Haniger went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a win over Cleveland on Friday.
Haniger batted second and served as the team's designated hitter in the contest. He connected on a two-run shot to center field in the seventh inning for Seattle's final runs of the game. After missing all of last season, Haniger has stormed out to a productive beginning to 2021 -- he is currently tied for second place in baseball with 11 home runs and ranks in the top 10 with 29 RBI.

Haniger put Seattle on the board with a solo shot off Walker Buehler in the first inning, then took Buehler deep again in the sixth.

Haniger has multiple punchouts in three of the last four games overall as his strikeout rate has crept up to 24.8 percent.

Additionally, with eight home runs over his first 33 games, Haniger is on pace to comfortably exceed the career-high 26 round trippers he belted in 2018.

Haniger went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a double in Saturday's victory over the Giants.
Haniger put the exclamation point on the Mariners' win with a seventh-inning solo shot to provide a four-run cushion.

Making his first appearance in a regular-season game since June 6, 2019, Haniger heads into Opening Day healthy after spending the past season and a half in recovery from a sports hernia surgery and a microdiscectomy. The latter procedure in particular warrants some justifiable concern about Haniger's durability over a 162-game schedule, but while he's available, he's expected to serve as Seattle's full-time leadoff hitter. The 30-year-old showed little rust during the Cactus League slate, posting an .818 OPS over 47 at-bats.
