Rays' Mike Zunino: Sits against righty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zunino is not starting Saturday's game against the Red Sox.

The veteran takes a seat after going 1-for-4 on Friday and snapping a nine-game streak without a home run. Switch-hitting Francisco Mejia will start behind the dish with Nathan Eovaldi pitching for Boston.

Rays' Mike Zunino: Reaches 20-homer mark
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zunino went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 7-3 win over Boston.

With his fourth-inning blast, Zunino achieved his fourth 20-homer season in nine major-league campaigns. The power-hitting catcher is batting just .194 on the year, but he's slugging .512 with 39 RBI and 37 runs scored through 242 plate appearances. He also struck out three times Friday, raising his strikeout rate to 36.8 percent.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zunino isn't starting Wednesday against the Yankees, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Zunino will retreat to the bench for the second time in the last three games after he went 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout Tuesday. Francisco Mejia will start behind the dish and bat eighth.

Rays' Mike Zunino: Day off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zunino is not in the lineup Sunday versus Cleveland, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Zunino started the past two games after missing the previous three contests with hip tightness, and he'll receive the day off Sunday after going 2-for-7 with a double. Francisco Mejia will work behind the plate in his place and bat eighth.

Rays' Mike Zunino: Doubles in return to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zunino (hip) went 1-for-3 with a double in a win over Cleveland on Friday.

The veteran backstop sat out the previous three games with hip tightness, but he authored a successful return in Friday's win. Francisco Mejia hit .417 (5-for-12) with two doubles, a home run and five RBI during Zunino's brief sabbatical, however, and he could conceivably begin eating a bit more into his teammate's playing time as a result.

Rays' Mike Zunino: Good to go Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zunino (hip) is starting behind the plate and batting ninth Friday at Cleveland, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Zunino was on the bench the last three games while dealing with tightness in his left hip, but he's ready to rejoin the starting nine Friday. The 30-year-old is 3-for-27 with a home run, a double and five walks in his past 11 contests.

Rays' Mike Zunino: Not starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zunino (hip) isn't starting Thursday's game against Cleveland, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Zunino will be out of the lineup for a third straight game as he continues to deal with left hip tightness. However, he appeared as a pinch hitter Wednesday and could be available off the bench once again. Francisco Mejia will take over behind the dish and bat eighth.

Rays' Mike Zunino: Won't start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zunino (hip) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

He'll be on the bench for a second consecutive game while he continues to deal with a tight left hip after picking up the injury in Monday's series opener. Francisco Mejia will log another start behind the dish Wednesday, but the Rays are seemingly hopeful that Zunino will be ready to catch Thursday in Cleveland.

Rays' Mike Zunino: Available off bench Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Kevin Cash said that Zunino (hip) is available off the bench Tuesday against Baltimore, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.

Zunino exited Monday's game with tightness in his left hip flexor and remained out of the lineup Tuesday. Given that he could be used off the bench, the backstop figures to have a solid chance of rejoining the starting nine for the series finale, though that decision may not be made until he's evaluated again Wednesday morning.

Rays' Mike Zunino: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zunino (hip) is not starting Tuesday's game against Baltimore, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Zunino exited Monday's game with tightness in his left hip flexor. It's possible the backstop was already in line for a rest, so it's unclear whether the hip issue forced him out of Tuesday's lineup. According to Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE, the catcher should be available off the bench and could rejoin the starting nine Wednesday.

Rays' Mike Zunino: Exits with hip injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zunino left Monday's game against the Orioles due to left hip flexor tightness, Bally Sports Sun reports.

Zunino will be considered day-to-day until further notice. Francisco Mejia could see more time behind the dish if Zunino is forced to miss additional time.

Rays' Mike Zunino: Not starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zunino is on the bench for Saturday's game against Atlanta.

The All-Star backstop went 0-for-3 with a walk and an RBI on Friday, and he is now hitting .182 with three free passes and five RBI in his last 10 games. Francisco Mejia gets the start at catcher Saturday night.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zunino went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo homer in Saturday's win over Toronto.

Zunino tied the game with a solo shot off Ross Stripling in the bottom of the third. He's now homered 19 times this season, trailing only Salvador Perez (20) among all backstops. No other catcher has hit more than 14.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zunino isn't starting the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against Cleveland, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rays' Mike Zunino: Homer tally up to 18
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zunino went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer in Wednesday's loss to Washington.

Zunino's third-inning homer marked the backstop's sixth long ball in his last 10 games. While Zunino is slashing an underwhelming .210/.271/.405, his 18 home runs and 36 RBI leave him as a solid fantasy catcher in most formats.

Rays' Mike Zunino: Goes yard again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zunino went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Nationals on Tuesday.

The slugging backstop had a quintessential Zunino line, as he struck out in his other three plate appearances. Despite the ongoing struggles making consistent contact, Zunino is currently leaving the yard more often than not when he does put wood on the ball -- he's homered in five of his last nine games, with those round trippers accounting for a majority of his eight hits in the sample.

Rays' Mike Zunino: Cracks home run Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zunino went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk against the Angels on Saturday.

Zunino took Jose Quintana deep with two out in the sixth inning for his 16th home run of the season, tying Austin Meadows for the team lead. The veteran catcher continues to provide the long ball for fantasy managers -- he's gone yard in back-to-back games and has a terrific .535 slugging percentage on the year -- but owns just .197 batting average and .291 on-base percentage.

Rays' Mike Zunino: Sitting again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zunino is not in the lineup Friday against the Angels. Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Zunino finds himself on the bench for the second straight contest, with Francisco Mejia receiving another start behind the plate for Tampa Bay.
