Mariners Breakdown: What stands out in middle of 7-game gauntlet

The 29-year-old Haggerty was injured while playing center field for Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday. He was chasing a deep fly on the warning track when he crashed into the wall and fell to the ground in pain.

Haggerty appeared in eight games for Seattle between April 29 and May 14, going 1-for-15 at the plate with a stolen base. He spent the rest of the season in Tacoma, where he slashed .310/.388/.338 with two doubles and seven steals in 19 games. He began his season on the 10-day injured list after undergoing an unspecified medical procedure.

Haggerty has appeared in 191 games with the Mariners over the past five seasons, primarily as a utility player. His best season was in 2022, when he hit .256/.335/.403 with five home runs, one triple, nine doubles and 13 steals in 83 games.

Seattle Mariners get J.P. Crawford back

Shortstop J.P. Crawford is finally back from the 10-day injured list, as Seattle activated him just prior to Monday’s opener in New York against the Yankees. Infielder Leo Rivas was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma to make room for Crawford on the active roster.

The 29-year-old Crawford initially hit the IL late last month with an oblique injury. He was set to return earlier on Seattle’s current road trip, but he was hit by a pitch on his right hand during his second game on a rehab assignment with Tacoma last Wednesday, delaying his return by a few days.

Crawford, who hit a career-high 19 home runs last season and has two in 22 games this year, was not in the initial lineup Monday could be a valuable bat off the bench with the short porch in right field at Yankee Stadium.

Highly ranked M’s prospect injured

Mariners prospect Colt Emerson suffered a small fracture when he fouled a ball off his foot last week, according to MLB.com’s Daniel Kramer. The club expects Emerson to be sidelined four to six weeks.

Emerson is ranked by Baseball America as the No. 2 prospect in the Mariners’ organization. MLB.com ranks him as Seattle’s No. 3 prospect.

Emerson, an 18-year-old shortstop, was drafted out of high school as the No. 22 overall pick last summer. He was slashing .271/.441/.414 with two homers, four doubles and three steals in 19 games at Low-A Modesto this season before getting injured.

The Mariners continue their 10-game road trip on Monday with a 4:05 p.m. series opener at Yankee Stadium. Mariners Radio Network coverage begins at 3 p.m. with the pregame show on Seattle Sports 710 AM, the Seattle Sports app and SeattleSports.com.
