Healy went 2-for-3 with a double and a run in a loss to the Angels on Sunday.
Healy's two-hit effort was his fourth of April, but the month has been a rough one at the plate overall. Healy is hitting just .185 across 75 plate appearances during that span, although he's encouragingly continued to put good wood on the ball (36.5 percent hard contact rate). However, the infielder has only gone deep twice over his last 65 plate appearances, with both homers coming last Thursday in the opening game of the series versus the Angels.
Healy had been slumping after a hot start, but he clubbed a pair of long balls in this slugfest against the Angels, going yard in the second and sixth inning. He's a good bet to slug 20-plus homers again after doing so the last two years, although his low-walk, high-strikeout ways mean he doesn't figure to provide much as far as batting average or on-base percentage.
Healy is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Astros, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Healy will head to the bench for the first time all season as manager Scott Servais rolls with Dylan Moore at third base. The day of rest could prove useful for Healy, who went hitless in seven at-bats during the first two games of the series to drop his average to .250 for the season.
Healy went 2-for-4 with a double, a sacrifice fly and a run in win over the Royals on Tuesday.
Fellow sluggers Edwin Encarnacion, Domingo Santana and Daniel Vogelbach have frequently stolen the spotlight during the Mariners' blistering start, but Healy has been making valuable contributions in his own right. The power-hitting infielder has hit safely in four of his last five games, and he now has back-to-back two-hit efforts. What's more, Healy has flashed a penchant for timely hitting thus far, as he's hitting .321 with runners on base (31 plate appearances) and .364 with runners in scoring position (13 plate appearances), leading to an impressive 12 RBI over his first 13 games.
Healy went 1-for-3 with a two-run double and two walks in a win over the White Sox on Saturday.
Healy has been a key part of the Mariners' surprising offensive machine in the early going, offering consistent production out of the latter portion of the order. The 27-year-old has hit safely in eight of the first 10 games and has already racked up 10 extra-base hits (seven doubles, three home runs) and 11 RBI over his first 43 plate appearances.
