Mariners' Evan White: Out at least three months
Mariners general manager Justin Hollander said he expects White to miss a minimum of three months after undergoing surgery on his left hip May 22, MLB.com reports. "The surgery released the tendon that was impinging his joint and also cleaned up significant scar tissue in and around the hip area," Hollander said. "It will obviously be a lengthy rehab process. I would say three months minimum for him to be back out on a baseball field in some sort of rehab-type activity."
White appears to be headed for another lost season after he required another procedure on the same hip he had surgically repaired in 2021. The 27-year-old is expected to head to the Mariners' spring training complex in Arizona later this week to begin what will likely be an arduous rehab process. The Mariners won't have a more specific timeline for White's return until he gets further along in his rehab, but Hollander's comments suggest the first baseman won't be ready to return from the 60-day injured list until September at the earliest. White had previously been shelved after suffering a Grade 2 left groin strain while playing for Triple-A Tacoma on April 1, with the Mariners later determining after follow-up tests that he needed another hip surgery....

Mariners' Evan White: Undergoes surgery
White underwent hip surgery Monday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
White landed on the injured list in April with a left adductor strain, and the decision was ultimately made to send him under the knife. A timeline for his recovery was not revealed, but his absence will likely wind up being measured in months.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Heads to 60-day IL
The Mariners recalled White from Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday and placed him on the 60-day injured list with a left adductor strain.
White suffered the injury while playing in an April 1 game with Tacoma, but he'll be moved to the 60-day major-league IL so that the Mariners can open up a 40-man roster spot. The 26-year-old hasn't appeared in a game at the MLB level since May 2021 due to a combination of injuries and ineffectiveness. He holds a career .165/.235/.308 big-league batting line....

Mariners' Evan White: Out two months with groin strain
White is expected to be sidelined two months after suffering a Grade 2 groin strain while playing at Triple-A Toledo, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.
White has been snakebit by injuries, having missed most of the last two seasons with a hip injury and sports hernia surgery. Even when healthy, there doesn't appear to be a fit for White on the major-league club.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Optioned to Triple-A
White was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma by the Mariners on Tuesday, Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM reports.
White will head to Triple-A as expected to receive regular at-bats after missing the majority of the 2021 and 2022 seasons due to injury. The former top prospect has struggled mightily at the highest level, but his strong defense at first could make him an option for the Mariners if he stays healthy and handles Triple-A pitching....

Mariners' Evan White: Hitless in return to action
White (general soreness) started at first base and went 0-for-2 in the Mariners' 6-1 Cactus League win over the Brewers on Sunday.
White logged five innings in the field and took his last at-bat in the sixth as the Mariners eased him back into action following a two-game absence for rest. The 2017 first-round pick will continue his quest for a spot on the Opening Day roster moving forward, but he's hitting just .125 (1-for-8) across four Cactus League contests.... See More ...

Mariners' Evan White: Back in lineup
White (soreness) is hitting sixth and playing first base Sunday in Cactus League action against the Brewers.
White was scratched from the lineup Friday because of general soreness, and the Mariners gave him a couple of days to recover. The infielder is battling for a spot on the Opening Day roster, but the former top prospect is likely ticketed for Triple-A Tacoma to begin the year.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Scratched due to soreness
White was scratched from the Mariners' Cactus League lineup Friday due to general soreness, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.
Mariners general manager Justin Hollander called it a precautionary move and said it's not a huge concern. White slugged his first home run of the spring Monday in his second Cactus League game, and he'll hopefully be able to return to action over the weekend. He's trying to avoid being sent back to Triple-A Tacoma to begin the 2023 campaign, although it's tough to project him for regular playing time with Ty France at first base and Teoscar Hernandez likely to be the regular DH....

Mariners' Evan White: Ready for spring training
Mariners president of baseball operations Jerry Dipoto said Wednesday that White (hip) is as "healthy as he's ever been" heading into the start of spring training, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Though White was limited to just 107 plate appearances at Triple-A Tacoma in 2022 due to his prolonged recovery from sports hernia surgery last spring and then closed the campaign on the affiliate's 7-day injured list due to hip discomfort, the 26-year-old looks as though he won't face any restrictions when he reports to camp in Arizona. White is entering the fourth season of the six-year, $24 million deal he inked with Seattle in November 2019, but due to his poor health in recent years and his underwhelming production at the big-league level, the Mariners no longer envision him as their everyday first baseman. He'll get the chance to compete for a spot on the Opening Day roster but is most likely to begin the campaign at Tacoma unless an injury to All-Star Ty France opens up an opportunity at first base....

Mariners' Evan White: Sidelined at Triple-A
Triple-A Tacoma placed White on its 7-day injured list Sept. 10 with hip discomfort, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
White has been sidelined nearly all season after requiring sports hernia surgery in March and then experiencing hip soreness in early June while on a rehab assignment. The 26-year-old returned to action in early August and was eventually reinstated from the 60-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A after his 30-day rehab window expired. White had gone 8-for-27 with three home runs and three walks over his last seven games at Tacoma to potentially put himself in the mix for a late-season call-up to Seattle, but the renewed hip discomfort likely ends those hopes....

