Chone Figgins: Takes a Seat

Update: Figgins, who is hitting .189 with a .250 OBP, has been demoted to a utility role, the Seattle Times reports.

Recommendation: As Figgins continued to struggle, it became only a matter of time before he was benched. Dustin Ackley will fill Figgins' leadoff spot in the lineup. Mike Carp figures to get most of the at-bats in left field with Kyle Seager at third base. The next question for the Mariners is deciding whether to even keep Figgins on the roster.
