Seattle Mariners’ Mitch Haniger suffers bruised knee after fouling pitch off leg

CLEVELAND — Seattle right fielder Mitch Haniger, who leads the team in home runs and RBIs, suffered a bruised left knee after fouling off a pitch in the first inning against Cleveland on Sunday.

Haniger went to the ground immediately after fouling off the pitch from Shane Bieber, and Cleveland catcher Austin Hedges waved to the Seattle dugout for help. Haniger slowly got to his feet and was assisted off the field by manager Scott Servais and a trainer.

He appeared to be putting some weight on the leg as he was helped from the dugout to the clubhouse.

Mariners manager Scott Servais said X-rays showed a deep bone bruise and Haniger will likely have more tests on Monday with the team back in Seattle.

J.P. Crawford, who singled and stole second to begin the game, had a clear view of Haniger’s at-bat.

“I just knew,” Crawford said. “It didn’t look good. I felt bad for him, but we need him. Hopefully he gets back sooner than later.”

Jake Fraley completed the at-bat with a strikeout and flied out in the second, but his two-run homer in the fourth pushed Seattle’s lead to 5-0 and the Mariners held on to defeat the Indians 6-2.

Seattle has used a major league-high 51 players this season. Haniger has 16 home runs and 40 RBIs.

Haniger made the All-Star team in 2018 when he hit .285 with 26 homers and 93 RBIs, but he has battled injuries since then. He was limited to 63 games in 2019 and didn’t play last season because of sports hernia surgery and a discectomy to resolve back pain.
