      Mariners' Mike Zunino: Expected to open at Triple-A

      Zunino is expected to open 2016 at Triple-A Tacoma, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports. General manager Jerry Dipoto confirmed what was widely assumed after the team acquired both Chris Iannetta and Steve Clevenger within the past nine days. Zunino fell apart last season, striking out in 34.2 percent of his plate appearances, ultimately finishing with a .174 average and a .230 OBP. Strikeouts will always be part of the package with the 24-year-old, but he will need to show some improvement with his plate discipline before getting another chance.

      Mariners C Mike Zunino snaps 22-game homerless drought

      Mariners catcher Mike Zunino belted his first home run in nearly a month on Saturday, but it wasn't enough as the Angels won the game 4-2. Zunino hit a solo home run, his eighth of the year, in the eighth inning off Garrett Richards. "He's got such a great arm. To me, you've just got to try to get on the fastball," Zunino said, per MLB.com. "That's your best chance to hit something because his slider is so good. The home run I was able to get a slider up in the zone with two strikes and really wasn't trying to do too much with it." Zunino also singled and scored earlier in the game, but his batting average still sits at a meager .169 on the season.
