The San Francisco Giants have a timeline for when outfielder Mitch Haniger will return from a fractured forearm.

Haniger left the Giants’ June 13 win over the St. Louis Cardinals early after being hit by an 88-mile-per-hour pitch. Shortly after, the team announced he was diagnosed with a right forearm fracture.

The Giants provided another update over the weekend, saying Mitch Haniger underwent successful surgery and is expected to return in 10 weeks.

This is his second stint on the injured list this season. Haniger missed the first 21 games of the 2023 season with an oblique strain.

Haniger, a Mountain View native, signed a three-year, $43.5 million contract with the Giants this past offseason that includes an opt-out clause after the 2024 season.

Through 40 games with San Francisco, the 32-year-old outfielder is batting .230 with a .653 OPS and four home runs.

Additional San Francisco Giants injury news

The Giants have to worry about another shot to the forearm. In Sunday’s win over the Los Angeles Dodgers, infielder Casey Schmitt took a 95.8 mph pitch to his forearm in the eighth inning. Schmitt got X-rays after the game, which came back negative. According to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, Schmitt is expected to be considered day-to-day.
