Mitch Haniger went 0-for-4 on Thursday to finish the series against the Yankees 1-for-13.

Haniger has still been a very valuable player for the Mariners this season, but he hasn't been a very good hitter these last six weeks; he's batting .232/.310/.384 in 151 at-bats since May 10.

Mitch Haniger hit a walk-off two-run homer in the ninth inning to give the Mariners an 8-6 victory over the Angels on Wednesday.

Haniger's two-run shot came off Oliver Drake with Jean Segura on base to give the Mariners the win and also a three-game sweep of the Angels. It's the 16th homer of the season for Haniger, and the third blast in two games for the upstart slugger. There will be highs and lows with the 27-year-old outfielder, but when he's locked in, he looks like a star. He's now on pace for 38 homers and 124 RBI this season.

Mitch Haniger went 2-for-3 with a pair of home runs, a walk and three RBI in Tuesday's 6-3 victory against the Angels.

Haniger saw something in Jaime Barria's delivery that he really liked, as he belted a solo homer off the starter in the first inning before belting a two-run shot in the fifth. He has 15 homers, which is just one short of his career high set in 2017, and his 50 RBI already represent a career best. He is on pace for 34 homers and 111 RBI as he emerges as a fantasy stud.

Mitch Haniger went 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI, and the Mariners held off the Rays 5-4 on Thursday.

Haniger had two of the game's bigger hits, delivering a two-run single in the second inning before bopping a solo homer in the fifth. The homer was the 13th of the year for the 27-year-old, and his three RBI gives him 46 runs batted in this year, third-most in the American League. Haniger was on his way to a breakout year in 2017 before injury, and he's well on his way again this year, batting .274/.360/.516 in 61 games.
Jun 7 - 11:06 PM

Mitch Haniger homered off Matt Andriese in the bottom of the 13th to give the Mariners a 4-3 win over the Rays on Friday.

It was Haniger's only hit of the game, but he did walk in three of his previous five plate appearances, including once intentionally. Haniger hit just .233/.328/.330 with one homer in May after coming through with a 1.085 OPS and 10 homers in April. He has a good chance at 30 homers for the year, though.

Mitch Haniger (wrist) is back in the lineup and hitting third against the Athletics on Thursday.

Haniger ended up only missing Wednesday's game -- plus the end of Tuesday's game -- after being hit in the wrist with a pitch. He was able to swing the bat in the cages on Wednesday, and now he's back in the middle of the order for the M's. Haniger has been one of the keys to Seattle's strong play in 2018, slashing .296/.381/.568 with 11 homers and 36 RBI over 47 games. Daily Slant: Mitch Haniger - Back in the lineup facing Joshua Lucas, Haniger is a solid tournament play today, since he will likely be pretty low owned at his salary and people scared of his wrist injury. With Nelson Cruz's protection behind him and solid on-base hitters ahead of him, Haniger should have plenty of chances to do damage against Lucas who's making his first career MLB start.
May 24 - 1:12 PM

Mitch Haniger (wrist) was able to hit in the batting cages and is hopeful to play against the Athletics on Thursday.

Haniger is out of the lineup on Wednesday with a bruise in his right wrist, but the fact he's feeling well enough to swing the sticks gives him a chance to get back into the lineup quickly. The Mariners might want to take precaution -- they've had as many injuries to their lineup as anyone -- and give him an extra day, however. Either way, it doesn't sound like this will be a long-term injury.
May 23 - 8:20 PM

Mitch Haniger (wrist) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Athletics.

Haniger will sit wth a contusion in his right wrist, and Jon Andreoli will take his place in the lineup and make his major league debut. Haniger suffered the injury when he was hit by a pitch by Trevor Cahill, and is considered day-to-day with x-rays coming back negative. A trip to the disabled list will likely be avoided.
May 23 - 6:23 PM

X-rays turned up negative on Mitch Haniger's left wrist.

Haniger was removed from Tuesday's game against the Athletics after getting hit on the left arm by a Trevor Cahill pitch, but he escaped with a bruise and can be considered day-to-day. The 27-year-old outfielder has an outstanding .296/.381/.568 batting line with 11 home runs, 36 RBI, three stolen bases, and 22 runs scored in 47 games this season.
May 23 - 12:07 AM

Mitch Haniger was removed from Tuesday's game against the Athletics after getting hit on the elbow by a pitch.

Trevor Cahill plunked him to lead off the top of the fourth inning. Haniger remained in the game initially, but Andrew Romine replaced him in right field in the bottom of the fifth. It's likely a day-to-day situation.
May 22 - 11:18 PM

Mitch Haniger hit a two-run, game-tying homer in the bottom of the ninth inning, and the Mariners bested the Tigers 3-2 in 11 innings Sunday.

Tigers starter Francisco Liriano blanked the M's for eight innings before handing it off to closer Shane Greene, who allowed a one-out single before Haniger stepped to the dish. Haniger proceeded to crush a hanging breaking ball from Greene, giving him 11 dongs and 36 RBI on the year. The 27-year-old is hitting .298/.379/.571 through 46 games this year.
May 20 - 10:12 PM

Mitch Haniger went 3-for-5 with two RBI in an extra-innings victory over the Rangers on Tuesday.

The first RBI came on a triple that scored Jean Segura in the first inning, his second three-bagger of the year. The 27-year-old outfielder has been Seattle's most consistent hitter on the 2018 season, as seen in his .295/.383/.577 line along with 10 homers and 32 RBI over 41 games.
May 16 - 2:50 AM

Mitch Haniger hit his 10th homer of the season and scored three runs in a 10-4 victory over the Indians on Sunday.

Haniger also tripled in the contest, and his slugging percentage is now up to a robust .701 on the season. The 27-year-old outfielder appears to be in the midst of a breakout season for the Mariners, and at some point, you have to wonder when the Mariners move his right-handed bat up in the lineup. As long as he can stay healthy, Haniger offers plenty of value in all formats.
Apr 29 - 4:43 PM

Mitch Haniger had another impressive night at the dish Friday against the Indians, going 2-for-3 with a two-run homer, a double, a walk, and two runs scored.

Haniger accounted for the only offense against Corey Kluber with his homer in the seventh inning. He then contributed to the Mariners’ rally in the ninth inning with a double off Cody Allen. Haniger is now batting .307/.382/.682 through 26 games and is tied for second in the AL with nine homers and 26 RBI. An oblique injury prevented a full-fledged breakout campaign last season, but we could be witnessing it this year.
