Mariners | Mike Zunino to work with Edgar Martinez

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 17:39:17 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Mike Zunino has been identified as one of new hitting coach Edgar Martinez's top priorities, according to manager Lloyd McClendon. Zunino is hitting .158 this season with a .231 on-base percentage and is on pace to finish the year with 16 home runs and 36 RBIs.

Fantasy Tip: Zunino ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has been one of the worst-hitting catchers in baseball over the last two seasons. In 2014, he hit an abysmal .199 with a .254 on-base percentage, 22 home runs and 60 RBIs. Avoid him in FantasyScore for the foreseeable future.

Mariners | Mike Zunino continues to struggle

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 17:26:06 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Mike Zunino is hitting just .073 in June, with four singles and zero extra-base hits, entering Tuesday, June 23, against the Kansas City Royals. Manager Lloyd McClendon said the issue is partly mental and partly due to the fact that Zunino's hands are dropping and coming out in front of the ball.

Fantasy Tip: Zunino ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) shouldn't be owned on FantasyScore until he starts trending in the opposite direction.

Mariners | Welington Castillo starting Tuesday

Tue, 26 May 2015 15:30:22 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Welington Castillo is starting behind the plate and batting seventh in the order Tuesday, May 26, against the Tampa Bay Rays. C Mike Zunino will be available off the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) had a hit and a run scored in each of his first two games as a member of the Mariners before going 0-for-4 Sunday, May 24. Castillo is hitting for an average of just .152 against righties, and he shouldn't be considered against Rays RHP Alex Colome.

Mariners | Mike Zunino has career night

Tue, 12 May 2015 23:28:17 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Mike Zunino had three hits, including the second multi-homer game of his career, on Tuesday, May 12, as the Mariners scored an 11-4 win over the San Diego Padres.

Fantasy Tip: Zunino ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) was hitting .159 going into this game, and he was facing Ian Kennedy, one of the Padres pitchers that has been uneven this season. Zunino is still a hitter you should sit in a lot of situations, as he is struggling.

Mariners | Mike Zunino back in lineup

Sat, 02 May 2015 14:59:57 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Mike Zunino is back in the lineup Saturday, May 2, against the Houston Astros.

Fantasy Tip: Zunino ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) was given the day off Friday as Jesus Sucre filled in behind the plate. Zunino remains the Mariners No. 1 catcher, despite his struggles at the plate. Zunino is hitting just .129 but does have two home runs, but he should be avoided on FantasyScore as he continues to bat in the bottom-third of the order.

Mariners | Mike Zunino resting Friday

Fri, 01 May 2015 14:26:38 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Mike Zunino is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 1. C Jesus Sucre is catching and hitting ninth in the batting order against Houston Astros SP Samuel Deduno.

Fantasy Tip: Zunino is taking a day off while starting .129 (8-for-62) on the season. It'd be wise to bench Zunino or look for a catching replacement for him while he's struggling in standard leagues. Sucre ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitless in just seven at-bats this year and makes for a weak FantasyScore catcher tonight.

Mariners | Mike Zunino won't be demoted

Fri, 01 May 2015 13:29:33 -0700

Seattle Mariners C Mike Zunino is not in danger of being demoted to the minors to work on things, in the opinion of The Tacoma News Tribune's Bob Dutton.

Fantasy Tip: Zunino ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is off to a rough start in 2015, hitting just .129 (8-for-62) with two home runs and three RBI. Zunino isn't this bad, though, so you'll have to stay patient in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Fortunately for daily gamers, you can avoid him until he starts to turn things around. Against Houston Astros starter Samuel Deduno Friday, Zunino will be a cheap sleeper if you're willing to roll the dice.
