Mitch Haniger's season most likely over

Mitch Haniger (back) has still not been officially ruled out for the season, but his back hasn't shown any tangible improvement and he's likely to sit out the team's remaining games."He still has a few issues going on," manager Scott Servais said. "Obviously we're at the point in the season where it doesn't look great for him getting back on the field. I don't rule out anything, but it would be very difficult."

Fantasy Impact

Haniger has been in a holding pattern for weeks now. If his season is over, he would finish 2019 slashing .220/.314/.463 with 15 home runs, 32 RBI, 46 runs scored and four stolen bases in 63 games.

Mitch Haniger could return before the season ends

Mitch Haniger (back) hasn't been ruled out for the rest of the regular season yet.

Fantasy Impact

Haniger hasn't been cleared to resume baseball activities after being shut down from his rehab assignment, though the Mariners still believe he has a chance to return. Manager Scott Servais did admit that "the clock is ticking," so Haniger will need to recover quickly if he has any shot of playing in 2019. Haniger can safely be dropped in redraft leagues.

Mitch Haniger without a timetable to return

Mitch Haniger (groin/back) no longer has a timetable for return in the wake of his latest setback.

Fantasy Impact

"If that takes five days, great. If it takes two to three weeks, I have no idea," Haniger said. "They haven't given me a timeline because I don't think there is a timeline right now. We're just trying to get better every day and hopefully there'll be a point where I'm good to go." Haniger is still holding out hope that he will return by the end of the season. He estimates his current back issues stem from some overcompensation he was guilty of while moving around in the immediate wake of his early-June surgery for a ruptured testicle. With the playoffs coming up in most leagues and with only a little more than a month of the season left, it's safe to drop Haniger in all formats that don't have an IL spot.

Mitch Haniger rehab delayed due to back tightness

Mitch Haniger (groin) is dealing with some lower-back tightness and is day-to-day amid his rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma.

Fantasy Impact

Haniger is questionable for Saturday's game, so it doesn't seem like a serious setback. He had been rehabbing at High-A but was transferred to Triple-A this weekend.
