Jack Wilson Injury, Or Fielding Futility, Brings Luis Rodriguez Into Action For Seattle Mariners

The Seattle Mariners currently trail the Texas Rangers in the finale of a three-game series in Arlington after Felix Hernandez gave up three runs in the second. Unfortunately for the Mariners, Jack Wilson was forced to leave the game ahead of the third inning with the Rangers leading the Mariners, 3-1. Wilson has been known to be injury-prone throughout his career, but there's conflicting reports on whether he's injured or not.

Wilson has been playing with fire at second base thus far, staying in for as long as possible while turning double plays and feeling the effects of hard takeout slides. Wilson was forced to leave the game after his consecutive throwing errors yielded three Texas runs in the bottom of the second, but may have been injured after a hard slide found the mark, leaving Wilson on the ground after a nasty fall.

With Wilson out, Luis Rodriguez is at second for the Mariners for the rest of the game. It’s unknown what the extent of Wilson’s injury is, but we'll keep an eye on the situation.
