SEATTLE — Sunday marks one year since Mariners' outfielder Mitch Haniger was hit in the face by a 95 mile-per-hour fastball in a game against the New York Mets.

Haniger suffered a mild concussion, a small nasal fracture and severe swelling in his lip at the time but returned to the team on Aug. 19, 2017.

Haniger went on to make his first All-Star appearance in 2018 and heading into Sunday's series finale against the Angels is batting .261 with 18 home runs, 68 runs-batted-in, and a .355 on-base-percentage.
