Mariners C Zunino showing signs of breaking out of slump
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

It's too early to determine if Mariners catcher Mike Zunino has emerged from a 5-for-39 slump to start the year. After all, he's only on a two-game hitting streak.

But the home run he slammed Wednesday night against Houston was his second in the last four games, so he is optimistic.

"I think I'm starting to get some pitches to hit and starting to let myself get into some hitter's counts," he told MLB.com. "(Wednesday) I was able to get into a 3-2 count and get a pitch I could hit. I didn't try to do too much and was able to hit the ball hard."

Zunino hit the ball hard quite often last season, setting a Seattle record for catchers with 22 home runs. Power, however, has never been a problem. His efforts to improve plate coverage has been an issue, but Lloyd McClendon has noticed progress.

"It's getting better," McClendon said. "He's gaining his confidence. He had a two-strike base hit last night, which I thought was big. And tonight he had good at-bats."

Zunino still must work on making consistent contact. He has 19 strikeouts in 44 at-bats this season.

The Mariners will be without three regulars in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against Texas.

Jesus Sucre gets the start at catcher, just his second appearance of the season. He'll hit ninth in the order. 

Willie Bloomquist gets his fourth appearance of the year, starting at short and batting seventh. Justin Ruggiano will play left and bat sixth.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Mariners catcher Mike Zunino went 1 for 3 at the plate in Seattle's 3-1 win over the Rangers Saturday. Zunino did his damage in the fifth when he smacked the first pitch he saw from Colby Lewis over the left center field wall for a solo home run, his first of the year.

Zunino, who also struck out twice, boosted his average to .139 in 36 at-bats this season.

Mariners' Mike Zunino playing through wrist issue Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Mariners catcher Mike Zunino said before Wednesday's game against the Dodgers that jammed his left wrist while making a tag to end Tuesday's game, but that he's fine to play, MLB.com reports.

"It's fine," Zunino said to the News Tribune. "It was one of those freak things. I went to go tag him and not knowing where he was at. I had to get there quickly. I threw it into him, and jammed it a little bit. But it feels good."

Manager Lloyd McClendon just wants Zunino to relax more while he's at the plate.

"He's pressing a little bit right now," McClendon said. "We've got to get him to relax a little bit. Get back into the strike zone."

Zunino picked up his first multihit performance of the season Sunday but is 0 for 9 over his last two games. He has hit just .115/.179/.115 in 26 at-bats.
