Mitch Haniger ended up 2-for-5 with a solo home run with three RBI in Saturday's game against the Athletics.
Haniger has posted back-to-back multi-hit games for the first time this season. There's something about the Oakland pitching staff that Haniger really likes, going 4-for-9 (.444) with two homers and seven RBI. Overall he is slashing .310/.423/.619. As long as he can stay healthy he should be a strong fantasy option in mixed formats for his power and solid average. Apr 15 - 3:36 AM

Mitch Haniger had a three-run homer and an RBI single in the Mariners' 7-4 win over the A's on Friday.

Not only does Haniger have three homers already, but he's sporting a 6/8 K/BB ratio that's a huge improvement on his 93/31 mark from 96 games last year. He should continue to be of use in mixed leagues, assuming that he can stay healthy.

Mitch Haniger hit a two-run home run, his second of the year, in a win over the Indians on Sunday.

Haniger hit the two-run shot off Indians reliever Tyler Olson in the seventh inning. It was actually his second homer in as many days after he hit one in Saturday's loss. Injuries cut short a promising 2017 campaign, but the 27-year-old is off to a fast start in 2018.

Mitch Haniger blasted his first homer of the spring on Wednesday in a 6-5 victory over the Giants in the Cactus League.

The homer came off of Derek Law in the fifth inning, and it was a solo shot. It hasn't been a spectacular spring training for the outfielder, but the good news is he looks fully recovered from his hand injury that sidelined him at the beginning of the Cactus League. When he was healthy he was very impressive in 2017, and if he can stay on the field enough to do so, he has a chance to be a breakout star.

Mitch Haniger (hand) could return to Cactus League action on Saturday.

The outfielder took live batting practice off of Nick Vincent on Friday and said that his hand felt great afterwards. M's manager Scott Servais noted that he's far enough along in his conditioning and has been taking part in defensive drills already, so as long as he's feeling healthy he could be cleared for game action.

Mitch Haniger (hand) will take live batting practice against Nick Vincent on Saturday.

He'll be joined by his new teammate, Ichiro Suzuki. Haniger should be cleared for game action if the session goes well. He's been slowed by a sore right hand but looks to be on track for Opening Day.
Mar 8 - 4:29 PM

Mariners manager Scott Servais said Tuesday that Mitch Haniger (hand) is on track to make his Cactus League debut this weekend.

Haniger made it through a live batting practice session Tuesday without issue. He came down with some soreness in his right hand late last month, but the 27-year-old outfielder has a decent shot of being ready for Opening Day as long as everything goes smoothly from here.
Mar 6 - 4:05 PM

Mitch Haniger (hand) is scheduled to take batting practice Tuesday.

Good news for the Mariners. Haniger has yet to make his spring debut due to soreness in his right hand, but he expects to get into game action soon. Barring a setback, he still has plenty of time to get at-bats before Opening Day.
Mar 6 - 3:17 PM

Mitch Haniger has been cleared by a hand specialist to resume swinging a bat.

Haniger has been dealing with soreness in his right hand and had been limited to one-handed swings in the cage, but he can swing regularly now and could return to Cactus League action later this week. Barring a setback, he has plenty of time to get ready for Opening Day.
Mar 4 - 11:32 AM

Mitch Haniger (hand) has progressed to taking one-handed swings in the cage.

Haniger has been slowed in recent days due to soreness in his right hand, but he's beginning to make some progress. Still, there hasn't been an announcement on when he could return to game action.
Feb 27 - 10:53 AM

Mariners manager Scott Servais said Monday that Mitch Haniger (hand) could play in games in the next day or two.

Haniger has been taking it easy in recent days due to soreness in his right hand. He's been doing everything but hitting over the last few days, but it probably won't be long before he has no restrictions.
Feb 26 - 12:04 PM

Mariners' manager Scott Servais said Saturday that Mitch Haniger will be held out of the club's first 4-5 spring games due to soreness in his hand.

It doesn't sound like anything major, the Mariners are simply being cautious. Servais even admitted as much, saying that due to teammate Ryon Healy's hand injury he may be overreacting a little, but doesn't want to take any chances.
Feb 24 - 10:25 AM

Mitch Haniger finished with three doubles, two singles and a run scored across five at-bats in Saturday's road win against the Angels.

Haniger is finishing up his season strong, hitting .365 with 17 runs scored, eight doubles, a triple, seven homers and 14 RBI in the month of September. He has four games with at least three hits in September, and 13 multi-hit games in the month.

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.
Tue, Sep 26, 2017 02:18:00 AM

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.
