This is not what the Seattle Mariners want to see right now. Having lost five of their last six contests entering Thursday's game, the Mariners are on a bit of a cold streak. So, that's why Julio Rodriguez leaving the game vs. Oakland is so concerning.

Rodriguez is dealing with lower back tightness, which we don't want to see leading up to the playoffs. M's fans are hoping this isn't something that's going to impact him moving forward.

Rodriguez is in the middle of a brilliant campaign and Seattle supporters are hopeful he can be a stud in the postseason - that is if the Mariners can lock in a spot.
