Despite hot streak Seattle Mariners Mike Zunino still struggling

The Seattle Mariners’ young catcher, Mike Zunino, saw his batting average rise on Thursday night after going 1-for-4 against the Minnesota Twins. That doesn’t sound that crazy because 1-for-4 is equal to a .250 batting average. Hitting .250 is something that a good amount of Major League players struggle to do. However, when reaching base once in four plate appearances raises...

The Mariners turned a bizarre 3-6-2 triple play

On Sunday, the Seattle Mariners turned a triple play that will go down as one of the most bizarre I’ve ever seen. Ryan Goins grounded to Mark Trumbo at first base. Trumbo stepped on the bag for the first out, and threw to shortstop Brad Miller. Kevin Pillar got in a rundown, and Miller eventually ignored Pillar and fired home to catcher Mike Zunino. Zunino then ran Ezequiel...

Mariners Series Recap: The Mariners begin their role as spoiler; Split series with the Tigers

Zunino gets a hit! The Mariners got to play a little bit of spoiler to the Tigers dimming playoff hopes this week, as they split 4 games to continue their trend of win a game, lose a game, that has been the theme of the last couple months.

Even the Tigers’ signage needs to be replaced

Vine Include the Tigers’ Comcast Xfinity sign among the items that need to be replaced sooner than later.  During Tuesday’s game, a buddy of mine detailed the Tigers’ needs going into next season: Twitter Mariners catcher Mike Zunino then broke the Xfinity sign with a foul ball in the 9th inning.  Maybe they can ask for a replacement as a throw-in in the (future) David Price trade.

Are the Seattle Mariners catcher shopping?

Jeff Todd of mlbtraderumors has been reporting today that the Seattle Mariners are actively seeking depth at catcher. Mike Zunino, the M’s current receiver, has a steady .995 Fielding Percentage in 260+ games over three seasons, but in 860+ ABs, his right-handed bat has barely broken the .200 mark. Backup Jesus Sucre has likewise been steady behind the plate, but bats no better...

Lloyd McClendon gets ejected, loses mind on umpires

Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon and catcher Mike Zunino were both ejected during Tuesday night’s Mariners-Yankees game after an appeal on a checked swing by Alex Rodriguez. McClendon then lost his damn mind and went on a ridiculous tirade directed at all four umpires. This was a bit juvenile from McClendon, but what do you expect? Seattle lost three in a row coming into...

WATCH: Lloyd McClendon has all-time meltdown

Mike Zunino’s Keeping Unusual Company

It’s a sign of the times that, when you think about Mike Zunino, you might well first think of his defense. He’s proven himself to be a tremendous receiver of pitches, and when you fold in the rest of his defensive skillset, Zunino has a lot of value, even independent of his bat. There’s evidence […]

The Associated Press Now that he's spent some time in the major leagues, Seattle Mariners catcher Mike Zunino expects big things.

Mike Zunino: 2014 Fantasy Sleeper

Here’s to hoping Zunino doesn’t follow in Jesus Montero’s footsteps. Another Mariners top hitting prospect with more buzz than Major League III: Back to the Minors, another disappointing season. Mike Zunino was the 3rd overall pick in the 2012 amateur draft and quickly climbed the ranks to become the first position player from that year’s draft class to be promoted to The...
