Mitch Haniger hit a pair of homers against the A's in Monday's victory.

Haniger has struggled with men on base of late, but he's done a fine job of getting on base himself and he's up to seven homers in 23 games this month. It didn't look like a strong finish was on the way a month ago, but he's sporting a fine .840 now after bottoming out at .743 on Aug. 28.

Mitch Haniger went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer and a double against the Rangers on Monday.

Haniger did nothing for 2 1/2 months after his first DL stint, but he's suddenly found it again these last two weeks, going 22-for-45 with four homers and 11 RBI in his last 11 games. Since he's batting second again, at least part of the time, and playing regularly, it makes sense to ride out the hot streak in mixed leagues.

Mitch Haniger finished 3-for-4 with a triple, home run and two RBI in Saturday's victory against the Angels.

Haniger is hitting .486 over his past nine games with three doubles, a triple, three home runs and nine RBI. He has recorded six multi-hit games over the span, too. Haniger will look to keep it rolling against Parker Bridwell and the Angels in Sunday's series finale.

Mitch Haniger went 4-for-5 with a double and a home run as the Mariners routed the Athletics in Seattle on Sunday.

Hainger crushed a solo homer in the seventh inning that increased the M's lead to 5-1. He also plated a run with a fielder's choice during a five-run uprising in the eighth. His bat has begun to heat up again in recent days and he's now hitting .262/.351/.452 with 10 homers and 36 RBI on the year.

Mitch Haniger went 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in the Mariners' loss to the Orioles on Wednesday.

Haniger did his part, doubling twice and launching a game-tying solo homer in the top of the eighth inning. He had been struggling mightily since returning from the disabled list on August 19, but the 26-year-old outfielder is certainly capable of finishing strong down the stretch. It's been an injury-marred season for him so far.

Mitch Haniger is not in the Mariners' lineup Tuesday against the Orioles.

Haniger is three for his last 30 with nine strikeouts and could probably use a night off to recharge the batteries. Danny Valencia will be in right field and batting sixth against Orioles right-hander Dylan Bundy.

Mitch Haniger went 2-for-4 and cranked a grand slam to lead his club to a 7-6 win over the Rays on Saturday.

His prodigious shot off starter Jake Odorizzi turned a one-run deficit into a three-run lead in the third inning. This was his first game since being hit in the face by a Jacob deGrom pitch on July 29th. He has missed about 60 games this year with various injuries. The young outfielder has a .259 batting average with eight home runs and 28 RBI in 59 games.

Mariners activated OF Mitch Haniger from the 10-day disabled list.

Haniger has been shut down for a few weeks after getting drilled in the face by a fastball from Jacob deGrom. With Jarrod Dyson sidelined, he should return to an everyday role in the M's outfield and is worth a look in mixed leagues where he may have been dropped.

Mitch Haniger (face) went 1-for-3 with a home run, two walks, and two runs scored in his rehab debut Saturday with Triple-A Tacoma.

Haniger served as Tacoma's designated hitter for the entire 11-inning victory. He should be cleared to play the outfield on Sunday and seems poised to return to the Mariners' active roster around the middle of next week. Haniger has been on the disabled list since taking a Jacob deGrom fastball to the face on July 29.

Mitch Haniger (face) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday.

It will be Haniger's first game action since being hit in the face last month. He'll DH for the Rainiers on Saturday, though it shouldn't be long until he's ready to play the outfield. The 26-year-old has slashed .255/.358/.425 in his 58 games for Seattle this year.

Mitch Haniger (face) is scheduled to take batting practice on Friday and if all goes well could progress to a minor league rehab assignment before the weekend is through.

Haniger is on the mend after taking a 95 mph fastball from Jacob deGrom to the face nearly two weeks ago. Barring any setbacks, he could be ready to rejoin the Mariners by the end of next week.

Mitch Haniger (face) is expected to take batting practice this weekend.

It's been nearly two weeks since Haniger was struck in the face by a 95 mph fastball from Jacob deGrom. Luckily he's doing much better and should begin a minor league rehab assignment within the next few days. The 26-year-old has gone through plenty of peaks and valleys this year, batting .255 with seven homers over 212 at-bats for Seattle.

Mitch Haniger (face) has been cleared for weightlifting and light conditioning.

The hope is that he will be ready for full baseball workouts by Thursday or Friday. Haniger landed on the disabled list at the end of July after suffering a small nasal fracture and facial laceration when he was beaned by a Jacob deGrom pitch. He figures to miss the majority of August.

Mitch Haniger (face) has not yet been cleared for any physical activity.

The hope is that Haniger will be cleared to begin lifting weights and conditioning in the next few days, but there's no timetable for his return to baseball activities. Haniger suffered a severely lacerated lip, small nasal fracture and a mild concussion when he was hit by a Jacob deGrom pitch last Saturday. The hope had been that he would only miss 10-14 days, but it sounds like it'll probably be longer than that.
