Mariners' Evan White: Ready for spring training
Mariners president of baseball operations Jerry Dipoto said Wednesday that White (hip) is as "healthy as he's ever been" heading into the start of spring training, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Though White was limited to just 107 plate appearances at Triple-A Tacoma in 2022 due to his prolonged recovery from sports hernia surgery last spring and then closed the campaign on the affiliate's 7-day injured list due to hip discomfort, the 26-year-old looks as though he won't face any restrictions when he reports to camp in Arizona. White is entering the fourth season of the six-year, $24 million deal he inked with Seattle in November 2019, but due to his poor health in recent years and his underwhelming production at the big-league level, the Mariners no longer envision him as their everyday first baseman. He'll get the chance to compete for a spot on the Opening Day roster but is most likely to begin the campaign at Tacoma unless an injury to All-Star Ty France opens up an opportunity at first base....

Mariners' Evan White: Sidelined at Triple-A
Triple-A Tacoma placed White on its 7-day injured list Sept. 10 with hip discomfort, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
White has been sidelined nearly all season after requiring sports hernia surgery in March and then experiencing hip soreness in early June while on a rehab assignment. The 26-year-old returned to action in early August and was eventually reinstated from the 60-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A after his 30-day rehab window expired. White had gone 8-for-27 with three home runs and three walks over his last seven games at Tacoma to potentially put himself in the mix for a late-season call-up to Seattle, but the renewed hip discomfort likely ends those hopes....

Mariners' Evan White: Activated, optioned to Tacoma
The Mariners reinstated White (sports hernia) from the 60-day injured list Monday and optioned him to Triple-A Tacoma.
White has been on the shelf all season while recovering from the sports hernia surgery he underwent in March. After being pulled off his previous two rehab assignments in May and June following setbacks, White resumed his assignment with Tacoma on Aug. 9 and now looks to be fully healthy again after reaching the end of his latest 20-day evaluation window. Since the Mariners don't have an everyday role available for White, he'll continue to play regularly at Tacoma, where he's produced a .197/.305/.423 slash line in 82 plate appearances between his three separate rehab assignments. White had been far more productive at the plate in his most recent games and could be a candidate to join Seattle as a bench bat in September, when the roster expands from 26 to 28 men....

Mariners' Evan White: Rehabbing again
White (sports hernia) resumed his rehab assignment at Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday and has gone 1-for-6 with a home run while playing both of the past two days.
White is restarting his rehab program for the third time, after previously being pulled off assignments in early June and then again in mid-June after suffering setbacks in his recovery from the sports hernia surgery he underwent in late March. The 2022 campaign is shaping up to be a lost season for White, and even if he remains free of setbacks moving forward, the Mariners are likely to keep him on his rehab assignment for an extended period since there isn't an opening for him to play on an everyday basis for the big club....

Mariners' Evan White: Set to resume rehab in August
White (groin) is set to resume his rehab assignment in early August, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
A setback in his recovery from sports hernia surgery has kept White off the field since the middle of June, but he took batting practice Monday and will seemingly do more work in the days ahead. Barring another issue, White should be ready to rejoin the Mariners at some point next month.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Ends assignment, timeline unknown
White (sports hernia) was pulled off his rehab assignment at Triple-A Tacoma following his last appearance June 14 and has since taking part in baseball activities back in Seattle while receiving treatment, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
White has now been pulled off his rehab assignment on two occasions this season, as he was previously shut down for two weeks before returning to action for Tacoma for one game in mid-June. Altogether, White went 3-for-27 with 11 strikeouts across his nine rehab contests, so he wasn't finding much success before he informed the Mariners that he wasn't feeling right physically. The 26-year-old has been on injured list all season and hasn't played in an MLB game since May 13, 2021, as his previous campaign was cut short when he required surgery to repair a left hip flexor strain. At this stage, the Mariners likely aren't counting on White being a major contributor in 2022 if and when he's healthy again.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Jumps back into rehab assignment
White (hip) resumed his rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday, going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in a win over Sacramento.
White had been out of game action since May 31 after suffering a reaggravation in his hip/groin area, so the infielder's return seemingly indicates he's back to full health. The 26-year-old's rehab assignment doesn't have a firm timetable for conclusion as of yet, and White could remain with the Rainiers even after activation.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Rehab shut down
White (hip), who last played in a rehab game for Triple-A Tacoma on May 31, has been sidelined due to an aggravation in his hip/groin area, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
White was riding a six-game on-base streak at the time of his apparent injury, and there's currently no timetable for him to return to action. The 26-year-old has undergone surgeries for both a left hip flexor strain and a sports hernia during the last 12 months, so his current issue is completely unsurprising but still concerning....

