Mitch Haniger undergoes second surgery for core injury, 2020 timetable delayed

Another setback has beset Mitch Haniger, who underwent a second surgery Thursday that will likely extend his recovery and rehabilitation into mid-season. Per Jeff Passan of ESPN, the Mariners outfielder will have his season “significantly delayed”.

Seattle Mariners outfielder Mitch Haniger underwent surgery today -- his second procedure in three weeks after a core surgery. His timetable to return is unclear, but his 2020 season will be significantly delayed. Another unfortunate turn for the best player left on the Mariners.

Haniger confirmed the news as clearly as possible on his Instagram account, potentially woozy from the surgery still himself.
