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.
