Mariner Thursday lineup: Seager at cleanup, Kawasaki at shortstop

Here is the Mariner lineup for Thursday’s day game vs. the Rays at Tropicana Field:
Mariners (11-15)
———————————
9 Chone Figgins (S) LF
13 Dustin Ackley (L) 2B
51 Ichiro Suzuki (L) RF
15 Kyle Seager (L) 3B
27 John Jaso (L) C
20 Mike Carp (L) DH
17 Justin Smoak (S) 1B
55 Michael Saunders (L) CF
61 Munenori Kawasaki (L) SS
———————————
25 Kevin Millwood RHP
It’s not a surprise that slumping Chone Figgins is back in left, because Eric Wedge said as much last night, citing Figgins’ career 7-for-14 average against Tampa Bay starter Jeff Niemann. It’s also not a surprise that Brendan Ryan is sitting. Going 0-for-26 with nine strikeouts in your last 11 at-bats tends to get you a seat on the bench. Munenori Kawasaki gets the start at shortstop.
Kyle Seager, after his two-homer game last night, moves to cleanup for the first time in his brief career. Jesus Montero, who took over for Justin Smoak at cleanup last night, is getting a rest today, and Mike Carp is at DH. And today will be the long-awaited debut of John Jaso behind the plate.
