GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager sat out Sunday's action against the Indians due to a jammed index finger as Seattle dropped a 6-3 decision.

Seager hasn't played since the Mariners' initial Cactus League game Thursday after injuring his right hand while sliding into third base. The injury isn't believed to be serious, but Seager has been given the ensuing three games off to recover.

Seager, 26, has been one of the Mariners' top players the past two years. He hit .260 with 22 home runs and 69 RBIs in 2013 after batting .259 with 20 home runs and 86 RBIs in 2012.

With Seager out, the Mariners have primarily used Willie Bloomquist, Carlos Triunfel and Nate Tenbrink at third base.
