Chone Figgins misses game for family

NEW YORK -- Chone Figgins is not in Seattle's lineup because of a family emergency and it is not known if he'll be available when the Mariners face the New York Yankees on Monday night and try to snap a 15-game losing streak.

Manager Eric Wedge said about 90 minutes before the game that the infielder is with his family, but would not reveal the problem.

Figgins is batting just .182 with 10 steals and 23 runs scored for Seattle this season.
