The Seattle Mariners were dealt another tough blow for their Thursday night game against the Toronto Blue Jays. Second baseman Robinson Cano was a late scratch from the lineup, due to a sore quad muscle.

With the Houston Astros holding the best record in baseball, coming into play on Thursday, the Mariners find themselves six games back in the AL West despite sitting in second place in the division. At 17-17 on the season, Seattle is holding its own in the chase for a playoff spot despite being hit hard with injuries.
