Lineups: Kyle Seager, Dae-Ho Lee return for Mariners vs White Sox

Aug 27, 2016, 1:20 PM | Updated: 2:25 pm

With tough White Sox lefty Jose Quintana on the mound Saturday, the Mariners have two of the best power-hitting options against southpaws back in the lineup.

Kyle Seager will play for the first time since bruising his foot with a foul ball on Tuesday, and Dae-Ho Lee is at first base after being recalled from Triple-A earlier in the day. Seager has nine home runs vs. lefties this season in 165 at-bats (compared to 15 homers in 303 ABs against right-handers), and his two career hits in 17 plate appearances against Quintana have both left the yard. Lee, meanwhile, has hit seven of his 13 home runs this season against lefties.

The Mariners have stacked their batting order with right-handed hitters as much as they can, with Guillermo Heredia, Franklin Gutierrez and Chris Iannetta all getting starts for the 4:10 game on 710 ESPN Seattle. The pregame show begins at 3.
