A day after taking a scary-looking collision at first base, Ty France is out of the Mariners’ lineup for the series opener in Anaheim against the Los Angeles Angels.

Mariners Takeaways: Ty France injury update, keys to sweep over A’s

France, who leads the Mariners in many offensive categories and is on track to be an All-Star for the first time, collided with Oakland A’s infielder Sheldon Neuse as Abraham Toro’s throw from third tailed back into the first base line. As France stretched for the ball, he and Neuse collided and France’s arm got stretched and he lost his glove. France left the game with a left elbow injury.

After Thursday’s game, manager Scott Servais told reporters that France’s X-ray came back negative and the team was planning to have France undergo an MRI on Friday. Servais said he was “cautiously optimistic” that France’s injury wasn’t too severe, and France himself told reporters Thursday he felt he could avoid an injured list stint.

During his pregame press conference, Servais told reporters that the team is still awaiting the results of France’s MRI, and that multiple doctors will be reviewing the pictures, per Seattle Sports’ Shannon Drayer.

Per MLB.com’s Daniel Kramer, France said Friday he was stiff and sore, but that he was feeling better.

With France out Friday, Dylan Moore gets the start at first base for Seattle.