Mariners' Evan White: Activated, optioned to Tacoma
The Mariners reinstated White (sports hernia) from the 60-day injured list Monday and optioned him to Triple-A Tacoma.
White has been on the shelf all season while recovering from the sports hernia surgery he underwent in March. After being pulled off his previous two rehab assignments in May and June following setbacks, White resumed his assignment with Tacoma on Aug. 9 and now looks to be fully healthy again after reaching the end of his latest 20-day evaluation window. Since the Mariners don't have an everyday role available for White, he'll continue to play regularly at Tacoma, where he's produced a .197/.305/.423 slash line in 82 plate appearances between his three separate rehab assignments. White had been far more productive at the plate in his most recent games and could be a candidate to join Seattle as a bench bat in September, when the roster expands from 26 to 28 men....

Mariners' Evan White: Rehabbing again
White (sports hernia) resumed his rehab assignment at Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday and has gone 1-for-6 with a home run while playing both of the past two days.
White is restarting his rehab program for the third time, after previously being pulled off assignments in early June and then again in mid-June after suffering setbacks in his recovery from the sports hernia surgery he underwent in late March. The 2022 campaign is shaping up to be a lost season for White, and even if he remains free of setbacks moving forward, the Mariners are likely to keep him on his rehab assignment for an extended period since there isn't an opening for him to play on an everyday basis for the big club....

Mariners' Evan White: Set to resume rehab in August
White (groin) is set to resume his rehab assignment in early August, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
A setback in his recovery from sports hernia surgery has kept White off the field since the middle of June, but he took batting practice Monday and will seemingly do more work in the days ahead. Barring another issue, White should be ready to rejoin the Mariners at some point next month.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Ends assignment, timeline unknown
White (sports hernia) was pulled off his rehab assignment at Triple-A Tacoma following his last appearance June 14 and has since taking part in baseball activities back in Seattle while receiving treatment, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
White has now been pulled off his rehab assignment on two occasions this season, as he was previously shut down for two weeks before returning to action for Tacoma for one game in mid-June. Altogether, White went 3-for-27 with 11 strikeouts across his nine rehab contests, so he wasn't finding much success before he informed the Mariners that he wasn't feeling right physically. The 26-year-old has been on injured list all season and hasn't played in an MLB game since May 13, 2021, as his previous campaign was cut short when he required surgery to repair a left hip flexor strain. At this stage, the Mariners likely aren't counting on White being a major contributor in 2022 if and when he's healthy again.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Jumps back into rehab assignment
White (hip) resumed his rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday, going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in a win over Sacramento.
White had been out of game action since May 31 after suffering a reaggravation in his hip/groin area, so the infielder's return seemingly indicates he's back to full health. The 26-year-old's rehab assignment doesn't have a firm timetable for conclusion as of yet, and White could remain with the Rainiers even after activation.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Rehab shut down
White (hip), who last played in a rehab game for Triple-A Tacoma on May 31, has been sidelined due to an aggravation in his hip/groin area, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
White was riding a six-game on-base streak at the time of his apparent injury, and there's currently no timetable for him to return to action. The 26-year-old has undergone surgeries for both a left hip flexor strain and a sports hernia during the last 12 months, so his current issue is completely unsurprising but still concerning....

Mariners' Evan White: Four-game on-base streak at Tacoma
White (groin), who went 1-for-4 with an RBI single, a walk and a run in Triple-A Tacoma's loss to Las Vegas on Sunday, has reached safely in four straight games for the Rainiers.
The rehabbing infielder is still sitting on a .136 average and .406 OPS during his seven-game rehab stint with the Rainiers, but he's now reached safely in four straight and doesn't appear to have endured any physical setbacks thus far. White is carrying a bloated 30.8 percent strikeout rate during that span, however, shining a light on one of his career-long Achilles heels.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Plays six in rehab debut
White (sports hernia) started at first base and went 0-for-2 over six innings in Triple-A Tacoma's loss to Sacramento on Wednesday.
White kicked off his rehab assignment with a quiet day, but he apparently made it through his stint no worse for wear and will likely bump up to playing a full game soon. The once-promising prospect is likely to be optioned to the Rainiers once he's activated from the injured list, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Ready for rehab assignment
White (groin) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
White is finally ready for game action after he was diagnosed with a sports hernia late in spring training that required surgery March 30. Because he's been out for the better part of two months, White will likely stay on the rehab assignment for close to the full 20-day window in order to pick up at-bats and get his timing back at the plate. Once activated from the 60-day injured list, White could be viewed as a potential option for the Mariners at designated hitter, where the club has rotated a number of players this season....

Mariners' Evan White: Transferred to 60-day IL
White (groin) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
White has been on the injured list since the start of the year after undergoing surgery for a sports hernia in late March, and he'll be ineligible to return until at least early June. According to Divish, the 26-year-old is progressing in his recovery but hasn't been cleared to resume baseball activities.... See More ... See Less
