Just a few free agent singings have occurred so far this MLB offseason. With much of the market most likely waiting for Aaron Judge to sign to really kick things off, plenty of rumors have been flying ahead of next month's MLB Winter Meetings.

Mitch Haniger Free Agent Rumors

The Los Angeles Angels are one of the teams that could be seeing a major overhaul of its roster after yet another disappointing season. Seattle Mariners' free agent Mitch Haniger is one name that has been connected to the Angels, with some other teams also showing interest.

Haniger had a career year in 2021, belting 39 home runs and recording 100 RBI with a slash line of .253/.318/.485. His 2022 season was cut short big time because of injury, only appearing in 57 games.

This isn't the first time Haniger has had injury troubles, so Seattle may have decided that was too much risk, but clearly others do not when it comes to the nearly 32-year-old outfielder. If he can stay healthy, Haniger remains one of the top free-agent outfielders, but every team interested needs to take that risk into account, especially the Angels, who have had plenty of their own tough injury luck.
