Description: Mariners catcher Mike Zunino went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Wednesday against Texas.
Insight: Zunino was just two for his previous 28 (.071) with 15 strikeouts. He's hit 19 homers this season, but with a .205 average, 48 RBI, 46 runs and a .680 OPS he is an AL-only option at best.
 
8/20/2014 12:55:00 PM
Description: Mariners catcher Mike Zunino is not in the lineup Wednesday.
Insight: Zunino has batted under .200 in three of the five months this season, including August. He has 18 homers, 47 RBI and 45 runs but just a .210 average and .686 OPS.
 
8/6/2014 1:08:00 PM
Description: Mariners catcher Mike Zunino will take a seat Wednesday.
Insight: Zunino has 17 bombs this season, but he's hitting .210 with a horrific 112/11 K/BB. He should be back in the lineup Thursday.
 
8/2/2014 3:08:00 PM
Description: Mariners catcher Mike Zunino is not in Saturday's starting lineup versus Baltimore.

7/27/2014 7:36:00 PM

Insight: Zunino has hit 15 homers this season, but he's batting just .209 with 37 RBI, 36 runs and a .677 OPS. Catcher is a weak fantasy position, but you can probably do better.
 
7/26/2014 1:30:00 PM
Description: Mariners catcher Mike Zunino is not in Saturday afternoon's starting lineup.
Insight: Just a routine day off after a night game. Zunino isn't batting for a high average (.202), but has knocked out 14 homers with 36 RBI this season.
 
7/6/2014 11:08:00 AM
Description: Mariners catcher Mike Zunino is not in Sunday afternoon's starting lineup.

6/21/2014 12:17:00 PM
Description: Mariners catcher Mike Zunino is not in Saturday afternoon's starting lineup.
Insight: Zunino isn't producing much for fantasy owners, batting .220, but he does have eight homers and 23 RBI. John Buck will get the start behind the plate and is equally mediocre.
 
4/30/2014 9:57:00 AM
Description: M's catcher Mike Zunino belted four hits in Tuesday's win against the Yankees.
Insight: It's his first career four-hit game. Zunino's first month of the season has been a bit of a mixed bag. He's hitting a respectable .274 with 11 RBI but his strikeout rate is still way too high (22 K's in 73 at bats). Catcher isn't a deep position but fantasy owners can do better.
 
7/26/2013 8:53:00 PM
Description: Mariners catcher Mike Zunino has been placed on the disabled list.
Insight: Zunino was hit by a foul tip Thursday against Minnesota and ended up breaking his hand on the play. He's expected to miss at least six weeks, which would sideline him until the middle of September. For now, Henry Blanco will see most of the playing time behind the plate.
 
6/11/2013 2:54:00 PM
Description: Seattle catching prospect Mike Zunino has gotten the call, according to Larry Stone of the Seattle Times. He's the top player in their minor league system and rated No.17 by Baseball America in their February Top-100 Prospects list.
Insight: Zunino had 11 HR and 41 RBI in 40 games through the end of May, but June has been a struggle. Long-term he's got nice fantasy potential, but finding your swing at the big league level is difficult. It might have been better if they had brought him up in May while he was still hot.
 
Hot4/9/2013 12:39:00 PM
Description: Seattle minor league catching prospect Mike Zunino is making the most of his time with the Triple-A Tacoma Rainiers. He's batting .500 with three homers, 12 RBI and a 1.901 OPS in the team's first four games.
Insight: He's the top player in their minor league system and rated No.17 by Baseball America in their February Top-100 Prospects list. His ability to reach the majors this season is blocked by Jesus Montero behind the plate and Kendrys Morales at DH, but if he continues to hit this well he may force his way up to the big club by midseason.