Mariners' Evan White: Four-game on-base streak at Tacoma
White (groin), who went 1-for-4 with an RBI single, a walk and a run in Triple-A Tacoma's loss to Las Vegas on Sunday, has reached safely in four straight games for the Rainiers.
The rehabbing infielder is still sitting on a .136 average and .406 OPS during his seven-game rehab stint with the Rainiers, but he's now reached safely in four straight and doesn't appear to have endured any physical setbacks thus far. White is carrying a bloated 30.8 percent strikeout rate during that span, however, shining a light on one of his career-long Achilles heels.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Plays six in rehab debut
White (sports hernia) started at first base and went 0-for-2 over six innings in Triple-A Tacoma's loss to Sacramento on Wednesday.
White kicked off his rehab assignment with a quiet day, but he apparently made it through his stint no worse for wear and will likely bump up to playing a full game soon. The once-promising prospect is likely to be optioned to the Rainiers once he's activated from the injured list, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Ready for rehab assignment
White (groin) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
White is finally ready for game action after he was diagnosed with a sports hernia late in spring training that required surgery March 30. Because he's been out for the better part of two months, White will likely stay on the rehab assignment for close to the full 20-day window in order to pick up at-bats and get his timing back at the plate. Once activated from the 60-day injured list, White could be viewed as a potential option for the Mariners at designated hitter, where the club has rotated a number of players this season....

Mariners' Evan White: Transferred to 60-day IL
White (groin) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
White has been on the injured list since the start of the year after undergoing surgery for a sports hernia in late March, and he'll be ineligible to return until at least early June. According to Divish, the 26-year-old is progressing in his recovery but hasn't been cleared to resume baseball activities.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: On injured list as expected
White (groin) hit the 10-day injured list Friday.
White underwent surgery for a sports hernia in late March. His recovery timeline remains unclear. The fact that he hit the 10-day injured list rather than the 60-day could indicate that the Mariners expect him healthy before early June, though the team could of course shift him to the 60-day injured list whenever they need to open a 40-man roster spot....

Mariners' Evan White: Surgery successful
White (groin) had successful sports hernia surgery and is expected to be out for the foreseeable future, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
The 26-year-old suffered the injury Thursday and was able to get surgery to correct the issue relatively quickly. White is likely to be placed on the 60-day injured list, while Ty France is now solidified as the starting first baseman for the Mariners heading into the 2022 season.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Set for surgery
White was diagnosed with a sports hernia Saturday and will undergo surgery in the near future, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
White tweaked his hip in Thursday's Cactus League game, and an MRI the following day revealed the specific issue. Though the team has not announced an official timeline for his return to the field, White will likely miss at least the first two months of the season. White was not projected to be an everyday starter for the club, but his absence should solidify Ty France as the starting first baseman in Seattle.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Undergoing MRI
White will undergo an MRI on his hip Friday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
White tweaked his surgically repaired hip during Thursday's Cactus League game against Cleveland, and his MRI should provide a better idea of the severity. If he's forced to miss any time to begin the season, Luis Torrens and Abraham Toro would likely serve as the primary backups at first base behind starter Ty France.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Tweaks hip in win
White tweaked his hip in Thursday's Cactus League matchup against the Guardians, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
White said he hurt his hip early in Thursday's matchup, and the issue bothered him more as the game progressed. The 25-year-old missed most of the 2021 campaign with a hip injury, so the Mariners will likely exercise caution before getting White back onto the field. However, the severity of the issue hasn't yet been revealed.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Removed from Thursday's game
White was removed from Thursday's Cactus League game against the Guardians with an apparent injury, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
White appeared to be hobbled while running the bases in the top of the seventh inning, and he exited the game shortly after. The nature and severity of the injury aren't yet clear.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Evan White: Returns to game action
White made his Cactus League debut Tuesday against the Cubs after completing his recovery from season-ending hip flexor surgery, going 0-for-3 while starting at first base, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
While White's two groundouts and a flyout won't exactly send fantasy managers' pulses racing, it was encouraging for the 25-year-old to simply get back into game action for the first time since May 13. White won a Gold Glove award in 2020 at first base, but given Ty France's emergence there last season, the Mariners are experimenting with the former in the outfield, primarily in left, this spring. Defensive versatility may be critical for White, as he's yet to prove he can hit consistently at the big-league level (career .165/.235/.308 slash line) and manager Scott Servais will clearly prioritize keeping France's bat in the lineup. "We all know what Evan can do defensively -- I put him up against anybody in the league," Servais said. "But in our game, the bat is huge. He continues to work with our hitting guys, and he's going to continue to need to make some adjustments offensively with his swing to get the consistency that he's looking for."... See More ...

Mariners' Evan White: Appears to be at full health
White (hip) has been operating at full strength since reporting to optional workouts ahead of spring training on Friday, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
White saw his 2021 season cut short after only 30 games, logging his last action of the campaign on May 13. The 25-year-old eventually underwent hip surgery in July, which did give him a head start on his recovery. White was taking part in baseball activities by early November, so the news that he's apparently headed for a restriction-free camp isn't necessarily surprising.... See More ... See Less
