Player Outlook
Mitch Haniger has played a full season just once since 2018 and appeared in only 61 games with the Giants in 2023 because of oblique, forearm and back injuries. That was the first year of a two-year, $28 million agreement with San Francisco, and Haniger will switch teams again this year after being traded to Seattle in January. Haniger should be at full strength leading into the start of spring training and will be given every opportunity to claim an everyday role, but it's very hard to trust that he can be a reliable or useful presence on a fantasy roster. When he was healthy last season, the now 33-year-old outfielder posted career worsts in batting average (.209) and OPS (.631) while tallying only six home runs across 299 plate appearances.

  • Mariners' Mitch Haniger: Sitting for second time in series

    Haniger is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Yankees. Haniger will hit the bench for the second time in the series, and he could find himself in more of a part-time role or short-side platoon role moving forward after the Mariners recently welcomed Dominic Canzone back from the injured list. With Canzone and the hot-hitting Luke Raley having made cases for regular roles in the corner outfield, Mitch Garver could represent Haniger's primary competition for playing time at designated hitter. Haniger has turned in an underwhelming .587 OPS in May and is slashing .217/.280/.361 overall on the season.

  • Mariners' Mitch Haniger: Perfect at plate in loss

    Haniger went 3-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Royals. Haniger took Kansas City closer James McArthur deep in the ninth inning, but it didn't turn into a rally for the Mariners. The homer was Haniger's second in May and sixth of the year, but he's hitting a poor .182 (8-for-44) this month. He started the season well, and he's now slashing .214/.277/.372 with 21 RBI, 17 runs scored and five doubles through 40 contests. Haniger continues to fill a near everyday role between right field and designated hitter.

  • Mariners' Mitch Haniger: Hits homer, sac fly

    Haniger went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and an RBI sacrifice fly during Tuesday's 10-6 win over Minnesota. Haniger got the Mariners on the board in the second inning, tagging Bailey Ober for a long ball to lead off the frame. The homer could be what Haniger needs to break the slump he's currently in, as he's gone 7-for-56 (.125) with a 35.6 percent strikeout rate since April 20.

  • Mariners' Mitch Haniger: Knocks grand slam

    Haniger went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in Friday's win over Arizona. Haniger's blast in the sixth inning gave the Mariners enough cushion to pull away with a victory. It was his fourth homer of the season and first since April 15, snapping a seven-game drought. The veteran outfielder is 3-for-25 (.120) with 11 strikeouts and no walks over his last six contests. On the year, Haniger is slashing .244/.306/.422 through 98 plate appearances.

  • Mariners' Mitch Haniger: Enjoys big game at dish

    Haniger went 2-for-3 with a home run, a double, a walk, three total RBI and two total runs Monday in a 9-3 win over the Reds. Haniger batted cleanup as the Mariners' DH and drilled a two-run homer in the third inning along with a run-scoring double in the seventh. The slugger extended his hitting streak to six games, though this was his first multi-hit effort during that stretch. Haniger appears to be fully healthy this year following two straight injury-plagued campaigns, and he's had good results at the plate thus far, slashing .286/.375/.500 with three homers, 11 RBI and nine runs through 64 plate appearances.

  • Mariners' Mitch Haniger: Slugs second homer Tuesday

    Haniger went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in a loss to the Blue Jays on Tuesday. Haniger was one of the few bright spots in another disappointing night for the Mariners, getting Seattle to within two runs in the eighth inning with a 359-shot to left field with Julio Rodriguez aboard. Haniger's round tripper was his first since Opening Day, and it also marked his first extra-base hit in the last five games.

  • Mariners' Mitch Haniger: Gets first day off of 2024

    Haniger is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers. Haniger will take a seat for the first time this season after he had started in each of the Mariners' first nine games while hitting .290 with one home run, four RBI and four runs. According to Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times, the oft-injured Haniger is fully healthy at the moment and will be available to pinch hit Sunday, so his absence from the lineup is strictly for maintenance purposes. The Mariners hope to have him available to start in all three games of their series in Toronto to begin the upcoming week.

