  • Haniger (ankle) expects to miss 10-to-12 weeks due to the Grade 2 right ankle sprain he sustained April 29, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. "From there, honestly, it's like a wait-and-see kind of thing," Haniger said, regarding his timeline for a return once he's able to shed a walking boot. "As far as getting back in games, I think like a rough estimate would be from date of injury is 10-to-12 weeks, but at the same time, I've heard it can go on the earlier end and I've also heard on the longer end." A 10-week recovery would put Haniger on track to return around the second week of July, so the Mariners could look to transfer him to the 60-day injured list at some point to create some more roster flexibility. In the meantime, Haniger's absence will give the struggling Jarred Kelenic a longer leash as a starting outfielder, though the impending return for Kyle Lewis (knee) from the 10-day IL will put some pressure on Kelenic. Haniger, who also missed 11 games earlier in the season while on the COVID-19 IL, has logged just 36 plate appearances on the campaign.

  • Manager Scott Servais said following Saturday's game that Haniger is dealing with a Grade 2 high-ankle sprain, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. Haniger landed on the injured list earlier in the day, and Servais revealed that he is dealing with the middle of the three grades of high-ankle sprains. A target date for Haniger's return has not yet been revealed, but he is facing an extended absence, and it's possible his return could be measured in months rather than weeks.

  • Haniger (ankle) was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday. An IL stint appeared likely after the 31-year-old sustained a high-ankle sprain during Friday's loss to the Marlins, and he'll officially be shelved, while Stuart Fairchild was called up to provide additional outfield depth. Haniger's appearance Friday marked his return from an 11-game absence while on the COVID-19 injured list, and it's not yet clear how much time he'll be forced to miss due to his ankle issue. Jesse Winker and Dylan Moore should see additional playing time in the outfield while Haniger is sidelined.

  • Haniger (ankle) isn't starting Saturday against Miami. Haniger sustained a high-ankle sprain in Friday's matchup against the Marlins and is expected to require a trip to the injured list, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. Dylan Moore is starting in right field and batting ninth Saturday, and he should see additional playing time in Haniger's absence.

  • Haniger (high ankle sprain) will get an MRI and a trip to the injured list seems inevitable, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. He apparently got his cleat caught when he swung and hit a single in the second inning Friday. Haniger is in a walking boot and X-rays were negative. Per Divish, Steven Souza and Stuart Fairchild are the two most logical options to take Haniger's spot on the roster. Even so, the Mariners have enough depth that Abraham Toro will probably continue to get starts in the infield and at designated hitter with Jesse Winker starting in the outfield on a semi-regular basis.
