France went 3-for-4 with a solo homer, a double, a hit-by-pitch and two RBI in Tuesday's 10-0 win over the Twins.
France was a triple short of hitting for the cycle. He doubled his first time up and later singled in a run before ending his night with a solo shot to left. The long ball was his first since April 18, snapping a 42-game homeless drought. France is now slashing .257/.352/.388 with four homers, 24 RBI and 28 runs scored across 247 plate appearances.
France went 1-for-3 with an RBI double, a walk and a run in a win over the Twins on Monday.
France's fifth-inning two-bagger plated Jake Fraley to close the Mariners' deficit to 3-2 at the time. France has now hit safely in three straight and five of his last six games overall, but he still has just a .240 average and .320 slugging percentage across 58 plate appearances thus far in June.
France went 3-for-5 with an RBI ground-rule double in a loss to the Athletics on Tuesday.
France's third-inning two-bagger plated Kyle Seager with the Mariners' third run of the game and gave him his fifth RBI in the last three games. The 26-year-old now has four multi-hit efforts in the last eight contests and has given his batting average a 31-point boost to .261 during that post-injured-list stretch.
France went 1-for-5 with a game-tying RBI single and subsequently scored the game-winning run in an extra-inning victory over the Athletics on Monday.
France came through with a clutch single in the home half of the 10th to plate inning-opening runner Jack Mayfield, and he subsequently came home himself on Tom Murphy's game-winning sacrifice fly. France has come back from a stint on the injured list with a vengeance, reaching safely in each of his first eight games since returning while producing a .345 average and .801 OPS during that sample of 31 plate appearances.
France went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI in Sunday's 4-2 win over Texas.
France doubled in a run in the first inning and then brought home a pair with a single in the third. It was his first multi-RBI game since April 22 and he picked up his second extra-base hit since returning from an IL stint May 24. He's slashing .252/.346/.381 with 19 RBI this season.
France (wrist) went 1-for-4 with a double in a win over the Athletics on Monday.
France was able to get on the board in his first game after spending the minimum amount of time on the injured list. France had been mired in an deep, extended slump prior to being sidelined -- he'd slashed .063/.196/.083 across the 56 plate appearances encompassing the 14 games leading into his sabbatical -- so perhaps he'll return to his early season level of production now that his wrist is presumably back to 100 percent.
France (wrist) has been activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Monday's game against the Athletics, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
France was moved to the injured list May 14 due to inflammation in his left wrist, but he's been cleared to return after the 10-day minimum. The 26-year-old will return to the starting nine for Monday's series opener, per Corey Brock of The Athletic.
Mariners manager Scott Servais said France (wrist) has a "good chance" to be activated from the 10-day injured list during the team's three-game series in Oakland that begins Monday, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
France was stuck in a prolonged slump at the plate prior to landing on the IL on May 14 with an inflamed left wrist, but his impending return should nonetheless provide a lift to a Seattle infield that has been hit hard by injuries of late. Once he's reinstated, France should step in as an everyday regular once again.
France (wrist) will wear a splint for up to five days and take anti-inflammatory drugs during his time on the 10-day injured list, the Associated Press reports.
France was hit by a pitch in the forearm back on April 28, and he slashed .067/.192/.089 over the 52 plate appearances covering his subsequent 13 games before hitting the injured list. There's very likely a connection to his struggles, and the hope is the combination of downtime and the anti-inflammatory medication will get him back to full health and the success at the plate he enjoyed early in the season.
France was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with left wrist inflammation.
Seattle swapped out Evan White (hip) for Donovan Walton and later made this roster move, replacing France with Jack Mayfield. While France is not currently believed to be dealing with more than inflammation, it's not clear whether or not a return after the 10-day minimum is realistic. France is batting .059/.179/.088 in May and .229/.333/.366 for the season.
France (wrist) will be placed on the 10-day injured list Friday, Dick Fain of Sportsradio 950 KJR reports.
Apparently the Mariners need to do some more roster shuffling. Evan White is on the IL as well with a hip flexor issue. It's not clear when France sustained his injury, but he hasn't seemed like himself for a while (3-for-his-last-48).
France is not in the lineup for Friday's game against Cleveland.
France has endured a very rough time at the plate lately, grabbing just two hits in his last 11 games. Mitch Haniger will rest his legs as the designated hitter Friday, with Sam Haggerty starting in right field.
France is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers.
Mitch Haniger will take over as Seattle's designated hitter in place of France, who is mired in his worst slump of the season. Over his last 11 games, France has gone 2-for-40, sinking his season average from .325 to .236 during that stretch.
France is hitting .032 (1-for-31) with five walks, one hit-by-pitch and two runs over his last nine games.
The abysmal stretch has lowered France's season average from .325 to .246, and although his on-base percentage still sits at an impressive .351 thanks in large part to the walks, his slugging percentage has also seen a 135-point drop to .395. France has struck out at a 24.1 percent clip during that span, but the instances in which he's actually made contact that have been just as much a culprit -- the 26-year-old sports just a 4.5 percent line-drive rate and 18.2 percent hard-contact rate in the sample.
France went 1-for-4 with a double, an RBI and two strikeouts Sunday against the Red Sox.
France now has eight doubles this season, and he has four of those over his last four contests. The second baseman extended his hitting streak to four games and has hit safely in nine of his last 10 appearances, hitting .382 in that span.
France went 3-for-4 with a walk and three runs scored in Saturday's win over the Red Sox.
France was trouble for the Red Sox's pitchers all game, reaching base four times and hitting a pair of doubles, giving him seven on the season. He's so far been able to back up his small-sample success from last season, hitting .320/.416/.533 through 21 games.
France went 1-for-4 with a double, a walk and two RBI on Thursday against the Red Sox.
After a one-game absence from the starting lineup due to a forearm injury, France showed no ill effects. He delivered a clutch two-out double in the sixth inning that drove in a pair and knotted the game at two. France has shown plenty of ability to hit for extra bases early on this season, having collected three home runs and five doubles across 79 plate appearances.
France (forearm) is starting Thursday's game against the Red Sox.
France was hit in the forearm Monday, but he made a pinch-hit appearance against the Dodgers on Tuesday. He'll return to the lineup as the designated hitter for Thursday's series opener, batting second.
France, who was able to make a pinch-hit appearance in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers after being hit in the forearm Monday, has a chance to return to the starting lineup Thursday against the Red Sox, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports. "Better than I thought he would be doing," manager Scott Servais said about France's condition Tuesday. "He was in here early, got a bunch of treatment. He actually popped his head in my office and says he can be good to go, but I think it's best to maybe give him a day."
The fact France was able to get into the batter's box Tuesday -- he struck out in his pinch-hit appearance -- is certainly an encouraging sign. Given the Mariners had a day off Wednesday and France was already feeling better Tuesday morning, there certainly appears to be a chance he can rejoin the starting nine for the start of a four-game set at Fenway Park on Thursday.
France (forearm) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Dodgers.
France exited Monday's game after getting hit in the right forearm by a pitch. He went through infield drills prior to the game, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports, so it's unlikely he's in line for a long absence, but he'll find himself on the bench for at least one game. The Mariners get an off day Wednesday, so he'll get to rest for at least two days before potentially returning to the lineup Thursday in Boston.
