Don't forget about Mike Zunino


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/28/2013) Most Fantasy owners probably remember Mike Zunino as that overhyped prospect who killed them for three weeks before suffering some injury that he probably could have played through if he wasn't such a bum.

Then, there's what really happened: Despite struggling at Triple-A, a revolving door at catcher forced the Mariners to call up their top hitting prospect sooner than they may have liked, and given his upside at a weak position, Fantasy owners took a flier on him. He struggled at first before finding his stroke after about three weeks on the job, batting .324 (11 for 34) with a homer and a .912 OPS in 11 games, but then broke his hand on July 26 and spent the next month recovering from surgery.

I don't know about that first guy, but that second guy is as intriguing to me as ever. He tripled in his first rehab game Tuesday and has as clear of a path to regular playing time as Travis d'Arnaud of the Mets.

I don't know that I value him any more than d'Arnaud, who I've already said I'd have hard time squeezing into my lineup in a standard one-catcher league, but the upside makes him well worth monitoring down the stretch.


Mike Zunino begins rehab assignment


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2013) Mariners catcher Mike Zunino began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma Tuesday night for his broken hamate bone in his left hand, MLB.com reports. Zunino has been out since June 25 and played in his first game since the injury.

Batting second, Zunino went 1 for 2 with a walk and a triple in the game. He scored twice and certainly appeared to swing the bat well. He could return shortly for Seattle, according to manager Eric Wedge.

"He'll catch about five innings today, [be the designated hitter] tomorrow, and then we'll go from there," Wedge said Tuesday. "Keep building him up so he'll be down there for the rest of this week, and we'll see where we're at."
