Player Outlook
Mitch Garver rebounded from an injury-riddled 2022 season with a productive campaign, posting a 138 wRC+, the third highest of his career. Garver played in 87 games, the most since 2019, but he missed just over one-third of the season after hurting his knee in early April. When healthy, Garver was the everyday designated hitter, mixing in 27 games behind the plate. Garver's success in the batter's box was fully supported by his underlying metrics, which bodes well for continuing to log playing time at designated hitter. Garver has never been known for his defensive prowess, so it's not a surprise the metrics were not kind to him in his limited time defensively. Even so, Garver regained catcher eligibility and at least for the upcoming season, he's borderline useful in single-catcher formats and a solid option in two catcher leagues. He will work as Cal Raleigh's backup and the Mariners' top option at designated hitter when healthy, after signing a two-year deal with Seattle this winter.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Giving way to Haniger on Wednesday

    Garver is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Guardians. Garver and Mitch Haniger seem to have settled into a timeshare at the designated hitter spot of late, and it'll be the latter's turn to start Wednesday after Garver was included in the lineup for Tuesday's 8-5 win. The Mariners should have room for both players in the starting nine versus left-handed pitching, but neither of the two appears to be locked into a full-time role versus righties at the moment.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Productive in Tuesday's win

    Garver went 2-for-5 with an RBI fielder's choice, a run-scoring double and another two-bagger in a win over the Guardians on Tuesday. Garver pushed the Mariners' lead to 4-1 in the third inning with his first two-bagger of the night, which plated Cal Raleigh. The former would eventually lace another double, but his second RBI came on his seventh-inning groundout that brought home Ty France. Garver is still sitting on a profoundly disappointing .179 average but has driven in 13 runs over his last 13 games. That's a stretch in which he's laced eight of his 10 hits for extra bases while posting a .294 average and .929 OPS across 20 plate appearances with men in scoring position.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Hitting bench Sunday

    Garver is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers. Garver had started each of the past five games at either designated hitter or catcher, going just 2-for-18 but drawing seven walks over that stretch. The 33-year-old's .646 OPS still represents a more than 200-point downturn from his 2023 mark with the Rangers (.870), but Garver still looks like he'll play frequently against left-handed pitching and fairly regularly against right-handed pitching.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Smashes homer in win

    Garver went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run and two walks in Friday's 3-2 win over the Rangers. Garver is up to eight homers this season, and he's hit three of them over his last eight games. In that stretch, he's batting .250 (6-for-24) with eight RBI and two doubles. It's encouraging to see more power out of the 33-year-old -- he went 18 games without a homer between May 13 and June 5. Garver is slashing a poor .176/.300/.352 across 230 plate appearances this season, though he's added 25 RBI, 23 runs scored and 10 doubles while seeing fairly steady playing time at designated hitter.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Blasts solo home run

    Garver went 1-for-3 with a home run and a walk in Saturday's loss to the Royals. The designated hitter took Alec Marsh deep in the fifth inning to tie up the score. It was Garver's seventh homer of the season and his second in his last three games. Garver has struggled to the tune of a .180/.292/.348 line thus far, but he may be starting to turn it around with eight RBI and four extra-base hits over his last six games.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Goes yard in Thursday's win

    Garver went 2-for-2 with a home run, two walks, two RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Athletics on Thursday. Garver was a one-man wrecking crew for Seattle, delivering an RBI single in the fourth inning before putting an exclamation point on the M's shutout victory with a ninth-inning solo blast. While Thursday's performance marked the veteran catcher's second two-hit effort and second multi-RBI performance in the last four games, Garver's first two months-plus in Seattle have been highly disappointing -- he's sitting on a .175 batting average and .612 OPS through his first 200 plate appearances, and his 30.5 percent strikeout rate is his highest since he whiffed at a 45.7 percent clip during the COVID-shortened 2020 season.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Sitting down Wednesday

    Garver isn't in the Mariners' lineup for Wednesday's game against the Athletics. Garver appeared to break out of his slump Sunday with a 2-for-4 performance against the Angels, but he will now get a breather following Tuesday's 0-for-3 outing. Mitch Haniger will fill in as Seattle's designated hitter while batting seventh.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Ends slump Sunday

    Garver went 2-for-4 with a three-run double in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Angels. Garver entered Sunday 0-for-20 over his last seven games. His last extra-base hit was May 21, and he hadn't knocked in a run since May 17. He was able to put an end to all of those slumps, delivering a big knock in the eighth inning to give the Mariners some breathing room. The 33-year-old has struggled to get anything going at the plate this year, slashing .170/.276/.309 with five home runs, 17 RBI, 18 runs scored and eight doubles over 192 plate appearances as Seattle's primary designated hitter.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Sitting again Monday

