Mariners Place Outfielder on IL; Will Miss Wild Card Series

He won't play in the AL Wild Card Series against the Toronto Blue Jays. 

The Seattle Mariners have placed outfielder Jesse Winker on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to October 3, with a neck injury. 
Winker is now officially out for the best-of-three AL Wild Card Series after an MRI taken on Wednesday morning revealed a disc issue. 

The twenty-nine-year-old finishes his first regular season in Seattle slashing .219/.344/.688, with 14 home runs, 53 RBIs and 51 runs scored over 456 at-bats. It's a significant downgrade to his .305 batting average and .949 OPS last year with the Cincinnati Reds. 

Winker is in the middle of a two-year, $14,500,000 contract with the Mariners.
