Jarrod Dyson isn’t in the lineup for the Mariners’ series opener at Texas on Monday, and that will be the case for the rest of the season.

Dyson, who has been hindered by a groin injury over the past month, has elected to undergo season-ending surgery. Guillermo Heredia, who has typically played center field against left-handed pitchers for Seattle this season while Dyson has been the usual center fielder against righties, will be in line for more playing time with Dyson out.

Felix, Paxton to return during Mariners’ trip in Texas

In his first year with the Mariners, the speedy Dyson has a .251 average with five home runs, 30 RBIs, 56 runs scored, a .324 on-base percentage and 28 stolen bases, which is currently tied for third in the American League. He is set to be a free agent after the season.

The Mariners will have Ariel Miranda on the mound in Monday’s 5:05 game on 710 ESPN Seattle against the Rangers, who will counter with Cole Hamels on the mound.

Seattle begins the day three games out of the American League’s second wild card spot at 71-72. The Twins currently hold the spot at 74-69. Texas (71-71) is one of four teams between the Mariners and Twins.
