RF,DH - SEA - IL10
On Saturday, the Seattle Mariners placed Mitch Haniger on the 10-day IL with a high ankle sprain.
The 31-year-old outfielder had just returned from the Covid IL and suffered a high ankle sprain in after singling in his first at bat. Haniger has only gotten 35 at-bats so far and has three home runs and a slash line of .200/.222/.708. Fantasy managers should plan on needing a fill-in for longer than the ten days as high ankle sprains can be nagging injuries. Those who roster Julio Rodriguez and Jarred Kelenic can rest knowing both are going to have plenty of playing time going forward. Seattle recalled outfielder Stuart Fairchild from Triple-A Tacoma.
Mitch Haniger left Friday's game against the Marlins with a high ankle sprain.
Haniger landed awkwardly after fouling off a 1-2 fastball but stayed in the game. On the next pitch, he singled and then gave way to a pinch-runner. Haniger just returned after missing 11 games on the COVID-19 IL, and unfortunately looks likely to miss more time going forward. The Mariners should provide a timetable for his return at some point later today or this weekend.
OF Mitch Haniger has been reinstated from the injured list. RP Matt Koch was DFA'd.
Haniger returns after missing 11 games after testing positive for COVID. He'll look to rebound after a shaky start to the season. Haniger hit .176 with a .295 wOBA in 8 games in 2022.
The Seattle Mariners placed Mitch Haniger on the COVID IL on Saturday.

Mitch Haniger went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk in Thursday's 5-1 win over the White Sox.
Haniger smacked his third homer of the season on Thursday, which is good for second in the big leagues. However, the on-base numbers have not quite been there for the slugger, as he has tallied just four total hits this season, three of which are those homers.
