San Francisco Giants outfielder Mitch Haniger has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 left oblique strain after being a late scratch from the starting lineup on March 10. (MLB.com)
Haniger's shutdown timetable after the diagnosis was five-to-seven days as he should return to baseball activities this week. The 32-year-old has been decimated by injuries in recent seasons and appeared in just 57 games last season. He still managed a .246 average with 11 homers and a .737 OPS -- along with a 113 wRC+ that represents 13% above league average -- in that time. He will split time between right field and designated hitter duties in his first season with the Giants in 2023.
