Haniger (oblique) will not begin his rehab assignment Friday as expected after feeling sore following Thursday's workouts, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Haniger was progressing fairly well from an oblique strain, and although this isn't being considered a "setback" per se, it will delay his return to action. It's unclear when the Mariners will deploy him on his rehab assignment, but all signs seem to be pointing toward the beginning of next week.
