RotoWire News: Haniger, who's now slashing .406/.472/.719 over 32 spring at-bats, is drawing high praise from manager Scott Servais, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. "His approach and how he goes about his business, he's as prepared as any young player I've seen in a long time," Servais said. "He's very disciplined, when he goes to the cage, how he takes his batting practice, what he does in his pregame. It's paying off." (3/14/2017)

Profile: Mitch Haniger wasn't the highest profile player in the five-player swap between Arizona and Seattle early in the offseason, but he's an intriguing piece in the Seattle outfield moving forward. He was nothing short of dominant at the Triple-A level, with a 12.5% walk rate and .330 isolated power that went along with a .428 on-base percentage. That combination of power and on-base skills seemed to be consistent across the minor league ranks, even if there were only flashes of it with the Diamondbacks in 2016. His strikeout rate was a touch higher and walk rate a bit lower in his first exposure to the level. He did hit into a lot of bad luck, with a .256 batting average on balls in play, despite a high rate of hard contact. That major league stint also featured an isolated power of .174, an encouraging figure even if he only reached base at a .308 clip. Nonetheless, the power potential is there. There's also a small bit of upside on the base paths, with 12 swipes between Double-A and Triple-A in 2016. He probably presents more offensive upside than many of the other outfield options in Seattle with that combination of power and approach. As such, that's definitely a situation worth monitoring as the team moves closer into the spring. (Randy Holt)

The Quick Opinion: After dominating a pair of minor league levels in 2016, Mitch Haniger made his first major league appearance in 2016. While he ran into some bad luck, between the power and on-base skills he demonstrated across his minor league career, he should be in good shape, and receive an opportunity to contribute early in 2017.
