MIKE ZUNINO RUMORS & GOSSIP

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...

SSU Baseball Recap: San Diego Padres 4, Seattle Mariners 11

Two of the things that stand out the most, from what I learned about pitching from Jaime Moyer’s biography, was what to look for when judging a pitcher’s current mental state and what they may or may not be possible of doing going forward.  Today, a mild May evening in the Emerald City, James Paxton took a 4-0 lead into the top of the 2nd and proceeded to walk the bases loaded...

SSU Baseball Recap: Seattle Mariners 4, Los Angeles Angels 5

When Mike Zunino gets on one of his “I’m only producing strikeouts” tears, it can be difficult to watch his at-bats.  There was however, a bright side to his approach that we call pull from tonight’s 4-5 loss. During his 3rd at-bat tonight during the 8th inning, he took a ball on the outside part of the plate. But he didn’t just take a ball, he looked down at the ground...

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 […]

Catchers and Trust with a Runner on Third

Watch a Seattle Mariners game when Mike Zunino‘s behind the plate and, eventually, there’ll probably be a runner on third. At that point, a wild pitch or a passed ball brings in a run, but you might still see something breaking, thrown in the dirt. Then you’ll hear about how much trust the pitcher must have […]

Zunino and Buck Seattle Mariners Catcher Spotlight

Can the wiley old vet help out the rook? I find that the catching story of the 2014 Seattle Mariners might be one of the most interesting yet most under-reported stories of the upcoming MLB season. Then again, maybe I’m just a former catcher trying to glorify the toughest position to play in baseball.   Either way, here’s a look at the two backstops the M’s will deploy behind...

Zunino ready to become Mariners everyday catcher

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

''It makes the transition going into this year a little bit easier...
