting Wednesday against the Yankees.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Held out Tuesday

    Winker (back) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Yankees, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Winker was lifted from Monday's contest due to back spasms and will be out of the starting nine for at least one game. It's unclear if the 28-year-old will be available off the bench, and he should be considered day-to-day until the team updates his status. Jake Lamb will start in left field and bat cleanup.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Experiencing back spasms

    Winker left Monday's game against the Yankees due to back spasms, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. He struck out in both of his plate appearances before departing.

    Winker will likely be re-evaluated Tuesday to determine his availability moving forward. Jake Lamb and Kyle Lewis would be the primary candidates to pick up playing time in place of Winker in the short term, though Sam Haggerty would likely be the frontrunner to serve as Seattle's top left fielder if Winker requires a stint on the injured list and if Julio Rodriguez (wrist) is activated from the IL on Wednesday or Friday, as is anticipated.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Leaves game early

    Winker was removed from Monday's game against the Yankees with an apparent back injury, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.

    The television crew caught Winker exiting the field during pitching change and mouthing the words "my back," but the team has yet to confirm the location of the injury. He'll be considered day-to-day until more information comes to light.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Hits grand slam in win

    Winker went 1-for-3 with a grand slam and a walk in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Angels.

    Winker's third-inning blast off Angels starter Tucker Davidson gave the Mariners enough offense for the win. Across his last seven games, Winker has gone 6-for-20 (.300) with three homers, seven RBI and six runs scored. He should still see a majority of the playing time in left field, but the return of Mitch Haniger on Saturday and the expected activation of Julio Rodriguez (wrist) from the injured list this coming week could see Winker receive more days off. The 28-year-old outfielder has a .230/.349/.365 slash line with 11 homers, 41 RBI and 36 runs scored through 100 contests.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Out of Game 2 lineup

    Winker is not in the lineup for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Angels.

    Winker has handled lefties fairly well this season and was on base in all four plate appearances via a single and three walks during the first game of the twin bill, but he will get a breather with the Mariners loading up on right-handed hitters against Angels starter Reid Detmers. Kyle Lewis will get the nod in left field, which could become a more common occurrence with fellow outfielder Mitch Haniger back in action.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Ties game with homer

    Winker went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 3-2 extra-inning loss to the Astros.

    Winker took Astros reliever Ryne Stanek deep in the eighth inning to tie the game at 2-2. Over his last 11 games, Winker has found himself in a 6-for-35 (.171) funk, but injuries to Julio Rodriguez (wrist) and Dylan Moore (back) should secure the veteran's role in the everyday lineup. Winker is slashing .226/.336/.349 with nine homers, 37 RBI, 31 runs scored and 14 doubles through 93 contests.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Snaps slump with double

    Winker went 1-for-3 with a double and a run in a loss to the Astros on Friday.

    Winker laced an eighth-inning two-bagger off Justin Verlander and was subsequently brought home by a Julio Rodriguez double for the Mariners' only run of the night. Prior to the hit, the slumping outfielder had been mired in an 0-for-10 skid since returning from a one-game absence due to an ankle injury.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Will start Tuesday

    Winker (ankle) is in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rangers, according to Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Not in Monday's lineup

    Winker (ankle) isn't starting Monday against the Rangers.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Exits with apparent injury

    Winker was removed from Sunday's game against the Astros in the top of the fifth inning due to an apparent injury, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Winker collided with Jeremy Pena on a single in the bottom of the second inning but remained in the game for several innings prior to being replaced defensively ahead of the fifth inning. The 28-year-old went 1-for-2 prior to his removal. The nature and severity of the injury aren't yet clear, and it's unknown whether Winker will be forced to miss additional time.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Deemed day-to-day

    Winker (ankle) is considered day-to-day after leaving Sunday's loss to the Astros, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

    Winker sustained a sprained right ankle in the bottom of the second inning while colliding with Jeremy Pena on the basepaths, but manager Scott Servais is optimistic that the injury isn't significant. Winker will be monitored ahead of Monday's series opener against the Rangers, but Servais hopes that the outfielder will avoid a trip to the injured list.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Dealing with right ankle sprain

    Winker exited Sunday's game against the Astros due to a right ankle sprain, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Winker sustained his injury in the bottom of the second inning during a collision with Jeremy Pena, but it's somewhat encouraging that he remained in the game until the top of the fifth. It's not yet clear whether the ankle issue will force him to miss additional time.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Goes yard twice Wednesday

    Winker went 2-for-8 with two solo home runs across both ends of Wednesday's doubleheader sweep of the Nationals.

    Making his return to the lineup from a six-game suspension, Winker took Josiah Gray deep in the fourth inning of the matinee before repeating the feat in the sixth inning of the nightcap against Erick Fedde. The 28-year-old outfielder needed some time to adjust following an offseason trade from Cincinnati, but he appears to have found his groove in Seattle, slashing .288/.405/.530 in 21 games over the last month with four of his eight homers on the season.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Suspension ends

    The Mariners reinstated Winker on Monday after he completed his six-game suspension.

    One of three Mariners players handed a suspension for his role in a June 26 benches-clearing brawl with the Angels, Winker was initially handed a seven-game ban before it was reduced to six following an appeal. He ended up missing the entirety of the Mariners' six-game slate last week, but he should be ready to reclaim an everyday role in left field or at designated hitter in the final week before the All-Star break.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Begins six-game suspension

    Winker is out of the lineup for Monday's game in San Diego and will begin serving his six-game suspension Monday, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.

    Since Winker was one of three Seattle players that received suspensions for their roles in the benches-clearing melee that occurred June 26 against the Angels, MLB allowed the Mariners to stagger the suspensions for the players in question. With J.P. Crawford having completed his four-game suspension Sunday and drawing back into the lineup Monday, Winker will now begin his suspension, which was reduced from seven games following an appeal. Dylan Moore is starting in left field Monday, while Justin Upton and Sam Haggerty could also see more work in the outfield while Winker is unavailable. Winker is eligible to return July 12 against the Nationals, at which point Julio Rodriguez -- who is appealing a two-game suspension -- may begin serving his ban, if it's not dismissed entirely.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Ban reduced, starting Saturday

    Winker, who is in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Athletics, has had his suspension reduced to six games, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Winker was initially issued a seven-game suspension for his role in a brawl during last Sunday's game against the Angels, but he had his punishment reduced by one matchup following his appeal. Since he's starting in left field and batting second Saturday, he presumably won't begin to serve his suspension until at least Sunday.
