Per Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times, Mariners GM Jerry DiPoto said on Wednesday that shortstop J.P. Crawford is expected to miss at least two weeks due to a Grade 1 strained hamstring. It’s not clear exactly when Crawford suffered the injury but he hasn’t played since August 30.

Crawford, 24, has hit .241/.322/.397 with 30 extra-base hits, 40 RBI, and 38 runs scored in 338 plate appearances this season.

The Mariners have tagged Dylan Moore to handle shortstop while Crawford is on the mend. Moore, a utilityman who has played every position but catcher this season, has a comparable .217/.321/.399 batting line on the year across 235 plate appearances.
