Just when the Seattle Mariners were getting exited about Jesus Sucre, they may have to call up another catcher.  Sucre was caught on the hand by a backswing.  He eventually had to be removed from the game, and it turns out the injury may be more serious than initially thought. According to Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times, Sucre underwent X-rays after the game that may have revealed a more significant injury than the bruising the team initially had hoped for.  If Sucre suffered a fracture, he will almost surely hit the DL, and that will leave the Mariners in a pickle. Baker says the Mariners may be forced to bring up last year's third overall pick Mike Zunio a little bit before they were ready to do so.  He is currently playing at Triple-A, so the leap isn't all that huge, but the team wanted to let him gain some experience there first.  Brandon Bantz may be another option.  However, it's clear the team's catching options are running thin right now. Blogging for Susie Sucre was just starting to turn heads this season.  He made his Major League debut on May 24th and is hitting .192/.241/.192.  Don't let the line fool you.  Sucre has shown that he has some talent and can probably hit well given some extended experience.  Unfortunately, that extended experience may be cut short with this injury. Sucre will be evaluated further today before an official diagnosis is made.  Once that happens, the Mariners will have to quickly decide what they will do if Sucre is in fact placed on the disabled list.
