SEATTLE (AP) - New Seattle Mariners shortstop Jack Wilson has left a game against the Chicago White Sox with a leg injury.

The team said Wilson injured his left hamstring Wednesday night. He will be reevaluated Thursday.

The defensive whiz appeared to get hurt while switching his feet and diving to catch a wide throw to second base from pitcher Felix Hernandez on a third-inning bunt by Gordon Beckham. Wilson appeared to wince as he fell to record the nifty force out.

Jack Hannahan replaced him.

Wednesday was Wilson's 11th start and 13th game with Seattle since he and pitcher Ian Snell came from Pittsburgh in a trade.

An All-Star in 2004 with the Pirates, Wilson is batting .222 with two RBIs for the Mariners.
