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
Mariners' Evan White: On injured list as expected
White (groin) hit the 10-day injured list Friday.
White underwent surgery for a sports hernia in late March. His recovery timeline remains unclear. The fact that he hit the 10-day injured list rather than the 60-day could indicate that the Mariners expect him healthy before early June, though the team could of course shift him to the 60-day injured list whenever they need to open a 40-man roster spot....

Mariners' Evan White: Surgery successful
White (groin) had successful sports hernia surgery and is expected to be out for the foreseeable future, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
The 26-year-old suffered the injury Thursday and was able to get surgery to correct the issue relatively quickly. White is likely to be placed on the 60-day injured list, while Ty France is now solidified as the starting first baseman for the Mariners heading into the 2022 season.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Set for surgery
White was diagnosed with a sports hernia Saturday and will undergo surgery in the near future, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
White tweaked his hip in Thursday's Cactus League game, and an MRI the following day revealed the specific issue. Though the team has not announced an official timeline for his return to the field, White will likely miss at least the first two months of the season. White was not projected to be an everyday starter for the club, but his absence should solidify Ty France as the starting first baseman in Seattle.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Undergoing MRI
White will undergo an MRI on his hip Friday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
White tweaked his surgically repaired hip during Thursday's Cactus League game against Cleveland, and his MRI should provide a better idea of the severity. If he's forced to miss any time to begin the season, Luis Torrens and Abraham Toro would likely serve as the primary backups at first base behind starter Ty France.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Tweaks hip in win
White tweaked his hip in Thursday's Cactus League matchup against the Guardians, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
White said he hurt his hip early in Thursday's matchup, and the issue bothered him more as the game progressed. The 25-year-old missed most of the 2021 campaign with a hip injury, so the Mariners will likely exercise caution before getting White back onto the field. However, the severity of the issue hasn't yet been revealed.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Removed from Thursday's game
White was removed from Thursday's Cactus League game against the Guardians with an apparent injury, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
White appeared to be hobbled while running the bases in the top of the seventh inning, and he exited the game shortly after. The nature and severity of the injury aren't yet clear.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Returns to game action
White made his Cactus League debut Tuesday against the Cubs after completing his recovery from season-ending hip flexor surgery, going 0-for-3 while starting at first base, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
While White's two groundouts and a flyout won't exactly send fantasy managers' pulses racing, it was encouraging for the 25-year-old to simply get back into game action for the first time since May 13. White won a Gold Glove award in 2020 at first base, but given Ty France's emergence there last season, the Mariners are experimenting with the former in the outfield, primarily in left, this spring. Defensive versatility may be critical for White, as he's yet to prove he can hit consistently at the big-league level (career .165/.235/.308 slash line) and manager Scott Servais will clearly prioritize keeping France's bat in the lineup. "We all know what Evan can do defensively -- I put him up against anybody in the league," Servais said. "But in our game, the bat is huge. He continues to work with our hitting guys, and he's going to continue to need to make some adjustments offensively with his swing to get the consistency that he's looking for."... See More ...

Mariners' Evan White: Appears to be at full health
White (hip) has been operating at full strength since reporting to optional workouts ahead of spring training on Friday, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
White saw his 2021 season cut short after only 30 games, logging his last action of the campaign on May 13. The 25-year-old eventually underwent hip surgery in July, which did give him a head start on his recovery. White was taking part in baseball activities by early November, so the news that he's apparently headed for a restriction-free camp isn't necessarily surprising.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Set for normal offseason
White (hip) has resumed taking part in baseball activities and is expected to have a normal offseason program, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
The 25-year-old underwent hip surgery in July and was limited to 30 games in 2021, as Ty France took over the everyday role at first base for Seattle. France is now set to open 2022 as the starting first baseman, per Divish, while White will work in left field during the offseason and spring training to try and add some versatility to his game. White had a .599 OPS in 54 games during the shortened campaign in 2020, and his main positive was his defense as he won a Gold Glove, so he'll need to produce more offensively next season to have a chance of sticking around the big-league roster....

Mariners' Evan White: Set for season-ending surgery
White (hip) will undergo surgery in the near future that will force him to miss the remainder of the season, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.
White has been sidelined since mid-May due to a hip flexor issue, and he wasn't able to make much progress in his recovery after he was removed from a rehab assignment in mid-June. It's not yet clear whether the 25-year-old's procedure will force him to miss the start of spring training in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Could miss remainder of season
General manager Jerry Dipoto said Saturday that White's hip injury is "more" ominous than the club originally thought, and that it is very possible the first baseman won't return this season, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
It was reported last week that White wasn't close to resuming baseball activities, and based on Saturday's update, it sounds like White has only regressed in recent days. While the first baseman hasn't officially been ruled out for the remainder of 2021, Dipoto's update indicates he almost certainly won't return in July. The club will continue to provide updates on White in the coming weeks.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Not close to resuming activities
White (hip) isn't close to resuming baseball activities, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
White still isn't feeling great after he received a cortisone injection Tuesday, and he's continuing to rest while he recovers from a hip flexor strain. The M's could have a better idea of the 25-year-old's return timetable once he's cleared to resume baseball activities, but it's not yet clear when that could occur.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Gets cortisone shot Tuesday
White (hip) received a cortisone injection Tuesday, the Associated Press reports.
The recovering first baseman took some time recently to determine the next steps in his recovery, and he apparently opted to go with the injection as a means to reduce inflammation and discomfort for the time being. The timeline for White's potential return to a rehab assignment at Triple-A Tacoma will likely be determined before the week is out.... See More ... See Less
