Haggerty (elbow) remains a candidate for one of the two projected final Opening Day roster spots, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Haggerty was still sidelined by elbow soreness when spring training was suspended, but the time off he's currently receiving will likely help him return to full health before play resumes. The 25-year-old had acquitted himself very well prior to being sidelined, hitting .357 (5-for-14) with three doubles, two RBI and one run across eight Cactus League games. Haggerty is capable of playing both second base and the outfield and is competing with Tim Lopes, Jose Marmolejos and Dylan Moore for one of the aforementioned spots.
Haggerty is dealing with elbow soreness and is currently sitting out of game action as he awaits a second opinion, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
The 25-year-old was claimed off waivers by the Mariners back in January and is competing for a bench role this spring. Haggerty hasn't seen game action since Thursday, but he's made a strong impression thus far -- the infielder is hitting .357 (5-for-14) with three doubles, two RBI and one run across eight Cactus League contests. Haggerty has just four plate appearances worth of major-league regular-season experience, which came across 11 games with the Mets last season.
Haggerty was claimed off waivers by the Mariners on Friday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
He was cut loose by the Mets earlier in the week. Haggerty will compete in spring training for a bench role with the rebuilding Mariners. Seattle's 40-man roster is now full.
Haggerty was released by the Mets on Wednesday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.
Haggerty was designated for assignment when the Mets signed Dellin Betances (Achilles) in late December. Haggerty got into the first 11 big-league games of his career last season but went hitless with three strikeouts in his four trips to the plate.
Haggerty was designated for assignment by the Mets on Tuesday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.
The 25-year-old made his major-league debut in September, but he went 0-for-4 with two runs as he appeared in 11 games. Haggerty was effective in the minors last year, hitting .271/.376/.387 with three home runs and 23 stolen bases, so it's certainly possible that another team could pick him up off waivers. Dellin Betances (Achilles) took Haggerty's place on the 40-man roster.
Haggerty had his contract selected from Triple-A Syracuse by the Mets on Sunday.
Haggerty was acquired by the Mets from the Indians in January and spent the bulk of the year at Double-A Binghamton before being promoted to Triple-A Syracuse in mid-August. The 25-year-old had a .271/.376/.387 slash line with 23 stolen bases between the two levels and is primed to make his major-league debut.
Haggerty was traded from the Indians to the Mets with pitcher Walker Lockett for Kevin Plawecki on Sunday.
Haggerty's offensive profile leaves something to be desired: He hasn't hit north of .253 since 2015, when he was in short-season ball. However, he takes walks at a good rate and has experience playing all over the field. He could be a reserve utility player for the Mets in the future if he can become a bit more competent at the plate.
Haggerty (undisclosed) was activatedfrom the minor-league 7-day disabled list Sunday.
Haggerty will return to the Double-A Akron roster after a month-long absence. The infielder held a .188 average through 40 plate appearances prior to his placement on the DL.
Haggerty stole his league-leading 36th base in Wednesday's game with High-A Lynchburg, The News-Herald reports.
Not only does the second baseman lead the Carolina League in steals, Haggerty's league-leading 12 triples give him the most extra-base hits (38) among the group, too. Furthermore, the 23-year-old leads all Indians minor leaguers in doubles (24), runs (55) and ranks third in walks (50). Haggerty's .805 OPS and excellent speed should land him on dynasty radars in 2018.
