Mitch Haniger, the Seattle Mariners outfielder, underwent surgery on Friday after a foul on the groin resulted in a testicular fracture.
Team manager Scott Servais announced that Haniger was placed on the list of 10-day injuries after a serious injury on Thursday's game against the Houston Astros. He had no schedule for Haniger's recovery, but said he "can not imagine that he will do anything for a few weeks."

The one-year outfielder sustained the unusual injury during the third innings when a soiled fastball by Justin Verlander Haniger seemed to hit right into the groin.
He was seen tipping over before he tried to get up with his bat for help until the 7th inning in the game.
The Mariners lost the game on Thursday night, but the bigger loss was possibly the number of players added to their growing casualty list.

Eleven players are currently on the list of injured, including Haniger. Braden Bishop ended up on the list of injured because he suffered a splenic rupture in a blow to the minors. Bishop was operated on to repair his spleen from a local hospital. 1
