Seattle Mariners place veteran first baseman Ty France, 27, on 10-day injured list with left elbow injury
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Seattle Mariners placed veteran first baseman Ty France on the 10-day injured list with a left elbow injury, retroactive to Friday. The club made the announcement prior to the Mariners' game against the Los Angeles Angels. Seattle filled the roster spot by recalling third baseman Drew Ellis from Triple-A Tacoma.
France went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Sunday's 6-5 extra-inning win over the Rangers. France got the Mariners within two runs in the ninth inning, and Eugenio Suarez tied the game on a two-run double. The homer was France's first extra-base hit since May 27, and it snapped an 0-for-15 skid at the plate after he had only a hit-by-pitch in his first four plate appearances Sunday. The infielder's short skid took a small bite out of an otherwise impressive slash line that sits at .332/.405/.491 through 54 contests. He's added eight homers, 37 RBI, 25 runs scored and 10 doubles this year as a key part of the top half of the Mariners' lineup.

Taking a look at tonight’s slate of baseball games, we have a lot of different routes we can take in terms of MLB player props, plays, or daily fantasy baseball lineups.

However, Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Jeffrey Springs has MLB strikeout props to target against the Texas Rangers. At the other end of the spectrum, a few MLB top hitters in Ty France and José Abreu stand out like sore thumbs in their favorable matchups on Wednesday, June 1st. Both players might also be popular daily fantasy baseball plays as well.

Last month, Mariners first baseman Ty France was named American League Co-Player of the Week alongside Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera. Cabrera had reached 3,000 career hits that week and deserved to be recognized. But France’s monstrous week — 14 hits (including his first career five-hit game), three home runs and 10 RBIs in six games — was more than enough to earn him a spot alongside the future Hall of Famer for the award.
