Mariners' Mike Zunino: Headed to Modesto for rehab stint

Zunino (oblique) will head to High-A Modesto to begin a 2-to-3-game rehab stint Monday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Zunino heading to Modesto is merely for logistical reasons, as the Nuts will be at home for the entirety of his projected rehab stint. The team plans for Zunino to catch 5-to-6 innings in the first game, serve as the designated hitter in the second and catch a full nine innings in the final contest. Should everything play out as planned, Zunino would be activated by the Mariners later in the week. In the fantasy realm, Zunino can provide power numbers, but the career .209 hitter is typically a batting-average drain. Last season was the lone exception, as Zunino managed a .251 mark across 124 games.
