Mariners right fielder Mitch Haniger is out for the fourth straight game in Seattle’s series finale in Houston on 710 ESPN Seattle at 11:10.

Haniger hasn’t played since taking a pitch off his right index finger on a bunt attempt last Saturday, though manager Scott Servais said before Tuesday’s 6-2 loss to the Astros that he was available to come off the bench.

With Haniger still out, the Mariners will again have Ben Gamel in right field, Guillermo Heredia in left and Jarrod Dyson in center.

James Paxton gets the start as the M’s try to get back to .500 for the sixth time this season, taking on Houston right-hander Charlie Morton.

Here are the full lineups.

Mariners (47-48)

Jean Segura, SS
Ben Gamel, RF
Robinson Cano, 2B
Nelson Cruz, DH
Kyle Seager, 3B
