Seattle Mariners
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Haggerty began the season with Triple-A Tacoma, but strong play earned him a spot back on the 40-man roster and a few first half big league stints. Haggerty was called up for good in late June, playing through some nagging injuries including forehead, shoulder, finger and groin issues. Working mostly in a utility capacity, but also starting from some stretches, Haggerty posted a career-best .738 OPS. His biggest fantasy contribution was 13 steals in 14 attempts. Haggerty's 26.4% strikeout rate is too high for a player with a below average exit velocity and Hard Hit rate. Haggerty's defensive flexibility and speed should keep him on the Mariners as a reserve, but he'd be exposed with regular playing. Read Past Outlooks

Unlikely to return for playoffs

October 4, 2022
Haggerty (groin), who was placed on the 10-day injured list earlier Tuesday, isn't expected to be available to return during the Mariners' upcoming postseason run, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
ANALYSIS
Haggerty was diagnosed with what appears to be a fairly significant left groin strain after he exited Monday's loss to the Tigers with the injury. He was spotted walking around in the clubhouse Tuesday with the assistance of crutches, but the Mariners anticipate that Haggerty will avoid surgery to address the injury. The 28-year-old closes the 2022 campaign with a .256/.335/.403 slash line to go with five home runs and 13 stolen bases over 201 plate appearances.

2021 Fantasy Outlook
A 24th-round pick by Cleveland in 2015, Haggerty was shipped to the Mets in January of 2019 and finally got his first call-up that September. However, he did not get much of a look -- Haggerty appeared in 11 games in 2019 but only logged four PA -- and he was eventually designated for assignment, landing with the Mariners via a waiver claim. Haggerty began 2020 at the alternate site and had to wait until Aug. 16 for a promotion. Haggerty showed off his speed with two steals in his first game in a Mariners uniform, but his performance was predictably trending south when he was placed on the injured list Sept. 7 with a left forearm strain, ending his season. For now, Haggerty remains on the 40-man roster. At close to 27, he looks likely to max out as a utility player.
