Mariners' Mike Zunino: Receives day off

Zunino is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rangers, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Since being recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on May 22, Zunino has been one of the top fantasy backstops in the game, recording seven home runs and 24 RBI in just 77 at-bats. He's still striking out 40.5 percent of the time, however, which could eventually result in his batting average trending closer to the Mendoza Line. He'll get a breather Sunday with backup Carlos Ruiz taking over behind the plate, but Zunino is worth keeping active in most leagues while he continues to sizzle at the dish.
