Figgins had a horrible first season with the Mariners. Seattle doesn't boast too many bright spots outside of King Felix and Ichiro, but Figgins was suppose to bring some life to the Mariners' lineup. In 2010, he did anything but.
With the Angels, Figgins hovered around .300 and eclipsed 100 runs twice. He might not have the same opportunities to produce from a runs stand point since the Mariners are at the bottom of he majors in runs scored, but he can get his average much closer to .300. He only hit .259 in 2010.
As the batting average goes up, so will the stolen bases since Seattle will need to find ways to manufacture runs and Figgins is one of the best base stealers in the league.
Figgins is also moving back to third base, which is where he is most comfortable. Hopefully easing his mind in the field will ease his mind at the plate.
Dustin Ackley will also bring more fire power to the line up along with Justin Smoak and Miguel Olivo which will give Figgins more opportunities to score.
Figgins failed to impress in 2010, but expect a much better output in his second year in Seattle.