  • Mariners' Mitch Haniger: Clubs long ball on Opening Day

    Haniger went 2-for-3 with a home run, a walk, two total runs and two total RBI in Thursday's loss to the Red Sox. Haniger drilled a two-run homer to right field in the fourth inning for Seattle's first runs of the campaign. It was a promising start to the season for the 33-year-old, who is coming off a pair of injury-plagued campaigns. The last time Haniger made it through a full season mostly healthy was 2021, when he slugged 39 homers and notched 100 RBI over 157 games. That makes him a somewhat alluring option in fantasy, though the health concerns present significant risk.

  • Mariners' Mitch Haniger: Pops third spring homer

    Haniger went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in a Cactus League win over the Brewers on Thursday. Haniger's solo homer in the first inning was his third of spring and pushed his Cactus League average and OPS to .450 and 1.450, respectively, across 22 plate appearances. The veteran outfielder, who's enjoying a clean bill of health after an injury-hampered 2023 season with the Giants, has also professed several times this spring that he feels extremely comfortable being back in Seattle after a year away.

  • Mariners' Mitch Haniger: Homers in first spring at-bat

    Haniger started at designated hitter and went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in the Mariners' Cactus League loss to the Guardians on Sunday. Haniger sent a Tyler Beede offering into the bullpen in the first inning, his first official at-bat since returning to the Mariners this winter after a one-year sabbatical in San Francisco. Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports Haniger's shot had 108 mph of exit velocity and a distance of 384 feet, certainly encouraging for a veteran that was riddled with injuries in 2023. The outfielder has already expressed his satisfaction with being back in Seattle, and he's been working extensively with a familiar face in director of hitting strategy Jarret DeHart, who was on staff during Haniger's initial Mariners tenure, and a new hire in offensive coordinator Brant Brown.

  • Mariners' Mitch Haniger: Ready for spring action

    Haniger (back) is batting second as the designated hitter for Sunday's spring game against the Guardians. The veteran outfielder finished 2023 on the injured list with a back strain, but he's good to go early in spring training. Haniger had a career-worst .631 OPS in just 61 games with the Giants last season as he also dealt with oblique and forearm issues, but the Mariners are hoping for better injury luck in 2024 after acquiring him for Robbie Ray (elbow).

  • Mariners' Mitch Haniger: Dealt to Seattle

    The Giants traded Haniger (back), Anthony DeSclafani (elbow) and cash to the Mariners on Friday in exchange for Robbie Ray (elbow), Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. Haniger is coming off a 2023 campaign in which he slashed .209/.266/.365 -- easily his worst season at the plate -- and missed most of the year due to oblique, forearm and back injuries. However, Haniger maintained an .817 OPS during five years with the Mariners prior to joining the Giants, and the familiar scenery could spark a return to form for the 33-year-old. Haniger will make $20 million this season and holds a $15.5 million player option for 2025.

  • Giants' Mitch Haniger: Shut down with back strain

    The Giants placed Haniger on the 10-day injured list Friday with a lower back strain, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. It's an early shutdown for Haniger, who appeared in only 61 games this season while slashing .209/.266/.365 with six home runs and 28 RBI across 229 plate appearances. The 32-year-old outfielder is owed $20 million in 2024 and carries a $15.5 million player option for 2025.

  • Giants' Mitch Haniger: Three RBI in win

    Haniger went 2-for-4 with two doubles and three RBI in Sunday's 11-10 win over the Rockies. Haniger plated a run in the fifth with his first double of the game and then two more in the sixth with another two-bagger. It was just his second multi-hit game since returning from the injured list Aug. 29, and he doubled his RBI total since his return with Sunday's performance. In his 16 games back, Haniger is slashing just .163/.241/.408 and has a 31.5 percent strikeout rate.
