Mariners' Mitch Haniger (groin) hoping to take batting practice this weekend

Seattle Mariners outfielder Mitch Haniger (groin) is hoping to take batting practice this weekend.

What It Means:

Haniger was just cleared this week for non-baseball activity, and he has been playing catch and taking dry swings. He has been out for nearly three weeks with a ruptured testicle. Haniger is not expected to be ready to return to action until after the All-Star break.

Haniger was batting .220 with 15 homers in 283 plate appearances before suffering the injury.
