MIKE ZUNINO RUMORS & GOSSIP

Let Mike Zunino show you what it’s like to catch a major league pitcher

Technology is making it easier to embrace everything where you are no longer on the other side of FOMO.

Mike Zunino Awoke From His Nightmare

Sandy Leon isn’t the best hitter in baseball, but if you set the plate-appearance minimum low enough, then he shows up as the big-league leader in wRC+. He steadfastly refuses to cool off, and so far he has saved the Red Sox behind the plate. It’s a heck of a story.

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

By TOC Locker  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...

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

By Larry Brown Lloyd McClendon was ejected from the third inning of Tuesday's Mariners-Yankees game, and the Seattle manager sure got his money's worth while being run from the contest. Upset that the umpires ruled Alex Rodriguez checked his swing and did not go on a 3-2 pitch with two outs in the top of the third, catcher Mike Zunino began hollering at first base umpire Will...

Zunino showing progress on offense - and Mariners like what they're seeing

Young Seattle Mariners catcher Mike Zunino got off to a terrible start in 2015 offensively, striking out a ton and displaying issues with bat control and selectivity as a hitter.That seems to be changing in light of some recent offensive success, including a two-home run game on Tuesday night against San Diego. As he told Shannon Drayer of ESPN Seattle, Zunino credited that recent...

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 […]

Zunino and Buck Seattle Mariners Catcher Spotlight
