The Seattle Mariners are open to trading outfielder Mitch Haniger, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.

Haniger was considered one of the team's "untouchables" last offseason along with starting pitcher Marco Gonzales. However, their stance has changed when it comes to the former as he continues to draw interest from other teams, Rosenthal adds.

The 28-year-old was sidelined for the entire second half of the 2019 season after suffering a ruptured testicle in June but is expected to be ready for spring training. He hit .220/.314/.463 with 15 homers and four stolen bases in 63 games.

Haniger is entering his first winter of arbitration eligibility and is projected to earn $3 million next year, according to MLB Trade Rumors. The one-time All-Star is under team control through the 2022 season.
