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: Not in Sunday's lineup

    Garver is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles.

  • 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: Lifts fourth homer Wednesday

    Garver went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in a loss to the Twins on Wednesday. Garver's fourth-inning solo shot to right field put the Mariners on the board and served as his third time leaving the yard in the last 11 contests. Garver has also reached safely in six consecutive games, perhaps a sign he's finally beginning to work out of the extended slump that's defined the first month-plus of his tenure in Seattle.

  • 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.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Reaches in first two games back

    Garver went 1-for-3 with a double and a walk in a loss to the Guardians on Tuesday. The noteworthy offseason acquisition laced one of four two-baggers on the night for the Mariners, with the double serving as his first hit since returning from a two-game absence due to back spasms. Garver had also reached safely in his first game back Monday, however, drawing a free pass and scoring a run over four plate appearances. The fact he was able to suit up in back-to-back games implies Garver is past his physical issues for the time being.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Back in lineup Monday

    Garver (back) is starting at designated hitter and batting fifth in Monday's game against the Guardians. After starting in the season opener Thursday, Garver missed the next three games against the Red Sox due to back spasms. The 33-year old appears over the injury and will start at DH for Monday's game. With Garver returning, Mitch Haniger will move back to right field while Luke Raley returns to the bench.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Still sitting Sunday

    Garver (back) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox. The 33-year-old was scratched from the lineup Friday due to back spasms and will be sidelined Sunday for the third consecutive contest. Mitch Haniger will receive a turn at designated hitter while Luke Raley starts in right field. Garver should be considered day-to-day until the team updates his status.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Remains out Saturday

    Garver (back) isn't in the Mariners' lineup Saturday against Boston. Garver was scratched from the lineup ahead of Friday's contest due to back spasms, and he will seemingly require another day before he can return to the lineup. Jorge Polanco will serve as Seattle's DH while Garver recovers, allowing Dylan Moore to pick up a start at second base.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Dealing with back spasms

    Garver was scratched from the Mariners' lineup before Friday's game against Boston due to back spasms, Gabrielle Starr of the Boston Herald reports. Garver is officially listed as day-to-day, so his back shouldn't keep him out for very long. The 33-year-old veteran went 1-for-4 with a double in his Mariners debut Thursday and will operate as Seattle's primary DH this season.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Scratched from lineup

    Garver was scratched from the Mariners' lineup ahead of Friday's game against the Red Sox, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. It's unclear at this stage why Garver was taken out of Friday's lineup. Mitch Haniger will serve as Seattle's DH against Boston, moving Luke Raley to right field while Dominic Canzone fills the opening in left.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Slugs first Mariners homer

    Garver went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run in the Mariners' Cactus League tie with the Giants on Tuesday. The offseason addition belted a Jordan Hicks offering in the first inning into the left field seats with Dylan Moore aboard to give Seattle an early 2-0 lead. The hit marked Garver's first in what was his second Cactus League game, and making it all the more impressive was it came off one of Hicks' signature triple-digit sinkers, per Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle. Garver drew the start at designated hitter, where he's expected to log nearly all his playing time in 2024.
