Injury Update On San Francisco Giants $43 Million Offseason Investment

San Francisco Giants outfielder Mitch Haniger has been out of action, and has yet to make his Giants' debut, due to several injuries.

He suffered a Grade 1 left oblique strain about a month ago and had been preparing to hit off a tee until he experienced back tightness. His expected return date was delayed by a week due to this issue. However, he is still far from being able to play in a game or start a rehab assignment.

The Giants signed Haniger to a three-year, $43.5 million contract this offseason.

Unfortunately, his injury woes have continued, as previously mentioned, he recently suffered a Grade 1 hamstring strain, which will further delay his return to the field.

Despite this, Haniger is gradually making progress in his recovery, and he is currently preparing to hit off a tee once again. Giants manager Gabe Kapler has stated that Haniger should be ready to return during the team's road trip from April 14-19.

It's worth noting that Haniger has struggled with injuries throughout his career, and the Giants will be hoping that he can make a full recovery soon.

Over the last two seasons, the 32-year-old posted a .251/.316/.470 triple-slash line, with 50 home runs, 134 RBIs, and 141 runs scored across 214 games played. Photo Credit:  Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports
