    • Iannetta will serve as the Mariners' designated hitter and bat second in the order Sunday against the Blue Jays. Nelson Cruz is usually the Mariners' preferred DH option, but he'll move over to the outfield with Seth Smith getting the day off against Blue Jays lefty J.A. Happ, enabling Iannetta to stay in the lineup while not having to catch. Iannetta, who typically hits in the bottom third of the Mariners' lineup, will climb the ranks due to the matchup with Happ, but it's unlikely he remains in that spot beyond Sunday. In fact, Iannetta's fantasy value seems more likely to fall going forward, given that manager Scott Servais has recently committed to starting recent call-up Mike Zunino at catcher on at least a semi-regular basis.

    • Mariners' Chris Iannetta: Out of Sunday's lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Iannetta is out of the lineup Sunday against the Astros. The Mariners will curiously hold Iannetta out for the second game in a row, but he still seems to have a steady hold on the top catching duties for the club over Jesus Sucre. Iannetta has a paltry .215 average and seven homers across 267 plate appearances this season, but he's been a more respectable second catcher in OBP legaues, thanks to his .305 on-base percentage.

    • Mariners' Chris Iannetta: Out of Monday's lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Iannetta is out of the lineup Monday against the Astros, Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. For the second time in three days, Iannetta will give way to Mike Zunino, who was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma to replace Steve Clevenger (hand) as the backup catcher. Zunino boasts impressive power and is solid defensively, but career-long contact issues have hindered his development. However, Zunino had an excellent season debut Saturday, going 2-for-4 with a pair of homers and three RBI, so he'll get another opportunity to start ahead of Iannetta. It's likely that Iannetta's superior on-base skills will result in him seeing the majority of the starts at catcher, but Zunino carries the higher upside of the two backstops.