    Garver is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Yankees. Garver returned to action Friday after missing a couple games due to back spasms, but he now finds himself on the bench for a second straight contest. Mitch Haniger will serve as the designated hitter while Luke Raley receives a start in the outfield.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Not in Sunday's lineup

    Garver is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles. Garver started the first two games of the series after missing the previous two contests with back spasms, and he'll sit for Sunday's finale. Cal Raleigh will rest his legs as the designated hitter while Seby Zavala starts behind the plate.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Drives in run in return

    Garver (back) went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in a loss to the Orioles on Friday. Garver was back in the lineup after missing the last two games with back spasms, and he delivered the first run of the contest with his first-inning single. The veteran offseason addition now has seven RBI in May and has reached safely in eight of the last 10 games, but he's still carrying an abysmal .176/.286/.344 slash line across 147 plate appearances on the season.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Back in lineup

    Garver (back) is batting third as the designated hitter for Friday's game against Baltimore. Garver was scratched Tuesday with back spasms and was forced to miss Wednesday's contest. However, he'll be back in action for Friday's series opener against the Orioles. In May, Garver is batting .244 (10-for-41) with two homers and seven RBI.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Out Wednesday with back spasms

    Garver (back) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Royals, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports. He'll remain on the bench for the second day in a row while he manages upper-back spasms. Mitch Haniger will get a day out of the outfield and serve as the Mariners' designated hitter while Garver rests up.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Battling back spasms

    Garver was scratched from Seattle's lineup ahead of Tuesday's game against Kansas City due to upper-back spasms, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports. The 33-year-old backstop missed a few games in March due to back spasms, though manager Scott Servais said Garver's current injury is unrelated to his previous issue. No timeline was given for his return, but it's possible the M's hold him out for a game or two in order to allow him to properly recover.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Late scratch Tuesday

    Garver (undisclosed) was scratched from the Mariners' lineup Tuesday versus the Royals. Garver was originally set to operate as the team's designated hitter and bat third Tuesday, but he'll now take a seat. It's unclear what caused the 33-year-old to be scratched, and more information will likely be provided following the contest. In the meantime, Mitch Haniger will slot in at designated hitter while Sam Haggerty will enter the lineup in left field and bat ninth against Kansas City.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Homers, plates three RBI in win

    Garver went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer, a walk and three RBI in Sunday's 8-4 win over the Athletics. Garver extended the Mariners' lead with a two-run blast in the fifth and also got things rolling for the M's with an RBI single in the opening frame. The two hits ended a mini three-game slump for the 33-year-old, though he's still been hitting well in May, slashing .300/.405/.567 with two homers, six RBI and five runs over his last eight games.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Swats pair of doubles Saturday

    Garver went 2-for-5 with an RBI double and another two-bagger in a win over the Astros on Saturday. Garver plated Jorge Polanco with his fourth-inning double, giving him his fourth RBI over the last seven games. The veteran offseason acquisition's solid performance Saturday notwithstanding, the early portion of his Mariners tenure qualifies as a considerable disappointment that's illustrated by his anemic .152/.262/.315 slash line and 32.7 percent strikeout rate across 107 plate appearances.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Wins game with walk-off homer

    Garver went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk Monday in a 2-1 win over Atlanta. It's been a rough season for Garver, as he's slashing just .150/.266/.313 through 94 plate appearances. However, Seattle has stuck with him as the team's primary DH, and that decision paid off Monday when he launched a two-run, ninth-inning shot to give the Mariners a come-from-behind win. Garver could be building a bit of momentum, as he's gone deep in two of his past four games.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: On bench for Game 2

    Garver is not in the starting lineup for Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader in Colorado. Garver will take a seat after he went 0-for-4 with two punchouts in the team's 2-1 extra-inning Game 1 loss Sunday. Cal Raleigh will slot in at designated hitter while Seby Zavala enters the lineup at catcher and bats ninth in the nightcap.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Slugs first homer

    Garver went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in a win over the Reds on Wednesday. Garver finally connected on his first round tripper of the season in the sixth inning, snapping a 1-1 tie with a 393-foot shot to left field off Andrew Abbott. The veteran's blast also served as his fourth extra-base hit overall (out of eight total hits), but he's still sporting an ugly .160/.283/.280 slash line through his first 60 plate appearances.
