Mitch Haniger Rehabbing At Home

Seattle Mariners outfielder Mitch Haniger (back, core) has been doing core exercises for strength and mobility at home after having back and core surgeries in January. Haniger has been the walking wounded the past year, as his 2019 season was ruined by injuries. He played in just 63 games for the Mariners and had a disappointing .220 average with 15 home runs and 32 RBI after being selected to the All-Star team for the first time in 2018. The delayed MLB season is good news for players like Haniger, but there's still no timetable on when he will be able to return to game action. The 29-year-old might still be worth a stash in deep mixed leagues and AL-only formats, but you can ignore him for now in shallow leagues until we have a better idea on when he'll be ready.

Mitch Haniger's Rehab Moving Slowly

Seattle Mariners outfielder Mitch Haniger's (back) rehab process continues to move along slowly, as he's limited to walking for about another week before he can move to the next phase of his rehab. Haniger had microdiscectomy three weeks ago for a herniated disc, and he also had surgery in February to fix a torn adductor muscle in his groin. He's been out the last nine months with no timetable for a return, but he's optimistic he's on the road to recovery. There's no telling when the 29-year-old will make his season debut for the M's, which will leave him on most waiver wires in mixed leagues to start the 2020 season. His absence will mean more playing time for Jake Fraley, Braden Bishop and Kyle Lewis.

Mitch Haniger Not Doing Much At Camp

Seattle Mariners outfielder Mitch Haniger (back) is back in camp but cannot do any lifting or much activities for another month following microdiscectomy surgery on his back. There remains no timetable for Haniger's return, but he fully expects to return this season and is relieved to finally have some answers for his back issues. It's looking like the 29-year-old will miss most of the first half of the season, which likely rules him out for most mixed league drafts. Haniger played in only 63 games in 2019 because of groin and back injuries and hit just .220 with 15 home runs and 32 RBI. He showed what he can do when healthy, though, hitting .285/.366/.493 with 26 home runs, 93 RBI and eight steals in 2018. Jake Fraley and Braden Bishop will have an opportunity to play more to begin the season until Haniger can return.
