Torrens is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros.
With Tom Murphy getting the nod behind the plate, Mitch Haniger serving as the Mariners' designated hitter and Ty France starting at first base, Torrens will take a seat for the first time since July 20 with all three of his avenues to playing time being blocked for the afternoon. During his streak of seven consecutive starts, Torrens went 5-for-25 with a pair of home runs and three RBI. He still looks to have a steady hold on a near-everyday role, though he could be at risk of losing out on some work with the recent addition of Abraham Toro.
Torrens went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 4-3 win over the Athletics.
Torrens went back-to-back with Cal Raleigh in the second inning to give the Mariners an early 2-0 lead. The 25-year-old has now hit three home runs over his last five games and has hit safely in 13 of his last 15 contests. His improvement at the plate is allowing him to become a regular fixture in the lineup after not being an everyday player earlier in the season. Torrens is slashing .225/.293/.480 with 12 homers, 24 RBI, 23 runs scored and 16:50 BB:K over 191 appearances.
Torrens went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Rockies.
The M's only managed five hits on the afternoon against Austin Gomber and the Colorado bullpen, but three of them were solo shots. Torrens' bat has kept him in the lineup even after the promotion of catching prospect Cal Raleigh -- he got the start at first base Wednesday, the first time Torrens has played the position in his big-league career, and through 13 games in July the 25-year-old is slashing .300/.429/.650 with four of his 11 homers on the year.
Torrens is not starting Tuesday's game against the Rockies.
Torrens has done well while serving as the Mariners' primary DH of late, going 7-for-24 with a triple, a homer and three RBI across his last seven games. He won't be able to start Tuesday with no DH slot, but Torrens figures to be a top option off the bench.
Torrens went 1-for-3 with his 10th home run of the season and a walk Sunday against the Angels.
Torrens got his fourth straight start as the designated hitter and took Patrick Sandoval deep to center field in the fourth inning, giving the Mariners a 3-0 cushion.

Torrens will serve as the Mariners' designated hitter and will bat fifth Sunday against the Angels.
Torrens has lost work behind the plate of late to rookie Cal Raleigh, but the former still appears to be locked into solid playing time as the Mariners' primary option at DH. He'll pick up a seventh straight start Sunday, with six of those assignments coming as a DH. With a .915 OPS through 10 games in July, Torrens should stick in the lineup until his bat cools down.
Torrens, who was out of the lineup Sunday against the Angels and went 2-for-3 with an RBI triple and a walk in Saturday's win, hit .350 (7-for-20) with the three-bagger, two home runs, five RBI, seven walks and four runs across the last seven games of the first half.
The hot-hitting backstop reached safely in all seven of those contests as well, and factoring in Saturday's three-bagger and the pair of round trippers he belted during that stretch, he's now laced exactly half of his 32 hits this season for extra bases. That's helped lead to a .462 slugging percentage, a particularly appealing figure for a part-time catcher.

Torrens has now rapped out two hits in each of his last three starts, slugging a pair of home runs during that stretch as well.
