Haniger went on the IL with a ruptured testicle. Although he had tallied 15 home runs and 46 runs in 63 games, he was also batting just .220 with a 28.6% strikeout rate. He was selling out for more power, pulling more fly balls but making less contact in the process. Scheduled to begin a rehab assignment on August 13, he can potentially help investors during the final few weeks.

We know that Haniger offers plenty of upside when he returns from the IL, but it may continue to be rough going as we've seen in the first half. If you have the room on your bench to keep him, go for it, but don't sacrifice anything to do so.

Haniger is currently on the injured list with a ruptured testicle that required surgery and should cost him at least a few weeks. When healthy, Haniger has displayed an excellent power stroke but has also struck out at an alarming rate.
