Seattle Mariners Mitch Haniger to miss significant time

After surgery to correct another core injury a few weeks back, Jeff Passan of ESPN is reporting that Mariners outfielder Mitch Haniger had yet another surgery to repair a sports hernia. This was Haniger’s second core surgery in 3 weeks.

The exact time table for Haniger’s return is expected to be “significantly delayed” for the 2020 season. The Mariners were already preparing to be without Haniger for most, if not all, of April, but will now be without Haniger for much longer.

Seattle recently signed Carlos Gonzalez to a minor league deal and returning players Mallex Smith, Kyle Lewis, Braden Bishop, and Jake Fraley, are expected to compete for playing time this spring.
